Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony to divorce

Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony split up

Forget whether Jennifer Lopez will be getting back on "Idol" -- what's not up for speculation is that Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony will be getting a divorce.

"We have decided to end our marriage," they said Friday in a joint statement first reported by People. "This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters."

The couple, parents to 3-year-old fraternal twins Max and Emme, were married in a low-key 2004 ceremony at her Beverly Hills home. They had renewed their vows in 2008, and again last year. The "American Idol" judge even brought her hubby to work more than once, capping the show's season with a hot joint performance featuring Sheila E. on drums (see the video below).

This was the second marriage for Anthony and the third for Lopez, who before hooking up with longtime friend Anthony also was engaged to Ben Affleck; "Bennifer" broke up in 2003. She also famously dated Sean "P. Diddy" Combs for a couple of years back in the day. Anthony and Lopez were married days after his divorce was finalized.

They added Friday that this was a "painful time for all involved," and asked that their privacy be respected.

So, wow, that's one way to steal the ol' Carmageddon spotlight. Not to mention shed light on why J.Lo went stag to meet the royals at the "Brits to Watch" event last weekend. Guess Maria Shriver had dibs on the Friday heading into the 4th of July weekend?
