Report: Marc Anthony Wanted to Reconcile With Jennifer Lopez
Although it didn't come as a surprise to hear that Marc Anthony had finally filed from divorce from Jennifer Lopez last week, after the two separated nine months ago, there's a new wrinkle to the ongoing Marc-J.Lo relationship saga. Though Marc is currently dating Venezualan model Shannon de Lima, and Jennifer is seeing her uber-caliente backup dancer Casper Smart, new reports indicate that Marc may have attempted to reunite with Jennifer before the divorce was finalized.
According to TMZ, Marc and Jennifer had a "heart-to-heart" several weeks ago where they discussed the possibility of reconciling, which Marc had hoped to do. But Jennifer told him that she was too in love with Casper to think about going back to him — and that final nail in the coffin is what prompted Marc to file for divorce. Additionally, TMZ says, Marc was "blindsided" and "hurt" by the news.
Over their eight years of marriage, the power couple worked together on many business ventures on which they will continue to collaborate, and they'll be sharing custody of their two children. While we're bummed to hear that it's officially over, at least both Jen and Marc seem to be in the process of moving on — and having the gorgeous eye candy of their respective new partners around can't hurt!
