Jennifer Lopez Comes Clean About Her “Devastating” Divorce From Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez is certainly no stranger to heartbreak. Even though she’s currently happily in love with her former backup dancer, Casper Smart, the singer’s divorce from Marc Anthony last year left her seriously hurting.
In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, J.Lo opens up about the downfall of her relationship with the father of her twins and how she went on to heal.
“I had to figure out what I did wrong that I was in a relationship where I was accepting situations that weren't good for me. If you're allowing yourself to be in a bad relationship, you need to understand why,” she said. "I had to turn [the breakup] into something better. I thought, 'I don't want to just survive it, I want to come out better."
“I didn’t want to be the woman who stayed in bed for months,” she added. “I did do that a little, but I knew I had to get through it.”
And get through it J.Lo did. In addition to revamping her career, the singer also found love again.
"It's nice when someone comes along, and it works. It's great," she told the site of her new love with 25-year-old Casper. "I'm lucky to have someone in my life now who understands my family and accepts them. I now believe in the fairytale more than ever. I believe in happily ever after with love."
