Marc Anthony splits from wife; was Jennifer Lopez to blame?


These two can’t seem to stay away from one another.

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have to be the most friendly exes ever (well, beside Jlo’s ex, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Garner, who are rumored to be reconciling amid pregnancy reports, but that’s a whole other ball of wax).

On Thursday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Lopez popped up on stage at the 17th annual Latin Grammy Awards Thursday to “surprise” the Person of the Year award to her ex-husband and father of her 8-year-old twins, Max and Emme. The salsa great and movie star were married from 2004 to 2011 and are working on album together.

But, big but: Anthony is currently separated from wife No. 3, Shannon de Lima, reports E! News.

The Venezuelan model may have not been too cool about how friendly her hubby was with the Hollywood powerhouse. She wasn’t even in attendance at the ceremony and he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring. They seemed happy, at least to social media watches, on his birthday in September. What happened? Que paso?

Three sources confirmed the sad news to the gossip outlet.

As for Lopez, she is no longer with Casper Smart, and seems to be very loving toward Anthony. Could a reconciliation be in the works?

J.Lo told him at the ceremony: “We have learned so much and we’ve grown so much, and you’ve always been so many things in my life: my mentor, a twin soul, a father who’s not only the Person of the Year, he’s the person of all time.”

Then after the audience yelled for them to kiss: “Kiss!” “Besa!” Lopez and Anthony both obliged to cheers.

After all the hoopla about the kiss, which was really a peck, Anthony took to his Instagram to post pictures of him on a plane planting his lips on a handful of people, including guys, with the hashtag #elbesoeffect. He seems to be challenging his fans with another hashtag #whatsurbeso

Lopez and Anthony also made beautiful music together, doing a duet of the song “Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta” Ironic? The translation is “Forget Me and Move On.”

Anthony was bestowed with the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year after more than 20 years in show business.

Meanwhile, if you’re seeing Anthony in concert Friday night, you’re invited to the official afterparty. You may not know B.O.B. personally, but you’re invited to the rapper’s birthday party at E11EVEN, which happens to fall on the same night.
