J Lo feared being always single
Jennifer Lopez feared she would be "alone forever" after splitting from Marc Anthony. The 48-year-old singer and actress split from her third husband - the father of her nine-year-old twins Max and Emme - in July 2011.
The "hard time" motivated her to buy a house in the Hamptons so her kids would always want to come back to her.
Jennifer - who dated dancer Casper Smart for five years on and off after splitting from Marc and is now in a relationship with retired baseball ace Alex Rodriguez - told Britain's HELLO magazine: "I remember a certain point when I had my kids thinking 'I really want to get a house in the Hamptons so they can have a place they go in the summer, that we go to every summer'."
"There was something romantic about that to me. After I got divorced and it was a hard time, I said to myself, 'I'm gonna do that. I'm gonna be like that lady Diane Keaton in
Something's Gotta Give, just in case I never get married again and I stay alone forever.' Silly idea."
