Things got a little too personal for J.Lo's comfort over the weekend at a special show for Mohegan Sun's 15th anniversary celebration on Saturday night.

After dropping an acoustic rendition of her hit song "If You Had My Love," Lopez told the audience, "I'm going to sing you the last song I wrote about love," reports People.

What Made Marc Anthony Cry on His Birthday?

Before the 42-year-old pop star launched into  "Until It Beats No More," she stopped for a moment and mused, "A lot has changed since then." Lopez and soon-to-be-ex hubby Marc Anthony announced their split in July of 2011.

During the song, dancers seemed to recreate her infamous past relationships with high-profile celebs like Diddy and Ben Affleck, before a final couple appeared and shared a dance that looked an awful lot like J.Lo and Marc's steamy American Idol performance in May, just weeks before their divorce announcement. 

J.Lo Dodges Question About Her Relationship Status

"I took a trip down memory lane," Lopez sobbed as the audience roared with approval.

At least Lopez is able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. While holding up a picture of her 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, she gushed, "There's love – and then there's love." Plus, there's always Bradley Cooper.

While J.Lo's on stage breakdown seemed to be related to her breakup with Marc AnthonyPeople.com is now reporting that that the breakdown wasn't about Marc at all, but rather about Lopez's mother Guadalupe, who was at the concert. According to journalist Maria Menounos, Lopez was fine before the show. "I was watching her in the dress rehearsal and she was just giddy and having so much fun," says Menounos. "She seemed really positive and upbeat."

In an interview with Menounos airing tonight on Extra, Lopez explains why seeing her mom in the audience led to her breakdown. "I didn't see her the whole time until this one moment, and I was a bit emotional," the singer explains in the interview.

Lopez also tells Menounos that she had dancers re-enact scenes the men of her past, because she "wanted to do a section of the show that talked about love [and] different moments in my life."

In the interview, Lopez also explains that despite her high profile status, she's a regular person just like anybody else. "I have feelings and emotions. My life goes great and it goes not great sometimes. But you know what? We keep going, and that's what it is."
