Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have finally opened up about what really transpired for them to call off their wedding back in 2003. The couple shares, in their new documentary "The Greatest Love Story Never Told," which is available on Amazon Prime, that they "crumbled under the pressure" of public scrutiny.

The couple apparently cancelled their wedding with only three days to go and will say, "Ben and I broke up three days before our wedding. We had a big wedding planned—14 ushers and bridesmaids—and three days before we just crumbled under the pressure." Affleck added, "When Jen and I broke up before, the catalyst for that was this massive amount of scrutiny around our private lives."

The couple first met on the set of "Gigli" in 2002, got engaged, and announced that they would get married in 2003. They ended up postponing the wedding and later broke up for good in January 2004.

Lopez revealed that the years after their breakup were tough.

"I didn't really feel like I had lost just the love of my life, but actually I lost, kind of, the best friend that I ever had. I couldn't talk for so many years, and that was the hardest part.

She would later marry singer Marc Anthony, with whom she shares two children, twins Max and Emme. After their divorce in 2014, she started dating former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. She was most recently romantically linked with Affleck in 2021.
