Jennifer Lopez doesn’t ‘really count’ her first two marriages to Cris Judd & Ojani Noa

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are all smiles as they arrive to the 2019 CFDA Awards in NYC

We’ve heard different things about Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriquez’s wedding plans. Sometimes, it sounds like it will be a huge production worthy of the corporate merger that this marriage will represent. Other times, their wedding planning sounds nonexistent, or like they might just do a small family thing. I’ve been wondering for a few months now if Jennifer and Alex are even going to make it down the aisle, honestly. Well, Jennifer just posted a “behind the scenes” video of the preparations for her new tour, and she talks about the wedding planning. Keep in mind, this video was shot in March.

Around the 2:10-minute mark, Jennifer is talking to a friend about the wedding planning and she says:

“Now it’s been three years now… [We’ll get married] soon, not soon-soon but next year. I’d like a big wedding, I’d like to get married in a church this time. Never been married in a church. I’ve been married three times: once was nine months and once was 11 months. So I don’t really count those. I was married to Marc for 10 years with the kids. I was very young the first two times I tried to get married. I’m saying tried to get married….It seems like in this life you’re always surrounded by people so you’re never lonely but it’s very lonely. So you always want somebody with you. So I felt like if I got married then I would always have somebody but that’s not how life works. That’s not how it goes, a bad reason to get married. Not the right one, the wrong one…The right one is when you find somebody who makes you better.”

I like that Jennifer might be a pioneer in some way: marriages that don’t even last a year DO NOT COUNT. That’s the trend. It’s a new thing. Thus, her first two marriages don’t count. And I love that she’s trying to play those two marriages (to Cris Judd and Ojani Noa) as, like, youthful dumb mistakes. She was about 28 during her marriage to Ojani and she was 32 when she married Cris! She was old enough to know better FOR SURE with Cris. Ojani was more of a youthful “I did it because I was lonely” mistake. Also: I need “I don’t really count those” to become a thing. I had three Frappes today but I don’t really count those, so it’s all good. I slept with a beardy hipster but I don’t really count those, so it’s fine.

Speaking of trends, apparently A-Rod is apparently selling some pieces of his art collection. Bloomberg reports that Alex is putting up two of his art pieces by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Richard Prince up for auction. The reason is that A-Rod and J-Lo are reportedly “committed as a couple to collect together. So he’s making some changes.” Um… what does that even mean? He has to sell some highly valued pieces so that he and Jennifer can collect together? I guess it means Jennifer doesn’t like Basquiat.

    If I don’t really count the first two biscuits I ate today, does that mean I can have another one and claim I just ate one?

    • Tiffany says:

      Yes Sarah, yes you can.

    • Seraphina says:

      I love it, new math. I don’t count the small
      Portion of chips I’m eating. But I may add another imaginary lap around the block that I will walk

    • Raina says:

      If I could stop counting certain guys, I’d not only still be a virgin but my kid would be a miracle birth.

      Eh. I don’t know how great she treated them either.

      • Jujumanji says:

        That’s my thought exactly. My daughter was immaculately conceived and I’m still a virgin.

        Jennifer that statement was so ignorant and disrespectful to the men you married and promised 4ever to. Never had a church wedding… good luck with that. You got 3 under your belt, good luck getting the Catholic church to recognize this 4th. Smdh

  2. Jaded says:

    I’m sure her first 2 husbands are really pleased that she’s written them off as “not really husbands”. She’s an idiot.

    • Tiffany says:

      I think Jennifer is still salty that she had to pay out Cris and her father in law was not happy at all (and spoke to the media) with how their separation and divorce went down and yep, he put some of the blame in Batfleck’s lap as well. He wasn’t gonna let his son’s reputation get destroyed because two people in lust met on a movie that never should have been made.

      Ojani was just a huge douchecanoe after the fact and deserves that scorn.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Ojani has been trying to make a buck for decades selling old videos, he’s scum, I wouldn’t count him either.

  3. Andrea says:

    Juts be Elizabeth Taylor and own it. A-Rod won’t be your last husband either. So will he no longer count later on?

    • Mia4s says:

      See that’s the spirit, emulate La Liz! 😂

      It seems that Richard Burton was the love of Liz’s life and he was husband number five! Jennifer’s only on number 4. So really, wait and count the next one JLo! 😉

      • Andrea says:

        Yes, I agree!! This is just the cheater husband J-lo. You got a better man waiting for you after this one. ha

  4. Jb says:

    And all the women Alex bangs on the side don’t count cause she never actually sees them banging sooo he’s technically “faithful” to her. And technically she hasn’t had work done because insert it doesn’t count logic here…the denial is strong with this one.

  5. Liz version 700 says:

    This is obnoxious, but I too have a few relationship I would love not to count! LOL

  6. 2lazy4username says:

    I wonder if Cris and Ojani know they’ve never been married to Jennifer Lopez?
    *eye roll*

  7. minx says:

    They count, JLo.

  8. DiegoInSF says:

    I totally get her perspective, it’s her prerogative not to count the marriages she wasn’t happy in.
    I saw her in concert on Thursday and she was just so incredible, she’s so full of energy, she performed for two hours. I stan a queen! I also saw ARod in the audience and he didn’t take his eyes off her. It was sweet.

  9. ElleKaye says:

    She has the thought process of a child.

  10. Snowslow says:

    How does A-Rod feel about being discounted in the near future as “not having happened” lol?

  11. Clare says:

    Eh, just another example of someone in a position of power abdicating responsibility for their actions.

    This is the same as when people rattle on about ‘my truth’. Jesus. Just own your decisions you fool.

    All the while befitting those who have less wealth and social capital than her (the two ex husbands). I wonder if Casper Bear would have counted had she married him?

  12. Yes Doubtful says:

    Eek…I think it would be nicer to just admit that her first two marriages were mistakes rather than say they “don’t count”.

  13. whatWHAT? says:

    “It seems like in this life you’re always surrounded by people so you’re never lonely but it’s very lonely. So you always want somebody with you. So I felt like if I got married then I would always have somebody but that’s not how life works.”

    so, this is interesting. she pretty much admits what people have said about her for years…that she can’t be alone and always has to have a bf/husband. but, she ALSO admits that “that’s not how life works”…maybe, just MAYBE, she’s maturing and has realized that she doesn’t have to be WITH someone, all the time?…

    I hope she comes to her senses and realizes she can do a LOT better than A-Roid.

  14. Bella Bella says:

    I hate Richard Prince’s work so I’m glad A-Rod is getting rid of it.

  15. Jan says:

    I don-/ care for what arod has convinced her to do to her body. He prefers no body fat, super muscular and he gets all his woman to fit that image. I find him creepy and gross. However I think they work together.
