Singer Jennifer Lopez says she was devastated after her marriage with Marc Anthony ended.

The 43-year-old's seven-year marriage to Anthony, with whom she has four-year-old twins Max and Emme, ended six months ago.

"I was going through a divorce and the break-up of a family, which was devastating to me because family means everything to me," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Lopez as saying.

"I didn't want to be the woman who stayed in bed for months. I did do that a little but I knew I had to get through it," she added.

The singer is now in a relationship with 25-year-old dancer Casper Smart.
