We can only hope, both men and women, to look half as good as Jennifer Lopez does at 46-years-old.
No matter what Jenny From The Block sets her mind to during her career – whether that be singing or acting – she’s slaying the game and the competition. She first entered the entertainment industry in a minor role in the 1986 film, My Little Girl. She dipped her toes into the music industry in 1999 with her debut album, On The 6, to critical success.
In 2001, she became the first woman to have a number one and film in the same week. If there’s anyone who could give Beyonce a run for her money, it’s definitely J. Lo. But you’re not here to learn about her career successes. Unfortunately, her dating history indicates that she has been far less successful in romance than she has been in the entertainment industry.
Despite undergoing many several public break-ups and make-ups, Lopez has not stopped searching for romance. We give her a lot of credit for that.
Check out Lopez’s full dating history below?
David Cruz 1984-1994
Lopez was only 15-years-old when she first started dating her first love, David Cruz. The two moved from New York to Los Angeles after Lopez got her first job as a back up dancer in the show, In Living Colour. Her relationship with Cruz happens to be the longest lasting out of all of her romances to date.
Ojani Noa 1997-1998
Lopez met her first husband, Ojani Noa when he was working as a waiter at a Miami restaurant. The two were married in 1997 but divorced a year later.
Two years after the divorce, Noa tried to use photos and 11 hours of video footage to make a film about their life together. Lopez filed a $10 million lawsuit to stop Noa – to which the court granted a temporary restraining order.
Sean Combs a.k.a. P. Diddy 1999-2001
While Lopez was working on her first album, On The 6, she struck a relationship with the rapper/producer, P. Diddy.
In December 1999, Diddy was arrested in relation to a shooting at a Manhattan nightclub. He was arrested on weapons charges. Lopez, who was with him at the time, was also charged, but the count was dropped within an hour.
Their relationship never recovered and they soon broke up.
Cris Judd 2001-2002
Lopez and Cris Judd first met when he directed her music video for “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.” J. Lo married her second husband, Cris Judd, in 2001. The marriage lasted only nine months. Judd blamed the split on Lopez’s dedication to her burgeoning career.
