Cris Judd says being married to Jennifer Lopez was a�?tougha��a�� because their relationship got so much attention.
Choreographer Cris Judd – who married the 45-year-old superstar in 2001 after a month-long engagement – admits he struggled with all the attention their two-year union and things only got easier when he learned to a�?embracea��a�� the scrutiny. He told Us Weekly magazine: a�?You know ita��s very tough. Your privacy is breached. Youa��re no longer a normal person.
a�?Our wedding was a circus. I think several people got arrested trying to climb up a mountain . . . trying to sneak in. We actually rented the airspace. a�?It was tough to be in that limelight. But you kind of sign up for that, you know? You kind of have to take it and accept it and embrace it. Once you stop fighting it, it smooths itself over. If you try to keep that privacy, it drives you nuts and thata��s why people break.a��a�� However, while he was a�?bothereda��a�� by the attention, Cris insists it wasna��t being in the public eye that ended their marriage. He added: a�?It had no bearing on the outcome of a relationship. Unfortunately, it just didna��t work out.a��a��
And the dancer believes the On the Floor hitmakera��s subsequent relationships – including an engagement to Ben Affleck, marriage to Marc Anthony and a romance with Casper Smart – havena��t worked out because she doesna��t a�?worka��a�� enough on them. He added: a�?She looks fantastic, that goes without a doubt. Anybody that would say she doesna��t look great is lying. a�?But you know, I cana��t give you the answer as to why her relationships dona��t work.
a�?I think that ita��s that it is work. Ita��s whether you want to work on it or not. Everyone has baggage and problems. Ita��s whether you want to deal with those problems. When you sign up to get married, you cana��t just walk away. I mean Ia��m remarried and wea��re going on five years. My wife Kelly and I have a daughter.a��a�� – Sowetan
