On Saturday July 24, Bennifer made their official Instagram debut as a couple, sending fans into a frenzy with a shot of the pair making out shared on Lopez's social media. The intimate moment was just a snapshot of the singer's lavish birthday celebrations in Saint Tropez; she brought in the new year of life with Affleck on a giant yacht before heading to a local nightclub to keep the energy going.
"52...what it do," she captioned the steamy photoshoot on Instagram.
Elsewhere in St. Tropez, someone from Lopez's not-so-distant past is reportedly turning up for his birthday as well. Her ex-fiancé Rodriguez, whose Leo birthday falls mere days after hers, is also partaking in some festivities in the area because they reportedly planned to take the trip together as a couple before they famously split in April 2021. The former baseball player has been spending several days in Europe to celebrate his own upcoming forty-sixth birthday as well as his recent purchase of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx with business partner Marc Lore.
The tiny coastal town is quite small, meaning that it's totally possible for Lopez, Affleck, and Rodriguez to run into each other while taking in the sights. Although we don't know if the relationship truly on good terms — their mutual breakup announcement intimated as much — Rodriguez could be in the right emotional space to see his ex and her new/old boyfriend. Sources close to the all-star athlete report that he's "doing great" right now. He's even been spotted with someone new, finding himself at the centre of (since-debunked) dating rumours connected to broadcaster Melanie Collins.
"[Alex] is with family and friends and people he works with," one insider told PEOPLE. "He's doing great and celebrating his birthday and Minnesota Timberwolves sale."
Hopefully, the exes can keep things copacetic should they run into each other on the French Riviera. But if the energy is off for some reason, then they have their respective super-yachts to retreat to.
