Her love for them is no longer for real! Jennifer Lopez deflected an incredibly awkward interview question on L.A.'s Power 106 station Monday, March 10 regarding her exes Ben Affleck and Sean "Diddy" Combs by taking the diplomatic route -- sort of.

"You're on a raft in the middle of the ocean," show host Big Boy explained to the gorgeous star. "Oh, that would give me so much anxiety," interrupted Lopez, 44. "Oh, this about to give you more anxiety," Big Boy responded.

"You look in the ocean, you see two people floating," the host continued. "You can only pull up one, because that's how much room you have on the raft. You look in the ocean, you see Ben Affleck and you see Diddy."

Lopez, as soon as she heard Affleck's name, started laughing. After Diddy was named as the second option, she erupted into a full fit of giggles. "I'd let both those motherf--kers drown!" she yelled. (The star famously dated Combs, who once went by the moniker Puff Daddy or "Puffy," from 1999 to 2001, and was with Affleck -- to whom she was briefly engaged -- from 2002 to 2004.)

Immediately realizing the weight of her words, Lopez quickly chimed, "That's terrible, I'm just joking!" Extending her hand at the video camera, J.Lo added, "Ben, Puffy, you know I love you. You know it!" She added to Big Boy, "They know it."

Indeed, all is good between Lopez and her exes.

In an October 2012 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck, who now has three kids with actress Jen Garner, said he stays in touch with the beautiful Bronx native. "We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great. I remember when she got American Idol. I said: 'This was really smart. Good luck.' I touch base," the 41-year-old actor-turned-director explained.

"She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."

As for Combs? When the 44-year-old entrepreneur appeared on Idol as a guest judge back in 2012, an observer told Us Weekly that J.Lo made a bee-line for him and seemed "friendly" while chatting.

Still, Lopez wasn't happy about the line of questioning on Monday's chat. "This is the worst interview ever!" she bellowed.
