Actress and singer

Jennifer Lopez

recalled how she broke up with actor

Ben Affleck

17 years ago .

The celebrity admitted that the breakup was not easy for her.

The artist admitted that she did not even want to live then, because she considered it the greatest sorrow in her life.

But, despite the breakup, Affleck supported his ex and promised that he would always be there.

"When we called off our wedding 18 years ago, it was the biggest heartbreak of my life. I honestly thought I was going to die," Lopez shared in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music One.

After breaking up with Affleck, all these years Jennifer tried to find her happiness.

The singer had no idea that she would be with Ben again, and later - she would marry him.

So, now the lovers appreciate each other and understand that their "second chance" did not happen just like that.

"It's not at all what it was many years ago. We appreciate each other more. To get a second chance - to be next to a loved one - is a rare opportunity, and we do not take it for granted," commented Lopez.

It will be recalled that Jennifer recently explained what the

mysterious inscription on the ring

that Ben gave her meant.

It turns out that this is a mysterious message addressed to the performer.
