Another celebrity marriage has ended. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have decided to split after seven years of marriage.
“We have decided to end our marriage,” the couple says in a joint statement to OK!. “This was a very difficult decision.”
The statement adds: “We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
Jennifer, 41, married the 42-year-old Latin singer in a private ceremony in 2004.
They are the proud parents to 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Last month the couple was seen smiling on the red carpet at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala.
During the American Idol finale, Marc took the stage and performed his rendition of Héctor Lavoe’s “Aguanile,” and Jennifer surprised everyone, when she joined him on stage and did a sexy dance across the floor, wearing a white, fringe leotard and heels.
