Jennifer Lopez said she and Ben Affleck just crumbled under the pressure 

“Ben and I, we broke up three days before our wedding,” the 54-year-old  said in the documentary. “We had a big wedding planned—14 ushers and bridesmaids—and three days before, we just crumbled under the pressure.”

Moreover, the “Mother” actress said of their time apart,”For all those years, it was really hard because I didn’t just feel like I lost the love of my life, I felt like I lost the best friend that I ever had, And I couldn’t talk for so many years, and that was the hardest part.”

Although she was “angry” at her now husband “But that heartbreak set both of us on a course to figuring ourselves out to being better people.”

However, Lopez had found peace after letting go of both Ben and herself for their past issues. 

As she put in,”I feel like I came out the other side, I’ve made it through. I’ve made something good of my life. I’m proud of of that.”

It isn’t only time she talked about her split in an interview with Variety she said, “Our relationship crumbled under the weight of the pressure. We lost a sense of ourselves, and we needed to separate because we didn’t know how to survive it. I had to figure myself out, and he had to figure himself out.”

In 2003, after the break-up the couple released a joint statement, saying, “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.”

The statement added,”When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.”
