PHOTOS – Like J.Lo and Ben Affleck, these exes who flirt together again – Gala

Backlash between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck? 17 years after their breakup, the “Bennifers” seem to have given the cover to everyone’s surprise. Even if other couples have done the same thing before them, as this non-exhaustive list proves.

It’s the big comeback of a flagship couple of the 2000s. Glimpsed together in Montana on a romantic getaway, J.Lo and Ben Affleck are signing a flashback that it would have been difficult to bet on 17 years ago, when the ex-fiancés ended a beautiful two-year story, between 2002 and 2004.

Proof that the stars, who sometimes get us used to stormy ruptures, also know how to listen to their feelings to put the pieces back together: this was notably the case of William and Kate Middleton. In 2007, the Cambridges broke six years after their meeting on the benches of St Andrews University, but patched up after a few months. Across the Channel, the royal family also saw Prince Charles marry Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, years after their breakup in 1981 and a scandalous affair behind Princess Diana’s back.

Brief separations

In the club of the reconciled, however, they are numerous to quickly realized their mistake. This is for example the case of Bella Hadid and The Weeknd, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo , Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones and even some powerful men. Before marrying Brigitte, Emmanuel Macron was thus briefly distant of the teacher, then married, the time to finish her studies in Paris. Melania and Donald Trump also briefly separated in the early 2000s.

Tomer Sisley as Ben Affleck

Others, on the other hand, waited longer before giving themselves a second chance. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin first loved each other in 2016, before reconciling two years later and passing the ring on. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth also took two years before finding again in 2015. Then to break again during the summer of 2019.

We can also quote Pink and Carey Hart, used to breakups / reconciliations, while closer to us, we remember the backfire between Cécilia and Richard Attias, after two years away from each other, that of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Carlos Sotto Mayor, or reconciliation between Tomer Sisley and Sandra de Matteis, who met in 2016 after 17 years apart. Like J.Lo and Ben Affleck.
