The engagement of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has been all we’ve heard about lately and we’re not complaining. With everyone getting divorced, breaking up, or moving on from relationships – it’s like love has been dead.
Jennifer addressed the breakup when speaking to Rolling Stone. It turns out that the two split ways due, in part, to the intense media scrutiny.
“It was brutal,” Lopez said in regards to her scrutiny. “It was brutal. It’s one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business.”
But when the conversation changed focus to the 2004 split, Lopez said, “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.”
We’re thankful that these two are back together and have found their way.
