Jennifer Lopez Admits: 'Ben Affleck Was My First Big Heartbreak'
Superstar Jennifer Lopez has opened up about her split from Argo star Ben Affleck, revealing their broken engagement was her "first big heartbreak". The On The Floor hitmaker separated from Ben in January, 2004, after which she married her good friend and fellow singer, Marc Anthony, after only six months of dating.
Lopez admits having the Latin music star by her side helped her to overcome the pain she felt after breaking up from her Hollywood beau ex, but it took her some time to truly heal. She tells U.S. breakfast show Today, "It was probably my first big heartbreak and to have one of my best friends who I had known for years, who I actually love and did have chemistry with, come into my life and say, 'I'm here...' What you need to know is nobody can save you or heal you, only you can do that for you."
Lopez split from Marc Anthony in 2011 and started dating dancer Casper Smart, but they ended their romance earlier this year and the 45 year old has recently announced she was not interested in dating at the moment and keen on staying single for a while. She continues, "I get scared... it's not normal for me (to be single), but I also know that I can't make decisions based on the fear so that when a person does show up I'm not like, 'Oh yeah, this is so nice, let's move in together.' Where I just go, 'You know what, let's get to know each other, let's see if you fit in, are you good enough for my kids and if we bump into some bumpy parts, are you going to work on it with me? I'm open to love, but right now I just think it's better for me to be on my own for a minute and learn more about myself."
With her stunning looks and amazing talent we are sure it won't take long for JLow to find another hot superstar interested in dating her, and who knows, maybe she'll get married again, after all, she's already done it three times.
