JLo: I blamed myself
Jennifer Lopez felt guilty when she was cheated on by an ex.
The singer has been married three times and most recently had a relationship with backing dancer Casper Smart, which ended last year. She has also had high-profile romances with the likes of Puff Daddy and Ben Affleck, and while the 45-year-old didn’t reveal which one of her former flames she was referring to during an interview with British magazine Loaded, she did confess to blaming herself.
“I've been in relationships where there has been infidelity and you’re left to feel like you did something wrong, like there’s something wrong with you, you’re not enough, all of those feelings that we struggle with,” she revealed. “Men and women go through this by the way, it’s not just a woman thing.”
Despite her relationships not working out, the mother-of-two hasn’t let it stop her from believing in true love. And after her divorce from third husband Marc Anthony, which was finalised in June last year after separating in 2011, she made a point of not feeling bitter.
“After my divorce it was about growing and realising things about myself that I could share with people and realising that life is hard and sh*t happens and it gets bad sometimes but you’re going to dance again,” she continued. “You can always succumb to the depression and to the negative and become bitter, or you can become better. I like better than bitter.”
The former couple have seven-year-old twins Max and Emme together. But despite giving birth, Jennifer feels more confident now she is a mom than ever before.
“I always felt kind of sexy,” she added. “I think I feel more like myself now. I just know myself better and that’s sexy.”
