Last week, it was reported that she viewed the Good Will Hunting actor as ‘the one that got away,’ after they split in 2004.  

‘Jennifer always saw Ben as the one that got away,’ an insider told Page Six. ‘She was crushed after they broke up, though she felt at the time that she had no other choice but to call off their engagement.’  

It was also said that following many PDA-packed outings — including one steamy kissing session at Nobu Malibu — and getaways including Miami and Big Sky, Montana, that ex-fiance Alex Rodriguez had come to terms with the fact the relationship was ‘over now.’ 

‘When they first split, he wanted to work things out, and still held on to hope that he and J.Lo would get back together,’ a source told ET. ‘He’s come to terms with the fact that it’s over now.’

But in a seemingly scorned move, the sports correspondent was photographed spending time with Affleck’s ex Lindsay Shookus earlier in June, although his rep told Page Six ‘there is absolutely zero there,’ and that they had been friends for 15 years.

In another seemingly bold move he also splashed out on a $200k/month rental property in the Hamptons — just one mile away from the JLo Beauty mogul.  

It was said that it was nothing more than a convenience as he takes weekly meetings in Bristol, Connecticut, however.
