The couple is often spotted together by the paparazzi members. While sometimes they look happy, on other occasions they appear distant in public spotting. About Jennifer, the insider told the publication, “She lives in a world of make-believe and people aren’t buying the act anymore. They’re labelling her a phoney and narcissist and someone who’s tone-deaf to the real world around her.” Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance in 2021. Their whirlwind courtship period saw the duo tie the knot in July 2022. In a previous interview, Jennifer shared that the couple is happy in their life and that has only come after forgiving and finding themselves.
