Marc Anthony files for divorce from Jennifer Lopez
LOS ANGELES — Marc Anthony has made his breakup from Jennifer Lopez official by filing for divorce in Los Angeles.
The singer filed his petition Monday to end the marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
The pair announced they were ending their marriage in June after seven years. They have twin children together, and Anthony is asking for joint custody.
It is Anthony’s second marriage. Lopez had been married twice before when the couple wed in 2004.
Anthony has delved into acting and producing in recent years. The singers have intertwined their careers over the years, appearing in both a movie and a reality television series together.
Lopez has seen her career rebound since joining “American Idol” as a judge.
The divorce filing was first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
