Jennifer Lopez has returned to work following her Paris honeymoon with Ben Affleck. The “Let’s Get Loud” singer, 53, opened her act with “If You Had My Love” and “Waiting for Tonight” on Saturday at the LuisaViaRoma x Unicef charity event in Capri, Italy.
The celebrity, who legally wed Ben Affleck in Las Vegas on July 16, returned to the stage for the first time since the wedding.
Lopez dazzled at the Certosa San Giacomo, a 14th-century abbey, in a custom Roberto Cavalli by Fausto Puglisi feathered suit with tiger stripes.
“Tonight, we’re giving disco,” she told the crowd during the LuisaViaRoma-hosted event, which raised approximately eight million euros for Ukrainian and Syrian relief operations. “Do you know what this makes me think of? This brings back memories of my childhood in the Bronx.”
She continued, “My mother used to watch those award shows and big galas; this is similar to a big gala.”
Prior to Lopez’s headlining set, Diplo, Sofia Carson, and DJ Cruz performed, and the event attracted celebrities such as Jamie Foxx, Vanessa Hudgens, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, and Haim.
The show took place just a few weeks after Lopez wed Affleck, 49, over fourteen years after they called off their first engagement in 2004.
Earlier this month, the “Good Will Hunting” actor and “Selena” actress revealed their engagement in an issue of her “On The JLo” newsletter.
“We did it. Love is gorgeous. Love is nice. And indeed, love proves to be patient. Twenty years of patience,” the “Marry Me” actress said to her admirers in a message.
“We made it to the white wedding chapel just before midnight,” she added. “They gladly stayed open late for a few minutes and let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible that was reportedly previously owned by the monarch himself”
In April of 2022, the pair became engaged for a second time. After their small ceremony in Las Vegas, Affleck and Lopez traveled to Paris for a PDA-filled honeymoon.
Now, Page Six has learned from several sources that the newlyweds have recruited luxury event planner Colin Cowie to assist them in creating a more opulent wedding celebration at Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Georgia. According to reports, the event will likely occur within the next two weeks.
