Jennifer Lopez Marc Anthony Miami Dolphins, Entertainer Jennifer Lopez and Latin singer Marc Anthony – a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins – have “decided to end our marriage,” the couple said Friday in a statement.
“This was a very difficult decision,” said the statement, which was released through Lopez’s representative Mark Young. “We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
The couple wed in 2004, in what was the third marriage for Lopez and the second for Anthony, who’d been married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres.
The Bronx-born Lopez, who first rose to fame as a dancer and later became a celebrated singer and actress, gave birth to twins fathered by Anthony in 2008. Anthony is himself an award-winning singer, while Lopez released her seventh album this spring titled “Love?”.
“Everything is great about my marriage,” the “American Idol” host told Latina magazine early this year. “First and foremost, we love each other, truly love each other in a way that’s very deep and meaningful, not in a superficial sort of way. There’s a deep respect, admiration and love for each other.”
In 2009 Anthony joined Grammy-winning singer Gloria Estefan and her producer husband, Emilio Estefan, as a minority owner of the Dolphins, he’ll also help the NFL celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month this fall.
Anthony and his wife, singer-actress Jennifer Lopez, joined Dolphins owner Steve Ross to make the announcement in New York. The couple were given Dolphins jerseys with the numbers 16 and 24 representing their birthdays (Anthony’s for Sept. 16; Lopez’s July 24).
“What was interesting was you couldn’t help but be a Miami fan, it’s almost like America’s team,” Anthony said at the announcement. “Being born and raised here in New York, East Harlem, you’d think Jets or Giants, but you were always aware of the Miami Dolphins and what [Dan] Marino was doing.”
Financial terms were not disclosed and Anthony’s specific role with the team is unclear, but the Dolphins owner was counting on his celebrity co-owners to help re-brand the Dolphins as a winning team with an entertaining game-day atmosphere.
Ross said he met Anthony when he got a call from a lawyer inquiring about his search for investors and suggested a meeting with the singer.
“Just listening to Marc, his enthusiasm … he really has great ideas,” Ross said.
Anthony and Lopez embarked on numerous other professional partnerships as well, from singing duets to fashion lines at Kohl’s department store.
They also have been working together on a reality show called “Q’ Viva! The Chosen,” in which Lopez and Anthony travel around Latin America looking for talent.
