Jennifer Lopez’s first husband wishes her well, sows doubts about marriage to Ben Affleck

Two weeks later Jennifer Lopez married her longtime flame Ben Affleck, the actress’s first husband, Ojani Noa, said he wishes them the best but doubts they’ll be together “forever.”

“I wish her and Ben the best, but I’m not convinced it will stay that way,” the Cuban actor and personal trainer, who was married to Lopez from 1997-1998, told the Daily Mail in an interview published Saturday. . “Jen loves being in love, but she’s been engaged six times already. Ben is man number four. I was man number one and she told me I was the love of her life. When we were in bed on our wedding night, she said we would be together forever.”

He said he’s happy his ex has it married to Affleck but thinks she is “one who will marry seven or eight times.”

“I never see her settling down with one person,” he admitted. “She pushes herself to constantly move forward in her professional life, which is why she has had a career spanning three decades, but she also continues in her private life.”

Noa said he often felt like “Mr. Cinderella” when he was with the “Marry Me” star.

Ultimately, he said their relationship was complicated by what he called the “celebrity-feeding parasites” after she became a superstar.

After they got married, and she became an overnight sensation with 1997’s “Selena,” he said their relationship was starting to sour. He said she had new people around who wanted to make money off her, and he was jealous that he started seeing her in pictures with rapper Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy, which she said was just “business.” She and Combs later dated after her breakup with Noa.

Noa also said she didn’t want to get pregnant because she was afraid it would hurt her career.

“She went from Jen to J Lo, this big company that brought in millions,” he said of her instant superstar.

“We fell in love when she was already famous,” he told the outlet. “But during our marriage she became a megastar. For years it was too painful to talk about. I wanted to lay low and live my life. But when I saw her marry Ben, who is a good guy, the feelings came back.”

Lopez and Affleck were previously engaged in 2002 before breaking up in 2004. The couple revived last year before they decided to wed on July 17 at a drive-thru wedding chapel in Las Vegas. The couple announced their second engagement in April.

Before rejoining Affleck, Lopez was engaged to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez.

The Puerto Rican pop star was married to dancer Cris Judd from 2001-2003 and to singer Marc Anthony from 2004-2014. She and Anthony share 14-year-old twins Emme and Max.
