They announced their separation back in July 2011 – now Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez.
Marc, 43, filed divorce papers at the LA Superior Court on Monday, TMZ reports. The Latin singer asks for joint legal and physical custody of his two children with J-Lo, four-year-old twins Max and Emme. The papers also ask that each party for their own legal fees.
American Idol judge Jennifer, 42, is currently dating toy boy backing dancer Casper Smart, 24, and sources have told Us Weekly that Marc isn’t happy about J-Lo’s new man bonding with his children. He “hit the roof” after seeing pictures of his children with Casper at Thanksgiving. Could J-Lo’s new relationship be the reason why Marc is finally seeking a divorce?
Jenny from the block recently told Vogue how special her new boyf is, “He really is [sweet]. He's a good egg. I don't want to talk about it too much. It's my private thing.” Or perhaps Marc is getting serious with his new love. He’s currently dating Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima.
Marc and Jennifer were married for seven years, and they announced their split back in July with a statement that said,
“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.”
