Has Jennifer Lopez Been Married Before? How many spouses has JLo had?

Jennifer Lopez has been linked to several high-profile romances since her debut in the profession.

She’s been married three times and has been engaged twice before calling those partnerships off.

J. Lo was candid about her dating history in a 2019 interview with Harper’s Bazaar. 

For me, the relationship journey has been very up and down. But it didn’t have to do with anybody else but me it was about me figuring out me,” said Jennifer. “Until you learn to love yourself, you can’t completely love [someone else] in a way that is pure and true.”

Since that conversation, a lot has happened, including the rekindling of her relationship with her then-ex-now-husband, Ben Affleck.
