We're surprised he's even ALLOWED to speak so candidly about this!
Remember back in 2001 when Jennifer Lopez was briefly married to her backup dancer?
Ya know, Cris Judd? The one she had a month-long engagement to? The same one she eventually divorced for Ben Affleck?
Well, Cris opened up about what his life turned into after he married Jenny from the Block and it sounds like it was quite a shock for him!
'You know it's very tough. Your privacy is breached. You're no longer a normal person. [Our wedding] was a circus. I think several people got arrested trying to climb up a mountain… trying to sneak in. We actually rented the airspace.
[It's] tough to be in that limelight. You kind of sign up for that, you know? You kind of have to take it and accept it and embrace it. Once you stop fighting it, it smoothes itself over. If you try to keep that privacy, it drives you nuts and that's why people break.'
Ugh! That actually sounds kind of terrible! Especially when it was something he was NOT used to at ALL!
However, he does want the world to know that that was NOT what caused their breakup.
'[But] it had no bearing on the outcome of [the] relationship. Unfortunately, it just didn't work out.'
Well, at least he got that into the open!
However, even though they DID breakup and he got upgraded for BAffleck, Cris has no hard feelings towards J.Lo!
Plus, Cris was asked why he believes Jen's relationships don't work out and he didn't really have an answer. But he DID have a theory that puts the blame on her.
'She looks fantastic, that goes without a doubt. Anybody that would say she doesn't look great is lying. But you know, I can't give you the answer as to why her relationships don't work. I think that it's that it is work. It's whether you want to work on it or not.
Everyone has baggage and problems. It's whether you want to deal with those problems. When you sign up to get married, you can't just walk away. I mean I'm remarried and we're going on five years.'
However, from what we've seen of J.Lo, she's a workaholic. So we don't exactly think a little work in a relationship would scare her off.
But ya never know!
