New photos were taken of the two stars, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, exchanging kisses, which sparked widespread controversy on social networking sites.
The photos confirmed weeks of speculation that they had gotten back together and renewed their love story, which has dominated celebrity media for nearly 20 years.
And the “New York Post” magazine published pictures from celebrity photographers that show the two actors exchanging kisses while having a meal with Lopez’s family in a luxury restaurant in Malibu, west of Los Angeles, on Sunday.
Representatives for Lopez, 51, declined to comment, while Affleck’s agents did not respond to a request for comment.
Lopez and “Argo” director Affleck, dubbed “Bennifer”, became celebrity talk 20 years ago in a romance that included their luxury cars and their 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring.
The two abruptly called off their upcoming marriage in 2003 and separated a few months later.
