You don’t find Jennifer Lopez discussing anyone before Marc Anthony often, if at all. Known for guarding her privacy closely, Lopez has at times been known for her romantic relationships almost as much as for her entertainment and entrepreneurial resume: Sean “Diddy” Combs, Chris Judd, Ben Affleck — remember “Bennifer?”
Lopez’s first marriage to Cuban-born Ojani Noa was short-lived and litigious after Lopez married the Miami waiter in February 1997 — then divorced in January 1998. After the relationship, the pair was in and out of court over a book deal and a planned film of their very brief marriage.
Lopez’s relationships have even resulted in gunfire. In December 1999, Lopez and then-boyfriend hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs were at a midtown Manhattan club when gunfire broke out between Combs’ associates and another group. He was later found not guilty of felony charges in the highly publicized trial and, shortly thereafter, Lopez ended their involvement.
Recently, though, Lopez opened up about Diddy. The pair reunite this week on ‘American Idol.’ The twist is that the guarded singer, actress and ‘American Idol’ judge spoke about her involvement with Diddy in a recorded interview — with her sister — for Latina magazine.
Here’s what the star told Columnist Lynda Lopez.
