Looks like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez won’t be rescheduling their lavish wedding, canceled just four days before it was supposed to occur, anytime soon. Despite a public night out together at Hollywood’s Ivy restaurant shortly after they announced Wednesday that they were postponing their nuptials, People magazine reports that the two have split for good, citing a source who says Ben dumped Jen. A source close to Affleck told the New York Post: ”He called a lot of friends to say that he and Jennifer had broken up.”

A friend tells People that Lopez was ”devastated,” though she spent the weekend in Miami, where she was photographed frolicking on the beach with girlfriends. Some reports had Affleck spending the weekend poolside at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel, but pals told the New York Daily News he stayed in Los Angeles. ”People are reading too much into this,” an Affleck friend told the Daily News. One Lopez confidante said her Miami romp was more like a ”bachelorette party,” than a retreat, saying: ”I still think she’s getting married.” ”They’ll be back together this week,” a Lopez friend said. ”Whether they’ll be together in a month, I don’t know.”
