People and TMZ have confirmed that Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are ending their marriage. The pair released a statement as follows: “We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
This will be Jennifer’s third divorce — she was married in 1997 to Ojani Noa, and again in 2001 to her backup dancer Chris Judd.
Twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximillian David Muñiz were born to Lopez and Anthony on February 22, 2008. People paid $6 million for the first photos of the twins.
This will be Marc’s second divorce. Marc Anthony married former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres on May 9, 2000 in Las Vegas. They have two sons, Cristian Marcus Muñiz and Ryan Adrian. The pair separated in early 2002.
Lopez and Anthony got married in 2004 in their Beverly Hills home. They have two children.
