Any remaining questions about Jennifer Lopez’s feelings for Ben Affleck can be put to bed now.
In her latest Instagram post – a fairly straightforward promotion for womenswear label Aritizia – the multi-talented star appeared in a simple white outfit and cozy puffer jacket, which was the topic of her post. “Comfortable morning at my Super Puff,” she wrote in the caption on December 21.
And nothing says “that’s just doing my morning routine” from an (empty) cup of coffee in my hand. Nice gram for sure, but not too much, right? wrong. Fans and followers were quick to notice that the mug in question had a giant “B” design on it. Obviously neither Lopez’s first nor last name begins with a B. Nor do the names of her parents or children, 14-year-old twins Emme and Maximillion. boyfriend, but…
“B AS IN BEN” one commenter wrote, echoing the sentiments of many.
Honestly, a genius move. The rekindled romance between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has been the talk of the town since they were first spotted together in April 2021, so this Easter egg basically includes the extra eyeballs on the post. He also paints them low-key as a “normal” and “bonded” couple with minimal effort. He has his own coffee cup in place (maybe)! Maybe even take this photo! Ben Affleck: Boyfriend on Instagram?
Really, we’re not knocking on this. The paparazzi were notorious for stalking the couple the first time, and the media was less than kind about the whole thing. So to see Affleck and Lopez turn the tables and control the narrative after twenty years? Hassan. to. With them.
Lopez even took an offensive stance earlier this week, speaking out when Affleck’s recent comments about his struggles with alcohol abuse led him to believe he was blaming his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. The singer told that when reports started to surface that Lopez was mad at him for the controversy People on December 18 that “this story is simply not true”.
She continued, “That’s not how I feel…I couldn’t have had more respect for Laban as a father, father and partner.” Hey, I’ve got the mug to prove it. This is Jennifer Lopez’s world, and the rest of us live in it.
