Jennifer Lopezs first husband not convinced Ben Affleck marriage will last

Jennifer Lopez’s first husband Ojani Noa has opened up about his ex’s recent nuptials to Hollywood star Ben Affleck, claiming he’s "not convinced" it will last.

Jennifer, 53, and Ben, 49, tied the knot in Las Vegas earlier this month after they rekindled their romance last year after nearly 20 years since they were first in a relationship.

During their time together back in the early 00s, the pair – affectionately nicknamed Bennifer – first got engaged in 2002, though they called time on their relationship in 2004 before reuniting in 2021.

Jennifer was previously married to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014, prior to this she was married to Cris Judd between 2001 and 2003 and her first marriage was to Ojani, who she married in 1997 but split from the following year.

Ojani, 48, has now spoken out about his relationship with Jennifer and the friendship they shared for years after. The former model also spoke out about her recent wedding to Ben.

“I wish her and Ben the best, but I’m not convinced it will last,” he told The Daily Mail, adding: "Jen loves being in love but she’s been engaged six times. Ben is husband number four. I was husband number one and she told me I was the love of her life. When we lay in bed on our wedding night, she said we would be together for ever."

The now personal trainer met Jennifer in 1996 after he found work as a dishwasher at Estefan’s restaurant, Lario’s On The Beach, where Jennifer came in.

Recalling their romance, Ojani added: "We were together romantically for two years but friends for nearly a decade. There were many times I felt like Mr Cinderella. She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. In the beginning, I had no idea who she was.

"We fell in love when she was already famous. But during our marriage she became a megastar. For years it was too painful to talk about. I wanted to lie low and live my life. But when I saw she got married to Ben, who is a good guy, the feelings came flooding back."
