If one thing’s for certain, it’s that J.Lo just gets better with time.
The 45-year-old mom to adorable twins Emme and Max has had no problem juggling all of the different hats she wears in life – after all, she is still a multi-million dollar singer and an American Idol judge, on top of being a mom. And somehow, she found a way to write a book with her busy schedule.
In the upcoming True Love, Jenny from the block dishes on the moment she knew she couldn’t stay married to Marc Anthony any longer, dealing with abusive relationships, and more.
Here are a couple of tell-all excerpts, courtesy of Gossip Cop:
On Abusive Relationships:
She writes, “I’ve never gotten a black eye or busted lip, but I have been in relationships where I felt abused one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally.” Lopez goes on, “I know what it feels like for your soul to be diminished by the way your loved one is treating you.”
Reflecting on bad relationships and standing up for one’s self, the singer says, “Every day that you don’t walk out that door, every day you accept things in your partner and in yourself, is a day that you’re saying it’s okay.” Lopez, of course, has had her fair share of bad romances.
On Divorcing Marc Anthony:
“Anybody looking from the outside in would have thought my life was great,” writes Lopez. “I had a husband and two beautiful children. I was on ‘American Idol’ and my new single ‘On the Floor’ had gone to number one all over the world.” She says, however, “What people didn’t know was that life really wasn’t that good. My relationship was falling apart and I was terrified.”
Lopez even candidly shares exactly when she decided the marriage was over. She recalls, “It was one of those moments when you’re so scared you can’t even scream. In a blur of fear and panic, I looked at [manager Benny Medina] and my mother and blurted out the words: ‘I don’t think I can be with Marc anymore.’ Then I burst into tears.”
True Love is definitely sounding like a must-read. It’s set to hit shelves on November 4th, so be sure to pick up your copy then. In the meantime, also check out some photos of J.Lo working it on set for American Idol above.
