Jennifer Lopez’s marriage to Ben Affleck won’t last, says singer’s first husband

Los Angeles: Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez’s first husband, Ojani Noa, fears his fourth marriage to movie star Ben Affleck could fail. Cuban-born dishwasher turned occasional actor Ojani Noa stole the singer’s heart 25 years ago. Working at a restaurant in Miami, Ojani charmed J-Lo shortly before her big Selena break, reports mirror.co.uk.

After a whirlwind romance, the couple married in February 1997, but the following year their marriage fell apart. He now lives a quiet life out of the spotlight, but has had a say in his former love’s latest trip down the aisle. “I wish him and Ben all the best but I’m not sure it will last,” the 48-year-old told MailOnline. “Jen loves being in love but she’s been engaged six times and Ben is husband number four.

“I was husband number one and she told me I was the love of her life – when we went to bed on our wedding night she said we would be together forever.”

Jennifer had told her YouTube channel that “I’ve been married three times, and once for nine months and once for 11 months, so I’m not really counting them.”

After their separation, Ojani attempted to pursue a career in film. He appeared in films in 2002, 2004 and 2007 and also worked as a producer. Although they divorced in 1998, they remained friends for many years thereafter.

Lopez continued to publicly date P. Diddy shortly after their split was finalized. She then married Cris Judd in 2001 and Latin music star Marc Anthony three years later.

Lopez is sure it’s Ben despite her first husband’s comments and says she’s never been happier. The couple, who were previously engaged in the early 2000s, tied the knot in an intimate Las Vegas wedding earlier this month.

Confirming the news in her On The JLo fan newsletter, the singer-actress wrote, “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience .Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, lined up for a license with four other couples, all making the same trip to the wedding capital of the world.”

The couple’s five children were also present as witnesses.
