Jennifer Lopez took to social media to defend her new line of booze and set the record straight on whether the pop superstar/singer even drinks, as many critics claimed she doesn’t imbibe following the news about her new cocktail brand.

The 53-year-old actress posted a video on Tuesday on Instagram plugging Delola, her spritzer line, against online critics who said the “Hustlers” star previously swore off drinking alcohol in interviews.

“I know that a lot of people have been talking about, ‘Oh she doesn’t even drink, what’s she doing with a cocktail line?'” Lopez said. “To tell you the truth, that was true for a long time – I didn’t drink.”

She also noted, that while she will does enjoy an occasional drink, she never drinks to get “s**t faced” and always drinks “responsibly.”

The singer said photos from a “a few years back” show that “over the past ten, maybe fifteen years” she has enjoyed “the occasional cocktail,” but when it came to finding the perfect drink, she “never found anything that I really love.”

“And so, like anything else in my life, I created it myself,” Lopez said, pointing out that Delola is a “healthier” way that “fit my lifestyle to drink the way that I would drink – the way Jennifer drinks.”

In a 2018 article, then-49-year-old Lopez told InStyle that one way she’s maintained her youthful glow is by abstaining from caffeine and alcohol, and getting lots of sleep.

“I’ve taken care of myself, and now it shows,” the singer said.

In April, when news first surfaced about the “Jenny From The Block” hitmaker’s booze line, she faced a backlash because of her husband Ben Affleck’s known struggle with alcohol addiction, CNN noted. Many of the comments connected to the video she posted Monday brought up similar concerns.

“So awkward when she talks about drinking responsibly and not getting s**t faced knowing her husband suffers from alcoholism for years,” one person wrote.

Another added, “I’m just confused about her talking about alcohol and cocktails when her husband is an Alcoholic … who is allegedly in recovery? Makes no sense at all and I find it very difficult to understand.”

While a third said, “So all of a sudden she’s been drinking for the past 15 years? Yet I’ve seen interviews that she says that she keeps herself healthy because she doesn’t drink. oh Lord.”
