Three sources confirmed to E! News, who reported the breakup first, that the couple has ended their two-year marriage. De Lima and Anthony started dating in 2012, just months after J.Lo and the Boricua crooner confirmed the end of their seven-year marriage. De Lima and Anthony had a bit of a bumpy road. They split in 2013 and later reconciled and wed a year later.
While we don't know the cause of the 28-year-old Venezuelan model and Anthony's separation, there were several headlines that suggested that his close relationship with J.Lo didn't make Shannon feel comfortable.
A source told OK! recently, "Shannon understands that Jen will always be in Marc's life because of their kids, but she felt more secure with their bond when Jen was dating someone."
J.Lo did split from Casper Smart earlier this year and has been sharing a lot of studio time with her ex on her upcoming Spanish album. Perhaps it was all too much for De Lima to handle. "She worries she can't compete," the source also told the tabloid.
What we do know is that J.Lo and Marc are not back together. Her longtime manager Benny Medina confirmed to TMZ, that the exes are "absolutely, categorically, 100% not back together."
Only time will tell! Maybe this is all to promote Jennifer Lopez's Spanish-language album. No matter the reason, De Lima must be royally upset and disappointed. Although, maybe she should've seen it coming.
