The 54-year-old's 'Rebound' music video depicts an abusive relationship. It starts with Jennifer and an abusive partner arguing in a glass house. 

Another scene shows her bound to the man.  She manages to get away from him, but he tries to break down the glass door. J. LO screams in agony, causing the glass house to shatter. 

According to Rolling Stone, the singer wrote 'Rebound' after her husband, Ben Affleck, encouraged her to write about the pain she experienced in the past.  

“The video depicts abusive relationships in all forms, and it is the first time she has revealed the truth of her past experiences, with the overarching message and intention to help others get out of similar situations. Love should never hurt," the magazine quoted a press release as saying. 

The 'I'm Real' singer has previously spoken out about being in abusive relationships. She opened up about being abused in her 2014 memoir, 'True Love'. 

"I've never gotten a black eye or busted lip, but I have been in relationships where I felt abused one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally," she shares. "I know what it feels like for your soul to be diminished by the way your loved one is treating you," she wrote, according to E! News.

'Rebound' is the second song released from Jennifer's 9th studio album, 'This Is Me... Now'.
