Family affair: Jennifer Lopez was joined by her sister Lynda, mother Guadalupe and niece Lucie at the BET Studios in Manhattan today

Jennifer Lopez turned her trip to New York into a family affair today.

The singer, who is on a promotional tour for her new album Love?, reunited with her mother Guadalupe and her younger sister Lynda as she left the BET Studios in Manhattan.

The 41-year-old opted for a white hot look in a trench coat and silver heels while the rest of her family kept it casual.

Lynda, 39, who is an Emmy Award winning television journalist, took along her daughter Lucie, who turns three in August.

Of course, Jennifer is no stranger to the Big Apple - she grew up in The Bronx and her debut album On the 6, was a referenced to the 6 subway line she used to catch when she was just starting out.

While the star is now close with her family, it hasn't always been the case.

Jennifer and her mother, a former kindergarten teacher, have had a tumultuous relationship over the years and at one point the pair didn't speak.

She left home at 17 because her mother was furious she had turned down a place in business college to pursue music.

'I did not want this lifestyle for her,' Guadalupe admitted in a documentary about her daughter last year.

Mother and daughter continued having a troubled relationship, even after J-Lo found fame, but a key emotional turning point came when Jennifer became a mother herself.

'She gave me a card saying, "The way you feel about Max and Emme I feel about you",' Jennifer recalled.

Meanwhile, Jennifer today said her twins aren't old enough to watch her raunchy music videos.

Her brand new video for the single I'm Into You features the 41-year-old beauty writhing on a beach with shirtless actor William Levy, 30, who is known as the 'Brad Pitt of Mexico'.
