“We have decided to end our marriage,” the American Idol judge and the Latin singer told People in a joint statement. “This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
The statement continues: “It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
The couple have been married since 2004 and have two 3-year-old twins, Emme and Max. This isn’t the first divorce for either party — Anthony was previously married to Miss Universe Dayanara Torres until they split in 2003, and Lopez was previously married to Ojani Noa and Cris Judd. She was also briefly engaged to Ben Affleck.
No word on what this means for their upcoming reality talent show ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen.
