Have J.Lo and Affleck Split?

6 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez is denying reports she has torn off her engagement ring and split from fiance Ben Affleck following allegations he spent a night out partying with strippers. Lopez has moved to quash the story following reports she arrived in Los Angeles and declared she was single last Thursday - the night before their troubled on-screen collaboration Gigli hit cinemas. The singer and actress had been awoken on Wednesday by her radio presenter sister Lynda, who asked her live on air about the National Enquirer's allegations her fiance had spent the night with strippers at a Vancouver lap dancing bar earlier that month. Lopez stated that, "It sounds like Ben. I'll have to ask him." A source confides to the New York Post that Lopez, who had taken her engagement ring off, then fled the Winnipeg, Canada, set of her new movie Shall We Dance and headed for her Los Angeles home on Thursday. J.Lo then arrived in New York for a photo shoot for America's W magazine on Saturday, where she was reportedly "very cranky". After she finished working, Lopez took 15 pals, including rapper Q-Tip, to Koi restaurant, before partying in Shelter nightclub where "they rang up a $9,000 bar tab in the Vip room". The source adds, "Jennifer kept talking about the 'drama, drama, drama', and told several people she was single before hitting the dance floor for the rest of the night. She was not wearing the engagement ring." Meanwhile, Affleck pulled out of a planned interview with Entertainment Tonight correspondent Chris Booker - the boyfriend of Lopez's sister - claiming he was "too sick" to attend. The actor has also refused to take a lie detector test as demanded by the Enquirer, who maintain their article - which Affleck's spokesman described as "garbage" - is entirely accurate, and supported by documentary evidence. However, a source close to Lopez insists the reports are all false, telling the New York Daily News, "She doesn't give a f*** about the story. She thinks it's funny. The wedding is still on." »

J.Lo Given a Wake Up Call to Ben's Strip Club Suit

1 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez was told live on radio about fiance Ben Affleck's threatened lawsuit over claims he visited a strip club by sister Lynda. The Daredevil hunk is considering legal action after the American magazine the National Enquirer reported he and fellow actor Christian Slater had been captured on video tape in Brandi's Exotic Nightclub, Vancouver Canada on July 17. The magazine alleged Affleck heavily tipped the strippers - some of whom reportedly came back to Slater's house with the pair - in order to buy their silence. Lynda - host on New York's Blink 102.7 radio show - told Jennifer and listeners on Wednesday morning, "Oh gosh. They say Ben wants to sue The National Enquirer because they put a story in that he, when he was in Vancouver, he went to a strip club with other actors and that he was tipping the girls a lot and stuff." A tired sounding J.Lo replied, "He, w-he ... it sounds like Ben. He, uh, does tip a lot ... I don't know about this. I'll have to ask him." When Lynda's co-host and boyfriend Chris Booker asked Jennifer if all the publicity surrounding the two had taken its toll on their engagement, the Latina star was realistic. Jen answered, "We're human, so, yeah, sometimes it bothers us. But you know, for the most part you just try to take it with a grain of salt. I mean what can you do? Sometimes they're gonna, they're gonna write things or concentrate on the wrong things. It's just entertainment is what I try to always think about." »
