Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have been married for close to three weeks now. And it is no secret that the couple has been hounded by paparazzi to get the latest scoops of the couple. However, Jennifer Lopez’s first husband, Ojani Noa, recently expressed his thoughts on the recent marriage.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s relationship so far
In a small chapel in Las Vegas, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez exchanged their wedding vows. And after their nuptials, they went on a “mini-honeymoon” by eloping to Europe. While in Paris, the couple was photographed publicly declaring their love for one another.
We initially learned of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s surprise Vegas wedding on July 16, 2022. The couple’s private wedding ceremony took place in a Little White Chapel in Las Vegas in front of their kids. This is not the first time the two are in a relationship. The actress and Ben Affleck rekindled their romance after almost 2 decades, and in April of last year, they made an engagement announcement where Ben Affleck, 49, and Jennifer Lopez, 53, expressed their gratitude for one another.
Ojani Noa, Jennifer Lopez’s first husband claims their marriage won’t stick
Ojani Noa, the actor, and producer, was Jennifer Lopez’s first husband. After catching news of her latest marriage with Ben Affleck, he stated the following to The Daily Mail.
“I wish her and Ben [Affleck]the best, but I’m not convinced it will last. I think she’s someone who will be married seven or eight times. I can’t see her ever settling down with one person. She pushes herself to constantly go forward in her professional life, which is why she’s had a three-decade career, but she also moves on in her private life.“
Ojani Noa’s words strike without hesitation as he hints at the American singer having an insatiable hunger for going forward, whether it be her professional life or personal.
How did Jennifer Lopez break up with her first husband?
Ojani Noa was married to Jennifer Lopez for a year between 1997 and 1998 before she married again in 2001.
“Ben [Affleck] is husband number four, I was husband number one and she told me I was the love of her life. When we lay in bed on our wedding night, she said we would be together forever.” The actor/producer stated.
Ojani Noa described exactly what happened that caused the separation in such a short time, he said:
“She went from Jen to being J-Lo, this big business bringing in millions. She had all these new people around her, all wanting to make money off her. I would call and an assistant would say ‘Sorry, she’s not available’. We wanted kids, we discussed having kids, then she told me she couldn’t have a baby because it would interfere with her career. Our whole life became a lie.“
It is difficult to say if these words come from old wounds or as a warning to the Batman actor as they have just started their love life as husband and wife.
