Jennifer Lopez Responds to Leaked Video From Private Wedding Ceremony

Jennifer Lopez is finally speaking out about a secret video recorded at her and Ben Affleck’s wedding ceremony in Georgia, which was leaked to the public.

Back in July, Bennifer tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony in Las Vegas. Then this month, the couple said “I do” again in a more formal celebration in Georgia. Afterwards, TMZ shared a video where the singer dedicated a special song to her husband and sang it on the dance floor.

However, that particular video was filmed without the couple’s consent and was later sold to the media outlet. On Instagram, the Hustlers actress addressed the footage in a comment (reposted by fan account @jlow0rld) and wrote, “This was taken without permission. Period. And whoever did it took advantage of our private moment.” 

“I don’t know where you all are getting it from bc we had NDAs and asked everyone to not share anything from our wedding,” J.Lo continued. “That is our choice to share. Anything I put out private is OnTheJLO and it's to share w my fans. Which I will do when I am ready to. This was stolen without our consent and sold for money. Thank you for caring I love you guys.”

Lopez’s personal newsletter has become a place where she shares sneak peek clips and never-before-seen photos with fans before they become broadcast to the general public. In many ways, it’s an interactive and fun way for her to connect with her longtime fanbase on the internet.

Just last week, the Marry Me star posted a close-up snapshot of her wedding veil and teased her followers to visit OnTheJLo for more exclusive pics. “First peek at my wedding looks at OnTheJLo.com,” she wrote in the caption.

We certainly stand with Jennifer. Everyone deserves their privacy, and Hollywood celebrities are no different.
