Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Lopez, 51, were in “regular contact by email” since early February, a source claimed to the site. Their correspondence began after J.Lo traveled to the Dominican Republic to film “Shotgun Wedding.”
The emails allegedly were more “loving and longing for Jen” than friendly. In his messages, the actor reportedly told the “Pa Ti” singer how beautiful she looked in photos from the Caribbean.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez allegedly told the actor he could “own her heart” with his pen. Ben Affleck was shooting his film “The Tender Bar” with George Clooney in Boston at the time of their exchanges. J.Lo was engaged to 45-year-old A-Rod at the time, as reported by Page Six in March that they broke up following rumors that he was unfaithful.
Their allegedly flirty communication apparently continued throughout Jennifer Lopez’s time on the set of her upcoming movie, which wrapped filming in April. The source told TMZ that there was no evidence that the pair ever got physical with each other during that time.
