American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is one of the biggest superstars in the music industry, but her music isn’t the only thing that’s made headlines over the years. J.Lo’s relationships have created just as much attention as her number ones, and in a recent panel for the hit reality singing competition, the mother of two opened up about her love life, including her failed marriage to Marc Anthony.
Ahead of the American Idol premiere tonight, Jennifer Lopez took part in a Q & A panel where she discussed more than what’s in store for season 13 of the singing competition. In fact, J.Lo’s relationships took center stage, and the Latina songstress discussed everything from her three failed marriages to her current relationship with dancer-choreographer Casper Smart.
When asked about her split from Marc Anthony in 2011, J.Lo replied, “That was a transformative year for me in so many ways. I had just divorced, and I went on tour with the kids and it was just like, ‘hooooo!’ And I left Idol. It’s like all my security blankets were gone and I was out there doing something I had never done before.” Prior to her marriage to Anthony, Jennifer was married to OjaniNoa from 1997-1998 and Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003. She was also involved in a couple of very high-profile romances with Diddy and Ben Affleck before marrying Anthony.
Now that Jennifer’s been involved with Casper Smart for two years, she’s comfortable admitting to herself that she doesn’t like to be single. “I’m one of those people who does not like to be alone. I have no shame saying that at this point in my life,” revealed. “I think we have to own who we are.” And as for whether or not that means marrying for a fourth time? J.Lo says maybe. “I don’t know, I don’t know, we’ll see. I always believed in that institution. My parents were married for a very long time, for 35 years. I believe in it. It’s difficult. I’ve had my challenges but at the same time I believe in love. That’s the main thing.”
