Jennifer Lopez's romantic life has been a road filled with rocky passages and sharp turns. 

The 51-year-old actress and musician looked like she'd finally found Mr. Right when she showed off the enormous ring given to her by fiancé Alex Rodriguez in 2019.

The nuptials to the 45-year-old New York Yankee was set to be her fourth marriage, following a string of high-profile relationships.

Following stints on the CBS crime drama Second Chances and its spin-off Hotel Malibu in the mid-1990s, J-Lo shot to fame with her star-making turns in Selena and the jungle thriller Anaconda, both in 1997.

The Jenny From The Block singer was married to Cuban waiter and occasional actor Ojani Noa for a short period from February 1997 to January 1998.

Though the marriage was brief, it resulted in multiple tasteless legal challenges for the aspiring actress.

Following their divorce, Noa worked for Jennifer for six months managing her LA-based Cuban restaurant, Madre's.

After being fired from the position, he sued for breech of contract and threatened to release both a nude tape of his ex-wife and a tell-all book painting her as a perverted sex fiend.

'There is revealing video of Jennifer with a lack of clothing and in sexual situations, especially in the hotel footage from the honeymoon,' said Ed Meyer, an associate of Noa's, while the tape was on the market. 

'The videos contain salacious material and are going to shock her fans.'

After a six-year legal battle, the star was able to block the release of the tape and the tell-all from the 'gold-digging' ex. 

High profile: While preparing the release of her debut album, On The 6, Jennifer sparked up a relationship with one of its producers, Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs, 51 (pictured in 2000)

While preparing the release of her debut album, On The 6, Jennifer sparked up a relationship with one of its producers, Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs, 51.

The record spawned the number one hit If You Had My Love and established her as a singer to be reckoned with.

Jennifer became an alluring palette for designers during their relationship, and she debuted her most famous outfit during the Grammy Awards ceremony. 

The green silk chiffon dress from Versace was super low-cut, extending below her navel and barely covering her cleavage. 

Legal scare: The two were charged with criminal possession of a weapon in 1999, though the charges were later dropped against her as she was determined to be uninvolved (pictured in 1999)

Once again, though, Jennifer found herself embroiled in legal issues, this time far more serious.

On December 27, 1999, Jennifer and Sean were arrested following a shooting outside the Times Square Club in Manhattan.

The two were charged with criminal possession of a weapon, though the charges were later dropped against her as she was determined to be uninvolved.

Jennifer broke up with the rap mogul a month before his trial was slated to begin in 2001. He was ultimately acquitted on all charges. 

Short-lived marriage: In late 2000, she met Chris Judd, 51, a dancer and songwriter, when he directed her Love Don't Cost A Thing music video. The two were quickly inseparable, and married on September 29, 2001. By June of 2002 they had split, and the divorce was finalized in 2003 (pictured in 2001)
