The honeymoon is over: Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announced their seven year marriage officially is over. The couple revealed the shocking news to People magazine in a joint statement on Friday.
“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.”
JLo and Marc had dated briefly in the 1990s and then rekindled their romance in 2004. The pair were married in June 2004 and are the proud parents of 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
This is Jennifer Lopez’s third divorce. In 2008 her marriage to Ojani Noa collapsed after one year and she divorced dancer Chris Judd in 2004 after two years of marriage.
