Jennifer Lopez Believes in Love, Speaks on Split

by at . Comments

Jennifer Lopez has been engaged four times and married three times. She's yet to make a relationship truly stick. But, speaking out for the first time since her divorce from Marc Anthony, the singer/actress says she remains an "eternal optimist."

"I believe in love," J. Lo says in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

What led to the split? Did Anthony nail some stewardess? Lopez won't get into details, but does admit it took her awhile to have the kind of self-confidence required to make such a life change.

"Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself... if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me."

Lopez says she will "always respect" Marc as a professional and says the father of her three-year old twins will "always be in our lives," holding a "special place" in her heart. But it's time to look ahead.

"I am positive, determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

Damn this broad just got divorced and she's talking about love! WTF! Chill and take care of your kids you ugly old hag. Get your shit straight instead of thinking about d**k! These kids are going to grow up seeing what a slutty ass mom they have. She needs to be alone for a while and concentrate on being a good mother! This is why guys leave her. This old hag is gonna be 70 and still getting with men and splitting. Dumb broad!

I can't stand this woman so I am happy for her husband but worries me are the innocent children are the ones who get hurt because there won't be a mother and father raising them and that so bad overall I really don't have the words. I believe she balanced children over jobs and the jobs won that to me that tells me she is not a responsible mother and he should get the children 24/7 but that won't happen but in this case it should.

why knock the woman. I know that sometimes shorter men have issues with control- and lets face it, JLo is a star, so she is bigger than Marc ( no pun intended)in more ways than one. why, oh, why does the woman always get the blame? If she feels like its not working and she leaves the man, she wrong. If the man leaves her and its because hes found someone else, then its the new womans fault.Ladies, why do we turn on each other? Men know that this will happen, and while we are going though all the s**t hes off to the next woman. Sad......
