Jennifer Lopez discussed her relationship with Ben Affleck and her path from heartbreak to “true love.”
American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez described breaking off her engagement to Ben Affleck as the “worst heartbreak” of her life. The “Marry Me” singer reflected on her rekindled romance with the “Deep Water” actor and recalled her hurt after they broke off their first engagement in 2004 in a new interview with Apple Music 1.
The breakup was quite tricky, 53-year-old Lopez admitted to interviewer Zane Lowe. “That wedding cancellation 20 years ago caused the greatest sadness of my life. Sincerely, I thought I was going to pass away.”
“For the following 18 years, I went on a spiral where I couldn’t get it right. However, it does have a happy ending now, 20 years later. It has the most Hollywood-unimaginable finish, “According to a quote from the singer.
The co-stars of Gigi got married in 2002. But two years later, it ended in a divorce. In April 2021, Jennifer and Ben reconnected, started dating again, and got hitched in July of this year in Las Vegas.
The “Let’s Get Loud” singer said, “We captured me at this point when I was reunited with the love of my life and we decided we would be together forever. This love that exists is the album’s overarching message. This is love,”
Lopez told Lowe, “I believe the album’s message is: don’t give up if, like me at times, you have lost hope. “There is such a thing as true love, and certain things last forever. I want to spread that message, which requires much vulnerability.”
Following her split with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez felt she was “going to die.”
After more than 20 years, the story of Jennifer Lopez, 53, and Ben Affleck, 50, continues to surprise and delight. When it appeared that one of Hollywood’s most well-known couples had garnered enough attention with their reconciliation and subsequent marriage, the singer made headlines by revealing more information about how they met in 2002 and why they split up two years later.
Lopez said when she looked back on their relationship that it wasn’t a case of “love at first sight.” In an interview with Apple Music, she claimed, “I guess what happened is, as we worked together, we became such good friends.”
They first connected while making the movie Gigli (2002), but Lopez was already wed to Chris Judd, a choreographer. But there was no denying the two had chemistry. “We realized that we loved one other madly […] You seem to have just known it. “This is the person I want to be with,” is all that can be said. And it took place over several months.
Then it came to an end from one day to the next. “After we split up, it was pretty painful. That wedding cancellation 20 years ago caused the most incredible sadness of my life. She admitted, “I thought I was going to die. According to Lopez, playing songs influenced by their relationship was so traumatic that she quit. “I had to hide that aspect of myself to survive and move on. Undoubtedly, it was a strategy for survival.”
For the following 18 years, she continued, “I just couldn’t get it right because it sent me on a spiral.” Nevertheless, it does have a happy ending now, 20 years later.
Lopez found love with singer Marc Anthony, with whom she has two children, and former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, with whom she was briefly engaged, during their separation. She also performed at hundreds of concerts, including the Super Bowl halftime show, and starred in dozens of movies and television shows during this time.
After Lopez ended her engagement with actor Alex Rodriguez and Affleck ended his with actress Ana de Armas, the couple announced their reconciliation in April 2021. The two were married in Las Vegas a month after becoming engaged one year later. They had a three-day wedding with friends and family a month later.
Lopez revealed on Friday that This is Me, her upcoming album, would be released. Her 2002 album This is Me… Then is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. She claimed that the new album’s central theme is love. We caught me at this precise moment when I was reunited with the love of my life and we decided to spend the rest of our lives together.
The album’s overall message is that love does exist. This is true love, she declared. “Don’t give up if you have occasionally lost hope like me. Because it’s accurate that true love exists and that some things last forever.”
She said it does require a lot of vulnerability to spread that message, “but I want to do that.” “But I was powerless to stop, and some of it terrifies me. Ben may be scared by some of it, too, I believe. Oh, do you want to say all this stuff, he asks. “I don’t know how else to do it, baby,” I say.
After more than 20 years, Jennifer Lopez, who is 53, and Ben Affleck, who is 50, are still making the news.
