Jennifer Lopez Admits Being Devastated After Divorce from Marc Antony

Jennifer Lopez admits being devastated after her divorce from Marc Antony.
In front of the cameras Jennifer Lopez appeared to deal with the breakdown of her marriage rather well, but behind closed doors it was a very different story.

"I was going through a divorce and the breakup of a family, which was devastating to me because family means everything to me," Jennifer told Hollywood Life recently.

"I didn't want to be the woman who stayed in bed for months. I did do that a little, but I knew I had to get through it."

"I had to turn the breakup into something better," she explained.

"I thought, 'I don't want to just survive it, I want to come out better.' "I had to figure out what I did wrong that I was in a relationship where I was accepting situations that weren't good for me. If you're allowing yourself to be in a bad relationship, you need to understand why," she explained.

In the end, it was Jennifer's hit single 'Dance Again' that perhaps brought her back to life after she begged Enrique Iglesias to let her have the song.

"I told him, 'That's my song' and finally, he gave in. 'Dance Again' became my anthem... an expression of what I needed to do at that time in my life and for what I was taking on with my career. It was a beautiful metaphor that became my reality."
