Remember, they were together in L.A. — very publicly — on the first weekend in May … just 2 weeks after Jen and A-Rod called off their engagement.
Folks in Ben and Jennifer’s world said they had always maintained a friendship since splitting up in 2004. However, as we first told you, they were together again in Montana this past weekend.
One more clue the exes have been in close contact for some time came with InStyle Magazine’s recent J Lo cover story. It included a quote from Ben gushing about his ex-fiancee, saying in part … “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”
That story did not include a quote from Jen’s then-fiance, A-Rod.
While it looked like Bennifer II went from 0 to 100 in record time, the emails show they were doing at least 55 by the time they started hanging out again.
