Marc Anthony files for divorce from Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony has put the legal machinery in motion, officially filing for divorce from Jennifer Lopez.

In the petition, filed Monday with the Los Angeles Superior Court, Anthony seeks dissolution for "irreconcilable differences," along with joint physical and legal custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

As for the money? Well, that's to be determined, as Anthony "has not yet determined the full nature and extent of his separate assets and debts," according to divorce documents obtained by TMZ. Legal costs are to be paid by the separate parties, and he's suggesting she not seek spousal support.

The couple announced their split last July, making it two failed marriages for him and three for her.

Since then Lopez, 42, has moved on with dancer Casper Smart, who celebrated his 25th birthday recently by receiving a customized truck as a gift from his lady friend. Anthony, 43, and Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima went public with a relationship earlier this year.

Anthony and Lopez continue to work together on "Q'Viva," searching for new Latin American talent.

Jennifer Lopez gets sexy with Casper Smart -- and the Easter Bunny

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart get down in her new video

Jennifer Lopez is vying for multitasker of the week, given the activities she's indulged in over the last few days: the release of a super-sexy music video, date night with boyfriend Casper Smart and a stop to see the Easter Bunny.

Indeed, "Dance Again," Lopez's uptempo track with rapper Pitbull, has been on lots of lips thanks to its sexual content and its co-star: Smart himself.

The video sees Lopez and Smart bump-and-grinding in an anti-gravity hotel suite, and in another scenario enjoying some high-fashion bondage, securing each other with a blindfold reading "Love is blind."

Some critics think the clip is too hot for TV, but the Ministry isn't fazed. In fact, it's nice to see that Smart is working with some decent moves, as his day job is that of a dancer.

Following their video romp, Lopez and Smart went for lighter fare Thursday, taking her and Marc Anthony's twins for a visit to see the Easter Bunny. Hitting up L.A. shopping mecca the Grove, Lopez rocked a white track suit and toted her kids by the hand to the furry candy creature.

A quick change ensued and the kids were passed off as Lopez and Smart stuck around for a date night, walking just a few hundred feet to the Grove's adjoining Farmer's Market, where they attended an opening for famed hospitality guru Robert Earl's new joint, Planet Dailies. 

The interactive eatery's launch drew J.Lo pal Mario Lopez, as well as former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cee-Lo Green, Joe Manganiello, Piers Morgan, designer Tommy Hilfiger, George Lopez and "Mad Men" cutie Sam Page.

Mingling led to cocktails in the adjoining Mixology 101 lounge, where Lopez's efforts came full circle as she and Smart screened the "Dance Again" video for the crowd.

If only we could look as good multitasking. Check out the video below.

Jennifer Lopez's manager wishes for less 'obsessive' suitors

Jennifer Lopez

Plenty of people are enamored with Jennifer Lopez, but the diva's talent manager wishes the "nearly obsessive" types wouldn't try to court the "American Idol" judge.

While Lopez has been enjoying life after her split from husband Marc Anthony, taking up with spirited dancer Casper Smart, her rep Benny Medina says that menfolk tend to be super into Jennifer.

"The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone," Medina told Vogue, for which Lopez serves as cover girl, "instead of having nearly obsessive guys pursue her."

Such a J. Lo problem. But if the actress and singer shares the sentiment (or doesn't), she's not saying either way.

"He’s a good egg," she said of Smart. "I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing."

What isn't private is video below of her stunning Vogue shoot, the annual shape issue in which Lopez flaunts her curves and a radiant glow. New love or great bronzer? Watch and decide.

Jennifer Lopez, boyfriend Casper Smart enjoy a getaway in Hawaii

JloStory
Jennifer Lopez and new boyfriend Casper Smart carved out a little time for each other and family over Thanksgiving with a getaway to Hawaii.

The two were spotted on the beach with Jennifer's 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and onlookers reportedly couldn't help but notice Casper helping out with the kids.

"Casper was great with the kids," a source told Us Magazine. "He was twirling them around and doing flips with Emme and she seemed very comfortable with him. Jennifer got a chance to sit back and relax while Casper took over and played."

However, the couple also had a little time to themselves. Photos surfaced on TMZ of the pair relaxing in a cabana during the Hawaii rendezvous.

News of Jennifer’s May-December romance with the backup dancer (she's 42, he's 24) spread a few weeks ago, then was reinforced by some not-so-subtle PDA action at her Fiat sponsored American Music Awards after-party Sunday.

Jennifer Lopez explains tear-filled 'One Love' performance

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez got a little verklempt during a concert performance this weekend, proving the diva isn't afraid to share her softer side with fans.

Lopez staged an elaborate retelling of her love life Saturday via her new song "One Love," jamming for an audience at the Mohegan Sun casino's 15th anniversary in Connecticut. The choreographed number accompanying the track included lookalikes of exes such as Diddy, Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony. 

All that dancing catharsis got the best of Lopez, who broke down into tears during the number.

"After I sang the song, I’m standing there, and I realized that I did bare a little bit of my thoughts in this song. I also acted it out, kind of, for the audience," she told "Access Hollywood" after the show. "The way they received it was very touching."

