Jennifer Lopez is back on the block! The singer/actress and husband Marc Anthony are calling it quits on their seven year marriage. In a statement to People magazine the couple announced that they were splitting up.
“We have decided to end our marriage,” they tell PEOPLE exclusively in a joint statement. “This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
“It is a painful time for all involved,” the statement continues, “and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.” The two music and television stars have three-year-old twins named Max and Emme.
Rumors had bubbled in 2009 that the couple was splitting but they vehemently denied it via public displays of marital bliss.
Anthony is currently playing opposite Jada Pinkett-Smith in these season of “HawthoRNe” and Lopez is a judge on “American Idol”.
