Why Did Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima Break Up?
The romance is over for Marc Anthony and his girlfriend of one year, Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima.
The single mom was Marc’s first official g-friend since his split from Jennifer Lopez in July 2011. Marc and Shannon announced their romance around this time last year, and at one point it looked like they might be getting serious. According to Us Weekly, Anthony's son Chase even tweeted, "To all my followers and all my Twitter peeps, follow the best couple of 2012 and for many years, Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima!"
But it’s over now. "Marc is no longer dating model Shannon de Lima," his rep Blanca Lasalle told People. "The amicable breakup became official right in mid-January."
Why did they split? A source told People, "The truth is they have been having a great time together, but it no longer worked. Marc is in a good place. Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don't."
"No longer worked" can mean any number of things. It’s always sad when a couple splits, but Marc, 44, seemed pretty lucky to land a date with the reportedly 24-year-old model to begin with.
