Jennifer Lopez got engaged to Alex Rodriguez a few days ago. It is her fifth engagement.
It certainly seems that Jennifer Lopez has had a fair share of engagements and marriages. She has been engaged four times and married three times before which highlights the fact that she isn’t sure of her choice of life partners.
1. First husband O Jani Noa
In 1997, Jennifer married a waiter turned restaurateur named O Jani Noa. It turned out to be a stupid choice as they divorced within one year of the marriage.
