Following their split, Lopez moved on with Ben Affleck, her former flame from the early 2000s.
The pair were famously engaged in 2002, but called off their engagement due to the intense media attention their relationship attracted.
Sadly, they ended up splitting completely in 2004.
“I am confirming the report that Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Ben Affleck,” her rep said in a statement at the time. “At this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy.”

Looking back, Affleck reflected on why the pair decided to bring their happy relationship to an end.
“I think Jen and I made a mistake in that we fell in love, we were excited and maybe too accessible,” he later explained. ‘I don’t think either of us anticipated the degree to which it would take on a world of its own.”
But after rekindling their relationship in 2021, Affleck decided to propose to the Let’s Get Loud singer that April.
The pair finally celebrated their wedding in a three-day affair from August 19 to 21 after eloping in Las Vegas on July 16.
