Jennifer Lopez has had many relationships over the years, but her first boyfriend was her high school sweetheart, David Cruz. The two began dating when Jennifer was just 15 years old and continued their relationship well into her early 20s.
David and Jennifer attended the same high school in the Bronx, New York, and were together for almost a decade. During that time, they had a strong bond and were very much in love. Jennifer has said that she and David were “best friends” and that he “probably knows me better than anyone else.”
Although the couple eventually split up, they remained close friends. Jennifer has said that she still considers David a friend and that she “loves him to death.” She has also said that she learned a lot from their relationship and that it was a “very special time” in her life.
Jennifer has gone on to have a successful career in music, film, and television, but her first love will always be David Cruz. The two may no longer be together, but they will always have a special place in each other’s hearts.
