Bennifer 2.0 is the good news story we needed this year, but it’s easy to forget the relationships that were sacrificed to bring the iconic couple back together.

Just months before news of Jennifer Lopez’s reunion with Ben Affleck hit the gossip columns, the star was engaged to retired baseball legend Alex Rodriguez, only to call things off – twice – after deciding they were ‘better as friends’.

Sadly, but perhaps predictably, it seems that the former couple’s post-engagement friendship has been unable to survive the onslaught of Bennifer content that followed, with fans noting this weekend that J-Lo appears to have wiped all traces of her ex-fiancé from her Instagram account, just four months after they ended their engagement.

Some of the photos to have disappeared from J-Lo’s page include shots from President Biden’s inauguration in January, at which Lopez performed, as well as images of the couple attending 2019’s Met Gala, although the solo pics of herself at the events are still public on her account.

And if that wasn’t enough of a sign that things between the pair are less amicable than they’d like to admit, according to Page Six J-Lo has also taken the nuclear step of unfollowing A-Rod altogether.

News of the social media purge came just a day before Ben Affleck’s 49th birthday, and only a few weeks after J-Lo made Bennifer 2.0 Instagram official on her own 52nd birthday, posting a series of photos of the couple celebrating the occasion on a yacht.
