Jennifer Lopez: I was a love addict
Jennifer Lopez has admitted she was a "love addict" - and says there's nothing wrong with dating younger men.
The 45-year-old told Self magazine that she found solace from her break-ups by getting into new relationships.
"When you have that much pain, you have to anaesthetise yourself ... People do different things. Some go out and party and sleep around, but that's just not my way," she said.
"I found the comfort in someone else. That's called being a love addict."
But she said that she had learnt to face her fears and spend time on her own.
J-Lo, who has had three failed marriages, most recently to Marc Anthony, added: "It took me years to get there. So first it was learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears."
The singer, who recently split from 27-year-old dancer Casper Smart, added: "Enough with the cliches about women. We can date younger guys. It's no big deal."
She added: "Men have been doing this for years".
