Celebrity Couple Heading for Divorce

BlindGossip – Although nothing has been announced yet, this celebrity couple is almost certainly heading for divorce. They haven’t lived together for several months, lawyers are being hired, and each spouse already has a new paramour. Hers is a work colleague. His is a former (?) escort.

SOLVED!

It’s Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony! Source: BG and everywhere

These two have lived separately for a while, but the announcement was delayed several times. They don’t want any attention, which is why they waited to announce on a Friday afternoon in the middle of the summer. Both of them are terrified about the details of who they are really dating coming out, but BG assures you that it will be very interesting when it does!

Congratulations to DallasJAC for being first with the correct answer!

The divorce was just announced across all media outlets. Thanks to everyone who sent us links. Here is the announcement from USAToday. The funniest part is where they say that “The split comes as a surprise to celebrity watchers.” Not to BG readers!:

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, a superstar couple who turned their personal union into a veritable professional brand, announced Friday that they are ending their seven-year marriage.

 

In a statement to The Associated Press from Lopez’s publicist, the pair called the move to end their marriage a “very difficult decision.”

 

They said they have come to an “amicable decision” on all matters and asked for privacy.

 

It’s Lopez’s third marriage, Anthony’s second. The couple are parents to 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

 

Lopez’s last public appearance was at Saturday’s BAFTA event in Los Angeles with Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Tongues wagged when the singer/actress/American Idol judge turned up with her mother instead of her husband.

 

The split comes as a surprise to celebrity watchers. As recently as March, Lopez, 41, told USA TODAY that she and Anthony, 42, “challenge each other in a way that only the two of us could.It’s awesome.”

 

Last month, Anthony joked with USA TODAY about the cheeky rapport he and Lopez share with his Hawthorne co-star Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith. And in February, a grinning Lopez told E! Online, in front of her husband, that more kids were likely in the cards: “I think Marc would like to have more kids. We talk about it.”

 

No doubt fans will be combing the lyrics of her latest album, Love?, for clues. (Sample lyric: “I was down for the count, feeling like I’ve come to the end.”) Still, she told USA TODAY in March, “This is not a negative album in any way. It’s really a great dance-pop-urban album that talks about all of the different facets of love in all its glory and all its pain.”

 

Last year, Lopez told USA TODAY that the record “is such a big thing for me. The whole examination of love and what that is, the state of that today, I just feel the dialogue for that needs to be open. That’s kind of a little bit of my goal with this record.”

 

Back then, she talked about forging a professional identity separate from her husband, after being nearly inseparable from him for the past five years

 

“The first two years we were kind of in wedded bliss. The third and fourth year, we just did everything together. He produced my album. We did the movie. We went on tour. We had the babies. We just got to the point, after the babies were born, when we realized that he has a responsibility to his fans and I have a responsibility to my fans,” she says. “We still are two individual entities and artists, and we have to go off and do our things again.”

    why do i get the feeling this is chris martin and gwynnie paltrow? the work colleague would be the guy from glee.

    • ferrd69

      i like this guess.

      and i love your name! ;)

    • suedechik79

      the gay guy?

      ps didnt know there was a time limit on comments now. thats…cool.

      • escape2

        Don’t think Gywen and Chris have been together for a long time. Is that Glee guy straight??

        Could be
        Ben and Jen
        Courtney and David
        Jay Z and Beyonce

      • plum

        just saw Bennifer candids last week and jayZ/Beyoncé also and Cox/Arquette are yet broken

      • jenb

        I agree with gwen and chris.Beyonce won’t get a divorce yet because she has an album coming out and it would be messy. No doubt they will get a divorce, another celebrity marriage that seems more like a business arrangement than love, by Beyonce’s dad.

      • kellybelly

        He’s straight. He was sleeping with Olivia Munn, want he? And Cameron Diaz?

      • CrossingTheLine

        The glee guy is most definitely straight.

      • Alex

        Apparently he is straight indeed. I wish my gaydar could come to terms with that.

      • Caty1225

        Gwyneth or Chris – I wish.

