NEW YORK (AP) – Jenny’s engagement ring is back on the block.

A year after Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck called off their wedding, her engagement ring has been “reacquired” by New York jeweler Harry Winston, said Carol Brodie, a spokeswoman for the jeweler, on Friday.

Brodie confirmed the ring is for sale, but the price is available only to “serious buyers.” The transaction was first reported by People magazine.

Affleck, 32, purchased the 6-carat pink diamond ring in 2002. He and Lopez split in January 2004 after calling off their wedding because of intense media attention.

His publicist, Ken Sunshine, wouldn’t comment on the report. Lopez’s publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment Friday.

In June, Lopez reportedly married salsa singer Marc Anthony at her Beverly Hills, Calif., home, and Affleck has been linked to “Alias” actress Jennifer Garner.

Lopez and Anthony will sing a duet at the Feb. 13 Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles.

HONG KONG (AP) – Hollywood star Keanu Reeves said he trained with an exorcist for his latest film, “Constantine,” and he was relieved that no supernatural forces plagued the movie set.

“There were no paranormal events that took place on the film that I know of. Thank God!” said Reeves, 40, who plays the title character in “Constantine” a man who battles to send demons back to hell.

He described his character as a “world-weary” and “nihilistic guy with a heart of gold.”

Adapted from a DC Comics series, the film will have its world premiere in Hong Kong Tuesday 10 days before its opening in the United States.

“I went with an exorcist for a bit. I just want to know really practical things, like how do you hold someone possessed by the devil,” Reeves said.

The star of the “Matrix” and “Speed” action thrillers said his latest role also makes him less skeptical about the existence of hell.

“Constantine kind of knows it’s fact. So I guess if I had any doubts before, I probably have a little few less doubts now,” he said.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, who have been mum on their reported marriage, will perform together for the first time at the Grammy Awards later this month, reports The Associated Press.

The Recording Academy didn’t announce the song the couple would perform, but there was speculation that it might be from Lopez’s new album, “Rebirth,” which is due out March 1.

Lopez and Anthony have sung together before on “No me amas” from her 1999 album, On the 6, and on “Escapemonos” from Anthony’s “Amar sin mentiras.” The couple were married in Beverly Hills, Calif., last June.

Anthony is nominated for best Latin pop album for “Amar sin mentiras” and best salsa/merengue album for “Valio la pena.”

The Feb. 13 Grammy Awards show will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS.
