Jennifer Lopez Reveals Her Mom ‘Beat The Sh*t’ Out Of Her As A Child

American Celebrity, Jennifer Lopez gets real about her complicated relationship with her mother Guadalupe “Lupe” Rodriguez.

The singer opened out about her difficult childhood in her new Netflix documentary Halftime, revealing that her mother used to “beat” her. The 52-year-old shared more than just harsh love at home in one scene:

“She [Rodriguez] did what she had to do to survive, and it made her strong, but it also made her tough. She beat the s**t out of you.”

J.Lo grew up in the Bronx with her sisters, Leslie and Lynda, their father, David, and Lupe, a Puerto Rican immigrant. When their daughters were older, their parents divorced. Lupe was just as candid about her rigorous parenting when she appeared in the documentary to talk about the Marry Me star’s time at home, saying:

“I always had the highest expectations of them. It wasn’t to be critical. It was only to show you that you could do better.”

She also admitted that she and Jennifer had the most difficult relationship growing up, adding:

“Jennifer, she gave me the hardest time, to tell you the truth. We butted heads a lot.”

That isn’t exactly shocking. After disagreeing with her mother about her future, Ben Affleck’s fiancée fled home at the age of eighteen. The Let’s Get Loud singer couldn’t concentrate on anything but dancing at the moment, while her mother was more concerned with her education. Jennifer explained:

“My mom was like, ‘If you’re gonna live in this house, you’re gonna get your education.’ We got into a bad fight one night and I just left.”

Lupe went on to explain that she wanted her daughters to get a good education so they wouldn’t be reliant on men when they got older. And, of course, she certainly couldn’t have predicted the insane amount of success J.Lo would go on to have for her dancing, singing, and acting!

Elsewhere in the film, the 76-year-old acknowledged her shortcomings when it came to raising her daughters, vulnerably saying:

“I was far from the perfect mother. The one thing I can always say, everything I did, I did with their best interest at heart.”

While Jenny from the Block still describes her mom as a “complicated” person in the documentary, they do share a much better relationship these days. Love to hear that!
