J-LO pounds 7M DEAL FOR BEN SPLIT; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: FIONA CUMMINS, Ms Showbiz

JENNIFER Lopez's lawyers are drawing up an amazing set of demands in case she splits from movie star fiance Ben Affleck.

She wants to be entitled to his pounds 7million fee from their new movie Gigli if he calls the wedding off.

Legal eagles are also considering a clause which will see J-Lo pocket half his salary from any film roles he accepts while they're together.

Aides to J-Lo, 32, believe her global success has boosted Affleck's profile. Los Angeles law firm Trope and Trope is looking into the agreement.

But Affleck, 30, an A-list star in his own right, is unlikely to sign up to the demands, which will only apply if they break up before their wedding.

Lawyers were ordered to thoroughly research the ground-breaking agreement - dubbed a palimony pre-nup - as other celebrity couples may want one. J-Lo is due to wed Affleck in September. Her second marriage to dancer Cris Judd lasted just seven months and he received a pounds 9million divorce payout.

Lawyer Sorrell Trope did not return our calls and J-Lo's representatives did not comment. Ben Affleck's spokesman said: "I have no idea if this is true. We don't comment on his personal life."

This week, in their first joint interview, J-Lo revealed that her fiance was in charge of their relationship. She said: "Ben wears the pants."
