Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were considered one of the most popular celebrity couples during their marriage from 2004 to 2011. In fact, the couple was so popular that People magazine reportedly paid huge amounts of money to become the first media publication to publish photographs of the couple’s newly born twins in 2008.

Jennifer Lopez’s divorce came as a shock to fans and the media alike, as it was thought that the couple was enjoying a blissful married life. However, Anthony was reportedly micromanaging his wife during their marriage, and the “Let’s Get Loud” singer later revealed that she tried her best to save her marriage, which was reportedly affected by “jealousy issues.”
Unfortunately, any attempts to repair their marriage were ultimately unsuccessful, and the couple split in 2014. Jennifer Lopez still clearly feels the pangs of the breakup, as she recently broke down while filming an HBO documentary while recalling the emotionally turbulent experience she went through during their divorce.
Jennifer Lopez had been involved in a number of relationships before she married Marc Anthony, including marriages to Ojani Noa, a Cuban waiter, and Cris Judd, a backup dancer. She was also in romantic relationships with rapper Sean Combs and actor Ben Affleck.
Despite already dealing with two divorces and several breakups, her split from Marc Anthony proved to be the hardest to deal with, as their relationship had been a long one, and the actress and singer knew the breakup would be devastating for their then-6-year-old twins.

The Out of Sight actress revealed that she is very happy with her role on Shades of Blue, which she believes is not merely a cop show but a show about humans dealing with the inevitable good and bad in their lives. Jennifer Lopez is also the producer of the show and has admitted that she was initially reluctant to play the role. According to Forbes, Shades in Blue is so popular that NBC Universo, NBC’s Spanish television network, plans to broadcast the show to the large number of America’s Hispanic population.
Apart from being a famous singer, Jennifer Lopez is also an established actress who has acted in famous movies like Gigli, Selena, Maid in Manhattan, and The Boy Next Door.
Even though she has separated from Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez often crosses paths with her former husband for both professional and personal reasons. People magazine reported that the former spouses reunited to celebrate their twins’ ninth birthday.
