All eyes were on J. Lo at the highly anticipated Met Gala, but something was amiss: her beau, Ben Affleck, was nowhere to be seen! Instead, the stunning superstar strutted her stuff with a different companion, who was just as drop-dead gorgeous as she was. Needless to say, the unexpected pairing had everyone buzzing with intrigue and speculation.
Jennifer Lopez Attends Met Gala
During the recent Met Gala, Jennifer Lopez surprised everyone by attending without her partner, Ben Affleck. As it turned out, Ben couldn’t make it due to work commitments in Los Angeles.
Instead of going to the event alone, J. Lo brought her younger sister, Lynda, to accompany her at the Met After Party hosted by Stella McCartney and Baz Luhrmann. Lynda, a journalist, and author based in New York City, posted a sweet photo on Instagram of the two sisters at the event, with J. Lo gently resting her head on Lynda’s shoulder.
She’s very close to both of her sisters.
Jennifer is known to have a strong bond with both of her sisters. On International Women’s Day last year, she posted a throwback photo of herself with Lynda and Leslie-Ann, her other sister who is a teacher and keeps a lower profile.
Although Ben and Jennifer are known for being a glamorous Hollywood couple, with their appearances together often stealing the spotlight, Ben had to skip the Met Gala this time around. However, the couple has made memorable appearances together in the past, such as at the Grammys earlier this year, where Ben’s facial expressions went viral.
While Ben admitted that he doesn’t always feel comfortable on the red carpet, he expressed his love for his wife during a recent premiere.
