Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony to divorce
Jennifer Lopez and her husband Marc Anthony have announced they are to divorce.

The couple have ended their marriage after seven years. "We have decided to end our marriage, this was a very difficult decision," they said in a statement. "We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."

The divorce is Lopez's third and her husband's second, reports BBC News.



Lopez and Anthony toured together and starred in the 2006 film El Cantante, a biopic of Puerto Rican singer Hector Lavoe.

The couple had also announced plans to star in a television show together, Q'Viva! The Chosen earlier this year.

Lopez recently appeared as a judge on American Idol and released her comeback album 'Love?' in April, which featured the chart topping hit 'On The Floor'.
