In an at-home video hangout with Dua Lipa and Charli XCX on April 20, Jennifer Lopez talked about the six-carat diamond engagement ring that she received from Ben Affleck in 2002, admitting that she “loved getting it.”
The conversation arose after Apple Music host Zane Lowe asked all three artists about their quarantine. Lopez, who got engaged to Alex Rodriguez on March 9, 2019, mentioned that she’s watching movies with her kids and introducing them to musicals, such as the 1968 Funny Girl starring Barbra Streisand.
“I met her [Streisand] at an Oscar party, years ago, and I was at the time engaged to Ben Affleck, and she’s really into diamonds, which I didn’t know,” Lopez recalled. “He had given me a pink diamond, which got a lot of press and was whatever. I loved getting it, don’t get me wrong. So, she came up to me, and like, she’s heard of it. I’m like, ‘Oh My God.’ And she’s like, ‘Can I see your ring?’ And she asked me about the ring, but then she asked me – and I thought it was so strange – about being famous, and how I handle it.”
