JLo on Marc Antony split: 'It hurt so much, but I didn't want it to finish me'

'On The Floor' superstar Jennifer Lopez has revealed that her split from husband Marc Anthony (pictured left) was 'devastating', but she didn't want it to define or ruin her so found inner strength in order to cope. 

During a new interview with Glamour magazine, the beauty explained that divorcing Anthony broke her heart, but the thoughts of her twins, Max and Emme, kept her going:

"Back then the pain hurt so much, but I didn't want what happened to finish me. I wanted it to help me grow for the better. I didn't want to just survive it; I wanted to come out of it stronger than I was before."

"It took a lot a digging deep to do that. Right now I'd say it was the hardest thing I've ever been through, because of the kids. When you're this little scrappy girl and things happen, you just cry yourself to sleep. But when you're responsible for two other human beings and their lives and emotional wellbeing, that's a biggie. You're constantly wondering: 'Am I doing the right thing here?'"

JLo, who's taking part in the new season of 'American Idol', added that she finds it helpful to let her emotions out by crying every now and again: "I cry often. I cry out of exhaustion and feeling overwhelmed. I'll be holding it all together and then some little thing will trigger it - a commercial or a romantic moment in a movie - and the floodgates will open. It's about being tired all the time."
