Jennifer Lopez has spoken out for the first time since she was spotted bickering with husband Ben Affleck live at the Grammys.
The moment quickly went viral, but it doesn’t seem to be bothering the singer, who took to social media shortly after the event.
Affleck and Lopez wed last year, over twenty years after they split up, and it appeared that they had finally achieved their fairytale romance.
In a recent interview with Today, Jennifer expressed nothing but joy for her new spouse and life, calling 2022 her “best year” since the birth of her children. She added: “It’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition, but at the same time all your dreams coming true.”
However, things haven’t been going as smoothly for the pair as she’s letting on. They have been spotted numerous times squabbling about one thing or another. But their most recent spat, which has since gone viral, has led people to believe their relationship isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
In the clip, Jennifer turns her head and sharply addresses Ben after the actor can be seen bending down to whisper something in her ear.
While we can’t make out what the pair are talking about, a lip reader for the Daily Mail claims J Lo said: “Stop. Look more friendly. Look motivated.”
They went on to say that Affleck replied with: “I might.”
Their awkward interaction quickly became a meme, with Twitter users jumping on the drama online.
Many were trying to figure out what the singer was saying to Affleck.
One person wrote: “I’d pay for an alternate Grammy broadcast that’s just a livestream of Ben Affleck and J. Lo’s table.”
While a second said: “Cracking UP that this was Ben Affleck’s reaction to being at Jennifer Lopez’s side at the #Grammys watching Stevie Wonder and Chris Stapleton tear the roof off the place with their rendition of Higher Ground. He looks like someone just told him his dog died, come on man.”
“Ben Affleck at the Grammys is me any time I have to be on a Zoom call,” a third commented.
Another said: “Someone get Ben Affleck a cigarette and a Dunkin’ coffee stat.”
The comments are a total contrast to what J Lo commented on Instagram shortly after the event.
The singer took to social media to share a sweet video of her and Affleck, along with the caption: “Always the best time with my love, my husband.”
The evening as a whole was one full of shocks and surprises, with Twitter, as always, providing commentary along the way.
The biggest prize of the night, Album of the Year, was widely predicted to finally be awarded to Beyonce. The legendary ‘Break My Soul’ singer has been nominated for this award multiple times yet never managed to take it home, and once again the Academy failed to award it to her.
Instead, it went home with Harry Styles for his third album, Harry’s House.
Record of the Year, where Styles’ anthem ‘As It Was’ was widely thought of as a shoo in, went home with Lizzo for her track ‘About Damn Time’.
In another big shock, Taylor Swift lost out on Song of the Year for her iconic ten-minute long re-recording of the fan favourite track ‘All Too Well’ from Red (Taylor’s Version).
Instead, country blues singer Bonnie Raitt beat Swift to it, with her song titled ‘Just Like That’.
