London: Jennifer Lopez`s ex-husband Cris Judd says the singer-actress wasn`t always easy to work with.

Lopez was married to Judd for nine months in 2001 and the dancer admits the 43-year-old is still a "diva" for him, reported Contactmusic.

"The most respected one would have to be Diana Ross. It was a pleasure to work with her and we all called her Miss Ross. But, of course, Jennifer is a diva! She`s an amazing performer and a confident professional. She`s always striving to be better. You have to respect that," Judd said.

Despite their short-lived union, he insists he and the former `American Idol` judge are still on good terms and have an amicable relationship.

"I was doing a tribute for Michael Jackson at MTV and I saw her in the audience. We kind of waved at each other, and that was about it. The things that happened between us... It didn`t work out, but it was amicable. We left on good terms."
