Popular celebrity, Jennifer Lopez has come out to reflect on her childhood in her new documentary, “The Greatest Love Story Never Told.”

She recently claimed she didn’t receive enough love from her parents, and fans have been reacting.

According to her, she always looked for someone to make her feel loved while growing up, and she actually got lost between the first and last born in her family.

Jennifer added that she did not feel she had enough connection with her dad as a child because he kept working nights.

Her words, “When I was growing up, I was always looking for somebody to make me feel loved.

I was a middle child, not the baby, not the firstborn … you just kind of get lost a little bit in between it all.

I felt very ignored by my dad because he was always working nights, then all day he would sleep and I didn’t feel like I had enough of a connection with him.

My mom was narcissistic, center of the attention, life-of-the-party-type person.”
