    I am sort of shocked. It did seem he was more into her than her into him. I wish them both the best.

    I am so NOT shocked.

    Saw this coming with JLo’s career back on the up swing again. This is her second chance to continue her career after some hiccups in film and music etc. American Idol was her restart from the start. Sad to see them split though and that something like her career got in the way. Hopefully they will be able to put things aside and continue to be a strong parenting team to their twins. Her career might seem important to her right now but your children are always the most important gift you’ll ever have in life.

  • Lou

    I think she should hook up with Tom Cruise !

  • Anna

    A girl (or boy or whatever that is) said on a Local TV Channel in Monterrey, Mexico that they will divorce on January this year…
    Can’t believe this!
    They really looked like a solid couple!

  • Nana

    That Jennifer Lopez is just using men. She just hooked up with Marc Anthony as a rebound from being dumped and humiliated by Ben Affleck. Also, she just wanted children before she got too old – she was artificially inseminated! She used P.Diddy, Benny Medina, Wayans Bros., and many many many more for her failing career. I don’t care about J.Lo because she is nothing but hot air and smoke & mirrors. She can’t act, sing, dance, design, perform, talk, etc. She is talentless. She is ugly. Her children are….well her son is cute – he looks like the father. Poor Marc Anthony, if he divorced her – good for him! She bossed him around like he was a little kid.

    I’m surprised. They looked so in love. At first I thought they would not last but after two children, they looked so in love. But only they know of the problems in their relationship. It is sad that there are two children involved but they are not the first nor the las tto end a marriage. but if they were not happy as a couple is better to end for ther childrem before continuing in a relationship where no one is happy. I hope they tried to save their relationship before making this decision.

  • Rwbecca

    First off Ben Affleck has nothing to do with this! At all every where you look it was because of Ben. Who is happily married to the white Jen
    She is the right woman for Ben! Two children later they have a great
    Relationship! No Ben has never anything to do with this!

  • marxsbabe

    Guys all your comments here are so sweet and naive. WAKE UP PEOPLE THERE IS ONLY ONE REASON WHY THEY DIVORCE. ITS ABOUT MONEY. MARC ANTHONY OWED THE US AROUND 3 MILLION IN BACK TAXES. SHE HAS MONEY AND A DAY JOB HE HASN’T AS HIS LEGAL WIFE SHE WOULD HAVE TO PAY PART OF IT OR THE REST OF IT. AND SINCE HER “LOVE DO COST A THING” SHE DECIDED THAT ITS CHEAPER TO JUST DIVORCE THE RAT FACED FATHER OF HER CHILDREN. Poor Marc Anthony I guess this is what he gets when he left his first wife and two young children for Hollywood’s number 1 man eater. Not only is his pathway to becoming an American citizenship in jeopardy but he has to pay his American back taxes by himself.

  • larsvonwhat

    perhaps she shouldve left the show for some quality family time, funny that although models and actors lead busy lives, models tend to have longer relationships

  • l

    publicity stunt??….. just the past jlo used the men in her life as stepping stones just to get her to the next level…
    hope she finds real love one day

  • Sammy

    I never would think Jlo and Marc would ever get divorce! They seemed so perfect for echother and they been together for so long =( I like to know what their excuse was. What a SHOCK! Im glad Tom & Katie and Brad & Angie are still together even if Brangelina isn’t married LOL=)

  • Jory

    Wow I’m extremely shocked I didn’t see this comind, nothing really last in Hollywood :S

  • Sucks for them

    i always love them and support them this not change anything.
    i respect their privacity and decision.

  • Marieme

    I must be psychic cuz I predicted this the day they got married. This is soooo JLo. She doesn’t know what the hell she wants, except more and more and more attention. Next!

  • Charles Bronson

    Who the f*ck cares!!!!!!! Suckers get a life.That b*tch is walking around her mansion with a mug of hot cocoa.

  • unknown

    Everyone seems surprised but i’m not. With the american idol thing i bet her ego got even more out of control. she’s very annoying in interviews too

  • http://jad slig o lambert^_______^ cute

    i told u they have secret

  • Maria

    @Maggie: i always thought she’s still in love with Ben. i thought Ben and JLo looked great together. too bad she didn’t have Ben’s children.

  • Well…

    Did not see this coming. Thought they were another Hollywood “power couple.” Not so. Marc was in lust with Jlo for a while, but he was also a cheater on his other beautiful wife. Bet his spots did not change. He probably thought that Jlo would be woman enough to make him finally settle with one woman, but they have now been married for a while–seven-yr-itch can happen to the lustiest couples, cuz that feeling ALWAYS fades. Just gotta marry for more than that. Marc seems insecure. He’s a little man and he’s unattractive. He probably needs to prove himself with different women. Jlo should not marry again. She can be great by herself with her family’s support and love.

