Jennifer Lopez says cruel criticism of her and Ben Affleck ‘destroyed’ their relationship
Jennifer Lopez says heavy criticism of her and Ben Affleck ‘destroyed’ their relationship in the early 2000s.
The actress, 52, reflected on the cruelty which tore Bennifer apart from ‘the inside out’ in an interview with Rolling Stone.
‘It was brutal,’ Jennifer told the publication. ‘It was brutal. It’s one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business.

‘It’s funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love. It was one of the happiest times of my life.
‘But also, there was this other thing happening where we were being criticized, and it really destroyed our relationship from the inside out, because we were just too young to understand at that time what were really the most important things in life.’
At the time, the comments were cruel and shocking.
JLo was referred to as a ‘mean-spirited b*tch’ on a South Park episode which teased her Latin background.

She and Ben were also targeted in a sketch on Conan O’Brien’s show, where his ‘script intern’ played Affleck and the ‘cleaning lady’ portrayed Jennifer.
Their engagement ended in 2004 but they found their way back to one another again last year.
Last week Jennifer announced she had accepted another proposal from Ben.

‘Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?’ she wrote in her post. ‘Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed.
‘I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES.’
‘I was smiling so big and tears were coming down my face, feeling so incredibly happy and whole.
‘It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined…just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other. Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love.’
Ben proposed to Jennifer with a dazzling lime green ring which JLo said had ‘always been’ her lucky color.
‘Green has always been my lucky color and now, for sure, it always will be.’
