Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to relationships. From Sean “Diddy” Combs to Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony to Casper Smart (and everyone in between), the 42-year-old international star is a sucker for love.
As we look on in confusion,Â longtime manager and business partner Benny MedinaÂ expresses his concerns thatÂ LopezÂ is not capable of maintaining “a real meaningful relationship.”
â€œThe thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone, instead of having obsessive guys pursue her,â€ he said in the April issue of Vogue.
â€œThe ease with which that obsession becomes a relationship I think sometimes works against her ability to have a real meaningful relationship. And she never half does anything. When she commits to anything in her work, her life, or her relationships, she is in it.â€
After three failed marriages, Medina says Lopez is not blind to her current situation.
Â â€œSheâ€™s not oblivious to her own reality right now, as in, â€˜Damn, Iâ€™m 42 with a 24-year-old. Why?â€™ We talked about it yesterday. She was just like, â€˜Itâ€™s not even the age, Benny. Itâ€™s actually that I just came out of a relationship where I felt like I was kind of not getting what I needed. And Iâ€™m open! So somebody who steps in right now and is actually touching me in a way â€” itâ€™s very fertile ground!â€™â€
Lopez was married to Anthony for over seven years, but the couple split in July 2011. She gave birth to their twins in 2008.
