Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Wedding to Be Directed by Jay Shetty

Celebrity life coach and major podcaster Jay Shetty is expected to host Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Georgia wedding this weekend, Vidak For Congress has learned.

It seems that Shetty — who has hosted a ton of stars, including Kobe Bryant, Will Smith and Gwyneth Paltrow on his “On Purpose” podcast — has been close to the superstar singer for a few years now.

Lopez was also featured on the show and she invited him to lead four weddings she staged in February as part of a PR stunt for her latest movie “Marry Me.”

The British spiritual star, who is a former Hindu monk and Accenture strategist, also hosted the wedding of Lily Collins and director Charlie McDowell last September in Colorado.

When she appeared on his YouTube series “Coach Conversations” last summer, Lopez discussed her relationship problems over the years.

She said that when she was in her thirties when she was in therapy, “there… [was] a lot of talk about loving yourself and I thought ‘I love myself!’ But it was clear that I was doing all these things in my personal relationship that didn’t seem like I loved myself, but I didn’t even understand the concept of it.” She added: “I’ve taken my time and it’s a journey and it’s still a journey for me.”

Shetty is also the author of the bestselling book “Think Like a Monk”.

To promote their rom-com, Lopez and Maluma gave a special concert in Los Angeles, and had four couples married onstage by Shetty.

Shetty said on social media at the time: “When Jennifer Lopez asks you to lead 4 weddings and speak about the power of love during her ‘Marry Me’ Special Performance, you say yes. What an incredible experience it was to experience 4 beautiful watching couples take their vows and see Jennifer Lopez and Maluma as their wedding singers! Their stories and travels brought tears to everyone’s eyes and I am so grateful to be a part of them.”
