Jennifer Lopez and estranged husband Marc Anthony reunited briefly at a beach in Southampton, N.Y., so the dad could enjoy quality time with their 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

The couple was spotted in the backseat of a red convertible Wednesday.

Publicists from both sides were quick to make clear that this was no reunion. Lopez's representative said, "There are not back together -- they were just visiting each other and the children."

The 42-year-old American Idol judge recently signed on to continue her role, with a reported $20 million dollar contract, up from her previous $12 million.

The Hollywood couple shocked fans and America last month when they accounced their split.
