After being together from 2002 to 2004, and having interrupted the relationship shortly before the wedding, now after twenty years Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have finally crowned their dream of love. During an interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music 1, the pop star spoke about this surprising backfire. “Twenty years ago I fell in love with the love of my life. I was working on a record called This Is Me…Then. It was about stopping that moment in time. And now, the most amazing and incredible thing that could have happened happened. Now I want to freeze this moment in time again. And now it’s even better than the first time”. He then continued: “Me and Ben don’t say now, ‘Let’s see how it goes.’ No. Now it’s, ‘It’s you and me. That’s all. Until the end'”. Jennifer Lopez then recalled the moment in which, in 2004, the two ended the story. “It was so painful after we broke up. Once we called off our wedding 20 years ago, it was the biggest pain of my life. I honestly felt like I was going to die. She sent me into a spiral for the next eighteen years,” she admitted.
