Ojani Noa: What Jennifer Lopez's First Husband Is Doing Now

Jennifer Lopez has been married three times. First to Ojani Noa, then to Cris Judd, and then to Marc Anthony, with whom she shares her twins: Max and Emme. Lopez was gunning for a fourth wedding with Alex Rodriguez but news broke on March 12, 2021, that the two had called off their engagement and parted ways, per Us Weekly. Just a day later, sources told People that the couple was working on it, but as of this writing, their future is uncertain.

In a YouTube clip called It's My Party Tour, published on June 13, 2019, Lopez spoke about her wedding plans with Rodriguez and ended up talking about her other marriages. "I've been married three times, and once was nine months and once was 11 months, so I don't really count those. But I was married to Marc for 10 years, with the kids," Lopez said. "I was very young the first two times I tried to get married and I would say tried to get married," she said laughing. Lopez added in a moment of honesty that while her life seems full of people, it can actually be really lonely and so Lopez added, "so you always want somebody with you."

Well, that first somebody was Noa. He and Lopez were married from 1997 to 1998, according to a later story by Us Weekly. So what has he been doing since his high-profile marriage? We've got the scoop.
