Marc Anthony splits with wife after kissing J.Lo on stage: coincidence?

2016 has been a year of tragic losses. Not only have we lost so many beloved personalities, we’ve also seen the demise of a lot of celebrity relationships. The latest union that has seemingly drawn to an end is that of Latin singer Marc Anthony and his wife of two years, Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima. Sources close to the coupe confirmed to E! News that the pair have called it quits.

The 48-year-old singer the 28-year-old model were wed in 2014 in a private ceremony in the Dominican Republic. The two have had their share of ups and downs during their courtship, splitting briefly in 2013 before getting all kissy-face with each other again in Marc’s video for the song “Flor Pálida.” They got married a month later and, now, they are once again on the outs – and Marc’s famous ex may possible play a part in the split.

In the bad timing department, Marc gave ex-wife Jennifer Lopez a kiss onstage during Thursday’s Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas. The singers performed their duet “Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta,” after which Jennifer presented Marc with the Person of the Year Award. As she presented the award to her ex, they embraced and kissed. Shannon was not in attendance at the ceremony and Marc was not wearing his wedding ring. That’s a lot of coincidences, isn’t it?

Of course, there’s also Jennifer’s recent breakup with Casper Smart and the announcement that she and Marc were working on some new music together. Does all of this point to a possible romantic reunion for Marc and Jen? If you’re a J.Lo/Marc ‘shipper, you might want to take a moment. It appears to me that this is just two beloved performers collaborating. After initial reports of the smooch heard ’round the world, sources told TMZ that the crowd egged the singers on, chanting “beso” (the Spanish word for “kiss”) after the couple finished performing. Jennifer’s manager Benny Medina was quick to squash the rumors that there’s more than a professional relationship going on, telling TMZ that they are “absolutely, categorically, 100% not back together.”

I’m firmly #TeamMannon (that’s the best I could come up with for a couple name for Marc and Shannon). Marc and Jennifer are doing what they’re doing to please their fans, that’s all. I am glad they get along, especially for their adorable kids, and they do make some lovely music together. And that’s all.

    I don’t even know why he bothers getting married and having kids.

    • Loopy says:

      Lol right,why doesn’t he just do a Leo Dicap.

    • Danielle says:

      Maybe he likes kids? But for sure, he needs to stop getting married.

      • Chinoiserie says:

        I guess some people feel that men often do not want kids but have them since the woman wants them or something. And getting married if you have kids often makes sense for legal reasons and trying to keep the family together etc. Not that I am saying I think he has made the best choices, I just see why they might make sense for him.

    I know exactly what this comment says about me but I genuinely could never survive a marriage in which I followed JLo

    They have to realize they belong together

    • Jayna says:

      He was a rebound after Ben dumped her. She stayed in the marriage longer than she wanted to because she was too embarrassed to divorce again. Belong together?

      • Jezi says:

        She dated Marc long before she dated Ben. They’ve had an on Again off again thing for a long time. They got divorced because she claimed he was too controlling but I always see the spark between them and they have a great coparenting situation going. I could see them having a thing again but doubt if they will fully get back together. Who knows though.

  4. Lalu says:

    Jennifer looks great. I have never been a fan. But she just looks better every time I see her.

  5. Little Darling says:

    I would really dislike being in the holding pattern these two seem to be in.

  6. Crumpet says:

    I will never, for the life of me, understand the appeal to women of this man.

  7. trollontheloose says:

    have you seen the video where he thanks j Lo and says she’s like a sister and then J Low has the face of a dreadful moment, like she just took a cold shower but has to keep on smiling. J Lo plays the woman who is so desirable that her exes can’t help but come back to her.. She’s s a beautiful sexy woman but she plays with fire.

    If that pic is anything to go by, that’s how I kiss my nana….

  9. joannie says:

    What does anyone see in this guy?

  10. Cel2495 says:

    Plz put the video of the kiss… she looked confused and angry when he said he loves her like a sister or something like that. She was not expecting that I think.
