Ben Affleck’s Brother Casey Sent J-Lo a Warning Before She Married Ben

And it’s turning heads…

There’s no denying, that the Bennifer engagement is the biggest celebrity relationship news in months — if not years.

  via Getty Images  

It seems we’ve come full circle — and we’ve never seen J-Lo this happy…

And now, it’s been announced that they have finally got married.

  via Getty Images  

But fans aren’t too impressed with their big day.

Now, alongside her singing, acting, dancing, and modeling, there’s another reason that J-Lo is a household name…

  via Getty Images  

Alongside her impressive career, J-Lo is also famed for a string of high-profile relationships. Her first was Cuban waiter, Ojani Noa, to whom she was married between 1997 and 1998. The pair had one of the very first messy celebrity divorces that have now become a staple of celebrity culture – so we have a lot to thank them for!

Then J-Lo began dating Sean Combs (better known as P-Diddy) in 1999 and gave us this incredible Grammys look that same year.

Internet urban legend claims that this dress was the reason for the invention of Google Images.

After all that drama, she enjoyed a brief dalliance with former backup dancer, Chris Judd.

  via Getty Images  

In fact, the pair enjoyed another whirlwind marriage between 2001 and 2002.

A year later, Ben Affleck came into the picture…

  via Getty Images  

The pair shared one of the very first celebrity couple names — Bennifer. Although the pair were set to marry in 2003, they ended up postponing their wedding just a day before, eventually splitting in January 2004.

​However, they’re now rekindling their old flame…

  via Getty Images  

But more on that after we get up to speed with J-Lo’s relationship timeline…

Very quickly after breaking up with Affleck, J-Lo began dating her childhood friend, Marc Anthony.

  via Getty Images  

So quickly, in fact, that the two (yet again) married in June of the very same year.

J-Lo then became a mom!

  via Getty Images  

J-Lo and Anthony’s twins were born in Long Island on February 22nd, 2008. The kids are called Emme Maribel and Maximilian David.

3 years later, though, Anthony filed for divorce.

  via Getty Images  

Between 2011 and 2016, J-Lo had an on-again-off-again relationship with another former backup dancer, Casper Smart.

But that casual fling was quickly put to an end in 2017 when New York Yankees baseball player, Alex Rodriguez came into the picture.

From the get-go, it seemed like things were going very well between the loved-up pair.

  via Getty Images  

They were even engaged to be married!

The pair appeared to be happier than ever…

  via Getty Images  

But then news emerged that they had sadly “broken up.”

Headlines across the globe claimed the pair had gone their separate ways.

  via getty  

Calling off their 2-year engagement.

And, on April 15th 2021, the pair announced that they had, in fact, broken up.

  via Getty Images  

In a joint statement, the pair said: “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”

Of course, we were all heartbroken about the news.

  via Getty Images  

But not for very long, between then and now, J-Lo has rekindled with her previous ex… Ben Affleck!

They were spotted taking a week-long vacation together last year…

  via Getty Images  

And “Bennifer” fans have been ecstatic over the reunion.

A source close to them revealed that initially after the breakup, the pair were “just friends.”

  via Getty Images  

But E! News reported that the status had been updated.

A second source told the outlet:

  via getty  

“They have been in touch here and there throughout the years. Ben reached out to her to see how she was doing and they had dinner together a few times within this last month. It’s natural between them and the chemistry is unreal. They picked up where they last left off and are enjoying each other’s company right now.”

And just a year after they were first spotted together, the pair were officially engaged…

  via getty  

It came eighteen years after the pair were originally planning on getting hitched.

Back in February, J-Lo opened up about her relationship with Affleck this time around to People, she said: “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.”

  via Getty Images  

“It’s a beautiful outcome that this has happened in this way at this time in our lives where we can really appreciate and celebrate each other and respect each other,” J-Lo continued. “We always did, but we have even more of an appreciation because we know that life can take you in different directions.”

J-Lo and Affleck were also spotted house hunting recently before settling on a  $55 million Bel-Air home…

  via Getty Images  

It’s a whopping 20,000 sq ft. featuring 10 bedrooms and seventeen bathrooms, and of course, a pool.

J-Lo shared the incredible news of her engagement in her newsletter on Friday, revealing her ring in the video, with the voiceover: “You’re perfect.”

  via Getty Images  

Just days earlier, her sister Lynda took to Instagram to share a photo of her ring on her Story, congratulating the pair.

