Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck get marriage licence in Las Vegas: Official
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Singer Jennifer Lopez and actor Ben Affleck have obtained a licence to get married in Las Vegas, a local official said Sunday (July 17), after the celebrity couple rekindled a romance almost 20 years after they first got together.
The marriage licence was issued by Clark County in the state of Nevada dated Saturday, July 16, according to document details posted online by the county clerk’s office.
It was not immediately clear, however, whether the two had officially tied the knot. County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya said the license is valid up to one year.
“I can confirm that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez obtained a married licence last night, but their marriage certificate has not yet been filed,” she said in a statement to Reuters.
Celebrity website TMZ and People Magazine, among other outlets, reported the Affleck and Lopez had wed. People Magazine, citing a source, said the couple had married during a small, private ceremony.
Reuters has not independently verified that the couple wed.
A representative for Affleck could not immediately be reached for comment. Phones rang unanswered at Lopez’s talent agency Creative Artists Agency.
They became the most talked-about couple in the celebrity world in the early 2000s, with his-and-her luxury cars and a large 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring for Lopez.
But they abruptly called off their wedding in 2003 and split up a few months later.
