Jennifer Lopez, J-Lo, and Marc Anthony are getting a divorce after seven years of a seemingly happy marriage.
In a statement, the couple went public with the decision: We have decided to end our marriage, they wrote 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.
And for J-Lo, the thrice married actress-turned-singer, and Anthony, divorce is something they've both been through before.
Lopez was previously married to Cuban-born Ojani Noa, followed by her former backup dancer, Cris Judd in 2001, but the marriage lasted only nine months. In 2004, Lopez married Marc Anthony. She has also had two high-profile relationship with Sean Puffy Combs (P Diddy) and Ben Affleck.
US magazine reported that Lopez told them that Sean Combs, who she dated before her marriage to Judd, cheated on her. She reportedly said, He'd say he was going to a club for a couple of hours, then never come back that night. I didn't catch him, but I knew.
After Lopez ended the marriage with Cris Judd, she began dating Affleck. The actor gave Lopez a six carat pink diamond ring, which was reported to cost $1.2 million. The relationship didn't last longer than two years before the couple broke off the engagement.
Lopez and Affleck starred in Gigli together and received the press given name of Bennifer.
Affleck has since stated that dating Lopez was probably bad for my career.
Last Saturday Lopez was seen in Hollywood sans Anthony at the BAFTA Brits to Watch event. Lopez mingled with Britain's Royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Weeds actress Mary Louise Parker, who was also at the event, stated that she didn't get to meet the Royal couple due to Lopez's persistence. I didn't meet them. I was shoved out of the way by Jennifer Lopez. Uh oh, I shouldn't have said that.
