“When Ben reached out to JLO, he was really excited about the possibility of reviving their relationship,” the source continued. “JLO has always been in love with Ben. The day before, Ben had severed ties with JLO because he was overwhelmed by the regular media attention and reputation he brought to the relationship, but now they are in an amazing place and they really learned that for them as a couple.

They work together seamlessly and their relationship rarely takes much effort. ”
