“While I was married to Marc, he really helped me with my confidence, and he saw where I suffered. You’re a great singer. Don’t ever let anybody tell you you’re not a great singer.” She added, “And I respected him so much because I consider him one of the best singers of all time.”

“It actually repaired certain parts of our relationship that had been fractured from our marriage and our divorce and it made us friends again,” she said. “Because when we first started working together, it’s how we met… we met working. And so we remembered that, like, oh right, we connect on this level of music.”

Before she started dating Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer was married and divorced twice. “I was done blaming other people — he did this or he did that — and I said to myself, no, it’s you,” she recently explained to People. “Until I could really learn to be happy on my own and love myself, these relationships were never going to work out, no matter what. That was a big turning point for me,” Jen shared. And when she met Alex, she knew he was too good to let go of. “It wasn’t until I met Alex that I felt like, ‘Okay, I can be in a relationship again,’” Jen gushed. “Everything feels healthy and different. We bring something to each other’s lives that is profound, good, and healthy.”
