Affleck popped the question to Lopez in 2002 with a stunning pink diamond engagement ring.
But the pair postponed their nuptials days before the wedding in 2003, saying in a statement, “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.”
“When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry,” the statement went on to say. “We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.”
In January 2004 they officially called things off.
It will be the fourth marriage for Lopez, 52, and the second for Affleck, 49.
She was previously married to actor Ojani Noa, dancer Cris Judd and singer Marc Anthony, with whom she shares 14-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner and they are the parents of Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
