Pop diva Jennifer Lopez has blasted her ex-lover SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS - accusing him of cheating on her during their relationship.

Speaking to American magazine VIBE, the I'M REAL singer said she didn't intend to fall in love with Combs - then known as PUFF DADDY - so soon after splitting from first husband OJANI NOA.

But Puffy eventually managed to melt her heart - making his infidelity all the more devastating.

She says, "It was the first time I was with someone who wasn't faithful. After my first divorce, I wasn't trying to be exclusive with anybody, but Puff came at me hard.

"He said he looked at me and fell in love and made me love him, too. We started a very tumultuous affair... I was in this relationship with Puff where I was totally crying, crazy and going nuts, it really took my whole life in a tailspin."

Asked about reports of her hunting down Combs and knocking down hotel room doors, Lopez adds, "I can't remember right now, but I won't say it didn't happen... I never caught him but I just knew. He'd say he was going to a club for a couple of hours and then never come back that night."

The JENNY FROM THE BLOCK singer, who finally split from rapper and music mogul Puffy in February 2001, adds that she and Combs "broke up so many times he didn't believe it was over when it finally ended".

She continues, "I had to think, do I want to be home with kids in 10 years wondering where somebody is at three in the morning?"
