Jennifer Lopez is opening about her first relationship with Ben Affleck and what went wrong between the two of them.

The now husband and wife were engaged to be married in 2003 only to break off their engagement three days before their wedding.

“Ben and I, we broke up three days before our wedding,” Jennifer revealed in her new documentary titled The Greatest Love Story Never Told. “We had a big wedding planned—14 ushers and bridesmaids—and three days before, we just crumbled under the pressure.”

Jennifer explained that being Hollywood’s “It” couple at the time was too much for them. “The massive amount of scrutiny around out private life,” Lopez said was the main reason for their break up.

Lopez went on to say for years after ending their first engagement, “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.”
