Jennifer Lopez's City of Lights Family Shopping Spree

Posted Monday October 15, 2012 7:43 PM GMT

Making their way through a sea of paparazzi, Jennifer Lopez arrived at the Hotel Le Meurice in Paris with Casper Smart and her daughter on Monday (October 15).

The former "American Idol" judge wore a black top and black pants, while little Emme wore a pink outfit and held onto Casper's hand. Early, the happy trio had spent the day shopping in the City of Lights.

Though J-Lo has had her share of high-profile romances, at least one of her former beaus admits to a continuing friendship with the singer/actress.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck revealed, "We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great.'"

The friendliness goes both ways, too. The "Argo" director/actor notes, "I remember when she got ‘American Idol.’ I said: 'This was really smart. Good luck.' I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."
