The romance between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez just couldn't survive the Bennifer media firestorm, and the pair called it quits on Jan. 22. "The relationship was a slow death," says a source close to them. Since the summer, there's been a new Jen in Ben's life: former Daredevil costar Jennifer Garner. Recently, she flew to Vancouver to visit him on the set of his upcoming comedy Man About Town.
