Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez recently accused a wedding attendee who sold a video of her serenading her husband, Ben Affleck, of taking advantage of their private moment. The newly married couple had a guest list of just over 100 people in the wedding conducted at Affleck’s Georgia home.
In the video, Lopez was in her wedding dress, performing the song she wrote for her husband, along with some backup dancers and singers. During the performance, the actor was given a front-row seat and joined in the singing at one point.
According to the artist, the guests were required to sign NDAs to attend the ceremony and asked not to post clips of it on social media. Lopez added that the video was stolen and asked social media pages to take it down because she would share it on her blog when she was ready.

Jennifer Lopez Said The Video Was Unauthorized
In response to the recent online clip, which showed Lopez serenading her new husband on their wedding day, the actress claimed the video was taken without permission and sold to TMZ. The 52-year-old said the wedding attendee who took the video took advantage of the couple’s private moment.
Lopez made the statements in the comment section of her fan page, @jlow0rld, and asked that the video not be circulated anymore. She also revealed that there were NDAs involved, and she asked the guests not to share anything from the wedding.
She wrote, “This was taken without permission. Period. And whoever did it took advantage of our private moment. I don’t know where you all are getting it from bc we had NDAs and asked everyone to not share anything from our wedding. That is our choice to share.”
Jennifer Lopez Said The Content Was Stolen
The actress added that most of the private moments she felt comfortable sharing were posted on her blog, “OnTheJLO.” Lopez revealed the wedding details would reportedly follow suit when she felt ready.
She wrote, “Anything I put out private is OnTheJLO, and it’s to share w my fans. Which I will do when I am ready to. This was stolen without our consent and sold for money. Thank you for caring. I love you guys.”
The fan page, on their end, honored the 53-year-old’s request and took down the video from the account. They wrote, “We love you, Jennifer, and we hope you quickly find the guy who sold this material to TMZ. I’m posting Jennifer’s comment under a deleted post; please share it.”
Jennifer Lopez Serenaded Ben Affleck
In the video circulated earlier, Lopez was seen on her wedding day with her backup dancers and singers in tow, performing a song she wrote, especially for the occasion. Affleck had a front seat for the entire performance and, at a point, sang along with Lopez when the microphone was pointed at him.
The song included “I can’t get enough of you” in a line in the chorus. Other lines in the love song were, “I can feel the passion in your eyes/I’m still in love with you/ You know I can’t get enough/ You know I can’t get enough.”
The duo started dating first in July 2002, and by the end of the year, they were engaged. As a result of heightened public interest, they moved their 2003 wedding and eventually split up. Lopez and Affleck got back together in 2021 and got engaged early this year.
The Wedding Took Place At Ben Affleck’s Georgia Home
The couple tied the knot on August 20 in front of around 135 guests. The wedding was reportedly held in Affleck’s 87-acre wide home in Georgia, which cost $8.9 million at the time of purchase. The couple prepared the ceremony after they privately tied the knot in Las Vegas in July.
The wedding was conducted on the lawn at the back of the property and was officiated by Jay Shetty. The guests wore white attires and were treated to a traditional Southern-inspired, family-style dinner the next day.
According to People Magazine, an insider revealed that the property held meaning to Affleck because the actor bought it around the same time the duo was together twenty years ago. They said, “Ben bought the property 20 years ago when they were engaged first time around. They have a special connection there, and his 50th birthday was last week, so it made sense to do it there and then.”
