Jennifer Lopez found love in Casper Smart and both have been like a house on fire since late 2011. Having the handsome young man in her life is a consolation for the love lost in the past years.
Recently, the singer had a flashback on her failed marriages with Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony.
“I think different time, different thing. Who knows what could’ve happened? But there was a genuine love there.”
J-lo said that she felt something very different when she met Ben the first time – maybe love at first sight – but it was real. The American Idol judge attributes the breakup due to constant scrutiny from the media. There are also insinuations that the couple had some individual differences as famous stars which was compounded by the media.
“I felt like … ‘Okay, this is it.’ [But] sometimes I feel like what you think people are and how you see them when you love them is different than when they reveal later.”
The relationship with Ben Affleck lasted about 2 years before they called it quits in 2004.
Turning over to her divorce with Marc Anthony, Lopez agreed that her marriage to Marc which ended in 2012 “was devastating and awful.”
“It was devastating and awful. I think both Marc and I thought at the time we would be together for the next 40 years until we die. It was the biggest disappointment of my life so far. [But] I felt like at that time I had lost my way a little bit, of who I was in trying to make the marriage work,”
Their twins from the marriage – Max and Emme – are 8 years old.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, she would say. Lopez still share her time between the twins, Marc Anthony and Casper. The two men, according to her, are a big part in making her kids and her family happy.
