After years of rumors and speculation of the state of their marriage Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split up after seven years of marriage. Jennifer, 41, and Marc, 42 got married in a quiet ceremony at their home in 2004. Jennifer gave birth on February 22, 2008 to fraternal twins, a girl and a boy, Emme Maribel Muñiz, and Maximilian “Max” David Muñiz. No word yet on any custody arrangements.
People Magazine received 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,” the statement continues, “and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
I wonder if this all has to do with her comeback and her gig on Idol. Was this the reason she was hesitating about signing again with Idol. Was Marc having problems with her fame? I am sure we will hear a lot of speculation in the days to come.
