Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima are heading to a divorce. The couple released a statement on Sunday, in which they announce their plans to go their separate ways, after only two years of marriage.
It took Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima only 2 years or marriage to reach the conclusion that they don’t really work out as husband and wife. The singer and his wife released a statement on Sunday, announcing their official split and their plans to file for divorce. “After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two-year marriage. We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter”, their statement read. Pretty classical.
48-year-old Anthony was rumored to have separated from 28-year-old de Lima since November, after the singer was seen with no wedding ring on his finger at the Latin Grammy Awards. At the same event, he exchanged a friendly kiss with his former wife Jennifer Lopez, which added to the speculation.
Last week, Marc Anthony’s father, Felipe Muñiz, revealed to Dando Candela from Telemundo Puerto Rico that the two had not filed for divorce at the time. However, he admits to his son having marriage problems. “He’s going through tough times right now, but he knows how to accept what comes out of this”. He also confirmed that the kiss between Marc and J Lo was a publicity stunt.
This is Marc Anthony’s third divorce. The Latin singer’s first marriage was with Miss Universe 1993 Dayanara Torres Delgado, 42. They wed in 2000 and divorced in 2004. That same year he tied the knot with Jennifer Lopez, 47, only to divorce in 2014. And again, with no year break, in 2014 he married Shannon de Lima.
