Now, Jennifer Lopez is known for being a woman of many talents...


And she's built quite the life for herself being one of the world's most recognized Latino singers and actresses.

But there's another reason that J-Lo is a household name...

Alongside her impressive career, Lopez is also famed for a string of high-profile relationships. Her first was Cuban waiter, Ojani Noa, to whom she was married between 1997 and 1998. The pair had one of the very first messy celebrity divorces that have now become a staple of celebrity culture - so we have a lot to thank them for!

Following this divorce was her first of a string of power-couple pairings.


Lopez began dating Sean Combs (better known as P-Diddy) in 1999 and gave us this incredible Grammys look that same year.

Internet urban legend claims that this dress was the reason for the invention of Google Images.

Diddy and Lopez also had a messy breakup, involving Diddy's eventual arrest for involvement in a shooting in Times Square.


After all that drama, she enjoyed a brief dalliance with former backup dancer, Chris Judd.

In fact, the pair enjoyed another whirlwind marriage between 2001 and 2002.

After her second divorce, Lopez began dating actor Ben Affleck.

The pair shared one of the very first celebrity couple names - Bennifer. Although the pair were set to marry in 2003, they ended up postponing their wedding just a day before, eventually splitting in January 2004.

​However, it seems as though they're rekindling their old flame...


But more on that after we get up to speed with JLo's relationship timeline...

Very quickly after breaking up with Affleck, Lopez began dating her childhood friend, Marc Anthony.

So quickly, in fact, that the two (yet again) married in June of the very same year.

In 2007, the pair announced that they were pregnant.

Lopez and Anthony's twins were born in Long Island on February 22nd, 2008. The kids are called Emme Maribel and Maximilian David.

3 years later, though, Anthony filed for divorce.


Between 2011 and 2016, Lopez had an on-again-off-again relationship with another former backup dancer, Casper Smart.

But that casual fling was quickly put to an end in 2017 when New York Yankees baseball player, Alex Rodriguez came into the picture.

From the get-go, it seemed like things were going very well between the loved-up pair.

They were even engaged to be married!

The pair appeared to be happier than ever...

But just a few weeks ago, news emerged that they had sadly "broken up."

Headlines across the globe claimed the pair had gone their separate ways.

Calling off their 2-year engagement.

At the time, it appeared to be fictitious....

And the pair eventually spoke out, saying the rumors were not true.

But just a few weeks ago...


The pair announced that they have, in fact, broken up.

In a joint statement, the pair said:


"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another's children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support."

Of course, we were all heartbroken about the news.


But not for very long, it seems as though, between then and now, JLo has rekindled with previous ex... Ben Affleck!

They've already taken a week-long vacation together...


And "Bennifer" fans have been ecstatic over the reunion.

A source close to them revealed that initially after the breakup, the pair were "just friends."


But E! News recently reported that status had updated.

A second source told the outlet this:

"They have been in touch here and there throughout the years. Ben reached out to her to see how she was doing and they had dinner together a few times within this last month. It's natural between them and the chemistry is unreal. They picked up where they last left off and are enjoying each other's company right now."

It was also confirmed that they both jetted off to the Yellowstone Club in Montana together for a week-long vacation.

"They were alone," the source stated. "Just the 2 of them."

Who knows where this little romance will go?


But it seems as if Matt Damon - a close friend to the pair - has some strong ideas about their rekindled love!

The actor appeared on Today on Tuesday from Australia where he is working...


And of course, he was questioned about Affleck and Lopez's going-ons!

Damon at first pretended to not know anything...


But it didn't take him long to cave!

"I love them both!" he said with a big grin, "I hope its true!"

We hope its true too, Matt!
