For the past few years, it seem that the "On the Floor" actress who made a name for herself in the late 90s is just about everywhere - but how much is Jennifer Lopez's net worth right now?
Lopez was one of the major trendsetters in the late 90s and early 00s: she put curves in the map at a time where skinny supermodels were the norm of beauty - allowing other bootylicious celebrities like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian to succeed later on.
As a part of Jennifer Lopez's net worth, her famous butt is reportedly insured for millions of dollars, according to Business Insider - 27 million to be precise, and that was way back 2010, so there's a fairly big chance that's not the number anymore.
And that's just one of the trends she put on the map: before Jennifer Lopez's net worth became positively stratospheric, the woman responsible for "Jenny from the Block" was a part of a huge deal in gossip columns, being one half of the very first portmanteau celebrity name: Bennifer!
Lopez's relationship to Ben Affleck was one of the most publicized love affairs in the history of celebrity super couples: every detail of their relationship and engagement was made public to the press, from Jennifer Lopez's net worth to everything that happened on the sets of the films they did together, the critically panned "Gigli" and "Jersey Girl."
Over the past weekend, Ben Affleck made news after he fumbled on a speech during the Hollywood Film Awards - where former love Lopez was around watching, according to Hollywood Life! Of course, it's surely not the first time the two have been in the same place since they broke up in the early days of 2004, but the press has been making quite a fuss due to the fact that he seemed evidently uncomfortable talking about a recent full nudity scene.
As Jennifer Lopez's net worth grows, one fact remains: she definitely had some big problems letting go of Ben at the time, and some even speculated that her subsequent marriage to salsa star and actor Marc Anthony was a rebound relationship - but as they continued to be together for years and ended up having children, rumors appeased and the press was sad to report when they broke off their marriage after nearly a decade, and their divorce was finalized on the summer of 2014.
At about the same time Lopez was marrying Anthony, Ben Affleck began going out with his "Daredevil" co-star, Jennifer Garner, who at the time was the star of the hit television show "Alias," where she played superspy Sydney Bristow. They both later married in 2005, and have had three children together: daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel.
Besides the fact that Jennifer Lopez's net worth is among the highest in the industry, she was also responsible for creating yet another trend in celebrity naming: shortening the names.
Her album "J. Lo" quickly became not only a hit in the charts, but also the way many refer to her as a personality ever since, creating a trend of shortening celebrity's names - the most recent and obvious copy being Jennifer Lawrence's press shortening, J. Law, an obvious reference to the Bronx singer and actress.
At the same award show that saw her ex Ben Affleck fumbling through a speech about a nudity scene, Jennifer Lopez's net worth became the subject of speculation once more, as she walked down the carpet with a very revealing outfit (she's famous for wearing dresses like that, such as her celebrated Versace dress in the 2000 Grammy Awards), a black and white Zuhair Murad dress with a big cleavage that showed her famous figure, along with Brian Atwood pumps, according to Perez Hilton.
Currently, Jennifer Lopez's net worth stands at $300 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, and she makes from 20 to 30 million dollars a year. But don't be fooled by the rocks that she's got, she's still Jenny from the Block!
