Before Jennifer Lopez, 51, was engaged to the former baseball player, Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez, 45, Jennifer dated actor Ben Affleck and they were dubbed one of the biggest 'power couples' of the 2000s, by tabloids.

Simply known back then as 'Bennifer,' Lopez and Affleck took pop culture by storm after they started dating in the early 2000s.

The Hollywood power couple – who starred together in 2003's Gigli and 2004's Jersey Girl – even got engaged in November 2002 but never ended up actually walking down the aisle, as two years later in 2004, they broke off their engagement and ended their relationship, sending shockwaves through the masses.

But after taking a 17-year-long break from their relationship, it seems the couple have reignited their romance, throwing the media world into a frenzy, after the pair were spotted recently together, on multiple occasions, after Jennifer's public split from A-Rod in April.

In photos obtained by Daily Mail, Lopez and Affleck were spotted driving in a car together in Montana over Mother's Day weekend. The pair also attended the Vax Live concert in L.A. last week, although they reportedly arrived separately.

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's longtime friend, weighed in on the rumours during an interview with the "Today" show on Tuesday, May 11, the actor said: "It's a fascinating story. I hope it's true. I love them both. I hope it's true. That would be awesome."
