They once seemed to be the ideal family: gorgeous, successful superstar Jennifer Lopez wed to sexy crooner Marc Anthony, plus their adorable 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme. But when the couple announced the end of their seven-year union on July 15, it became clear that the truth behind the A-list pairing didn’t match the public image. OK! has the inside scoop in this week’s issue!
“There have been a lot of tears,” an insider close to the couple tells OK! of the weeks leading up to the split. “It was a difficult decision for Jennifer, and she’s been putting on a brave face. She was struggling with whether she should stay and hope her marriage gets better or give up on it. It was really hard for her, but she didn’t want to be in a relationship where she wasn’t madly in love with her husband anymore.”
“J.Lo and Marc used to have incredible passion between them, and that was the glue that held them together,” says another insider. “[But lately] they had been drifting apart to more of a friendship,” says the longtime friend of the couple.
Some say that’s because Marc had a wandering eye. “I think Marc wanted to be with other women,” reveals a source close to the situation.
To make matters worse, Marc has been spending time with his sexy ex-wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, with whom he has two sons. “Dayanara used to feel like she was hiding because Marc had to sneak around to see their kids,” says an insider, but in the past few months, that all changed. “Now, he sees the children on a regular basis. And he’s not only visiting the children; he’s also visiting Dayanara,” making J.Lo none too happy, says the source.
