UPDATE: Jennifer Lopez has reacted to her manager's comments about her, telling Access Hollywood: “I know Benny and he’s my best friend, my creative soul mate. I know the way he says things, and I know he would never say anything that would be hurtful to me in any way. Things can be taken out of context…. You have to be aware of what can be misconstrued.”
Jennifer Lopez's manager has some harsh words for the "American Idol" judge in the April issue of Vogue. In an interview with the magazine, Benny Medina, godfather of Lopez's twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony, talks openly about J. Lo's love life and the long string of men she's dated.
To quickly summarize, that list includes high-profile figures like Sean "Diddy" Combs, Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey and a one-year marriage to choreographer Cris Judd. In July 2011, Lopez and Anthony split after seven years of marriage (but have remained publicly amicable). Shortly thereafter, Lopez was spotted pashing with 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart, her newest beau, whom she took to this year's schmoozy Vanity Fair Oscar party.
But Medina thinks it's time Lopez, 42, took a break. "The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone, instead of having obsessive guys pursue her," he said.
He continued: "She’s not oblivious to her own reality right now, as in, 'Damn, I’m 42 with a 24-year-old. Why?' ... We talked about it yesterday. She was just like, 'It’s not even the age, Benny. It’s that I just came out of a relationship where I felt like I was kind of not getting what I needed. And I’m open! So somebody who steps in right now and is actually touching me in a way.' It’s very fertile ground."
