Jennifer Lopez’s mom seems to be all about Bennifer 2.0.
Guadalupe Rodriguez has reportedly given J.Lo’s on-again beau, Ben Affleck, the seal of approval after spending quality time with him in Las Vegas this week.
“In the past, Jennifer’s mom and Ben were very close,” a source close to Lopez told People. “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 source added that it’s “very important” for any partner of Lopez’s to get along well with her mother because the two ladies are “very close.”
“Jennifer loves that Ben and Guadalupe hung out in Las Vegas,” the source continued, adding: “They both love gambling and had fun together at the Wynn hotel.”
Rodriguez — who once won $2.4 million at an Atlantic City casino — was pictured with gambling enthusiast Affleck at the Sin City resort, where he was reportedly working on a new project. The Daily Mail also published photos of him gambling at around 3 a.m., sans J.Lo’s mom.
Rumors that Affleck and Lopez were back together started after the Oscar winner was photographed visiting J.Lo’s Los Angeles mansion several times in April — just a couple of weeks after the pop star and Alex Rodriguez publicly confirmed the end of their engagement.
Lopez, 51, and Affleck, 48, were engaged back in 2002 but called things off before they tied the knot.
