Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt, and more celebrities almost tied the knot but decided not to push it.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were together before he married Jennifer Garner. Meanwhile, Brad Pitt was also with Gwyneth Paltrow before he met and married Jennifer Aniston.
Check out the list of celebrities who almost got married but didn’t end up in the altar, according to Us Weekly.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez with a $2.5 million sparkler. However, the pair decided to end their relationship just four days before their scheduled wedding in 2003.
Following their split, Affleck said he has a lot of respect for JLo, and they still keep in touch.
At present, Lopez is gearing for her big day with fiance Alex Rodriguez. According to reports, she will be spending $5 million for her upcoming nuptials.
The On the Floor singer is reportedly in the mood of celebrating. They will limit their guests due to the COVID-19 pandemic but not the budget for the food and decorations. Rodriguez is reportedly supportive of Lopez’s whims for their wedding.
Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow
The GOOP founder took the blame on why they ended their relationship. Paltrow said they had a toxic split, and she lost her identity while dating Pitt. The Iron Man star said they had an unhealthy relationship at the time.
However, some sources claimed it was Pitt who called off the wedding. An insider alleged that he changed his mind and was caught in the frenzy of getting married.
A different tipster agreed and said, Pitt was “commitment-shy” and still had to figure out what he wanted.
Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland
Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland’s wedding day was set just like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. However, the Runaway Bride pulled off three days before their big day.
Roberts spent their supposed wedding day with Sutherland’s best friend Jason Patric. On the same day, Sutherland moved out of Roberts’ home.
Years after their split, Sutherland was thankful that Roberts decided not to push with their wedding.
“I commend Julia for seeing how young and silly we were, even at the last minute, even as painful and as difficult as it was. Thank God she saw it,” he told Rolling Stone.
When asked about his best friend whom Roberts dated after their split, Sutherland said he was surprised that Patric didn’t inform him about his feelings for Roberts.
“We were friends, and I’m surprised that I never got a call from him saying I’ve fallen in love with da-da-da. Instead, I found out from a stranger,” he said.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson
The Bang Bang singer had a whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson. They were supposed to tie the knot in 2018 but decided to postpone the wedding.
However, they eventually broke up. The Rain On Me songstress is currently in a relationship with Dalton Gomez. According to sources, the two split after realizing that their relationship was too fast.
