It was recently reported that Jennifer, 51, and Ben, 48, had been spending more time together following the breakdown of the Jenny From The Block singer’s relationship with Alex Rodriguez, to whom she was engaged.
Jennifer and Ben were an item in the early 2000s, becoming engaged in 2002 before splitting up a couple of years later.
During an episode of US TV show Jeopardy!, which aired on Friday May 14, one of the clues asked: ‘As a couple, they were known jointly as “Bennifer”’ – the answer of course being Jennifer and Ben.
What’s more, there was an entire category on the show dedicated to the US state of Montana… where the musician and Gone Girl actor recently jetted off to for a secluded getaway.
One viewer pointed out that as Jeopardy! is filmed several weeks before it airs, it appears the clues ‘manifested’ the A-listers’ supposed romantic reunion.
‘Excuse me but Jeopardy (filmed weeks in advance) manifested Bennifer 2021 AND their getaway to Montana with the clues that aired tonight!!!’ they wrote.
‘“As a couple, they were jointly known as ‘Bennifer’” IS #JEOPARDY MISS CLEO AND/OR TROLLING US ALL?! Also can’t believe the guy got it wrong. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Iconic couple,’ another fan tweeted.
‘There was a #Bennifer question tonight on Jeopardy, so even they knew it was coming months ago,’ someone else remarked.
One viewer said that they were ‘freaking out’ by the clue, exclaiming: ‘HOW DID THE PRODUCERS KNOW THIS WOULD HAPPEN.’
‘We have realised we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,’ the joint statement said.
‘We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.
‘Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.’
