    If you need a quick refresher, "Bennifer" were together back in 2002 until 2004. They even got engaged! What a time.

    Of course, it is very possible that they are hanging out just as friends! But because we are sad, bored, and alone,* that didn't stop the ol' imagination wheels from turning.
