J.LO'S EX ON BEN'S STRIPPER SCANDAL: SHE HAD IT COMING TO HER

Published on: September 12, 2003

"J.Lo's karma got her back -- that's the REAL reason Ben cheated with strippers!"

Those were the biting words Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband Cris Judd told a friend after The ENQUIRER broke the story that J.Lo was two-timed by Ben Affleck with Canadian strippers.

"Cris feels that in the end, Jennifer got what was coming to her when she was humiliated by Ben," the friend disclosed.

Judd has never publicly criticized J.Lo for dumping him after she met Ben on the set of their recent bomb "Gigli."

And J.Lo has denied that she began her romance with Ben before she was estranged from Cris.

"But she sure found comfort in Ben's arms quickly enough after she dumped Cris. Their romance couldn't have made Cris feel worse," said the friend.

"So when he was cornered at a recent party and asked point-blank what he thought about the sizzling scandal over his ex-wife's fiance, he paused for a minute to think.

"Then he smugly replied, 'Well, all I can tell you is this: I believe in karma. And Jennifer's karma finally got her back when Ben cheated on her with those strippers.'

"Cris said when he heard about Ben's Canadian frolic, all he could think about was the pain he felt when Jennifer ended their marriage. He said, "What goes around comes around."
