Ben Affleck raved over JLo's 'phenomenal' butt before getting back together, his ex claims

BEN Affleck raved over girlfriend Jennifer Lopez's posterior before they rekindled their relationship, according to an ex who was seeing Ben at the time.

Katie Cherry, who dated the actor for three months in 2019, said that Ben called JLo's tush "phenomenal" while the two were briefly together.


JLo, 51, reignited her romance with the Academy Award-winner, 49, earlier this year after spending 18 years apart. They initially split in 2003, just days before their planned wedding.

JLo broke off her engagement to Alex Rodriquez in April, then immediately got back with Ben.

But in 2019, Ben was apparently still thinking and talking about his ex, and specifically, one feature in particular: her legendary lower half.

Ex Katie dated Ben for three months after they met on the exclusive dating app Raya and started chatting.

She told InTouch Weekly: “When he and I were together, I asked him, ‘What was J. Lo’s a** like?’ I had to ask him. She’s an icon. She’s awesome."

"He said it’s ‘phenomenal,'” the short-term partner said. “He seemed very enthusiastic about it."

BOOTY BACKSTORY

Back in 2002, Ben famously appeared in JLo’s Jenny From The Block music video, showcasing how taken he was with her tush even then.

After the pair reunited, Ben was photographed rubbing JLo’s butt on a massive $140M mega-yacht in St Tropez, recreating the beloved booty boat moment.

People went wild for the photos as music video memories floated across many fans' minds.

Nautical nostalgia aside, Ben and Jen seem future-focused, intent on getting it right the second time.

An insider told Us Weekly: “The past few months have been a real whirlwind.

“They’re well aware some cynics still look at it as a big flashy attention grab and roll their eyes at the speed of it all, but it doesn’t faze them one iota.

"They’re fully committed to taking the next steps and spending the rest of their lives together.”

Meanwhile, ex Katie keeps a low profile. Her Instagram page notes she is a "Film Composer, producer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, mother and patriot."

She seems to have happily moved on, welcoming a child with a new partner.

BEN'S BLAME UPSETS FANS

Ben was slammed for recently saying he felt "trapped" in his marriage to Jennifer Garner and that it escalated his drinking.

The actor went after his ex-wife during an interview with Howard Stern where he claimed the unhappy marriage contributed to his alcohol use.

The Argo star told the radio host, referring to his time with the actress: “Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped.

"I was like, ‘I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution."

The former couple was married for a decade before calling it quits in 2015 and share three children together: daughters, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, nine.

Fans may be loving the JLo and Ben content, but they were not happy with the star for his comments.

One tweeted: "You blame your ex-wife for drinking? You were a drunk before you married her!
