Jennifer Lopez had three divorces before meeting her now-fiance, Alex Rodriguez. She said that all of her past relationships had one thing in common.
Jennifer Lopez has become one of the most successful celebrities today. While her fame and success have continued to flourish, her romantic relationships do not seemingly share the same dynamic. As reported, she had a lot of failed relationships in the past before meeting her now-soon-to-be-husband, Alex Rodriguez.
The Hustlers actress has not kept her past links in private. She even discussed her relationships in interviews and opened up about it in her book, True Love.
Jennifer Lopez and her three marriages
Jennifer Lopez has an interesting dating history. The Oprah Magazine reported that she first dated her high school sweetheart, David Cruz when she was 15. The relationship reportedly lasted for a decade.
In 1997, she “fell for” and married Ojani Noa, who was a Cuban waiter she met before her stint on Selena. The marriage did not go well, though, as they divorced a year later. She even ended up suing him after Noa planned to release a tell-all book about the songstress.
Three years later, the Let’s Get Loud singer met her second husband, Chris Judd. However, they decided to get a divorce in 2002 because they did not reportedly have what it takes to make their marriage work.
Following her second marriage, she met Ben Affleck and decided to tie the knot. But before they get to their “I Dos,” the couple called off the engagement and parted ways in 2004.
In the same year, she met her third husband, Marc Anthony. The marriage lasted for seven years. They also had a twin, Max, and Emme. In 2011, they ended their marriage due to “irreconcilable differences.”
Jennifer Lopez also dated other men before and after her three marriages. Some of them include Wesley Snipes, Sean Combs, and Casper Smart.
She revealed the one thing her relationships had in common
In her book, True Love, Jennifer Lopez shared her reflections about “life and relationships,” according to Cheat Sheet. Based on her observations, she revealed that all of her past relationships share one thing common.
The On The Floor artist said that all of her previous links had a “passionate intensity” that she mistook for “true love.” She added that in each of those times, she thought that her “childhood fairy tale” was coming to life.
She always dreamed of having a “perfect family,” with kids and a husband who loves her “above all else.” However, she reportedly realized that “passion and love” are not the same.
Despite all this, Jennifer Lopez might have already found the one in Alex Rodriguez. The couple announced their engagement earlier last year and have since continued to live together happily.
