Singer regrets talking about depression and stress

Jennifer Lopez is taking legal action against a US website for publishing quotes about her having a ‘nervous breakdown’.

The singer was being interviewed by Elle magazine’s Kevin Sessums when she opened up about feeling blue after the Caesarean birth of twins Max and Emme and being ‘overworked’.

‘At the tenth day after giving birth all that chemical stuff did peak – that hormone thing – and I did cry a lot that day because I was having so much trouble moving,’ she is reported to have said.

Talking about a stressful time in the past, during filming of 2002’s Enough, when she was ‘doing music and movies and so many things’, Jennifer is said to have admitted she had ‘a kind of nervous breakdown’.

She later withdrew the comments because she wasn’t ‘comfortable with the questioning,’ says her rep.

Despite her request, the entire interview has appeared on website The Daily Beast.

‘The story accurately reports what Kevin Sessums learned from Ms Lopez in his interview,’ a spokesperson for the site tells Access Hollywood. ‘He owns the story and The Daily Beast was happy to publish it.’

Jennifer Lopez’s team have now sent a legal letter to the website.
