Jennifer Lopez blames fame for split from Ben

Friday April 30, 2010

At the time they were one of Tinseltown's power couples.

But the pressure of their highly publicised romance proved too much for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, dubbed 'Bennifer' by the press.

Brunette beauty Jennifer, who has been busy promoting her new film The Back-up Plan, has revealed that during her two-year relationship with the handsome actor, the couple felt "under siege".

Speaking to Graham Norton, the mum-of-two – who called off her engagement to Ben in 2004 – said she still holds great affection for her former fiancé.

But she says she enjoys husband Marc Anthony's "different approach to fame", which allows privacy.

Ben is now married to Jennifer Garner, with whom he has two daughters, Violet and Seraphina, while Jennifer and Marc are parents to fraternal twins, Emme and Max.
