The Las Vegas Review Journal reports Jennifer Lopez has had enough of fiance Ben Affleck’s legendary tipping habits. A spy says J.Lo and Ben were at a baccarat table at The Mirage where Affleck was on a roll. When he tossed a $5,000 white chip to the dealers, J.Lo told him “no,” retrieved the chip, and put it in her pocket book. Then she reached over and took three of Affleck’s $100 black chips and pushed them across the table. The story at reviewjournal.com has since been removed.
Animal Lover Ben Being Corrupted By Jennifer Lopez?
December 5, 2002 – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal are worried that Jennifer is corrupting Ben Affleck, known for being a hero to animal lovers for acts of kindness after reports he recently bought a chinchilla coat for J.Lo. “We love Ben Affleck,” a PETA insider said. “Here is a man who once stopped to help an animal that was hit by a car and paid the vet’s bill. His brother, Casey, is a vegan. But then he hooks up with this diva who wears mink eyelashes! Next thing you know, we’re hearing that he’s buying fur coats! We’re praying that we haven’t lost one to the dark side.”
Jennifer Lopez Album Is Her Best Opening Ever
December 5, 2002 – The New York Daily News reports Jennifer’s latest album “This Is Me… Then’ sold more copies in it’s opening week, 314,132 copies, than any of her previous efforts, beating out ‘J.Lo’ which sold 272,252 units two years ago. No doubt the singer was boosted by debuting during the busiest shopping days of the year. Still, the figure was only good enough to land at #6. Jim Farber says, “Lopez’s new numbers fall within the traditional range racked up by top pop divas like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion. All tend to open in the 200,000 to 300,000 range, rather than hitting the high six-figure numbers enjoyed by some top male stars. The women typically make up for the lack of a huge opening by selling steadily in large numbers over a long period.”
