Jennifer Lopez’s cheeky answer to Ben Affleck question. Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda are rereleasing their song, “Love Make the World Go Round,” on Tuesday, five years after they first created it as a tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
The song doesn’t appear to be the only recent revival in Lopez’s life, as photos have shown her spending time this summer with former flame Ben Affleck. The images have reignited the “Bennifer” phenomenon of the early 2000s, but Lopez gave a tongue-in-cheek response when Hoda Kotb hinted at her potentially rekindled romance in an interview alongside Miranda that aired Tuesday on TODAY.
Hoda said that every time she sees a photo of Lopez with Affleck that Lopez looks happy, so she asked the actor and singer if that is true.
“The song is out, five years since we’ve done it. And I believe that that message of loving one another and coming together and love, is never more relevant than it is right now,” Lopez said with a smile.
“Wait, it’s me you’re talking to, you know that,” Hoda replied.
“I know,” Lopez said. “You can call me. You have my number!”
Affleck, 48, and Lopez, 51, split up in 2004, but signs have abounded that they are back together, whether it’s photos of them on a Montana getaway, Instagram messages by Lopez, or Affleck appearing to wear the same watch he wore when they were together in the early 2000s. The sighting in Montana came just weeks after Lopez and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez announced their separation in April after being engaged.
