Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot in an elaborate weekend of festivities on Affleck’s Georgia estate just over a week ago, and soon after a clip from the reception was posted on TMZ. In the video, J.Lo is serenading her new husband with an unknown song featuring her crooning that she “can’t get enough” of her man. Lopez is not pleased about the leaked footage, to say the least.
The 53-year-old pop star often shares details of her private life in her newsletter and did release some photos from the event, but she was not happy to see the clip from the ceremony everywhere.
In a comment that has been screenshot and circulated, she wrote that it was being used “without permission” and was leaked by someone “for money.”
“This was taken without our permission. Period. And whoever did it took advantage of our private moment,” Lopez wrote. “I don’t know where you all are getting it from bc we had ndas and asked everyone not share anything from our wedding. Anything I put out private is OnTheJLO and it’s ready to share with my fans. Which I will do when I am ready to.”
She added, “This was stolen without our consent and sold for money.”
Lopez then thanked fans for caring about the issue and even liked a fan post featuring her comment.
The Georgia-based ceremony was Affleck and Lopez’s second wedding after they were legally wed in Las Vegas in July during a surprise elopement. There were not many attendees at that event, but quite a large group at the reception. It was reported that Affleck got emotional during his speech to Lopez in front of the crowd there.
“Ben made an impassioned speech professing his love for Jennifer and her kids and said the children are the blessing and gift that happened because they didn’t get married before and that is proof that everything happens for a reason,” a source told Us Weekly.
