Ojani Noa February 1997 – January 1998

-

From February 1997 to January 1998, Lopez was married to Cuban waiter-turned-restaurate­ur Ojani Noa. Back then, Lopez wasn’t a household name just yet, but she already appeared in Money

Train opposite Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson, and Jack, which starred the late Robin Williams.

A month after Lopez married Noa, she hit the big time, when the critically acclaimed biopic

Selena was released. As Lopez’s career blossomed, their love didn’t.

While they broke up less than a year after they got married, their legal battle lasted over a decade. In 2007, Noa attempted to write a tell-all book about his marriage with Lopez. In 2009, he threatened to produce a film about his relationsh­ip with Lopez using photos and about 11 hours of footage of their time together. But Lopez took him to court. Last year, Noa’s business partner also threatened to release an alleged sex tape of the former couple made during their honeymoon. But the law is on Lopez’s side as all materials involving her need her permission to be published.
