This Saturday, the multifaceted star Jennifer López turned 52 years old and celebrated it aboard a boat in the waters of the French Riviera.
Sharing on her Instagram account a photo session in a bikini, with a Dolce & Gabbana dressing gown, showing off her unquestionably spectacular body, and - at the end of the gallery - an image in which she appears kissing with actor Ben Affleck (California, 48 years), of which he was a couple between 2002 and 2004. The publication is already viral: it accumulates almost six million "likes" on the social network in which Lopez has more than 166 million followers.

The snapshot has become the official confirmation of a romance that was already taken for granted since last June the two actors were caught kissing in a Malibu restaurant.
A second chance for a courtship that in its day was baptized with the acronym 'Bennifer' and that now, turned into the most modern label #Bennifer, makes the networks boil.
They met at the beginning of the century on the set of the reviled romantic comedy
Gigli (A Dangerous Relationship),
and it was precisely a birthday, that of the protagonist
of Wall Street Scammers
at 33, which also served to ratify the first part of their relationship, in 2002. They got engaged the following year, with an immense 6.1-carat pink diamond from Harry Winston, but they canceled the wedding just two days after The quote: "When we started to seriously consider hiring three decoy brides for three different locations, we realized something was wrong," they alleged at the time.
This pressure from the media and photographers is always blamed for the breakdown of "a genuine love."
But today the tables have turned and the singer, one of the most followed people in the world on Instagram, has the power of communication in the palm of her hand, to set rhythms and control narratives to her liking.

When they fell in love for the first time, Lopez had just ended a relationship with the dancer Cris Judd, just as now he has just closed a stage with the former baseball player Alex Rodriguez with whom he got engaged. The interpreter of
Batman v Superman,
for his part, announced last January the end of his engagement with the Spanish-Cuban actress Ana de Armas. With both of them single, in March, “Ben contacted her to see how she was doing and they have had dinner together a couple of times this last month,” she told
an anonymous source close to the singer, when in spring Affleck was photographed leaving her house on several occasions. “The chemistry between them is incredible. They have picked it up right where they left it and are enjoying each other's company. "
