Jennifer Lopez admitted in an interview with Variety that she and her husband Ben Affleck still suffer from post-traumatic disorder after their failed romance in the 2000s. Their first attempt to start a relationship ended in a broken engagement, and this happened, according to Lopez, due to excessive public attention to their couple.
She noted that PTSD still affects their relationship. "But we're older now. We are wiser. We also know what's important, what really matters in life, and it's not so much about what other people think. It's about being true to who you are,” the singer said.
Jennifer Lopez will also reveal details about their relationship in her new album "This Is Me... Now" and its accompanying mini-film, which will be released in February. According to her, not everyone approved of the idea of sharing personal things, but she considers it important for herself. "Artists should follow their heart, and I followed my heart and did something that maybe not everyone thought was the best idea, but I had to do it."
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met back in the 2000s and attracted a lot of attention, becoming one of the brightest celebrity couples. But their feelings could not withstand such a test: in 2003, they unexpectedly postponed the planned wedding, and soon broke up completely. After the breakup, they married other people: Lopez married Marc Anthony, and Affleck married actress Jennifer Garner.
They rekindled their relationship in 2021 and finally got married in 2022. However, they are still often discussed online: now because of Ben Affleck’s eternally gloomy face. In addition, the network notes that he looks much more cheerful in the company of his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, which also probably does not have the best effect on the relationship between Affleck and Lopez. According to insiders, Lopez even asked her husband to limit communication with his ex-wife.
