Marital life

Now let’s get some personal here, she had her share of difficulty finding true love but she never gave up. She married Ojani Noa in 1997 but sadly that didn’t work out and they had to get a divorce. According to the news sources Ojani appeared to have revealed a little too much information about him and Jenny’s relationship and she had to sue him.

Next In line (yes 2/3) is Chris Judd. She met Chris while filming her music video ‘’Love don’t cost a thing’’. At that time Chris was a backup dancer and well they kind of had a zing but hard luck, that didn’t work out either. By their defense, according to Jenifer, they didn’t have what it takes to make a marriage work.

Then she met her third husband in 2004 shortly after a split with her boyfriend Affleck. Mark Anthony is the father of Jenifer’s twins. They spent many years happily but they had to split due to some differences between them.

Jenny from the block and Corona Pandemic

Now the Queen is spending some quality time with her beautiful kids Emme and Maximilian in this lockdown. With the busy and uprising career in beauty, fashion, music, and film industry she couldn’t spare time for her family but thankfully this quarantine has helped her slow down to spend some time with her family.

She said that even though we provide everything to our kids if we cannot spare ourselves to them then we are definitely missing out on important stuff. Even if we think that things are going smoothly they aren’t and that’s what she realized during this pandemic. I think by stating this she speaks for every set of working parents that we have to spend quality time with our family.
