Most fans around the world are thrilled that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are getting back together. Plus, when they confirmed their love with a secret wedding in Las Vegas, no one spared words of praise and heartfelt emotion. However, a person does not have such positive feelings about his relationship and even thinks that it will not last long.
It is said that she also wrote poems about her great and endless love for her first husband
Jennifer Lopez had her fourth marriage to Ben Affleck. Her first husband was Ojani Noa, whom she married in 1997. Although the singer said shortly after the wedding in Las Vegas that she had finally married not only the man she loves dearly, but also her soul mate, and because of that she believes they last forever, according to her ex, that’s not entirely true. It seems to him that Jennifer constantly suffers from the same problem.
Jennifer just turned 53. You won’t believe the photos she took and showed off in Eve’s clothes in front of the world:
“I wish him and Ben all the best, but I’m not sure it’s going to last. Jen loves being in love, but has been engaged six times. Ben is husband number four. I was husband number one and she told me I was the love of her life. When we were lying in bed on our wedding night, she said we were going to be together forever,” Noa revealed to Dailymail.co.uk. He hinted that the same promises she made to him, she had certainly made them to Ben, so he thinks he can’t fulfill them in the same way as in the case of their marriage.

She can’t take it if someone gets in her way to fame
Ojani wanted a great career and the American dream, just like his first wife. When he moved from Cuba to America, he basically took any job that was offered to him. He worked as a car washer, later he entered a restaurant, where he rose through the ranks from dishwasher to waiter.
Besides that, he also did some modeling at least occasionally, which he wanted to break into. With Jennifer Lopez, he was united by great ambition. The singer is said to be angry if something stops her from becoming famous and is even more angry when someone tries to interfere with her being famous. Apparently, that’s also why she was impressed that she didn’t have to fear a similar threat from Ben, and she found great support in him.

She knew from the first meeting that he would be her man
Noa arrived in the United States on a large inflatable boat. As he said, it was a miracle that he survived this wild journey. When he got a job at a Cuban restaurant in Miami owned by Gloria Estefan, he finally started to do well. It is then that he meets his first fatal love. He met Jennifer at work when he waited on her one evening. However, the singer was so attracted to the handsome young man that she returned to the company the very next day and they started talking.
When he came by with a portion of fries, she told him it looked very good. Ojani put them on the table without a word and smiled at her. This is how their relationship was first established, which then turned more and more into a great romance and a fatal first love. Jennifer later revealed to her chosen one that she already knew after the first meeting that he would become her husband, and it came true.

She became a megastar during their marriage
By the time Ojani met Jennifer, she was already pretty famous. She had several successes and was currently filming a film with Jack Nicholson. However, he did not recognize her at all. He went on to describe life alongside her as feeling like “Mr. Cinderella” at times. It was during their marriage that she became a megastar and he reaped all the benefits that came with it.
However, their beautiful fairy tale did not last long, and in 1998 they completely ended the divorce proceedings. Nevertheless, they remained good friends and were in frequent contact for the next ten years. Despite his famous ex-wife, Ojani was unable to start a great career and is currently working as a personal trainer.
