Vancouver is familiar ground to the 52-year-old superstar. In early 2003, she and then-fiancé Ben Affleck went back and forth between Vancouver (where he was making Paycheck) and Winnipeg (where she was making Shall We Dance?).

In July 2003, Affleck went to Brandi’s Exotic Nightclub in Vancouver, sparking tabloid reports that he cheated on Lopez. Their September wedding was called off and the couple went on to split up.
