Former flames! Ben Affleck may no longer be dating ex Katie Cherry but that doesn’t mean she’s no longer in the spotlight.

Speaking exclusively with In Touch, the musician divulged details on everything from their first date to Jennifer Lopez‘s, ahem, pert booty.

“So, we met online,” Katie revealed in December 2021, specifically referring to Raya. “It was in June 2019. And we FaceTimed for four months before we met. It wasn’t every day, but it was every once in a while.” She added that their first date happened at “some rooftop bar in Santa Monica.”

“He’s very sweet, super charming and super funny, and I was like, ‘Hey, this guy is kind of cute.’ He definitely, definitely was looking for something really deep and meaningful for sure.”

She even recalled one evening when she asked about his now-girlfriend J. Lo’s famous derriere.

“When he and I were together, I asked him, ‘What was J. Lo’s ass like?’ I had to ask him. She’s an icon. She’s awesome, and he said it’s ‘phenomenal,’” Katie explained.

Ben had been spotted out and about with Katie on several occasions in 2019, appearing at the UNICEF Masquerade Ball in West Hollywood and the Commerce casino together.

The actor finalized his divorce with Jennifer Garner in 2018 and enjoyed spending time with Katie following his sobriety setback. At the time, however, a source told In Touch their relationship was “nothing serious.”
