The pair have had fans in a frenzy since they reunited back in late April and their recent romantic display did little to quell the hysteria. Hands fixed firmly around each other, Lopez, 51, leaned into her actor beau, 48, in their first public display of affection since Affleck was caught visiting the singer at her Los Angeles home – just days after she confirmed her split with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
