Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck called off their first wedding four days before the ceremony. 

The celebrity couple, who tied the knot in Las Vegas this weekend, was set to get married in 2003 after getting together two years before.

However, the day was cancelled and it was put down to details of the ceremony getting leaked from the press.

A statement at the time read: “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.

“We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoilt for us, our families and our friends.”

An insider reportedly claimed that the ‘On The Floor’ singer was ‘hysterically crying’ over the ordeal.

Four months later, the couple confirmed they had broken up and Lopez described it as her ‘first real heartbreak’.

However, Page Six went on to report that the couple split due to their future plans not aligning.

A source reportedly told the news outlet: “As hot and heavy as their relationship was, they were on very different paths at the end of it.

“Jennifer was ready to settle down and have kids, but Ben wasn’t keen on giving up his bachelor lifestyle just yet. In the end, she got tired of waiting for him to come around — even though it broke her heart to end things.”

A year after the pair split up, Affleck married 13 Going On 30 star Jennifer Garner. They went on to have three kids together before separating in 2015.

In 2004, Lopez got hitched to Marc Anthony and in 2008, they welcomed twins to the world. In 2011, the pair broke up and three years later, they divorced.
