These days Jennifer Lopez is in a relationship with former New York Yankees slugger and current MLB analyst Alex Rodriguez. The pair made their red carpet debut in May 2017 at the Met Gala after they had been seeing each other since February of the same year.

They are still going strong today and share a lot of the same interests, have children the same age, and purchased a home together. While J. Lo has said that she’s in no rush to get married again we think these two may be in it for the long haul and we’re totally pulling for them but there are a few other celebs the “My Love Don’t Cost a Thing” singer dated in the past that we’ll always look back on fondly.

Here are some of Lopez’s other high-profile relationships.

Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs

The actress dated rapper and record producer Sean “Diddy” Combs from 1999 to 2001 and back then they were music’s ultimate power couple who we just couldn’t get enough of. Lopez, however, had enough once she became suspicious that he was cheating on her.

“It was the first time I was with someone who wasn’t faithful,” she revealed. “I was in this relationship with Puff where I was totally crying, crazy and going nuts, it really took my whole life in a tailspin … I never caught him but I just knew. He’d say he was going to a club for a couple of hours and then never come back that night.”

Chris Judd

Chris Judd actually became famous for dating and marrying the “Jenny From the block” artist.

Lopez and Judd were linked almost immediately after her split from Diddy and they ended up tying the knot in September of 2001. Less than a year later though, they filed for divorce.

It was her second marriage after her 1997 union with waiter Ojani Noa.

Ben Affleck

Everyone remembers the original “Bennifer.”

Affleck and Lopez got together while working on the infamously bad movie Gigli. They weathered the storm of awful reviews together and became engaged in 2003. Just a few days before they were set to walk down the aisle, Affleck called off the wedding. Then, a few months later, they called off their relationship for good.

Marc Anthony

Following her broken engagement with Affleck, Lopez tried marriage for the third time with fellow musician Marc Anthony.

The two wed during a private ceremony in 2004 and welcomed twins Emme and Maximilian in 2008. Three years later, they announced their separation. However, they have remained friends as they co-parent their children.

Beau ‘Casper’ Smart

Just like Judd, Beau “Casper” Smart was one of Lopez’s backup dancers whose name showed up in headlines when he started dating the star.

They were together on-and-off from 2011 to 2016 but Smart’s infidelity is reportedly the reason they broke up. “She kicked him out because he cheated on her and he got caught,” a source told. “It happened years ago, and he promised he would never do it again and once he did, she was done.”


We may never be sure exactly what this was but it all started with a photo on social media.

The Instagram pic of them together sent romances rumors flying and then came video evidence that something was going on when they were spotted kissing one another at a prom-themed party they each attended.

Insiders though maintained it was nothing serious and in March 2017, J Lo set the record straight on The Daily Show saying, “Let me clear this up. I am not with Drake.”
