Today in History Is Repeating Itself, What Is Time, Even, Ben Affleck was just seen browsing engagement rings. At Tiffany & Co. For Jennifer Lopez. Again. Page Six published exclusive photos of Ben shopping for rings at a Tiffany’s in Century City, California, with both his mom and son accompanying him. It’s unclear if he purchased anything, but there’s no doubt that Ben is looking at rings in these photos.
As a reminder, Ben proposed to J.Lo back in November 2002, giving her a 6.1 carat pink diamond that was apparently $2.5 million. At the time, J.Lo told Diane Sawyer that the proposal was “traditional but also in a very spectacular way, as of course Ben would do it…it was very, very beautiful.”
I mean…THIS RING!
Oh, and November, by the way, was the same month Jennifer released the “Jenny from the Block” video, changing our lives forever. So yeah. A lot was happening.
Unfortunately, the couple called off their engagement just days before their wedding in September 2003, releasing the following joint statement:
“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date. When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families, and our friends.”
But please note: they didn’t actually break up until January 2004, news J.Lo’s rep confirmed in a statement statement saying “I am confirming the report that Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Ben Affleck. At this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy.”
Obviously, these two went their separate ways for literal years, and got back together a few months ago in the wake of J.Lo’s split with A-Rod. Looks like things are getting super serious again, though, judging from Ben’s latest activities!
