Awkward! Ben Affleck’s ex wife Jennifer Garner keeps distance from new wife Jennifer Lopez on joint outing with kids after complicated love history

Ben Affleck was spotted on a joint family outing with his wife Jennifer Lopez and ex-wife Jennifer Garner in Los Angeles on Sunday. 

Garner, 51, appeared to keep her distance from the actor, 51, and the singer, 54, as she walked ahead of the pair with their son Samuel, 11, and daughter Seraphina, 15, after leaving a musical performance. 

Meanwhile Affleck and Lopez — who recently gave a glimpse into her raunchy love life with Ben — walked behind with her daughter Emme, 15, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, 55. 

Affleck was spotted chatting with Emme, with Lopez walking arm-in-arm with him, while Garner walked a number of steps ahead with their kids in the front. 

The trio have a famously complicated relationship history. Lopez and Affleck were engaged but split shortly before he met and married Garner, and Lopez moved on and wed Anthony. After they both got divorced, they rekindled their romance in 2021, before tying the knot in 2022.

Affleck and Garner have been amicably co-parenting their three children since their divorce in 2018, following a 13 year-long marriage. 

The former couple wed in 2005, and split in 2015. Their divorce was finalized three years later.

Their co-parenting relationship has been famously strong over the years, to the point of setting off frequent rumors they would reunite. 

Since then, they have both moved on – Ben with Lopez and Jennifer with boyfriend John Miller.

Lopez recently confessed she and Ben still ‘both have PTSD’ from the glare of the spotlight on their first romance.

They dated in the early 2000s, sending their fanbases into a frenzy and attracting a storm of publicity around their infamous mega-flop movie Gigli.

They reignited their relationship in 2021 and got married the following year, once again becoming one of the most talked-about couples in showbiz.

Lopez shared in a new Variety interview that ‘we both have PTSD’ from their initial experience, but explained that in their present life as a married couple ‘we’re older now. We’re wiser.’

J-Lo added: ‘We also know what’s important, what’s really important in life, and it’s not so much what other people think. It’s about being true to who you are.’

The couple first got engaged near the end of 2002 but broke the engagement in late 2003 before ending their relationship entirely in 2004.

She then went on to marry Anthony. They were together from 2004 until their divorce in 2014. She was also previously married to Ojana Noa and Cris Judd.
