  • Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have gotten back together after a week-long getaway together.
  • Sources say it was Ben Affleck who "pursued" JLo; he'd reach out to her "any time he hears about things going on with her".
  • Ben and Jen have reportedly been corresponding since February before jetting off to Montana last week.

Bennifer is back!

That's right, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have reunited 17 years after calling off their engagement.

Though they just spent a week away together after they were spotted together at JLo's house in early May and again at Global Citizen's Vax Live concert, TMZ reports things didn't just go from 0 to 100. In fact, the two had been corresponding via email, or, as the publication put it, love letters, due to the loving and longing nature of it all, on Ben's end, since February.

A source tells E! News it was Ben who "pursued" Jen. Ben reaches out to Jennifer "any time he hears about things going on with her", they said, adding he's always "very kind and complimentary".

"She and Ben are talking and plan to see each other again," the insider said.

News of the couple's new relationship comes shortly after Ben Affleck's split from Ana de Armas in January, and JLo and A-Rod called it quits in April.

Though A-Rod joined the singer in the Dominican Republic where she was filming trying to save their relationship, things didn't work out for the two.

Sources say, despite the timing of it all, JLo and Ben, though they'd been corresponding, did not meet up during that time, and the On The Floor singer has made it clear "she's not interested in rekindling anything with A-Rod and is done".
