Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Purchase $50 Million Estate in Los Angeles’ Bel-air
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are planning their future together.
According to TMZ, the couple has spent at least $50 million on an estate in Los Angeles' Bel-Air and the property is in escrow.
In addition to 10 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms on the 20,000 square feet estate, there are multiple kitchens, a theater, a gym, a pool, and more. Apparently, both J Lo and Affleck's children will reside in the extremely private house, which is surrounded by trees and offers an excellent view of the city. Todd Lemkin, a Texas billionaire, initially listed the home for $65 million.
Lopez and Affleck's second attempt seems to be working out. This past month, the singer discussed the reasons for their breakup in the early 2000s. “It was brutal. It was brutal,” she told Rolling Stone. “It’s one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business. It’s funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love. It was one of the happiest times of my life.”
Additionally, they “were being criticized” which “really destroyed our relationship from the inside out.”
“I won’t talk about it a lot,” she continued. “We’ve both grown. We’re the same, and we’re different. And that’s what’s nice,” she said. “Having a second chance at real love…yeah. Like I said, we learned a lot. We know what’s real, what’s not real. So it’s just—the game has changed. Again, I’m trying not to say too much.”
