Jennifer Lopez wears Bennifer necklace in romantic nod to husband Ben Affleck amid rumor of rocky marriage
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez shared some pictures of herself with some interesting jewellery on Instagram on Thursday, November 10, in an apparent nod to her love for husband Ben Affleck. The posts come amid rumors that all is not well in the Bennifer world.
The pictures appeared to be taken at a charity event with Lopez looking stunning in not one but two different outfits. In the first photo, she looked gorgeous in a white, silk Halston plunging gown paired with a white fur coat. She styled her hair into a neat, traditional bun displaying a set of exquisite teardrop-shaped natural yellow and white diamond earrings that Raven Fine Jewelers made especially for her. But one of two tiny necklaces, bearing the revealing inscription "Jennifer & Ben," was unquestionably the focal point of the image. She also had a hummingbird charm around her neck. She completed the look with a bare cosmetics palette and black smokey eye makeup.
In the next picture, the lens drew back to show her opulent surroundings: a lovely table and chairs with white candles, surrounded by lush greenery. The next photos featured her taking mirror selfies wearing a black Ellie Saab gown, stunning diamond necklace paired with matching diamond flower earrings and a black fur coat. A frozen beverage and poker chips were seen on a table in the final image. Lopez included the hashtags #CharityEvent, #GingerVibezz, #DayToNight, #QuickChange, #IYKYK, and #TBT in her captions for the pictures.
Lopez's 226 million followers were quick to gush about her look and especially the necklace. “When you slay in absolutely ANY look!” wrote one follower under the post, while another commented, “LOVE THAT NECKLACE !!!!” A third wrote “Mrs Affleck looking stunning. Can we get one with the hubby?” Another user also gushed about the jewellery "Bennifer necklace!!", another follower shared the sentiment, commenting, "So romantic her necklace"
Just days before, on November 3, Lopez 53, posted pictures of herself wearing a tiny diamond necklace with the initials "Mrs." as a reference to her recent union with Ben Affleck. The singer was also spotted in August, 2022 walking the streets of Portofino, Italy, wearing a "BEN" necklace that Ben Affleck had given her for her 52nd birthday as per People. "With the custom piece Ben created for Jennifer, it clearly communicated their love, but it's also a reminder of their capacity for change and growth," Beth Bugdaycay, the creative director and co-founder of Foundrae, told E! News at the time.
Ben Affleck, 50, and Jennifer Lopez, 53, rekindled their romance in April 2021 after their 2004 engagement fell through. A year later, in April 2022, Ben proposed with an eye-catching green diamond engagement ring. In July 2022, they exchanged vows in a private, unexpected wedding in Las Vegas, and in August, they had an extravagant celebration at Ben's sizable Georgia estate for relatives and friends.
The latest show of love from Lopez comes on heels of rumors that her marriage with Affleck might be on the rocks as she has been putting her work before her husband. "She had him fooled for a while, but Ben's realizing Jennifer is as career-driven as she ever was," a trusted source told RadarOnline. Lopez was also reportedly not happy with Affleck's smoking and untidy habits, causing problems between the newlyweds.
