Her Ex-Husbands & Relationships

Throughout her career, Jennifer Lopez has had a colorful dating history, including some of the most famous men in the industry. Some of her relationships have led to marriage, while others have not been as successful. Here is a complete list of her past relationships. Read on to find out who she is with now.

As a result, a confidentiality agreement was drawn up, but he broke the contract and was sued for invasion of privacy in addition to breaking the contract.

The Latin pop star and Ben Affleck met on the set of the 2002 movie Gigli. At that time Lopez was still married to Cris Judd. When Jennifer was about to divorce Cris Judd, Affleck began to make his intentions known. Both were later seen in a strip club in Vancouver. In 2003 their relationship flourished with engagement and even wedding plans.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as planned and in 2004 they called off the wedding and ended their relationship.

The couple worked together frequently. They appeared together on the set of the film El Cantante (2006), and they also worked on songs for each other’s albums. After four years of marriage, Jennifer gave birth to twins on February 22, 2008 – a boy, Maximilian David, and a girl, Emme Marie.

Sadly, MarcAnthonyy and Jennifer Lopez publicly announced in 2011 that they had mutually agreed to end their marriage. They finally divorced on June 16, 2014.
