Wish they would make up their minds already :p


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hollywood celebrity couple Ben Affleck (news) and Jennifer Lopez (news) have split up, at least temporarily, after postponing their wedding over a media frenzy, People magazine reported on Sunday.


The magazine's Web site, http://people.aol.com, quoted unidentified sources as saying Affleck decided he wanted out of the relationship, but it was not certain if the break-up will be permanent.


Representatives for the pair could not be reached for comment. People magazine reported that the representatives said they had no knowledge of the break-up.


The pair, who reportedly planned to wed on Sunday at an estate in the hills near Santa Barbara, California, said in a joint statement last Wednesday that they had postponed the nuptials because of unwanted publicity.


Lopez, 33, and Affleck, 31, are currently America's hottest celebrity couple, but doubts were cast over their engagement when stories surfaced in tabloids and magazines last month about Affleck visiting a strip club without Lopez in July. Lopez publicly shrugged off Affleck's night out.


The couple also suffered bad publicity when their first movie together, "Gigli," was panned by critics and flopped at the box office in the summer.

September 13, 2003


Sources: Splitsville for Ben and J.Lo


Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, who just days ago were planning their weekend wedding, have split up, sources close to the couple tell PEOPLE.
The break-up comes in the wake of their decision Wednesday to postpone their Sunday wedding in Montecito, Calif., before as many as 400 guests. The couple blamed the delay on excessive media attention surrounding the event, but reports persisted that Affleck was having second thoughts about the nuptials. A PEOPLE source says it was Affleck who initiated the split.

While it was unclear whether the separation was permanent, Lopez was "devastated," according to one friend. The star was in tears, sources said, on Wednesday as she called guests telling them of the wedding's postponement.

Lopez, accompanied by friends and a bodyguard, went for a very public jog and swim -- at one point changing into a bathing suit behind a phalanx of towel-bearing guards -- Saturday afternoon along Miami's South Beach, not far from her 11-bedroom house in Miami Beach, where she flew solo on Friday from Los Angeles. Affleck was believed to still be in Los Angeles, though some reports had him heading to Las Vegas for tonight's Shane Mosely-Oscar De La Hoya fight.

The split caps a tumultuous summer for the couple, whose romance became public in July 2002 just days after she divorced Cris Judd. They have endured brutal reviews for their performances in the film "Gigli," while tabloid reports have accused Affleck of misbehaving with strippers during a late-night visit to a Vancouver nightclub (reports he vehemently denied). Lopez publicly stuck by her fiancee ("for me, it wasn't an issue," she told W magazine), and plans continued apace for their wedding -- his first, her third.

Ken Sunshine, Affleck's spokesman, said he had no knowledge of a split. Lopez' spokesman Dan Klores said he believed the couple was still together, but had not spoken to Lopez in several days.

During their time together, the pair -- who met on the set of "Gigli" -- generated worldwide attention, costarring in a sexy music video for her song "Jenny from the Block" and purchasing each other extravagant gifts, including a Rolls-Royce, a Harry Winston bracelet of white and yellow diamonds and 6.1 carat pink diamond solitaire Affleck gave Lopez as an engagement ring. Nevertheless, they thought of themselves as working-class kids -- she from the Bronx, he from Boston -- who shared similar values. As a teetotaler, Lopez was also seen as healthy for Affleck, who is a recovering alcoholic.

The couple will be together again -- at least on screen. Their second costarring vehicle, "Jersey Girl," is set for release next year.



I am not surprised by this news and kind of saw it coming when their movie "Gigli" flopped and they postponed their wedding.

Surely you guys aren’t blaming this breakup entirely on Jennifer are you? How many of you guys would’ve proposed to a woman with Jennifer’s track record?

Who actually believed that this relationship/marriage would’ve survived?

Even if Jennifer was serious about marriage this time around, Ben’s little torrid night with those strippers/hookers in Canada didn’t help the situation at all.

Maybe this was all a publicity stunt. After all, these people have millions and can afford to waste money as if it was water. They don’t care. Within the next month or two, they’ll each have new love interests.

J-Ho is at it again. And Ben was a hoe from the get go. You know how many hollywood starlets he's shagged?

I knew it would not last. But it seems weird that Ben is going to LAS VEGAS. Hmmm....me thinks someone is trying to distract the media.

Well it could be a possiblity that they are getting hitched in Vegas.

What do you think? NO?

I hope it's over for good so we will be spared all the stories about them.

And, I agree with Freewoman. Ben doesn't have that great a track record with women either. Really, I'm not a fan of either of them.

i heard they were in Savannah the other day going to the court house but it was to get him a gun permit or something like that. There is absolutely zero chance of them keeping it a secret if they are planning on doing anything in the south...:lol:

I also heard she gave him back the ring but someone is trying to hang on? I wonder who? hmmm, maybe its the least likely one who would have a gun and need a permit?? :eek:

I think they are both just plain. However, Matt is really talented which could make up for the lack of looks and height...:tape:

THey BOTH SUCK! No talent hack wannabe hollywood starlets! She was good in Selena then it was all down hill with bad music and worse movie roles. What the hell was that Enough but a rip off of sleeping with the enemy!!! And what was that Maid in Manhattan but Pretty Woman Remake done shoddily!!

J LO YOU SUCK! Get an orignal script already and stop copying Julia Roberts you skank!

And what the hell was that Daredevil crap? And that GIgli? UGh! Stop wasting that money that could go to a worthy cause! And that jack ryan movie with the nuclear bomb blast? UGH UGH UGH!!! Some serial killer needs to run rampant in Hollywood and destroy these people before they send us down a dank dreary cultural suicide death drop to oblivion.

at least kill bill is coming out. :lol:
