Marc Anthony tells J.Lo to see a psychiatrist, since she’s happy without him

The last we heard about Marc Anthony, he was dating a young model type and posting photos of them together on Facebook. It was just as obvious a move as all the paparazzi photo ops that J.Lo has been staging with her much younger, facially challenged boyfriend, backup dancer Casper Smart, only J.Lo started it first. Well Marc and Jennifer aren’t getting along at this point, and they’re fighting over custody of their nearly four year-old twins. Radar has the news that Marc sniped at Jennifer that she needed to see a psychiatrist because she’s incapable of being alone.

The former couple had yet another fight over the weekend, with Marc complaining that he wanted to see their toddler twins more frequently.

“As always with things between Jen and Marc recently, the conversation quickly turned heated,” a source close to the situation tells “Jen said Marc wasn’t being attentive enough as their father, and Marc scoffed at that remark and said she was always changing her travel plans with the children at the last minute.

“The real source of Marc’s anger is Jen’s relationship with back-up dancer, Casper Smart. Jen is VERY serious about him, and it makes Marc extremely jealous. Marc told Jen that she [should] see a psychiatrist to deal with her issues to figure out why she always needs a man in her life. Remember, Jen and Ben [Affleck] had just broken up when she got hot and heavy with Marc. Jen’s relationship with Marc was the longest relationship she ever had with anyone, about seven and a half years.”

As previously reported, Marc is now dating sexy Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima and the two have been Tweeting up a love storm to each other. Marc wrote in Spanish to Shannon “To my @Shadelima my statue of liberty. Kisses, baby.”

The Latin crooner has told JLo though that her boyfriend, who has been arrested for drag racing and had warrants out for his arrest, is banned from driving their toddler twins, anywhere.

Even though Marc and Jennifer haven’t formally filed for divorce yet, the Latin superstar told the American Idol judge he would take legal action if she went against his instructions.

“This wasn’t a threat that Marc gave Jen. He will go straight to family court if he needs to get a judge involved to make sure Casper doesn’t get behind the wheel with his kids in the car,” the insider says.

Smart formally pleaded no contest last week to exhibition of speeding, and was sentenced to one year probation, and was ordered to pay a $500 fine.

I agree with Marc that a guy who was convicted of drag racing should not be driving with his kids in the car. Other than that he just sounds jealous. This “you need to see a psychiatrist” dig is the oldest line in the book. When a current or ex partner isn’t behaving in a way the other one wants (or when they want out) they often pull that “something’s wrong with you, you need to get professional help” line. It’s an easy way to place blame on the other person. In J.Lo’s case she may benefit from talking to someone about her need to be in a relationship, but I think she’s just sowing her oats and trying to feel sexy after being committed to one guy for the longest stretch in her life. When men do it, it’s normal, when women do it they’re crazy and need help. Gah I can’t believe I’m defending J.Lo. If she does end up marrying baby douche face, then I’ll concede that I was wrong and that she should have sought some kind of help.

    I’m no fan of JLo but that was a douche thing to say.

  2. David says:

    It seems she is incapable of being alone.

    • meme says:

      You’re exactly right and it’s damn sad.

    • Jezi says:

      I totally agree. She’s not been alone since she broke up with her first husband. Even though he’s not exactly waiting for the dust to settle either. Both need to see a psychiatrist but I definitely think he’s right about his kids and that boy toy driving them around.

    • anne_000 says:

      I’ve thought the same thing for years about what Marc is saying. She doesn’t seem to be capable of being single. She just jumps from one relationship into another, sometimes overlapping it seems just so that she won’t be alone after the present relationship ends. Also, she doesn’t seem to care who she gets with, so long as it’s somebody. Imo, Marc is correct in that she needs therapy to understand why she behaves this way.

    • lilred says:

      I seems he is also incapable of being alone.He did the same thing.

  3. Marjalane says:

    wow. good fun on celebitchy this morning! I think I have to agree with the corpsey-one. Jlo has hideous taste in men, (including M.A.) but this new boytoy doesn’t need to be anywhere near her kids. Maybe just some counseling for both of them.

  4. mln76 says:

    It’s a case of him being right for all the wrong reasons. Oh and I totally believe that he is abusive.

    • Rhiley says:

      I agree. He does seem controlling and abusive as she seems insecure and afraid to be alone. As long as she has been famous, she has never been alone, but neither has she been in a significantly long relationship. She is the George Clooney of ladies.

    • Kara Ann says:

      Succinct and correct! Thank you for articulating my thoughts so well.

  5. Asli says:

    Agreed. When women do something that is socially accepted for men to do because ‘oh, boys will be boys’ they’re crazy jealous hags.

    • Marjalane says:

      I don’t care if she has a boytoy, but this particular one has juvenile delinquent written all over him.

      • Asli says:

        Don’t get me wrong that boy is a creep and JLo may not be the best example because I do think Marc’s got a valid point. It’s just my biggest pet peeve and I get really worked up when people says it’s okay for guys to do one thing but not for girls to do the exact same thing! Probably because I grew up that way and HATED it! 😛

      • DarkEmpress says:

        I know! I would give her props if he were attractive! Also. Marc is a hypocrite since he is doing the same thing.

  6. Hautie says:

    As long as Jennifer has been in the celebrity business.

    She has had either a husband or boyfriend at all times.

    Even with them over hanging each other.

    Still having a husband while dating the new boyfriend. (cough*CrisJudd*cough*BenAffleck*cough)

    And as soon as Affleck dumped her, she was moved in with Marc Anthony.

    So Marc has a point. The girl does not sleep alone. Ever.

    Yet it is Jennifer’s right to be crazy. But I still find is amazing that she has been so public about dating down. And letting him around her kids from the very beginning.

  7. Toot says:

    Isn’t Marc basically the pot calling the kettle black? He hasn’t been alone either and moves from relationship to relationship just like Jennifer.

    He needs to sit his ass down and shut up. The only thing I will agree with is Casper not driving the twins around.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree with this.
      They’re both annoying and needy.

    • gg says:

      If he ever had any at all, he lost his credibility when he broadcast that idiot photo of him kissing his new 20-something piece. Shut up, Marc, and go back to that adulterous rock you live under. As embarrassing as Jennifer makes herself look, publicly flaunting her downgrade, he’s just as bad. he could’ve gained some moral high ground, but now he’s exposed himself to be just another immature person who never should have had kids, because he’s left trails of them all over creation after he abandons their mother. disgusting.

      This is why I fail to get excited when somebody like J-Ho gets pregnant with twins – they’re just going to be left and forgotten by at least one of their parents. Better off not being born, I’m afraid. These people are not parents, they are children themselves.

  8. Sara says:

    If she marries this guy she is a total loser with major self-esteem issues. If she thinks he will marry her because of love she is an idiot. Money and fame is all this d-bad sees in JLo.

    • gg says:

      She deludes herself to an extreme. They both need to be in therapy before they get involved with anybody again. They simply use people for their own egotism.

  9. Silk spectre says:

    They both have issues and need to see a psychiatrist!

  10. Liz says:

    I know Marc Anthony is a very traditional kind of guy. Likes his gender role delineated.

    Which does make it quite puzzling as to why he married J-Lo. And why she married him, for that matter – didn’t her first husband have serious problems with her success?

    In some ways, I can understand the “psychiatrist” remark. Divorces tend to be so devastating that it can seem incredible that anyone could *not* find it horrendous.

    Sometimes people leave emotionally long before they leave physically. I suspect that’s what Lopez did. For her ex, it’s both all new and a blow to his ego, so he’s knocked for six and lashing out.

    In his mind, it’s either that she needs psychiatric help, or that she checked out before the divorce and/or is genuinely happy to be free of him. Which would be easier to take?

    Not justifying it. Just trying to understand.

    Edit: Jessica is totally right. (I’m lazy and only skimmed this post.) I stand by what I said, but he does have a point. When has J-Lo ever been without a man?

  11. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Gollum is lookin good these days.

  12. Lizzy says:

    I remember from way back, some tv show that followed her around (maybe MTV cribs? Something like that) around the P-diddy time frame, and I distinctly remember her flat out telling the camera that she couldn’t be alone, it was an issue she had. So this isn’t really news to her.

  13. Nev says:

    he cheats on her and bosses her around and then he is throwing around advice and saying she needs to be alone.

    why didnt he just commit to his marriage and calm down his alpha male attitude?


  14. ladybert62 says:

    Your headline made me laugh out loud – this divorce is going to be hysterical with the name calling etc – they might even end up having a food fight!

