Does Jennifer Lopez Have A Higher Net Worth Than Ben Affleck?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were such a hot item that we had to give them the nickname "Bennifer." The pair began dating in 2002, according to Vogue, got engaged, and then they split up in January 2004.

Since they were such a tabloid sensation, news of the split was momentous and the entire situation took its toll on Lopez in a major way. "I was eviscerated," Lopez told Vogue. "I lost my sense of self, questioned if I belonged in this business, thought maybe I did suck at everything. And my relationship [with Affleck] self-destructed in front of the entire world," she said. "It was a two-year thing for me until I picked myself up again."

Affleck also reflected on the difficulty of their split, especially how the media reacted to Lopez. "People were so f**king mean about her — sexist, racist, ugly, vicious s**t was written about her in ways that if you wrote it now you would literally be fired for saying those things you said," Affleck said while on The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast.

It's totally unacceptable that Lopez had to go through that and good that Affleck is recognizing how cruel fans and media were. But Affleck also mentioned in the podcast how Lopez has risen above the negativity to thrive in a major way. Yes, she has! Speaking of thriving, who has the higher net worth between the exes? Take a guess — then scroll down because we've got the answer!
