They were once one of the most famous couples in the world – back when he called himself Puff Daddy.
But Jennifer Lopez and P Diddy have both moved on with their lives and relationships, and appear to still be on extremely good terms.
Jennifer, 43, was overheard greeting her ex warmly at the Weinstein party following the Golden Globe awards, saying ‘Hello baby’ as she kissed him on the cheek, before introducing him to her toyboy beau and date for the night, Casper Smart.
And Diddy, who is now in a happy relationship with girlfriend Cassie, looked more than happy to meet Casper – extending his hand to shake the dancer’s as the trio caught up inside the event.
Jennifer and Diddy began dating in 1999 but the high-profile relationship ended two years later soon after they were both arrested over a nightclub shooting in New York.
She revealed in a tell-all interview last year that the incident was one of her lowest moments.
‘That was one of the worst nights of my life,’ she said. ‘It was devastating for me to have lived through that.’ Jennifer also revealed that the relationship was never able to recover, adding: ‘It started out as something very pure and innocent. But it did get ugly – it did get sordid.
‘We did fall in love and we were very close. He became a mentor as well and he really nurtured me.
‘But my relationship with him was always something I knew would end. ‘After their split Diddy admitted he was going to find it hard to cope after the break-up.
He said in 2001: ‘Jennifer is somebody I will always love.
‘It’s hard being a celebrity in a relationship. We will meet again some day. My heart is strong.’
And Jennifer and Diddy certainly looked to be amicable as they chatted inside the party.
Jennifer had changed for the occasion, swapping her white and nude sheer lace dress for a plunging black number.
The mother-of-two also swapped her loose curls for a chic updo, and added stacks of silver bangles to complete the look.
Earlier in the evening, Jennifer had wowed on the red carpet for the awards wearing a flesh-coloured Zuhair Murad figure-hugging gown featuring an ivory embroidered lace overlay with beading detail which strategically covered her modesty.
Despite three failed marriages, Jennifer, who has four-year-old twins Max and Emme with her former husband Marc Anthony, recently insisted she still believes love is the most important thing. ‘She said: “You have to believe there’s somebody out there who is trustworthy, who’ll stick in there. “It’s difficult when a family breaks up. I’m still living through it, just trying to do my best with the kids and moving on. It was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made.’It’s been tough but I still believe in love. That would be my message: love is the most important thing.’
