Jennifer Lopez was born on July 24, 1969 in New York into a Puerto Rican family. Father – David Lopez, worked as a computer technician on the night shift in an insurance company. Mother – Guadeloupe Rodriguez, was a housewife. Jennifer has two sisters – Leslie (opera singer, 1958) and Linda(Asmongold Girlfriend) (journalist, 1971).
Jennifer Lopez: “My older sister Leslie is a successful opera singer, and my younger sister Linda is a journalist and is also very respected in her field. She has all sorts of prestigious journalistic awards. Mom raised us well. Nobody smokes or drinks. We were never allowed to hang out in the street, we had to act like little ladies, learn good manners. And I am very glad that we were brought up like that. ”

Jennifer Lopez: “The breakup and divorce were very painful, it’s true. I even wrote a book – I felt so bad that I had to do something completely unusual for me in order to express and at the same time drown out my pain. This divorce, damn it, turned out to be the most difficult of all the trials that fell to my lot. ”
In 2014, after almost 2.5 years of relationship, Jennifer broke up with her boyfriend Kasper Smart, whom she had been dating since the fall of 2011.

Unsuccessfully trying to deal with them, Lopez and Smart decided to part ways.
Jennifer Lopez: “Before, I always believed that a girl should get married once and for all. But, unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way for me. I still believe in love, but the tales of marriage have long been out of my head. I cannot live without a man. But a serious relationship is so difficult. ”
