In 2004, after 18 months of relationship, Ben Affleck and JLo called off their engagement. The actor, however, was happy to help his former lover when her marriage to Anthony collapsed.
It was the singer’s mother, Guadalupe Lopez, who contacted Ben for advice via email on July 12.
“Guadalupe reached out to Ben over email. She wanted advice for Jennifer,” a source reveals. “She always liked and trusted him. [Ben] replied back on email, wished her well and offered what he could,” reports Us Weekly.
In 2005, Ben Affleck married Jennifer Garner, with whom he has two daughters, while his ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez married Marc Anthony a few months after their breakup.
Three days after the email exchanges, Lopez and Anthony announced their divorce in a joint statement.
Sources claim that the jealousy of Anthony and his habit of wanting to control the career of his wife pushed the singer to leave.
