Estranged couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony put on a united front as they celebrated the live finale of their TV talent show on Saturday night (26May12), but Marc’s cringeworthy attempt to smooch his ex wife made for awkward viewing.
J-Lo and the Latino singer Marc ended their seven-year marriage last year, and in April Anthony moved to make their separation official by filing for divorce.
But despite their split, the pair pushed forward with their earlier plans to shoot reality series Q’Viva! The Chosen this spring, and together the two toasted the programme’s last episode at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The pair walked out onto the stage hand-in-hand, proiving that they remain on good terms.
Both Jennifer and Marc showcased seperate performances, but they reunited on stage at the end of the evening to share a tender embrace. However, Marc took the friendly hug a step to far by trying to kiss his former wife in front of the audience. Jennifer awkwardly avoided the kiss, but the embarrassment on her face was plain for all to see.
Somewhat tellingly, Marc has also kept his wedding ring on, despite being single now for over ten months. Jennifer, meanwhile, has moved on with her toyboy lover, dancer Casper Smart.
Later that night, the beauty met up with Casper to celebrate the release of her new single Goin’ In at nearby nightclub Hyde Bellagio.
Reports today have suggested that Enrique Iglesias will join Jennifer Lopez on a co-headline world tour.
Jennifer and Enrique will allegedly spend most of May rehearsing for the string of gigs and are expected to play over 60 dates across the world. A source told Celebuzz: “J.Lo and her team have blocked out more than a month of their schedules, beginning May 4, to start intense rehearsals, each day, at a sound stage in the Los Angeles area. This will be a huge tour, complete with a lavish set, full band and team of dancers.”
The world tour will be Jennifer’s first and will start in South America in June. It will then move on to North America in July, before hitting Asia and Europe later in the year.
Jennifer recently told how she is still trying to get over her split from Marc Anthony, saying: “Without going into detail… it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.” Jennifer’s current boyfriend and dancer, Casper Smart, is said to have choreographed routines for the shows.
Jennifer and Enrique recently teamed up for duet ‘Mouth 2 Mouth’, which featured on a repackaged version of Enrique’s Euphoria album.
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has spoken out in defence of her manager Benny Medina, after it was claimed that he had criticised the singer. Jennifer stated that she had been in the entertainment industry for long enough to realise that the press can often take someone’s comments out of context.
Lopez explained, “I know Benny and he’s like my best friend, like I said, my creative soulmate. I know the way he says things and I know he would never say anything that would be hurtful to me in any way.”
She added, “So things can be taken out of context and, you know, I’ve done interviews for a long time. You have to just know what is going to be misconstrued, let’s say. I trust [Medina] completely.”
Jennifer Lopez recently admitted that it can be quite difficult raising children, especially when you add the fact that she is split from her children’s father Marc Anthony. However, Jennifer admits that Marc has been fantastic and has helped her more than anybody could ever imagine.
Do you think Jennifer Lopez is right to defend her manager or do you think he actually meant what he said?
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has revealed how she still finds it saddening that her relationship with Marc Anthony, who she has two children with, did not work out. Jennifer admitted that they are still working through things and she is very proud of how grown up both she and Marc have been about it.
Lopez explained, “Without going into detail… it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.”
Jennifer then went on to admit that she is very proud of herself and Marc for the way that they have handled the whole situation. She added, “But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we’re handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids.”
Lopez continued, “It’s very dignified and trying to be above all the emotions and pain that come along with a divorce and a family breaking apart. This is grown-up stuff. It’s real, serious, grown-up stuff.”
Lopez explained, “They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them…And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well.”
She added, “That requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!” Jennifer then admitted that her ex husband Marc Anthony has been vital in building her self confidence.
Lopez continued, “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”
The full interview is in the April edition of Vogue magazine.
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has claimed that she believes that America can never have too many stars and that the more stars America have, the better. Jennifer also discussed her new show Q’Viva! The Chosen, which sees her working with her ex husband Marc Anthony.
Lopez explained, “I don’t think you can ever have enough stars! It’s a lot of fun. I love music, it’s just a different kind of thing to do with music. We just have a good time. I love Steven and Randy and we have a lot of fun on the show. They are long days, we see a lot of people, some are good, some are not, but it’s always interesting. So many different people from so many different cities with so many different stories. Everybody is just different.”
