Jennifer Lopez is sure full of announcements this week and we thought for sure her American Idol news would come before news she split with husband Marc Anthony. No, you didn’t hear wrong. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are over. Keep reading to find out the details…
Last season’s, and hopefully this season’s, American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez dropped a bombshell when it was announced her and husband of seven years, Marc Anthony, were splitting.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony released the following statement: ”We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
The timing is certainly interesting. Just as early as January Lopez was gushing about babies and then recently showed up to the BAFTA Brits To Watch gala minus Anthony. She did have her mother on her arm, but still, it makes sense as to why he wasn’t there.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony share three-year-old twins, Emme and Max, and have renewed their vows on more than one occasion. The last being in 2010 for their six year anniversary. Kind of sad to think what a difference a year makes.
Jennifer Lopez just announced she’ll be part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September and we’re still waiting to see if she’ll be returning to her judges’ chair for season 11 of American Idol.
Let’s do as they ask and respect their privacy. We promise only to bring you the most important Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony news.
