Happy birthday the gorgeous and scintillating star, Jennifer Lopez. The 'Jenny From The Block' singer turns 46 today. Although Jennifer Lopez has always had a growing career with successful songs and movies in her kitty her love life never succeeded as she wanted to.
Jennifer Lopez aka JLo has always made headlines for her failed romance. Be it her infamous called off wedding to Ben Affleck in 2004 or her failed marriage to Ojani Noa or Marc Antony, the singer turned actress had always failed in her love life.
Lopez's first marriage was in 1997 to model Ojani Noa which lasted only a year. Her second marriage was to her back-up dancer, Chris Judd. JLo began dating back-up dancer Cris Judd in early 2001 after her split with Sean Combs aka P Diddy. The couple got married and filed for divorce in 2003 after she started dating Gigli co-star, Ben Affleck.
"I've been married twice but I haven't had a marriage yet," Lopez told Primetime's Diane Sawyer. "This is not to take anything away from Cris or Ojani, who are wonderful people and who I loved very much - but I think it more had to do with me ... being in such a crazy life and needing a sense of security."
She also said she "cared very deeply" for Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, whom she dated between her two marriages. But she said she and Combs did not share "the same kind of ideals about life and family."
On the 46th birthday of Jennifer Lopez, check out the failed romances of the diva.
From February 22, 1997 to January 1998, she was married to Cuban waiter and model, Ojani Noa. The year long wedding ended with a divorce.
Sean Combs aka P Diddy
JLo and Sean Combs came out public about their romance in September 1999, months after secretly dating. She was with him when his entourage got into a night club argument in New York that ended in gun fire. While Lopez was cleared of criminal charges early on, Combs was into the criminal process for 2 years which took a toll on the couple's relationship. By the end, she was already rumored to be seeing back-up dancer Cris Judd in 2001.
Before publicly splitting with P Diddy, JLo started dating back-up dancer Cris Judd, whom she was married to from September 29, 2001 to June 2002. It was rumoured that JLo started dating Ben Affleck when she was married to Cris.
Rumours of their dating commenced in November 2001 when they were co-starring in Gigli. The two began seeing each other publicly in June, 2002 and were dubbed 'Bennifer'. Jennifer filed for divorce from Cris Judd on July 22, three days after she called Ben her boyfriend. Ben and Jen got engaged in November, and the two were very nearly married on September 14, 2003 when they called it off for sometime. A few months later, Bennifer split in January, 2004.
She first fell in love with David Cruz in 1984. Jennifer Lopez started seeing him when she was just 15, but they broke up after being together for 10 years. In 2004 she said about David, "He's a friend and he probably knows me better than anyone else."
Jennifer Lopez found support from Marc Anthony after her split with fiance Ben Affleck. JLo and Marc started seeing each other 3 weeks after her breakup and the couple got married on June 5, 2004, at her Miami Beach mansion, just four days after the finalization of Anthony's divorce from former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. The couple have two fraternal twins together. However, the dream marriage fell apart and they ended their marriage in July 2011.
Since her divorce with Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez has been in on-again off-again romance with Casper Smart. The singer started dating the backup dancer in November 2011 and parted ways in June 2014. However, the couple's recent spotting and PDAs show that they have rekindled their romance.