    I feel sorry for the kids – but other than that, this one will be fun!

  15. danielle says:

    Huh, my bf got in trouble for drag racing in the past…yes, it’s stupid, but he’s not going to do it with anyone’s kids in the car! (of course, this was 10-15 years ago, not last week)

    • Toot says:

      Well, Casper’s drag racing issue happened in 2010, and finally got settled in court last week. He hasn’t got into trouble for it since then so hopefully it’s in his past too.

  16. Skinnybetch says:

    He looks really hungry. Is he manarexic or something.

  17. Petunia says:

    Darn it, she has a smokin’ body! And a lovely face. Whew.

    I think it’s a combination of jealousy and honesty. He’s right, she’s lost without a man. I hope her “relationship” is more for show and fun than seriousness because I can easily see her marrying this guy and then divorcing again in a few years. Her kids need more stability than that.

    That being said, who is Marc to talk? She was good enough to date when she was hot off another failed relationship, so he really is a hypocrite. And, um, he’s dating too and is sending embarrassing texts, to boot. He thinks his kids won’t see this one day?

    I think they both need to back off of the dating for a bit. Take it a bit slower and not put everything out there for the world to see because they have two kids who will see it all one day.

    Oddly enough, I think they still have feelings for each other but instead of working it out (which is hard, I admit it,) they’ve decided to divorce and keep the passion flowing through the bickering.

  18. lw says:

    I totally “get” wanting to have a casual fling after an intense divorce. But why not keep it far, far away from her kids?
    And how do you heal when you jump from relationship to relationship? How do you not repeat the same mistakes over and over? Bizarre.

    • Blue says:

      That’s an excellent point. Therapy might not be a bad idea. You can’t learn from your mistakes if you won’t take the time to stop and think about them. I think she moves on quickly so she doesn’t have time to be sad and think about the failure of the relationship. It’s not going to be healthy for her kids, especially her daughter to see that example.

  19. Embee says:

    My God she has bad taste in men.

  20. Jover says:

    And what would a psychiatrist discover – a monstrously inflated ego wrapped around a vacant human being – David, she’s afraid of being alone because she has no interior life, no interests, etc., turning your entire life and those around you into a cash grab isn’t an interest, it’s a sickness.

  21. whatevs says:

    ugh he looks inhumane. he’s the reason why i started rooting for jlo for the 1st time actually

  22. Renee says:

    It annoys me that home skillet couldn’t be bothered to tie his shoes.

  23. madeline7 says:

    Marc’s been two-faced. When he was at odds with Jen, – he’d be quick to take off his ring and go out to the clubs, although he knew it upset her. He’s really no different. Yet I never read anything about her leaving him and the twins that way. Eventually, she started tossing his belongings out with him. After they separated, he had his pick of female company, while the press fell all over themselves,trying to drum up sympathy. There were also rumors of affairs with a Mexican model, and a singer & telenovela actress. They both need counseling. Even if they decide to divorce, – at least they’d learn more about themselves, each other, and what they really need!

  24. mya says:

    I also think she actually does need a psychiatrist.she has issues and has no talent she has used everyone to get where she is.I seriously don’t know how she made it this far.shes a bad actress can’t sing.when i hear her on the radio my ears don’t wanna hear her whiney voice.She’s always got a man.and she didnt get with George Clooney because he didnt find her attractive at all.I also don’t see it.100 people were asked what she is best known for and 2 of the answers people gave weren’t even on there. which were her movies and her music..her ASS of course was the number one answer.she does have issues.can’t handle rejection..glad Ben got smart and dumped that nasty hoe..and got himself a gorgeous,respectful woman.

  25. Nia says:

    Marc Anthony’s got a whole lot of nerve! He jumped right into a relationship with JLo after her intense breakup with Ben Affleck, and what makes it so bad is that he was still legally married and abandoned his own wife and little kids (a 2-year old and a 9-month old baby). He flew to the Dominican Republic and divorced his wife overnight, and married JLO 4 days later. That was really lowdown of Marc, and of JLO for going along with it. Both of them are self-centered egomaniacs that care more about their needs than that of the children they have had. Marc had no problem walking out on his 1st born children, and if he doesn’t get JLO back, I’m sure it will be the same with the kids he had with her.
