Jennifer Lopez has shed light on a fan theory.
The singer and actress spoke to People about a rumor that she and Ben Affleck were trying to recreate the iconic yacht scene from Lopez’s music video for Jenny From the Block.
In July 2021, the pair were snapped by paparazzi celebrating Lopez’s birthday on a yacht in St. Tropez.
The two were lying down and Affleck’s hand was placed on Lopez’s derriere over her bikini—just as it was in the music video.
However, Lopez dispelled that theory and said, “We were just on the boat! There was no recreation! I was lying down…It was a trip I like to take for my birthday, but no, we were not intentionally recreating it. I didn’t know there were paparazzi out in the middle of the ocean either!”
Lopez said she found the theory “funny.”

She said, “I feel so lucky and happy and proud to be with him. It’s a beautiful love story that we got a second chance. When you find somebody and you really, really love them and you get a second chance at that? That is a really rare, precious, beautiful thing, and we don’t take it for granted.”
