The Fairy Tale Is Over: Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony Split!
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful Latina girl from the Bronx who loved to dance and fall in love. She would marry over and over again, get shot at in clubs with puffy rappers and even face a press monster named “Bennifer” all in the quest to find her one true prince. Then one day she met a fellow Latino who loved to sing and dance and all was right with the world. They would get married, have two perfect twin babies and live happily ever after…until one day her Prince was tagged by the IRS for $3.4 million in unpaid taxes….
The third time wasn’t the charm for singer, actress, dancer, spokesmodel and American Idol host Jennifer Lopez. Although the gorgeous Latina may be good at alot of things, marriage ain’t one of them. After sevens years in what was seemingly wedded bliss, it was announced that Lopez and actor/singer Marc Anthony were calling it quits.
“We have decided to end our marriage,” they wrote in a joint statement to the press. “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.”
Wedded in 2004 in a private ceremony at Lopez’s Beverly Hills home, the future divorcees are parents to cute-as-a-button three-year-old twins Max and Emme and seemed to be the perfect couple often working together in music and movies. So it comes as no surprise that the “power couple,” who renewed their vows just last year, are causing quite a stir throughout Hollywoood with most magazines, newspapers and other press outlets calling the announcement “shocking,” “startling,” “unexpected,” and “without warning,” but really I’m not even the slightest bit bewildered. This was Lopez’s third marriage and Anthony’s second. Clearly the two are unlucky in love and did anybody notice that Lopez’s last album was Love? That’s a question mark people, not an exclamation point!
So if love is the question, do you think People‘s “Most Beautiful Woman” will ever find the answer?
Less than two months ago the couple performed on the American Idol finale. Will this be their final duet?
