London: Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez has for the first time spoken out about her failed romances with Ojani Nao, Sean Combs, Cris Judd and Ben Affleck and how these affected her.
Lopez`s first marriage was to Cuban-born Ojani Noa (in 1997) which lasted for less than a year before the union fell apart at the start of her career and the couple divorced in 1998.
Lopez next had a two-and-a-half-year relationship with hip-hop mogul Sean Combs, but admits their relationship "did get sordid" after she was pulled into his infamous trial on a charge of felony gun possession. Combs was later acquitted.
Lopez then married back-up dancer Cris Judd, but the romance was doomed and the couple divorced in 2003.
The 40-year-old claims romance with actor-director Ben Affleck was really life-changing and admits being dumped by the actor just days before their wedding in 2004. This left her completely heartbroken.
"I don`t think I had ever been heartbroken in that way before - had so many hopes and dreams on something. This was the first time and it was tough," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying in a TV interview.
"When you go through that kind of heartbreak in front of everybody you are not quite the same person you were before."
"I always wanted that fairytale. It just didn`t work out. But I kept trying - you can`t blame a girl for trying," she added.
Lopez eventually found happiness with singer-actor Marc Anthony and celebrated her six year wedding anniversary last month. Now, she feels her life together with two-year-old twins Emme and Max is more complete than any relationship she`s ever known.
