But now, one source tells HollywoodLife that their romance started as an attempt to get a ‘reaction’ out of Jen’s ex fiance, Alex Rodriguez!
‘This started with her trying to get a reaction from A-Rod, but then she realized that it could turn into something and she would be lying if she said that does not make her feel good. Her feelings on having something with Ben are real and Jen wants to explore that. Things with Alex are over forever in her eyes and she’s working on moving on. Jennifer’s still taking things slow with Ben. It sort of happened. She is just seeing where things go and just trying not to overthink or to put pressure on it and Ben seems to give her all the time that she needs. She is calling the pace right now,’ they dished.
The same unnamed source went on to tell the same outlet that ‘Jen’s kids were also very, very close to A-Rod and she is still helping them process this new life after their split. They were so close to his kids as well and they really were a blended family which is another reason she is not rushing [into something serious with Ben Affleck].’
