Jennifer Lopez candidly details in her new documentary the abuse she’s faced in past relationships.

“You have to hit rock bottom where you’re in situations so uncomfortable and so painful that you finally go, ‘I don’t want this anymore.’”

The “Let’s Get Loud” singer recalls a therapist once asking her how she’d treat an abusive situation if it were happening to her daughter.

“It was so clear. I’d tell her get the f–k out of here and never look back, but for me, it was so clouded and complicated,” Lopez explains. “It was like looking through fog.”

Filming the scene took an emotional toll on the “Selena” star, who acknowledged that she was never physically abused by one of her exes.

“Being thrown around and manhandled like that is not fun. I mean, I was never in a relationship where I got beat up, thank God,” she says, choosing not to identify anyone, “but I’ve definitely been manhandled and a couple of other unsavory things.

”Rough. Disrespectful.”

The “Waiting for Tonight” singer married on-again, off-again love Ben Affleck in Las Vegas in July 2022 and tied the knot a second time in an over-the-top ceremony in Georgia.

Given that their engagement fell apart the first time because of the media scrutiny, the pair have taken a more private approach to their marriage.

He admitted they had to learn to “compromise” between being totally private and sharing some of their romance on social media. Thecelebrityfinder/MEGA

“Getting back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a relationship on social media,’” Affleck said in “The Greatest Love Story Never Told.”

“Then I sort of realized it’s not a fair thing to ask. It’s sort of like, you’re gonna marry a boat captain and you go, ‘Well, I don’t like the water.’”

The “Air” star realized that both he and Lopez needed to “learn to compromise.”
