  • Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are back together, several sources have confirmed.
  • The news comes shortly after the Justice League star was spotted outside the singer's home.
  • Insiders say the two have just spent a week-long vacation together. "It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy," a source says.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are officially back together! 

Though sources said the two were "just friends" when the Justice League actor was spotted outside JLo's house recently, insiders have now confirmed the A-listers have rekindled their romance after a week-long trip to Montana together after both attending Global Citizen's Vax Live concert, according to E! News.

"She had a great time with Ben," a source tells People of their mini-vacay. "She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him." 

In photos obtained by The Daily Mail, the couple was seen driving around near a resort in Big Sky, where the actor has a home. 

"[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy," a second source told the publication. 

The news comes shortly after the singer called off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez in April after the couple spent four years together; Ben Affleck also split from Knives Out star Ana de Armas in January. 

The couple, who starred in the films Jersey Girl and Gigli together, first dated in 2002 and got engaged shortly after. But in 2003, days before their wedding, they briefly called things off. They officially split in early 2004.

JLo went on to marry Marc Anthony in June 2004, and welcomed twins, Emme and Max, while Ben Affleck tied the knot one year later in 2005 with Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares children Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
