Her breakup was just confirmed earlier this month, but Jennifer Lopez says she’s actually been single for quite some time! During an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show airing Thursday, the singer admitted, “Yes. I’m single right now. I have been for a couple of months.” Interesting…considering she attended the Billboard Music Awards with ex Casper Smart in may.
Unfortunately, she didn’t discuss the split in much detail, but when it came to her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, who she separated from in July 2011, the 44-year-old didn’t hold anything back. “Marc and I love each other and we always will be the best of friends and we support each other 100%,” she gushed. “We’re in it with those kids together to make sure they turn out the right way. We do what we’re supposed to do. That’s always going to be our relationship, I think.” Together, J.Lo and Marc are parents to twins Max and Emme.
During the interview, host Wendy Williams commented on the fact that the American Idol judge has dated many different types of men — from younger to older and black to latino. “I don’t look at the outside so much,” Jen explained. “I’m not an outside-cover person. I’m more of the, like, essence of a person. Their soul, the feeling you get from a person.”
Before the interview came to an end, the “I Luh Ya Papi” shared that she and fellow American Idol judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. had all been asked back for Season 14, but are currently trying to work out scheduling to see if they’ll actually be able to return.
