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!

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.”
