Jennifer Lopez Has Been 'Mentally, Emotionally, Verbally' Abused in Past Relationships

Jennifer Lopez Has Been 'Mentally, Emotionally, Verbally' Abused in Past Relationships

Jennifer Lopez struts her stuff looking as gorgeous as always as she arrives for more American Idol Hollywood auditions on Wednesday (October 29) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old entertainer was joined by fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr.

Jennifer is opening up about past abuse in her book “True Love.”

“I’ve never gotten a black eye or a busted lip, but I’ve felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally,” Jennifer wrote.

“Every day that you don’t walk out that door, every day you accept things in your partner and in yourself, is a day that you’re saying it’s okay,” Jennifer added. She told People, “I had to learn to take care of myself and know my worth. When things are not working out, and you’re not being treated in a way that you want to be treated, you have to look at that because it’s nobody’s fault but yours. You have to take control and you have to set up your own boundaries. You have the power to change it.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Naeem Kahn shirt, alice & olivia pants, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Melinda Maria jewels. Keith is wearing Levi‘s Jeans.

    “It’s nobody’s fault but yourself”? That’s so messed up.. it is NOT your fault if you are abused and you should never feel that way. The only one at fault is the abuser and you shouldn’t be shamed for staying in an abusive relationship–it’s a very difficult, scary and complicated situation. While it’s not a good or healthy thing to stay in one, it is the abuser’s fault and people should be encouraged to speak out and leave the relationship (like Jennifer said) without being shamed or treated like they are pathetic or perpetuating abuse if they stay.

    oy! Those are very heavy allegations! Why don’t you name them?

  • happy666

    Don’t take her so seriously. She has never had personality!!

  • Lisa

    Dont even take her seriously. She says things if she needs attention. This is the same woman that says she was at one point homeless cause her mom kicked her out and she needed to sleep at the studios or a friend’s house. Please dont take her seriously.

  • happy666

    Of course not. She loves being humilliated. And her father paid Selena’s director to be her on the show.

  • ashknewit

    Puff Daddy and the father of her children; can’t remember his name.

  • Zoee

    I do think BEN AFFLECK abuse her , he is such an arrogant men and he did not treat her well

  • happy666

    I dont know how she even dares to talk about her family in interviews or post pics with them! EWW

    Please share my experience with domestic financial abuse so that others
    know they are not alone in feeling isolated and worthless. http://ownyourworth.wordpress.com #ownyourworth

    If you are looking for a down to earth, realistic and honest view of JLO, don’t bother to get this book. I am sure it will be no better than her interviews where she a great mother to her kids, faithful girlfriend, faithful wife, and anything negative in her perfect world is always someone else’s fault. “True Love”, year right!, yet this woman hopped from man to man without letting her bed sheets cool off, and has the nerve to say SHE was mentally abused. Lol!!

  • Brian

    That called ‘selling my family’ sadly a lot are doing it…

  • Brian

    mhm…

  • She Stinks!

    Now she’s a victim? I guess being a classless no talent tacky old HO hasn’t been working, so now she’s trying to play the pity card. This b i t ch is so fake! Sit down JHO!

  • karina

    of course not!Ben treated her like a queen.She wouldn’t still miss him if he was abusive.It was her cocaine addicted ex-husband that abused her because he was so jealous and controlling

  • Zoee

    Ii believe that JLO has mention that Ben has been the only person who really broke her heart, I believe that Ben has been the only men she really was deeply in love all the drama around Bennifer and the breaking up process was really hard, and i don’t see how ben cheating on her is treating her like a queen

    I remember reading somewhere that first ben dumped her the day before the wedding to go to a stripping club, then they gave it another chance, then she dumped him. I do think they were a bad match from day one, cause they are both very into their own career, it would never have worked out. He probably did emotionally abuse her, he seems to be an arrogant man and everything is about him. Good for her that she is taking time for herself, but lol at every hollywood celebrities who always has to write ab learning to love, like the saying, u gotta love urself first lol isn’t new. whatever makes money, put it in writing lol
