Superstar singer and actress Jennifer Lopez say that she will separate from her husband, Marc Anthony-a musician. After seven years of marriage, the couple has decided the course of divorce.
They revealed in the statement, “This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters,” further adding, “It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.” The couple had dated briefly in the 1990s but revived their romance in 2004 when they were married through a secret ceremony at Lopez’s Beverly Hills home. Both are parents of 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, who were born in February 2008.
