The 52-year-old singer performed at the Global Citizen Live on Saturday, September 25 in New York City — and was joined by her beau. According to People, a source said Affleck, 49, flew to NYC to meet up with her ahead of her set.
“Jennifer and Ben were apart for a few days earlier this week. They met up in N.Y.C. yesterday,” the insider said. “Ben wanted to be by her side and attended the event. He watched her perform.”
“They are always supportive of each other’s careers,” the source added. “Ben has to be in Texas to film this coming week.”
On Saturday night, Lopez dazzled at the event, which took place across seven cities and six continents as a fundraising event for Global Citizen, a campaign to end COVID-19. Her set included hits ‘If You Had My Love’ and ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing,’ before she was joined by LL Cool J and Ja Rule for ‘I’m Real’ and ‘Ain’t It Funny.’
Lopez was then pictured leaving the event hand-in-hand with Affleck.
Lopez’s set also included an unreleased song, ‘On My Way’, from her upcoming movie Marry Me.
“It’s always such an honour to be here with so many people, so many loving people, trying to do so many amazing things together,” she said as the crowd cheered and chanted her name.
“And because of that, tonight I want to do something special. Do you guys mind if I do a song that no one has heard? Because it’s a special occasion, and I thought, ‘What special thing can I do?’ This song is about pushing through old mistakes and finding your destiny.
“But this is just for you guys here tonight. I want to share this with you because I feel, I feel, what I know is that we are on our way.”
Affleck and Lopez’s recent appearance together comes shortly after the Gone Girl star gushed over their relationship for the first time since rekindling their romance after nearly 20 years.
“I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is,” he told AdWeek last week. “At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country.”
“That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect,” he added.
