While the emails remain private, sources tell TMZ that Ben would rave about Jen’s beauty and express how much he wished he could be in the Dominican Republic with her!

During this time, Ben was also working and shooting The Tender Bar in Boston. The insider emphasized that the celebs didn’t even meet, but simply chatted online and reconnected.
At one point, Alex Rodriguez actually traveled to the Dominican Republic to try to save her.
In the end, it was unsuccessful, and their engagement was officially called off not long afterwards.
Two weeks later, Jennifer was seen hanging out with Ben in Los Angeles and they would continue to hang out.
They even went on vacation on Mother’s Day weekend, just the two of them!
Another source previously told HollywoodLife, “Things are casual between Ben and Jennifer right now, but it happens. She always said in interviews that he is the one who escaped, and she really means it … Everyone thought this was just for the press, but it’s not. ‘
