Meanwhile, Ben has admitted to being in ‘awe’ of the Jenny from the Block hitmaker.  

The Hollywood star explained that, at times, he ‘can only stand by and admire’ Jennifer.

He said: ‘All I can tell you is that I have seen first hand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them.’

Ben – who previously dated Jennifer between 2002 and 2004 – thinks the chart-topping star has inspired a huge number of Americans.

He said: ‘Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country.

‘That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.’

This comes after fans were made aware that for some reason Jennifer and Ben are not following each other on Instagram, even though she has shared loved up photos of the two on the social media app.
