Jennifer Lopez, 52, and Ben Affleck, 49, had first started dating in 2002. When Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer at the time, he did it with a ring that reportedly cost $2.5 million
In 2003, however, the couple postponed their engagement before eventually calling it off the following year - blaming the breakup on the pressures of living under constant scrutiny of paparazzi.
“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date,” the Hollywood stars said in their 2003 joint statement.
After calling off the engagement in 2004, Jennifer Lopez married Marc Anthony the same year. Ben Affleck, meanwhile, married Jennifer Garner in 2005.
Both marriages ended in divorce, and Bennifer - as they have been christened - rekindled their romance in 2021.