        Of course, it could also be Courtney and David. He is a sleaze who would hook up with an escort and she is shacking up with the co-star who dated Jennifer Aniston.

      • jenb

        Don’t You mean with all her costars?lol

      • treyc

        I don’tk now why everyone thinks he is gay. He isn’t. He dated Chrishelle Strause from AMC and they got engaged. He was cheating on her with all kinds of women. One of those women? His costar in a play….. Leah Michelle.

      • smile83

        lea michele wasn’t in any play with matt morrison, before glee. they never had anything, this rummor is ridiculous.

    • jenb

      Let’s see if jlo is gonna run to p shiddy again.lol

    • jenb

      no surprise, isn’t skeletor controlling, abusive and a drug addict.

  • dallasJAC

    JLO and Mr. JLO??? JLO getting into her own Stephen Tyler PJ’s??? I can totally see her hubby with an escort.

    • No Kidding

      Great call! I just heard it myself on the radio today. And, you’re probably right about who they are dating too.

    • Queenie

      wasn’t there a line in this blind about pabst beer? Or was that another line about them? They had pabst beer at their wedding reception, and I knew that was a huge hint. Oh well, maybe it was another blind about them…

  • suedechik79

    katy perry and brand

    • Rden

      Yea, I think so too. I have seen an article where it said that she has been caught smooching with her producer.

  • dee123

    I like this guess. He’s been promoting Hop & Arthur & she’s about to go on tour.

  • Whatzmyname

    Courtney Cox and David Arquette

  • Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin? work colleague – Matthew Morrison

  • Ralphie

    I’m on board w the Courteney Cox and David arquette guess. She’s been rumored to be w both her Cougar Town costars and he would totally go for a former escort.

  • pepperk

    Fishsticks Paltro and Mr. goop

  • poghie72

    paramour=paramount
    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
    Tom has a long history and issues with paramount.
    Tom and Katie attended a wedding this weekend for Brad Grey (head of Paramount)
    That is really the only clue I see in the post.

  • msp96302

    Warren Beatty and Annette Benning

  • ladymarmalade

    Goopy and Coldplay. She is going to be even more insufferable as a SINGLE working mom.

    • ThinkerBelle

      You said it ladymarmalade. Between her “singing,” cookbook tour, appearances ruining Glee and her cries of how much she loves food I’ll poke my eye out with her stick straight hair.

  • BrightStar

    Heidi Montag and the Bachelor dude on their new “reality show.”
    Spencer Pratt and a male escort.

    Please, oh please, let this be true.

  • cocobeannns

    Kendra and Hank? …. Says celebrity couple, doesn’t specify them as actors/musicians.

  • lcl22

    IMO it’s Gwyneth & Chris she did an interview and said they ‘co-parent’ I don’t think any happily married couple uses that word.

    • oreily85

      Oh really?? Yeah thats an odd word to use! In light of this I agree its Goop and Mr Coldplay.

  • Scorpio13

    JayZ and Beyonce or Seal and Heidi (which I’m hoping not).

  • mehallokitty

    Courtney Cox and David Arquette, although Courtney swears she’s not cheating with her costar and David believes her. David was talking on Howard Stern last week about how they are not compatible and it doesn’t look good for them to get back together.

  • Queenie

    Tom & Katie- we’ve all been waiting for years for this one. I quit holding my breath light years ago. Is her contract up yet?
    Heidi and Seal- I hope not. Love all their kids, and how crazy they are about each other.
    Goop- Single Mother- yah, that’s going to be hard to swallow.
    Cox & Quette- lots of rumors there.
    Mariah/Nick- they can’t break up yet. Not until they profit from the sale of the baby pictures!
    Kendra/Hank- hope they make it.
    Warren and Annette- they’re almost old Hollywood, they probably have an agreement by now.
    Of course this is all personal conjecture.

  • dpoma

    Haven’t there been rumors about Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon?

  • ZixiofIx

    Demi & Ashton.

  • Grandma

    Paquin and Moyer….it’s a rumor that’s recently surfaced.

