Jennifer Lopez sang, "Love don't cost a thing." Despite the fact that many of her real-life relationships did not end well, the actress and singer continues to be a hopeless romantic.
Here is a timeline of her dating history:
In February 1997, Lopez married the producer, but their union was short-lived; they separated 11 months later.
In 2016, Noa made an appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs
Lopez and the hip-hop mogul began dating in 1999 after meeting on the shooting of a music video, but the couple parted up in 2001. Lopez alleged Diddy was unfaithful throughout their relationship in a 2003 interview with Vibe magazine.
The former couple remain friendly, embracing each other warmly backstage at her Las Vegas residency, All I Have, in September 2018.
On the set of her ‘Love Don't Cost a Thing’ music video, the actress met the dancer, and the two married in September 2001. By June 2002, the couple's marriage was over, and their divorce was formalised in 2003.
Since then, Judd has wedded Kelly Wolfe, with whom he has a daughter, Vivienne.
Lopez and Anthony married in June 2004, and in February 2008, they welcomed twins Max and Emme. They did, however, announce their separation in July 2011.
Beau ‘Casper’ Smart
In November 2011, just four months after divorcing Anthony, Lopez began dating the backup dancer. They separated up in June of that year, but continued to have an on-again, off-again romance until 2016 when they finally split up for good.
After attending Lopez's 'All I Have' event in December 2016, the rapper and Lopez first met backstage. They were dating in January 2017. Their brief engagement "died down a bit" once Drake embarked on his European tour, thus they called it quits in February 2017.
Following more than two years of dating, Lopez and the former Yankee confirmed their engagement in March 2019. After postponing their wedding many times during the pandemic, they broke up in 2021.
The Deep Water star and Lopez, who was dubbed "Bennifer" by the press, met on the set of Gigli and married in November 2002. The pair put off their wedding four days before it was scheduled to take place, and they later divorced in January 2004.
Affleck and Lopez reconciled in May 2021, and were seen together on several times, including a vacation in Montana and a romantic visit to Miami. The couple was formally back together later that month.