She added, “It’s fun because we know each other so well and we work well together, but it has its moments. The same things that kind of… didn’t really work sometimes come up. Communication, just like you’re talking and you don’t agree and then you’re like, ‘Be quiet!’ Things like that! You’ll see it on the show, a little bit!” You can currently see Jennifer Lopez as a judge on the Fox show American Idol.
It has been reported that singer, actress and all round entertainer, Jennifer Lopez is looking to marry her boyfriend Casper Smart sooner rather than later. It is believed that once Jennifer’s divorce from Marc Anthony is finalised, she wants to get married to Casper Smart straight away. However, not everybody is happy about the idea, especially her mother and sister.
A friend explained, “Jennifer never does anything half-way, especially relationships. This thing with Casper is no different. She told him that as soon as the divorce goes through, she wants to run away with him and get married.” The insider added, “Guadalupe thinks Jennifer has lost her mind. She’s outraged that Jennifer is giving Casper an allowance and showering him with gifts.”
The source continued, “Both Guadalupe and J.Lo’s younger sister, Lynda, are begging her to take a step back, if only for the sake Max and Emme.” Jennifer Lopez is set to return to her chair as one of the judges, along with Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, of American Idol which is set to return to Fox for it’s eleventh season on Wednesday, January 18 at 8/7c.

“[Smart] dances at Club Boulevard in L.A.,” an insider told the website. “[He’s] popular with the ladies because he goes shirtless!” Lopez has been seeing the dancer for a couple of weeks, though a second source has claimed their relationship is “nothing serious”.

It has been reported that Jennifer Lopez was spotted leaving her apartment building in New York, followed by a mystery man, who then joined her in her car. Jennifer was full of smiles as she got into the car but the mystery man seemed to want to keep his identity hidden.
Jennifer Lopez male companion had his hood up over his head and was wearing sunglasses to stop anybody from identifying his face. It has sparked reports that Jennifer Lopez is dating again, following her divorce from her husband Marc Anthony.
Jennifer Lopez has been in the press quite a bit as of late and the American Idol judge recently showed that the Jennifer Lopez bikini body is still looking great at 42. Whether or not Jennifer Lopez is dating this mystery man, we do not know but it is good to see her with a smile on her face.
American Idol judge and singer Jennifer Lopez has revealed why her relationship with Marc Anthony did not work and has given advice on how to make a relationship last. Jennifer believes that the key to having a successful relationship is to learn to love yourself first.
Lopez explained, “I think I’ve finally learnt the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”
Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony split back in July of this year and have since divorced. Jennifer recently broke down in tears on stage and while many believed it to be because of her failed marriage, Lopez claims that it had nothing to do with it.
Singer Jennifer Lopez broke down in tears on stage recently and while many claimed it was due to her broken marriage to Marc Anthony, Jennifer has given her own reasons. Lopez claims that she was simply acting out her thoughts from the song for the audience.
She explained, “You know what it was? I was standing there and I realised that I did bear a little bit of my thoughts in this song and I acted it out kind of for the audience. And the way they received it was very touching. I think that they felt what I felt, which was that I’m just a girl like everyone else.”
Jennifer Lopez recently revealed how she loves her American Idol co judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler and that they are both like brothers to her. Watch the video of Jennifer Lopez breakdown in tears, below and let us know your thoughts on it.
Jennifer Lopez is telling friends that she did not break down on stage Saturday night because of Marc Anthony. She is instead claiming that she choked up because she was thinking about her kids.
During part of her performance at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, she sang “Until It Beats No More” and several dancers dressed as men from her past (Diddy, Cris Judd, and Ben Affleck) appaeared on stage and Jennifer teared up, telling the crowd, “I took a trip down memory lane.”
Now, sources are telling TMZ that Jennifer is claiming it wasn’t her exes who brought her to tears, but a picture of the singer and her babies that was displayed on the jumbo-tron during her performance. Apparently the photo, shot for a Gucci advertisement campaign last fall, has some serious sentimental value to J.Lo, and when she saw the image during an already emotional performance, it pushed her over the edge. The singer gave birth to her twins, Max and Emme, in 2008, and their Father is now J.Lo’s estranged hubby Marc Anthony.
