Jennifer Lopez: Marriage split is still fresh

Jennifer Lopez says it's "not time" to think about marriage again at the moment.

The songstress appeared on The Today Show with Matt Lauer, where she discussed the status of her personal life.

Jennifer and Marc Anthony separated after seven years of marriage last summer. The star is currently dating 24-year-old backing dancer Casper Smart, and when asked if she'd ever marry again, the beauty was tentative in her response.

"I don't know," she told Matt.

"We'll see. I don't know. It's not time to think about that yet. It's still fresh."

Jennifer is currently filming a Latin American TV talent show called Q'Viva with Marc. The 42-year-old says working with her estranged husband is not an impossible feat, as they are still so close.

"Marc and I were friends before we got married. We were friends for years. And we always loved each other and we always worked together. So it wasn't an unnatural thing for us to continue to work together," she explained.

"And we have children together [twins Max and Emme.] So he's always going to be in my life."

Host Matt became playful while quizzing the star about her split from Marc.

He read aloud Jennifer's Vanity Fair quotes on loving herself enough to walk away from her marriage to her former partner.

"Matt! I'm going to kill you right now. Why do you have to bring it up!" she exclaimed, before Matt asked her to "explain" further.

"No! I can't!" she laughed. "Because everything I wanted to say about the divorce I said in that article, and Marc and I agreed we weren't going to talk about it publicly again because it really is our personal life. ... At the end of the day, like I said, we're working together, we have a lot of love for each other and we're human. It's not the easiest thing in the world but I think we handle it with a lot of grace and a lot of caring and a lot of love."
