J.Lo Reportedly Set To Wed Dancer

Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez plans to marry choreographer Cris Judd on Saturday, just seven months after she publicly split from rap impresario Sean “Puffy” Combs, according to New York tabloid reports Friday.

Lopez’s spokesman, Alan Nierob, declined comment on the reports.

The Bronx-born Latina bombshell and her fiancee went public as a couple at the Academy Awards in March. They plan to be married in Los Angeles, reports in the New York Post and Daily News said.

It would be the first trip to the alter for Judd and the second for Lopez, whose previous one-year marriage to male model Ojani Noa ended in divorce in 1998.

Lopez, 31, and Judd, 32, reportedly met while he was working on one of her music videos. More recently, he choreographed two Lopez concerts shot in Puerto Rico for an upcoming NBC television special.

Earlier this year, Lopez and Combs’ highly publicized romance of more than two years officially came to an end with his Valentine’s Day announcement of their breakup.

The split came as Combs was standing trial in New York on weapons and bribery charges and Lopez was basking in the twin successes of her chart-topping album, “J.Lo,” and her movie “The Wedding Planner.” Combs, who now goes by the moniker “P. Diddy,” was later acquitted.

Lopez, famed for her appearance at the 2000 Grammys in a gravity-defying Versace dress, was last in theaters in the mystery “Angel Eyes,” and she recently completed production on the thriller “Enough,” due for release next May.