She later shared that the proposal was the most “romantic thing” ever.

  via Getty Images  

And she did so by writing in the JLO Newsletter.

“Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?” Lopez began in the newsletter, as per PEOPLE.

  via Getty Images  

“Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed,” she continued writing.

“I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES.

“I was smiling so big and tears were coming down my face, feeling so incredibly happy and whole.

  via Getty Images  

“It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined… just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other,” she wrote.

And then she finished by saying that they are: “Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love.”

And now, the loved-up pair have finally tied the knot…

  via Getty Images  

According to TMZ, who obtained a marriage license with their names on it, the couple tied the knot on Sunday, July 17.

A source close to the pair added: ‘They did, indeed, get hitched and the license is a signal they are now man and wife.”

  via Getty Images  

However, since fans have got a glimpse of her dress, many are saying it’s the “ugliest” dress they’ve ever seen.

Fans have taken to Instagram, where a video of J-Lo in her wedding dress was shared by chrisappleton1, her hairstylist.

  via Getty Images  

He captioned the post: “Last minute feelings before the wedding.”

People were quick to share their thoughts on her dress.

  via Getty Images  

Sadly, it wasn’t a positive reaction.

One Instagram user wrote: “I did not think her dress would be so simple!!!”

  via Getty Images  

While another wrote: “That dress is so underwhelming.”

“UGLIEST DRESS EVER !!” a third wrote.

  via Getty Images  

Another echoed: “Hope that’s not the dress.” A fifth said: “She looks like she’s ready for her first communion.”

And it seems her dress wasn’t the only thing that got people talking.

  via Getty Images  

J-Lo recently announced that she has legally changed her name following the union.

Responding to the news, one fan wrote on Twitter: “Why would she change her name? Why would they get married if they don’t have kids together? What’s the point other than attention?”

  via Getty Images  

“Do we call her ‘JAff’ now?” another questioned.

In an email to her followers, J-Lo wrote: “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”

  via Getty Images  

She added: “Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive-through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive-through with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with.”

  via Getty Images  

And as per J-Lo’s newsletter, it seems the star has in fact changed her name to: Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

And that’s not sitting well with some people…

  via Getty Images  

Who have dished out their opinions.

The hosts of Australian breakfast program Today Extra were surprised when they learnt that J-Lo had changed her famous surname…

  via Getty Images  

They didn’t stop at just the name change, they went on to comment that it was her “fourth marriage.”

“This is her fourth marriage,” said television star Shelly Horton, who was a guest on the show.

  via Getty Images  

Shell-shocked at J-Lo’s swift move to change her famous surname, Horton didn’t hold back from confessing her opinion further.

“She should learn not to change her name,’ she said.

  via Getty Images  

Ouch!

But it didn’t stop just there, as Horton continued to express that it’s shocking to see women change their name after marriage…

  via Getty Images  

Especially when “sometimes it doesn’t work out.”

Was that an indirect jibe?

“You know sometimes it doesn’t work out. I think it’s crazy that people change their name,” Horton said.

  via Getty Images  

And things certainly took a turn when sports reporter Ben Fordham agreed with her.

“Women don’t need to give up their identity just because they get married,” he said.

  via Getty Images  

But what caught our attention was the fact he labeled the ‘Jenny From the Block’ singer “a brand.”

And if you thought that was candid…

  via Getty Images  

Fordham also said that “it was J-Lo’s choice” at the end of the day and so people should accept that.

“What about respecting women and their own choices,” he added.

  via Getty Images  

But what was surprising was that host David Campbell was also in favor of the star changing her name and slammed his guest.

“I was happy for her, why can’t you be happy for her? She’s a woman making her own choices. Shelly, because you are wearing glasses, it doesn’t make you smart,” he said.

  via Getty Images  

And they were equally surprised at J-Lo’s middle name too.

“She is Jennifer Lynn Affleck, Lynn is not what I expected in the middle name!” Campbell said. 

  via Getty Images  

Host Sylvia Jeffries could also not believe it as well.

“No, no!” said the co-host quite shocked…

A short time after their marriage, J-Lo’s first husband shared his prediction for their union.

