Are Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez planning a post Valentine’s day split?

According to the NY Daily News, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are not only completely over, they’ve made plans to have one final duet Valentine’s Day duet together on stage before announcing their impending divorce. How romantic:

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may have renewed their wedding vows a mere three months ago, but their rocky romance will likely bite the dust right after Valentine’s Day, says an insider.

“Marc and Jennifer are planning on announcing their divorce right after Marc’s show at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 14,” a friend of the couple tells us. “Jennifer is planning on joining Marc onstage for a surprise duet. Things haven’t been right for a while now, and they thought it would be a bittersweet farewell.”

Definitely one for theatrics in arenas, J.Lo confessed her pregnancy at a sold-out show in Miami during her El Cantante tour in November 2007 and will employ the same shock value a second time around.

“They’re definitely planning a clean break in February,” the source insists.

[From The NY Daily News]

I’ll believe it when it’s confirmed. These two don’t strike me as the type to be able to amicably plan out a date to announce their separation. You would think they would struggle to make it work for a while longer before setting a date seven weeks in the future to go public with the news. Maybe they’re living apart or something at this point and see it as a way to make a clean break. It’s surprising they’ve lasted four and a half years as it is.

The National Enquirer claims on the cover of the latest issue that “J.Lo’s Husband Runs to Ex-Wife” with the subtitle “secret night in hotel after marriage explosion.” Their only evidence is the news that Marc was at his ex’s house “until the early hours of the morning” and then stayed at the Four Seasons afterwards – by himself. He has two children with his ex wife Dayanara and it’s possible he was visiting them. If everything was well with Lopez though he probably would have returned home afterwards as Dayanara is said to live “nearby.” He also flew to NY for a little partying the very next day. Trouble seems to be brewing between these two whether or not they’re officially planning to split in February.

    Well I for one am shocked. If these two crazy kids can’t make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us?!

  2. mel says:

    I figured something was wrong with their marriage since we havent seen them with the kids in public for awhile. Another bollywood couple bites the dust. Surprised, not!

  3. RReedy says:

    Two big egos collide. End of story.

  4. Persistent Cat says:

    Can we just skip to making fun of his coat? Cuz that’s an awful coat. And it’s night and he’s wearing sunglasses. Oh, and his shirt is very unbuttoned and he’s wearing a big chain. Oh more pictures of him, please oh please oh please.

    Her shoes are intriguing me.

  5. HEB says:

    I think it would be cool if Jordan Bratman started a dating service for divas that provides supportive, submissive men with no egos to date these women

  6. DD says:

    He’s trying to make the pimp look work for him, it’s his only chance.

  7. Valerie says:

    He’s a total nacho cheeseball and she’s almost as awful as Madonna. Bad combination of personality types at work there so bound to be combustible.

  8. jennifer says:

    OK THIS is the kind of gossip I’ve been missing!!! None of this “let’s have fight #4,561,223 over Aniston vs Brange”, NO! Planning a divorce announcement weeks from now, ON STAGE…SINGING A DUET TO COMMEMORATE THE DIVORCE…now THAT’S the kind of gossip I LOVE! Ludicrous, but totally believable because celebrities are so f*cked up gossip! I LOVE IT LOL! XD

  9. ThatBKChick says:

    You know nothing these two do can ever be done without publicity? Normative couples just split up and not put pretty bows and media circus coverage around something painful as a breakup/divorce…these two are obviously are not thinking about their children!

    Oh well so much from being “Jenny from the Block” it looks like she will be taking the two bambino’s and moving back on the block and join the rest of real world people!

  10. Sunnyjyl says:

    That coat is way awesome!!!! Dreadful, but awesomely so. LOL

  11. barneslr says:

    Well, she got her babies out of the marriage. Why stay with him any longer, right? I mean, that’s all she was really interested in to begin with.

    And considering this is marriage #3 and it is a celebrity marriage, the only surprise here is that it has lasted this long.

  12. HotMess says:

    She just needs to go back to Diddy

  13. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa says:

    I don’t get how this stuff happens to celebs… everyone I know in “real life” who gets divorced goes through a very painful process. How could they just sing a song to commemorate it and then say “take care now! bye bye then!” I agree with jennifer above – it’s a welcome change to see anything that’s not a JA v AJ argument! wheeee!

  14. Baholicious says:

    Kills me how these people claim to love their children so much and then can’t be bothered to work on a marriage for the sake of their children. I mean these aren’t people with money worries or coming home from a 12-hour shift at the factory or Tim Horton’s. I mean divorced, for what? Is he a drinker and/or abusive? Don’t like the other’s face at the moment? One can fly to St. Tropez, the other somewhere else, and blow the stink off for a while. The majority of couples don’t have that luxury and manage to keep things together. Just because you get ‘tired’ of somebody is no reason to end a marriage. That’s not what marriage is. Frankly, it could be said it’s not really a marriage UNTIL you’re tired of each other – LOL!

  15. Syko says:

    The whole idea of setting a date for your breakup bothers me. I can remember when MY marriage ended, it was with sobs and a few slamming doors and a lot of emotion, and I think most people get very emotional about the end of a marriage. So how can you coldly set a date two months in the future and say “we’ll sing one last song together and then see ya!”

    As for not liking anyone’s face any more, I am not sure how she could ever like his in the first place, and probably if anyone is not liking a face, it’s him not liking that slit-eyed, slightly open mouth look she seems to be assuming more and more, possibly because that seems sultry to her. And getting your kids? I’d much rather do the turkey baster thing with a total stranger than to think of crawling into bed with that little worm.

  16. susan says:

    well said, Baholicious. Amen!

  17. neelyo says:

    I always figured Lopez would rival Liz Taylor in marriages so I’m not surprised. But this story sounds pretty preposterous though hilarious.

  18. Leandra says:

    They’re probably just dead sick of each other. It happens….a lot. This is why marriage is not such a great idea as after all it’s still a “relationship” and lots of them end because the two in it aren’t feeling it anymore. At least without the piece of paper, it’s easy to get out.

  19. RAN says:

    Jennifer lol! *smile* – well said.

  20. Buttercup says:

    Well said Syko (as usual! :-)), Baho and Jennifer! spot on.

  21. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa says:

    I second Susan’s AMEN to Baholicious and, Syko, THAT’S more like what I would expect the end of a marriage to be!
    Leandra, marriage is more than just a “relationship”. It actually has a lot of really amazing bits and pieces to it, more than just the piece of paper. But if the marry-ers are looking for an easy get out, then I agree that it’s not a great idea.

  22. Enonymous says:

    Oh please, the main reason, if not the only reason that J.LO did not wear her wedding ring to the The Curious Case of Benjamin Button premiere was because she wanted to finally generate some free publicity after everything went dead calm for her and skeletor. It was obvious by the way she strategically placed her left hand in front when posing for pictures so everyone can see for sure she was not wearing anything. This is just a way for both of them, especially for J.LO to get people talking again about her, particularly now that she is starting to work again and making movies.

    I have no doubt that they will eventually divorce, but their first priority it seems now is to make as much noise as possible and make it into a big deal so it will get people to notice them and get interested in them again.

  23. vdantev says:

    Why wait that long? She needs to GTH away from Skeletor the Control Freak while people still remember her name.

  24. pak31 says:

    I agree with others here too. If they did truly set a date to announce their split, that’s pathetic. They haven’t been together that long have they? They recently have kids and she was so happy at that time, now it’s over?? I don’t get it.

  25. Baholicious says:

    It’s nice they’ve set a date though. Does anyone know if they’ve rented the hall yet?

  26. Granger says:

    Baholicious, I totally agree! I’ll never understand how actors (I use the term loosely where these two are concerned, of course) can have so much trouble staying married. If anyone should be able to last, it’s an actor.

    1. You get to make out with hot co-stars when you’re working, so you never have to wonder what it would be like to have that “first kiss feeling” again.

    2. You have more money than God and can take vacations whenever you want to relax and put some spice back into your relationship.

    3. That same money makes it possible for you to hire a nanny for regular date nights out at fancy restaurants — instead of slouching on the stained couch in your messy family room that you’re too tired to tidy up, watching yet another mindless rental, and sipping from your cheap bottle of wine — all after FINALLY getting the kids to bed after a chaotic bath routine. But I’m not speaking from experience.

    There’s just no freakin’ excuse for not having the best marriage in the world!

    I’ll never understand it…

  27. Codzilla says:

    Persistent Cat: You read my mind. What is UP with those threads? That outfit is nearly grounds for divorce all on its own.

  28. paris herpes says:

    Why do they think anyone cares enough so they need to announce it at one of her lame concerts anyway? Famewhores!

  29. MB Travis says:

    Maybe people just shouldn’t get married at all anymore. No marriage, no divorce.

  30. Gigohead says:

    Funny, but there seems to be a lot of tickets still available for Marc’s show. I was hoping to go but the 100 bucks are nose dive seats. So it’s a ploy to get people to buy tickets. LOL

  31. PJ says:

    If they want to split, why don’t they just go ahead and split? Why wait till February? This doesn’t make sense to me.

  32. Shay says:

    Although I think Jennifer seems to gravitate towards drama this story sounds far fetched. I understand waiting celebs do it all the time. Maybe they have a project they don’t want effected by bad press. I just don’t get the let’s go on stage and sing together and then announce it. That just sounds silly.

  33. lway says:

    Celebs like these two really work on my nerves. Put your sh*t aside and work on your marriage. Nobody said it’s easy and having babies is definitely no boost to the relationship – in fact, problems often arise at this point.

    I agree. He thinks that he is the BOMB and she is (as usual) the victim … needs a big man to come and save her, as the little man no longer can – pathetic.

    Makes me sick –

  34. dovesgate says:

    Baholicious has definitely hit the nail on the head.

    With money, its way too easy to get your own space or get out of the house or whatever it takes to get that spark back. Unless there is some abuse (whether its against a person or drugs or alcohol) going on, why not try to work it out?

  35. kate says:

    i think the only lasting relationship jennifer can have is with her mirror.

  36. Ter says:

    Well damn them IF this is just a ploy. I am sick to death of the celebrities yanking everyone around so that they can make a buck a la Madonna. They can suck it, either you get by on your talent or you don’t, this manipulation for profit is B***Sh*T!

  37. lvee says:

    I can’t believe that people are actually taking this crap of a made up story and giving it credit. It is so far-fetched that I can’t believe people are buying this. First of all, I know for a fact that “announcing” their divorce at a concert is the last thing they would do especially since Marc NEVER speaks about his private life. This is all hogwash. A completely fabricated and ridiculous rumor

  38. madeline7 says:

    Ivee, I agree with you. I feel like some of the press is forcing this. How fast some people latched onto a stupid rumor. Jen & Marc’s two babies turn one year old next month. From what I see, they are a wonderful couple. Parenting is an adjustment, and they had twins, so that’s a challenge, but they’ll get through it too – like everyone else. She used to be a quitter – never made to a 1st wedding anniversary (not counting if separated or almost divorced! ) until this time with her marriage to Marc. That’s why I feel they’re a good match and they’re both committed. Otherwise, she’d be long gone. This June will be their 5th wedding anniversary.
