The much ballyhooed engagement of movie stars Lopez and Affleck has been officially called off, a spokesman for the singer/actress said on January 22, 2004. The celebrity couple were supposed to marry last September but at the last minute called the wedding off, blaming the postponement on the media frenzy their planned nuptials had created. Since then they have been seen together in public many times, although there were widespread rumors that they were splitting up. Reuters/Mike Segar

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have reunited after he was spotted spending time with her mom, a report says.

Affleck and Lopez, who rekindled their romance last month, reunited in Los Angeles Friday after being apart for a few days, People reported, citing an unnamed insider.

Earlier in the week, Affleck, 48, was in Las Vegas where he was seen bonding with the "Hustlers" actress' mom, Guadalupe Rodriguez. The "Justice League" star was directing an undisclosed project in the Nevada city, and Rodriguez was reportedly on the set for a cameo appearance.

"Lupe was there to film a fun cameo," an unnamed source previously told People.

Lopez's mom is rooting for Affleck and the singer-actress' relationship to work out this time around, according to the report. Lopez was also glad that her mom and Affleck had a blast together as it's reportedly important to her that the man she is dating gets along with Rodriguez.

"In the past, Jennifer's mom and Ben were very close. Guadalupe loved Ben. She was sad when they couldn't work things out years ago. She is thrilled that they are back together now," the insider told People.

"Jennifer is very close with her mom," the source continued. "It's very important to her that the person she is with, gets along with her mom. Jennifer loves that Ben and Guadalupe hung out in Las Vegas. They both love gambling and had fun together at the Wynn hotel."

Affleck and Rodriguez were spotted at the Wynn resort and casino in Las Vegas Wednesday. They were surrounded by a camera crew and security guards. Rodriguez was seen enthusiastically chatting with the "Argo" director and the crew in between takes, Entertainment Tonight reported.

It was not the first time that Affleck and Lopez's mom had crossed paths since the singer and actor, who were previously engaged between 2002 and 2004, first reconnected in April. In May, the pair caught up with each other during the Vax Live Concert at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, where Lopez performed on stage with her mom and Affleck made an appearance.

Meanwhile, Lopez and Affleck are not showing signs of slowing down in their romance.

The "Maid in Manhattan" actress was recently photographed stepping off a plane wearing a red and gray oversized flannel shirt that appeared to belong to Affleck. The "Batman v Superman" star has been photographed wearing the same shirt multiple times, most recently in May.
