JENNIFER LOPEZ was so jealous during her marriage to CRIS JUDD, she once exploded with rage when she caught him talking to veteran British pop-star-turned-TV presenter CILLA BLACK.
The incident happened at the Royal Variety Performance in London in 2001, early in Lopez and Judd's doomed marriage - when he was 31 and one-time Sixties starlet Black was 58-years-old.
Now 65, Black reveals, "I'd met Cris before, and when he saw me backstage at the show, he came over for a flirt. J.Lo saw us and started fuming.
She was screaming to her entourage, 'What's that woman doing with my man? Get rid of her! It was so funny."
After her 10-month marriage to dancer Judd failed, Lopez dated Ben Affleck before making singer Marc Anthony her third husband in 2004.

Jennifer Lopez trying to make one more baby with Marc

Jennifer Lopez is "trying to make one more baby" with husband Marc Anthony.

The 39-year-old actress - who welcomed her first children, twins Max and Emme, into the world in February - is said to be desperately trying to conceive again.

A source close to the couple told In Touch Weekly magazine: "They were advised to wait six months after she gave birth. They listened to their doctor's advice, but now they're trying to make one more baby.

"Jennifer can't believe how much she loves motherhood. Of course, she always knew she wanted to be a mom one day, but she wasn't quite prepared for the overwhelming joy these children have given her or how it's really cemented her relationship with Marc. She would love a full house!"

Jennifer recently revealed becoming a mother had altered her "whole perspective on life".

She said: "It has changed me very much. It really prioritised what you thought was important and what was not so important.

"But it's great because it makes you very focused on the things in your life that you need to concentrate on. It makes it very simple. Teething and crawling and sitting up - amazing."
