Does Ben Affleck have competition? Another challenger enters the ring in battle for J.Lo's heart

Los Angeles, California – After reading countless rumors about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez rekindling their ancient love over the last few weeks, Diddy has apparently had enough of sitting on the sidelines.

If anyone is having a moment right now, it's Jennifer Lopez. She recently gave signs that she's rekindling her romance with ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck (48), but it seems he's not the only former lover in line to win Jen back.

Diddy, also known as Sean Combs or Puff Daddy, posted a Throwback Thursday picture on his Instagram of himself and Lopez (51) out on a stroll while holding hands. He captioned the image "tbt."

The two dated from 1999-2001. Lopez and Affleck were linked together between 2001-2004 before calling it quits.

There were no other clues on his Instagram Story or feed that would lead one to believe that the 51-year-old music producer and rapper is vying for Lopez's heart.

The lack of context behind the post also begged the question as to whether he was being sentimental and nostalgic, or just playing the part of an internet troll.

Singer Tamar Braxton called a spade a spade and wrote, "It’s the petty for me and I’m here for it."

Despite the possibility of Diddy pranking everyone, many were thrilled about the pair's possible reunion.

One fan commented in support of the former lovebirds' reunion: "Tell her come on back home mane!!!" Another expressed their excitement saying, "Go get your girl Brother Love!!!!!! She yours."

Diddy has remained tight-lipped since uploading the photo, and it's clear that Lopez is gallivanting from coast-to-coast, locking lips, and living the good, mostly-single life.
