JENNIFER Lopez and Ben Affleck made headlines when they abruptly called off their 2003 wedding, just three days before they were scheduled to say their vows. In Lopez’s latest documentary, titled The Greatest Love Story Never Told, the singer and her now-husband reflect on the events leading up to their canceled nuptials.

Lopez candidly reveals to a group of individuals, “Ben and I, we 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 echoes her sentiments, acknowledging, “When Jen and I broke up before, the catalyst for that was the massive amount of scrutiny around our private life.”

The documentary follows the creation of Lopez’s musical project, This Is Me… Now, directed by Dave Meyers. Meyers, who directed Lopez’s I’m Real music video in 2001, reflects on the aftermath of their breakup, describing it as “catastrophic to her constitution.” He notes that the pressure and scrutiny surrounding their relationship took a toll on Lopez’s perception of love.

Lopez shares her inner struggles, expressing, “For all those years it was really hard because I didn’t just feel like I lost the love of my life, I felt like I lost the best friend that I ever had.” She reveals the difficulty of not being able to discuss her emotions for many years.

In a poignant onscreen conversation, Affleck acknowledges their split as the turning point in Lopez’s life. He seeks forgiveness and understanding from her, to which she responds with a smile. Lopez later delves into the complexity of forgiveness, admitting that while she has forgiven him, she still needs to forgive herself.

The documentary highlights their journey of reconciliation, as they rekindled their romance in 2021. Through their story, depicted through music in This Is Me… Now, Lopez aims to inspire others to believe in the resilience of love.

Reflecting on her experiences, Lopez shares, “I feel like I came out the other side. I’ve made it through. I’ve made something good of my life. I’m proud of that.” She embraces the idea that imperfections and scars are beautiful reminders of one’s journey.
