Ben Affleck hits Vegas casino with Jennifer Lopez’s mom

Ben Affleck hits Vegas casino with Jennifer Lopez's mom

Ben Affleck was spotted spending some quality time with rekindled flame Jennifer Lopez‘s mom while filming at a Las Vegas casino on Wednesday.

The 48-year-old actor and Guadalupe Rodríguez were photographed together at the Wynn resort in Sin City, where Page Six is told Affleck is filming and directing a new project.

Camerapeople and security guards surrounded the pair as Rodríguez, 75, enthusiastically talked to them with her arms in the air between takes.

It is unclear whether Rodríguez — who once won $2.4 million at an Atlantic City casino and has been described as a “huge gambler” by none other than J.Lo herself — is involved in the project. Lopez, 51, was not spotted on set.

Affleck was also seen flying solo at the casino earlier on Wednesday. The Daily Mail obtained photos of him gambling at approximately 3 a.m. while trying to remain incognito in a black T-shirt and a baseball cap.

The “Argo” star’s return to the blackjack table came seven years after he was banned from gambling at the Hard Rock in Vegas ­because security officers had caught him counting cards.

He later admitted to cheating, saying in September 2014, “I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack.”

He added, “I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos.”

Affleck’s Vegas meetup with Rodríguez comes after several romantic getaways with her famous daughter, whom he first dated in the early 2000s before reuniting this year.

The on-again couple took trips to Montana and Lopez’s Miami rental in May. Later that month, they returned to California, where they were seen getting cozy on a date.

Their rekindled relationship comes after the “Let’s Get Loud” singer’s March breakup with fiancé Alex Rodriguez following rumors that the former Yankee had stepped out on her.

Affleck reportedly kept in touch with Lopez before they got back together, even sending her love letters.

The “Gigli” co-stars first started dating in 2002 and got engaged shortly after. They called off their wedding in 2003 and broke up early the next year.

Lopez was previously married to Marc Anthony, with whom she shares 13-year-old twins Max and Emme, from 2004 to 2014. She was also married to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998.

Affleck, for his part, shares three children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.
