Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez Previously Called Off Their Relationship Due To ‘Excessive Media Attention’
Although the power couple was previously engaged in 2002 – 20 years ago! – they called it quits before their 2003 wedding, citing “excessive media attention” surrounding their wedding.
“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date,” the couple said in a joint statement at the time. “When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry.”
The statement continued, “We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families, and our friends.”
After the two couldn’t make it work, they both went their separate ways. Eventually, they both went on to marry, and have children with, other people.
“The Last Duel” actor, 49, had three children with “The Adam Project” actress Jennifer Garner after tying the knot in 2005. They later called it quits in 2018.
