The character Lopez portrays, Kat Valdez, is part of a celebrity power couple; her partner is Maluma’s Bastian, another music icon. As superstars, their upcoming wedding will be a huge event – they have a joint hit, “Marry Me,” and the ceremony will be a live streamed and viewed by a large audience.
Kat finds out moments before walking down the aisle that Bastian has been cheating on her, so she chooses to marry a random audience member instead.
