Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony Split: Jealousy, Insecurity And Infidelity Revealed

July 20, 2011 07:42 AM by Lisa Princ


Recent reports have claimed that non stop arguing was to blame for American Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s split, but apparently there is more to the story than any of us knew. While the couple seemed happy on the surface, new revelations suggest that jealousy, insecurity and infidelity may have played a part in their breakup. Keep reading for more!

We already know that the powercouple of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were doing a lot of arguing lately, but sources are now coming out of the woodwork to reveal more issues that the couple had leading up to their announcement of their split. One inside friend of Jennifer Lopez revealed that Jennifer was always worried that her husband was not being faithful. The source told US Magazine: “Jennifer Lopez actually has low self-esteem. And Marc really played into that insecurity. That’s why she put up with his abuse for such a long time.” Jennifer Lopez with low self esteem? Do you buy that one? I am not sure I do.

Meanwhile, a source close to Marc Anthony told People Magazine: “They started to see life differently,” and went on to add that Marc was always faithful to Jennifer, and always supported her career. The magazine is also claiming that there was envy over American Idol and that Marc Anthony tried to control Jennifer Lopez quite a bit. That could very well explain why we have not heard anything about Jennifer returning to the judging panel next season, especially since older reports said Marc wanted her to focus more on their home life.

Despite the reason for the split of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, sources close to the couple say it is for the best, with one of their friends claiming: “Though they love, admire and respect each other very much, they just needed to be apart.” We wish them both the best of luck and hope they can move past this like adults for the sake of their children.

The power couple’s split still comes as a shock to us all – what do you think caused the split? Comment and share your thoughts with us!

    It’s complicated, but overall, my sense is that Jennifer was obsessed with the glitzy glam lifetyle and no doubt, she wanted to be a part of that crowd. I do think she has low self-esteem, in spite of all the things she has going for herself. The low self-esteem is because she always is comparing herself to those “more” fortunate than herself (which is wrong), like with more popular movie stars, and I think it comes across to them even. She envies them, or anyone she perceives is “better” or more fortunate than herself. Therein lies the problem, because Marc I sense has to fight this insatiable need to be with the “in” crowd. Instead of being happy with what she has & who she is, she pines. I think this is the root of what has decimated her marriage. Have you ever been around someone at a party who constantly wants to be “out there”? Their insecurity does indeed push them to behaviors which a husband could also then feel insecure with—such as where were her lines drawn at flirting & confiding in those around her that shouldn’t have such knowledge–at parties, at work, etc. JMHO. I don’t believe Marc was unfaithful. I think Jennifer was emotionally unfaithful & not willing to give as much as she needed. Because her ego was “built up” through AI, etc., she became more impatient with Marc’s own feelings of rejection & unimportance to her. Hence, she might have become too cocky for her own good. Now….her children will suffer, and I’m afraid to say, she may too, in the end…and she might have regrets, as well. If she were smart, she should just ask for a separation, not a divorce, for the time being, with NO dating others! Then, she might have time to think more, and he too.

    i think jeenifer was so “in” to herself.I think i have to agree with with laura.She loves to be in the limelight.she doesnt not appreciate her life and what she has.i know she loves her children and marc too and vice versa but that love wasnt enough for her to be satisfied and contented.i think she should think this over for there are two children who will be in the middle of all these she owes it those two.
