Jennifer Lopez has called off her wedding to Ben Affleck after a row with his best friend, Matt Damon. The Latino singer was furious when Matt tried to talk him out of it, claiming she was a “serial bride”.
J Lo, who cancelled plans to tie the knot on St Valentine’s Day, reportedly warned Ben “It’s me or him”.
She told friends “I always feel like there has been three of us in this relationship. He loves Matt loads and he treasures what Matt thinks a lot too.”

He also hates the way J Lo has made Ben look like a Latino in her music video.A source told the papers “This feud with Matt caused such bad feelings that Ben and Jennifer have decided not to go ahead with the wedding. They still love each other and want to get married someday, but the Valentine’s Day ceremony isn’t go to happen anytime soon.”