Forty-eight-year-old, Ojani Noa, claims Lopez “loves being in love,” but quickly loses interest when the initial spark dies.

  via Getty Images  

According to The Daily Mail, Noa shared: “Ben is husband number four. I was husband number one and she told me I was the love of her life. When we lay in bed on our wedding night, she said we would be together forever.”

Talking about his first meeting with the star, he revealed he had met her while working at Gloria Estefan’s Ocean Drive restaurant Lario’s On The Beach when he was twenty-two.

  via Getty Images  

“Miami was buzzing. I did some modeling. I hustled. I wanted the American dream – and I found it when Jen walked into Lario’s,” he reportedly said. “I had no idea who she was. Our eyes glanced at each other and I thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”

Lopez allegedly came into the restaurant the day after and “I was smitten,” Noa said.

  via Getty Images  

“She was wearing a white top and trousers, and I remember thinking she had the best body I’d ever seen. She later told me she knew that first night she was going to marry me,” Noa reportedly recalled.

After their second meeting, the pair decided to hit the clubs together with some friends.

  via Getty Images  

“When we got to the club my friend Leo took Jen to the dance floor, and I thought, ‘Oh man, you’re a lucky guy.’ Then [her friend] said, ‘When they get back, take Jen out there. It’s you she’s interested in.’

“They get back and I take her hand and lead her onto the floor, and a slow song comes on. It was electric. She was shaking and said, ‘You make me nervous.’

  via Getty Images  

“We could both feel the romantic energy. It was instant and intense. Like it was surging through our bodies. I said, ‘I feel the same way you’re feeling.’ I lifted her chin and gave her a kiss – it was a kiss like we’d known each other forever.”

After dating for some time, and J-Lo introducing Noa to her life as a celebrity, they later married, but things quickly went downhill…

  via Getty Images  

Despite their divorce, Noa said he feels that things could have worked out for him and “Jenny From The Block” if not for the “parasites who feed off celebrities” and the media branding him a “penniless waiter.”

Speaking about the recent Bennifer wedding, Noa said: “I wish her and Ben the best, but I’m not convinced it will last.”

  via Getty Images  

“I think she’s someone who will be married seven or eight times. I can’t see her ever settling down with one person. She pushes herself to constantly go forward in her professional life, which is why she’s had a three-decade career, but she also moves on in her private life.”

He added: “If Ben has Lupe on his side then maybe he’s got a chance.”

  via Getty Images  

But Noa isn’t the only one of J-Lo’s exes to speak out.

It seems all of her past boyfriends have positive comments about the star.

  via Getty Images  

Sean “Diddy” Combs told PEOPLE in 2006 about their relationship: “She was one of my girlfriends, and the most highly publicized one. But I’ve been blessed to go out with a couple of great women, and she was one of the great ones.” Despite things turning sour between the 2, it looks like there are no hard feelings.

Ex Cris Judd also opened up about his time with Lopez, admitting to Us Weekly in 2014: “I can’t give you the answer as to why her relationships don’t work. I think that it’s that it is work. It’s whether you want to work on it or not. … When you sign up to get married, you can’t just walk away.”

  via Getty Images  

Marc Anthony also holds no ill will towards his ex, revealing in an InStyle interview last year: “She’s the first one in the room and the last one to leave. The hardest worker I’ve ever met. When we were together, it was quite the opposite for me. That has changed since. I learned so much from her.”

Casper Smart shared to Hola! that at the time of their relationship “I was very young and selfish. I thought I was ready for a relationship with a woman with kids and everything,” later telling Us Weekly in 2017, “Jennifer is, like, phenomenal, phenomenal, phenomenal.”

  via Getty Images  

Even Alex Rodriguez told ET: “I had five years of an incredible life and partnership and also with my daughters, we learned so much. And now we have the opportunity to take that and move forward and say, ‘You know what? We’re so grateful for the last five years, how do we make the next five years better because of lessons learned?’”

So it looks like none of them regret their time with J-Lo.

Aside from that, everyone wants to know what the newlyweds are up to now…

  via Getty Images  

The couple recently decided to grab lunch with their kids at Huckleberry Café.

But what caught our attention was the extreme PDA!

  via Getty Images  

During that particular outing, Lopez was spotted lovingly scratching Affleck’s head, Page Six reports.

While the actor’s daughter, Violet, tried to get her dad’s full fledge attention.

  via Getty Images  

They were also accompanied by the Lopez’s twins, Emme Maribel and Maximilian David, as well as Affleck’s youngest son Samuel.

