Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have ended their marriage. After the sudden announcement that their seven year marriage is over, rumors of a new post-Marc Anthony romance for Jennifer Lopez are already emerging.
The “American Idol” judge is speculated to be getting cozy with her Cuban “I’m Into You” music video mate William Levy – who also recently ended his marriage with Mexican actress Elizabeth Gutiérrez.
Upon splitting with Levy, Miss Gutiérrez released a statement reading: “I was always firmly by William’s side, despite the persistent rumors…I had no reason to doubt the strength of our union. I confess that this decision hasn’t been easy but I owe respect to myself as a person, woman and mother.”
Following suit, Lopez and Anthony released a statement on Friday night, which told: “This was a very difficult decision. It is a painful time for all involved. And we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
With Jennifer and Marc making the decision just hours before Miss Lopez paid a solo visit to the BAFTA Brits to Watch event to meet Prince William and Kate Middleton, the new reports linking Lopez and Levy seem to be more speculation than fact based – as the two haven’t been photographed together since their steamy Mexico-based “I’m Into You” music video efforts.
Aside from post-divorce love life gossip, recent reports tell that J Lo and Marc will continue forth with their upcoming reality talent show, “Q’Viva! The Chosen.”
A spokesman for XIX Entertainment told Deadline that the divorcing duo are “committed” to the show, adding, “The show goes on!”
