In response to her manager's Vogue interview, the 'American Idol' judge says, 'I know the way he says things and I know he would never say anything that would be hurtful to me in anyway.'
Jennifer Lopez doesn't think badly of Benny Medina despite his recent comments in Vogue magazine about her letting "obsessive guys pursue her." In fact, the "On the Floor" hitmaker came to her longtime manager's defense when asked about the matter, sharing her belief that his words have been misconstrued.
Speaking to Laura Saltman of Access Hollywood, 42-year-old singer said, "I know Benny and he's like my best friend, like I said, my creative soul mate, and I know the way he says things and I know he would never say anything that would be hurtful to me in anyway." She added, "So things can be taken out of context and you know I've done interviews for a long time."
The estranged wife of Marc Anthony went on to share her thought on whether Medina's comments have been taken out of context. "I think a lot of it, you can place it in a way that cannot be the best way to put it. You have to just know what is going to be misconstrued let's say," she pointed out, before stressing, "I trust him completely. I mean, he's the godfather to my children."
Medina talked about J.Lo's tendency to jump from one relationship to another in an interview with Vogue magazine. "The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone, instead of having obsessive guys pursue her," he was quoted as saying. During the chat, he also commented on his client's relationship with younger boyfriend Casper Smart.
