Jennifer Lopez has opened up a little about her divorce with Vanity Fair. The ‘hopeless romantic’ still believes in love, but was she was done ‘compromising.’

Jennifer says that relationships just don’t work sometimes, “That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love. It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

But don’t count on Jennifer giving up on love.

“I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love. It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

It looks like Jennifer did the divorcing…she was done…with what though? Was there cheating?

On a side note Jennifer may have gotten a pay raise for American Idol…her salary may have been bumped from $12M to a little over $20M According to The Wrap. All that needs to be done is to figure out scheduling and sign on the dotted line. Idol will be back next year and The X Factor make sit debut in the fall.
