One of the extremely popular entertainers of today, Jennifer Lopez has shown her versatility to the world as a dancer, actor and singer.
She is still considered by many as the most ravishing woman in the entertainment industry. She is also one of the richest celebrities with an estimated net worth of $250 million. With the dream of becoming a “famous movie star”, Lopez left her hometown for New York and started her journey as a dancer. Soon her beauty and talent was discovered and thus, began her film career. Later on, when she gained fair amount of success as an actor, she diverted her attention towards singing.
In no time, her songs became a rage and were charting at no.1 in America. Her sensational dances in the music videos rapidly enhanced the sales and got her a celebrity status. However, as she remained in constant public attention, her relationships served as a fodder for celebrity gossips. She married thrice – two of which lasted for a year or even less. She was married for the longest time to singer Marc Anthony with whom she has two children, but then, like her previous marriages, it could not last forever.
Jennifer is the second of the three children born to Guadalupe Rodriguez and David Lopez. She was five when her parents sent her to singing and dancing classes and when she grew up, she was enrolled in the Preston High School. In the final year of high school, she sought several small film projects and landed herself a role in a low-budget film ‘My Little Lady’ in 1986. She went to the ‘Baruch College’ but later dropped out, with the dream of becoming a movie star.
Her parents, however, did not approve of the career she chose for herself. This caused her to move out of her family and live separately in Manhattan.
Lopez married Cuban actor OjaniNoa, in February 1997 which lasted less than a year and the couple divorced in January 1998.
On September 29, 2001, she married actor and choreographer Cris Judd and filed for divorce in June 2002.
In 2002, she had started dating actor Ben Affleck and they got engaged in November of that year. They parted ways in January 2004.