  • LooLoo

    We can’t get any other clues? Age range? A list? Actors, singers, reality stars?

  • kellyj

    Warren Beatty and Annette Bening – there were rumors they were splitting during awards season. I vote it’s them.

  • Vidalia Q Intrigue

    I’m on board with the Gwyneth and Chris guess. She was just on Rachael Ray promoting her cook book, and she mentioned practically everybody in her family (her late father, her brother, her kids) EXCEPT her husband. It was a pretty glaring omission.

    • yinyang

      That’s because she never talks about her personal relationships as it is none of our business! They never appear in public together by their choice! Unlike some celebs, she wants her relationship to be between her & Chris and not to be attacked by media! I respect that! So say what you want but I know for FACT that they are just fine! Media is making you believe otherwise !

      • Me Again

        Dang Gwyneth- who knew you trolled the gossip boards!

        Just kidding- just a joke.

        I think it’s Ben A. and Jennifer Garner. I couldn’t tell you why.

      • yinyang

        Funny me again! I am not GP! Can’t get into details but def not her!

  • boomboompow

    As much as I’d hate this to be the case, Jen Garner and Ben Affleck. She’s notorious for hooking up with colleagues (first husband, Michael Vartan, Ben), and he’s been the major guess for a lot of stripper/masseuses. Though, I’d so rather it was Goop and Chris.

  • Sammi

    I really have to ask, because this has been bothering me for a while. Why is Gwyneth Paltrow called Goop/Goopy? Is she dirty or something?

  • Chewy

    I think this is Gwyneth and Chris. Cindy Adams had a one liner in the NY Post today about their son Moses singing pop songs as opposed to Coldplay. I didn’t think anything of it until now…

    • What does that have to do with anything?

      • Chewy

        I thought it was a strange mention in a gossip column to report that Gwyneth’s son, Moses, does not sing his Dad’s music..that he sings pop songs instead. From many of the comments/guesses above, I inferred that Cindy Adams was hinting that Gwyneth was into Matthew M from Glee these days..as opposed to hubby Chris Martin.

  • crazycatlady

    So … is this JLo and Skeletor?

  • dee123

    I wonder what Ted will do with that blind….

  • GoesInCircles

    SO who is the co-worker…Steven Tyler???

  • FzFz

    I don’t think she’s dating anyone from AI. The work colleague is probably William Levy, he’s a Cuban actor and he was in her music video. He and his wife of eight years separated in May, like a month before Jennifer and Marc.

    • FzFz

      They shot the video together in like late April, BTW

    • Lassie

      Who? Never heard of him. If she’s so “terrified of the name of who she’s dating coming out”, this is a fail, I was expecting someone scandalous. Randy Jackson, LOL!

      • Elfie

        William Levy is famous in the latin community… Considered “The latin Brad Pitt”. Aparentlly he hooks up with every co worker of his…

      • FzFzFz

        She is terrified of the details about the person she’s dating, not the name specifically. The details of William Levy would be that he was married and could have left his wife for JLo after cheating with her. If it’s him.

  • La Llorona

    I knew they were gunna break up. Congrats Dallas.

  • Rock90210

    Yes, theoretically this blind could have been about a few couples – but the gossip-sphere has pretty much been alive that these two were headed for splitsville or something very ugly for a long time. Of course, that routine they did on the American Idol finale (where she dances all around him) is really pretty creepy right now.

    • Lassie

      I thought her dancing all around him was creepy DURING the show. Frankly, kind of embarrassing, like watching your mom dancing on a table…Now that the Richter 10 shock waves are subsiding, BG, could you move this item down and put newer ones on top? Time to pick up the pieces and move on with our lives!

  • GoesInCircles

    Many sources are saying it’s Levy. Dayum! He is sizzlin’ and a bit younger than JLo. Not as scandalous as Steven Tyler. :(

  • Pinkie2

    New to this forum…and a first time poster. I remember there being a blind about a split that was to be announced after the 4th of July. Does anyone remember. I tried to find the blind, but can’t :(
