Jennifer Lopez Split from Ben Affleck Days Before Wedding Tough on J Lo

Jennifer Lopez split from Ben Affleck left the sexy singer and actress reeling, J Lo has revealed that she felt torn apart after they broke up.

The 'I Luh Ya Papi' hitmaker has spoken in her new book, 'True Love', about the devastation she experienced following her break up with 'Gone Girl' actor Ben, whom she split from in 2004 just days before they were to be married.

She wrote: ''It felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.''

Explaining her feelings during a talk about her memoir in New York last night (06.11.14), she said: ''I had breakups and things but I'd never felt heartbroken until we called off that wedding. It was devastating to me, maybe because it was so public.

''I really felt like I had found somebody great and he had found somebody great and we thought we could make it work.''

The 45-year-old beauty - who had previously been married to actor and producer Ojani Noa and actor and choreographer Cris Judd - went on to marry Marc Anthony just months after her split, but they too divorced this year.

And she's now opened up following the news that the father of her six-year-old twins - Max and Emme - has reportedly become engaged to 26-year-old model Shannon De Lima.

The New York Daily News newspaper reports her as saying: ''I'm happy for him.''

However, Jennifer insists she will remain single until she feels comfortable being on her own.

She added: ''You have to heal on your own and that's what I've been learning. You should be happy all by yourself. For so long we're taught there's a fairy tale that's supposed to happen but that's not how it goes ... Someone great will come along but I'll be whole first.''
