When Jennifer Lopez met Ben Affleck in early 2002, she was still married to her second husband, Cris Judd. The two met on the set of the movie Gigli, which was released in 2003.
Cris Judd was a dancer, choreographer, and actor. He was born on August 15, 1969, in Abilene, Texas. He began his career as a dancer in the early 1990s, performing in music videos for artists such as Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson. He later moved into choreography, working on the music videos for artists such as TLC, Jennifer Lopez, and Pink.
In 2001, Lopez and Judd married in a private ceremony in California. However, the marriage was short-lived, and the couple divorced in June 2002. During their marriage, Lopez and Judd collaborated on the music video for her song “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
In early 2002, Lopez and Affleck met on the set of Gigli. The two began a highly publicized relationship and were often referred to as “Bennifer.” They became engaged in November 2002 and planned to marry in September 2003. However, the wedding was called off just days before it was set to take place.
Lopez and Affleck eventually ended their relationship in January 2004. Since then, Lopez has gone on to marry singer Marc Anthony in 2004 and is currently engaged to former New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
Cris Judd has since moved on as well. He married Kelly Wolf in 2004 and the couple has two children together. He is currently a professional dancer and choreographer, and is a judge on the TV show “World of Dance.”
Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd’s marriage may have been short-lived, but it was a significant part of her life when she met Ben Affleck. Their relationship was a highly publicized one, and it was one of the most talked-about celebrity relationships of the early 2000s.