Following their quick lunch, the family stopped to grab a few treats from Dunkin’…

  via Getty Images  

Because who wouldn’t?

And the couple shared a sweet kiss as they came out of the store with their goodies…

  via Getty Images  

So it seems the couple is doing well, despite Affleck leaving their honeymoon early.

The heartbreaking reason that he left was later revealed.

  via Getty Images  

It’s no secret the pair have been followed relentlessly by paparazzi on their honeymoon in Paris.

And it seems that Affleck was understandably “freaked out” by the media swarm.

  via Getty  

A source went as far as to tell Page Six it was “almost Princess Diana-level.”

“Ben was a little freaked out in Paris,” the source claimed.

  via getty  

“This was a whole new level.”

Affleck’s outburst might have had something to do with the fact they split in 2004 due, partly, to overbearing paparazzi.

  via getty  

“Ben is used to the flashing lights,” the Page Six source said. “But he felt that the honeymoon was a tsunami. Jen’s made out of steel and knows it comes with the territory [but] he still gets p*ssed off.”

They added that the honeymoon “reminded him too much of the first time he and the singer tried to get married.”

  via Getty  

And, now, just weeks after that whole ordeal, the couple has had more stress to deal with.

The pair had their second wedding ceremony this weekend…

  via Getty Images  

At Affleck’s estate in Riceboro, Georgia.

But, just as guests began to arrive at the property, disaster struck.

  via Getty Images  

The Daily Mail reported that an ambulance, sometimes reaching over 120 mph, sped to the Riceboro property at around noon yesterday.

It headed to the Liberty County Medical Center.

  via Getty Images  

A source reportedly told the news outlet that Affleck’s mom fell off a dock and cut her leg at the property.

Affleck reportedly found her and called the ambulance.

  via Getty Images  

A source told the media outlet that the incident was “not serious.” Phew!

Since the lavish second wedding ceremony, photos of the event have leaked.

  via Getty Images  

And some people have been shocked by J-Lo’s choice of dress.

“How could she possibly have thought that that was appropriate?” one person asked.

  via Getty Images  

“Kinda tacky lol,” wrote another.

So, why are people calling the dress “distasteful”?

  via Getty Images  

Well, it’s because they think it’s a bit much for a second wedding dress.

One person pointed out that people tend to go for something a little more understated if they’re having a home wedding as well as one abroad.

“It’s a little silly,” one social media user said.

  via Getty Images  

“With her wealth, she has so many options for a beautiful, sophisticated dress appropriate for a fourth wedding,” they continued, making reference to the fact that J-Lo has been married before.

Well, we think J-Lo looked as stunning as always.

  via Getty Images  

But J-Lo’s dress isn’t the only thing people are talking about…

Just hours before the nuptials took place, Affleck’s brother, Casey Affleck, was photographed in a Starbucks in Los Angeles. 

  via Getty Images  

It left the paparazzi shell-shocked as to why he wasn’t attending the ceremony.

One paparazzi even questioned Casey, and asked: “Why aren’t you in Georgia right now, man?”

The forty-seven-year-old, who was clearly uncomfortable, mumbled a response.

“I have other things,” he said.

  via Getty Images  

However, a source told PEOPLE that Casey wasn’t in attendance because of family matters, preventing him from attending his brother’s wedding.

“Unfortunately, it’s because of family, parental obligations at home,” the source said.

  via Getty Images  

Despite Casey not being there for the celebrations, Saturday night was still full of love and support for the couple, with huge attendance including some famous faces.

But Casey didn’t miss the opportunity to welcome his new sister-in-law into the family with a sweet Instagram post.

  via Getty Images  

Where he gave her a warning…

Casey shared a paparazzi photo of himself, Affleck, and J-Lo that was taken back in 2002 and referenced the couple’s unusual relationship timeline…

  via Getty Images  

As he wrote: “Good things are worth waiting for.”

“[Here’s] to twists and turns, new beginnings, and finding new reservoirs of old love,” he said.

  via Getty Images  

“Welcome to the family. Get ready for some real dysfunction! Kidding. I am kidding,” he added.

But it’s the sweet ending to the note that has got everyone feeling a little teary…

“Jen, you are a gem. We love you so much!!!” he concluded the note.
