JLo: I need to be on my own
Jennifer Lopez needed time to herself following her recent breakup.
The 45-year-old hitmaker is mother to six-year-old twins Max and Emme, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. In 2011 she began seeing dancer Casper Smart, but the former couple split earlier this year amidst rumours he had been unfaithful.
"I'm just being on my own. I feel like I need that right now," the songstress said on The Meredith Vieira Show Monday via E! News. "I've been in relationships kind of back to back my whole life and I just needed time."
JLo has been married three times, including to singer Marc, Cuban waiter Ojani Noa and choreographer-and-actor Cris Judd. The singer has also been romantically linked to P Diddy and Ben Affleck. Now the If You Had My Love star is ready to take a step back from her love life and focus on her family.
"I need time to just chill and just know me and enjoy my kids and actually make time for other friends instead of just the relationship thing,” she said on the talk show.
Jennifer previously opened up about her two children in an interview with the British edition of the magazine Elle, explaining that her daughter Emme is her “mirror”. The star added Emme is “super-emotional, joyful, energetic, athletic” with a “very soft emotional core”.
“When she gets hurt, it hurts really bad and I know that feeling because that is me,” Jennifer told the publication.
While Emme is outgoing and emotional her brother Max is apparently the opposite. The proud mother described her son as “clever, scientific, smart and completely strong-willed”.