  • Maya

    I saw it coming. Lately, she has been always alone in public. Go figure. Still sad for the children.

  • Fernanda Prevedello

    Ohhhhhh… I’m sad with that…. =(

  • Courtney

    sadly 95% of marriages in hollywood end in divorce so Marc and Jen joining that list doesn’t surprise me by the way she turns 41 next sunday July 24th. I could see this coming 3 years ago when she said her and Marc wanted to emulate Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward’s marriage and thats obviously not possible in this day and age and never mind that fact that Woodward was the bigger star when she and Newman got married in 1958 as she was nominated for a golden globe an oscar and won both of them within two months of their wedding and they also dealt with tragedy from the beginning of their marriage something Marc & Jen never did

  • Terri258

    @tami: Why is everyone shocked? They had bad karma when Marc cheated on his previous wife (Dayanarra Torres-former Miss Universe 1993), with Jennifer. The marriage was doomed from the start . The breakup shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

  • hm…


  • wow

    JLO , Britney and Halle should stay away from marriages and relationships. I thought he was the one for her but he seem controling and not her type of dudes. She prob stay in the marrige this long because of her kids. I think she really did love Ben and just settle for her mark.

  • cheater

    That why he gets for leaving his beautiful wife and children for Jlo. Jlo can’t stay marry.

  • reap what you sow

    This was inevitable. two reasons. 1. Marc’s strong controlling personality. They are both big stars. He is big in the hispanic music sceen, her in both hispanic and especially in american pop culture. Once married he kept her star from burning as bright so that he could be the biggest and brightest star in the (house) marriage. Have you noticed how muted she was for awhile. It’s a cultural thing. When her star became bright again on american idol and she emerged in the spotlight again in a big way he ego could not handle it.

    (2).Lets see. Marc Anthony married his first wife twice. He dumped her the minute J.Lo became avaliable. 3 days after the divorce he married J.Lo. the women he always wanted before the ink was dry. However there was a price to be paid for cheating on and dumping your first wife. Eventually you will get it back no matter how long it takes. When you piss on someones happily ever after for selfish gain your happily ever after will eventually explode in your face. No one get away, not even the rich and famous. Dayanara is getting the last laugh. What do you think will eventually happen to brangelina? How you get them is how you keep them. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.

  • Ohboy

  • who know

    2 months ago she was tagged the HOTTEST woman ever!…her career has not moved an inch since she married Marc. He was simply her SPERM DONOR .She doesn’t need him anymore…. now that she is HOTTEST chic. He will be too controlling of her to do whatever she pleases and so she does what?!….GETS RID OF HIM!!!….she still loves BEN AFFLECK…and always will.She never loved MARC…..AKA(SPERM DONOR)….and he looked so little standing by her.I always know something was amis…well,there u go…………..

  • reap what you sow

    They both cheated on and dumped formal spouses. Marc Anthony is smalland boney. Not exactly her type. She was humiliated by Ben and knew Marc always wanted her. His owned selfishness got in the way and he dumped his wife and family. They tried to stay together but Marc wanted to be in NY so he can be around all his kids and baby mamas. J.LO’s job is in LA. He did not want to compromise or allow her to be the bigger star in the family. Besides she only loved him to a point. I don’t think she was happy with him phyisically. He’s unatractive in most standards. He may be a big star but on the red carpet, he was an ugly embarrassment. The entire ralationship started out foul. Learn the lesson from this people. He wanted her to give up american idol. She was not going to do that nor should he expect her to. She allows him to do what he wanted in his career. He is a selfish ass. It does not matter what we think of her talent. She is getting paid and he is simply jealous. I’m guessing he gave her an Ultimadim, LEAVE AMERICAN IDOL OR IT’S OVER. He did not get the memo, they don’t usually work. Marc, your wife is a bigger star than you. You knew this going into it. You kept her in your cage as long as you could. She is not Dayanara (staying at home cooking and cleaning with the kidS) OR YOU OTHER BABY MAMA. Marc, you are a fool. GROW UP. J.LO, GROW UP.

    OMG. People have you seen on OKmagazie! Brad Pitt flirting with an other woman! here the pic!!!!!!!

  • lurker


    You do realize she is an assistant on the set right.? So because Brad is involved with Angelina no one is allowed to touch his arm. Idiots like you are the reason the tabloids are still in existence today.
