The fabulous estate where Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will say “I do” Saturday night has a tortured celebrity history.
Soto Il Monte, as it is called, was where Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck planned to wed in 2003! Just three days before their 400 guests were to gather for an elaborate ceremony, they pulled the plug.
Now a neighbor with a sense of humor has hung a sign saying “Congratulations Ben & Jen” with the “Ben & Jen” crossed out and “Kim & Kris” written in.
Initially, it was said the Affleck-Lopez wedding had been merely postponed, but three months later, Lopez announced they’d split for good.
Affleck later married actress Jennifer Garner in the most private of ceremonies. They have two daughters. Lopez later married Marc Anthony. They are now divorcing.
