JLo and Affleck admitted that they initially preferred to keep their renewed romance off social media.

Ben Affleck delves into the media pressure that contributed to his breakup with Jennifer Lopez in 2004 and how they navigate their renewed relationship today.

When Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck broke up in 2004, they cited relentless media scrutiny as a significant factor in their breakup. Fast-forward to their reunion in 2021, and the couple once again found themselves under the public eye, and Affleck feels it wasn’t “fair” to ask JLo to be more discrete about their relationship.

Affleck admitted that he initially preferred to keep their renewed romance off social media. “Getting back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a relationship on social media,’” he told the Daily Mail.

While addressing their 2004 breakup, Affleck said, “When Jen and I broke up before,” it was because of the “massive amount of scrutiny around our private life.”

Affleck soon realized that this request was unfair to Lopez, who had built much of her career and public persona around being open with her fans.

“Then I sort of realized it’s not a fair thing to ask,” he told DM. “It’s sort of like, you’re gonna marry a boat captain and you go, ‘Well, I don’t like the water.’ We’re just two people with different kinds of approaches trying to learn to compromise.”
