Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announce their divorce


Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have called it quits after 7 years of marriage. They made the announcement 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.”

Sources are now reporting that there have been signs of trouble for the couple for a while now. Jennifer and Marc haven’t been seen together since early June, which was originally attributed to each working on separate projects. Lopez traveled to France and Spain with her mother and the kids to participate in a French reality show while Anthony filmed the TNT medical drama HawthoRNe, in which he plays a police detective.

But soon after, Lopez was also spotted at Disneyland spending quality time with her kids but without Anthony. She then arrived at the BAFTA gala in Los Angeles on July 9 without her husband and supposedly not wearing her wedding ring. Everyone noticed that Marc was missing this time because the couple was supposed to be guests of honor at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s table at the gala. Instead, it was Jennifer’s mom that accompanied her daughter and got to meet the Duke and Duchess. Now, just a week later, they confirmed the rumors with the announcement of their divorce.

The couple wed in June 2004 and has two children together, 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
