Jennifer Lopez Says “It’s Never Been Better” Amidst Ben Affleck Romance Rumors

Jennifer Lopez is living her best life. 

The multi-hyphenate performer has made headlines many times this year, from her inauguration ceremony performance to her public break-up from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez in April. But the JLo and A-Rod split was soon superseded by rumors of a renewed relationship with her 2000s-era ex Ben Affleck.

Despite the end of an engagement and whisperings of a new romance, Lopez said she’s having the “best time” of her life. 

The 51-year-old singer has been spotted showing off that happiness while cozied up to Affleck: Most recently, the two were seen having a family friendly Fourth of July.

On Friday, Lopez and Affleck were seen enjoying a day out at Universal Studios Hollywood in California with their kids, according to photos and reports from Page Six and Entertainment Weekly. The next day, the two were seen enjoying a walk together in coordinated beige ensembles, according to photos obtained by Page Six and People.

While neither Lopez or Affleck has confirmed a relationship rekindling, Lopez said she is satisfied with the current love in her life. 

“I love all the love that’s coming my way right now,” Lopez said. “I just want everybody to know that it’s the best time. It’s the best time of my life.”

Lopez said her current positive outlook inspired her to release her latest song “Cambia el Paso,” a collaboration with Rauw Alejandro released Monday. Lopez said “Cambia el Paso” is a song about change and “taking a step” which she says really resonates with her right now. 

Reports of Lopez and Rodriguez splitting began in March while she was in the Dominican Republic filming her upcoming rom-com “Shotgun Wedding,” starring opposite Josh Duhamel. 

The couple made a joint statement confirming to the public they were still together, but in April they doubled back and said they “are better as friends and look forward to remaining so.” Lopez said when she returned to the states after filming wrapped on “Shotgun Wedding,” she wanted to get into the studio immediately to record the new song. 

“I think some people really get inspired when they’re heartbroken … to write music when they were in pain. For me, it’s the opposite. When I feel really good, I really feel like I do my best music,” she said.
