In last night’s special Nightline interview, Marc Anthony denied cheating on Jennifer Lopez and laughed at the reports that he was having an affair with his HawthoRNe co-star Jada Pinkett Smith.
“People are trying to peg it on things because it was so shocking,” Marc explained on ABC’s Nightline about his split from J.Lo after seven years of marriage. “It was like, ‘It must have been something.’ … It wasn’t something sensationalistic.”
And it especially didn’t have anything to do with an affair with Will Smith‘s wife, Jada!
“When something like that happens, it’s laughable,” he said of the rumors.
And it wasn’t just laughable to Marc — it was laughable to everyone involved.
“We were laughing,” Marc said. “We were like, ‘Wow, we’ve been friends for years.’ Jada, Jennifer, me, him — for years!”
But still, the rumors did hurt them.
“What bothers me is the effect it has on family: to Will and Jada’s circle, to their friends, their family, their loved ones.”
