While it's unclear when this video was sent, it likely wasn't in the last week as Affleck's been spending plenty of time with his ex-fiancée, Jennifer Lopez

As Radar exclusively reported, the former flames are "casually" back together and reunited for the sake of charity over the weekend. 

Ahead of the weekend, the Let's Get Loud singer and her ex-boyfriend made headlines after Affleck was caught by photographers leaving her home after she returned from the Dominican Republic where she had been filming her new movie, Shotgun Wedding.