She added: "I think that they felt what I felt, which is, you know, I'm just a girl, just like everybody else, trying to find my way."

Lopez recently split from third husband Anthony, with whom she shares twins Max and Emme. Most recently, the "American Idol" judge has been spotted spending time with actor Bradley Cooper. Never let it be said that Jennifer doesn't love some new dance steps.

Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lopez wine and dine in New York

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez know how to lend a prix fixe meal some heat a la carte — by simply enjoying such a dinner date together.

The two single actors broke bread at New York City's Per Se, a swanky upper west side eatery that boasts a $295 prix fixe chef's tasting menu. Saturday night also saw them indulging in an hours-long conversation.

The outing was described as "romantic" by a TMZ source, and news of a Lopez-Cooper hookup would be both unexpected and sexy. But don't look for a save-the-date card soon: Others said it was all business, with the two talking about a possible project on which to collaborate, according to E! News. 

Lopez, 42, is divorcing Marc Anthony, her husband of seven years, after their union imploded this summer. Cooper, 36, had a serious go at it a while back with Renee Zellweger, but that fizzled after a year ending in September 2010.

Marc Anthony's catharsis chat: I'll always love Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony says he'll "always love" Jennifer Lopez
Marc Anthony is rolling right through the steps of a celebrity breakup: After the bombshell announcement, insensitive concert spewing and total silence comes the routine catharsis chat.

All of Anthony's gems about divorcing star wife Jennifer Lopez will air this week as he sits down with ABC News, but not without some teasing in between.

"Did you want this divorce?" interviewer John Quinones asks as Anthony gives pensive looks. A long snippet of the chat will air on "Good Morning America" on Thursday, followed by a full special that evening on "Nightline."

"I'll always love Jennifer," Anthony reveals. And that's the spiciest bit in this interview appetizer (clip below). Lopez, in the meantime, will head back to "American Idol" as a judge this fall, with Anthony keeping his day job as as regular on TNT's "HawthoRNe."

Jennifer Lopez opens up about Marc Anthony split -- and love

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Jennifer Lopez is speaking out about her pending divorce from Marc Anthony and, in typical J. Lo fashion, the cathartic chat shows her major marketing prowess. Oh, and a possible multimillion-dollar raise from the folks at "American Idol."

With a new magazine cover and possible return to the singing competition, Lopez is back in form as the empowered female who built herself into a global brand -- and she's not bitter, as she tells it.

"Sometimes it doesn’t work -- and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love," Lopez told Vanity Fair about her surprising split with Anthony.

"It's still my biggest dream. I am positive -- determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person," she said. "I now look forward to new challenges, Lopez said. I feel strong."

Jennifer Lopez on Vanity FairHer bank account seems rock solid too: Lopez will is rumored to be returning for a second season judging "American Idol," to the tune of $20 million. The singer and actress has yet to sign on the dotted line, according to the Wrap, due to scheduling around film work. Fox did not respond to a request for comment.

Lopez was married twice before tying the knot with Anthony, and famously engaged to actor Ben Affleck before breaking that off. While she doesn't name names, one insight points to trouble in paradise with her Latin-crooner soon-to-be ex.

"Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves," she said.

"To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself ... I love myself enough to walk away from that now," she said.

See behind-the-scenes footage from J.Lo's Vanity Fair photo shoot below.

Jennifer Lopez celebrates 42nd birthday with dinner in Miami

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez kept things simple and sweet for her 42nd birthday, enjoying a luxurious dinner for 16 close friends and family in Miami.

Lopez's mother, Guadalupe, her manager, her stylist and one of her sisters were among those who gathered at the Hotel Fontainbleau on Saturday, hitting Scott Conant's celeb-friendly eatery Scarpetta for foie gras ravioli and polenta.

"Jennifer looked radiant in a purple and silver evening dress," a source told People, "and when they brought out her birthday cake after the meal, she began to sing. She was very happy ... they closed down the restaurant."

Obviously missing from the group was Marc Anthony, Lopez's recently estranged husband. The pair caused a stir only 10 days ago, announcing that they had mutually agreed to end their seven-year marriage.

Prior to the birthday dinner, Lopez indulged in some retail therapy in the swanky Bal Harbour shopping district, scoring outfits for her twins Max and Emme from Bonpoint.

Lopez turned 42 on Sunday.

Jennifer Lopez

Divorce? What divorce? Jennifer Lopez performed at a wedding in the Ukraine this past weekend, singing and strutting like she hadn't a care in the world. 

The gig, for the son of a Ukrainian oil tycoon near the Black Sea, saw Lopez looking fierce and belting hits such as "Waiting for Tonight" and "On the Floor." 

The booking fetched her a reported $1-million fee and was likely a welcome break from the drama of her now-defunct marriage to Marc Anthony. Since the split was announced, headlines on weekly celeb magazines have been screaming about infidelity, control issues and self-esteem disintegration in the 7-year union. 

But girlfriend pulled through. The only glitch came in the form of a sound malfunction -- during which J. Lo took the opportunity to tell the world she's got a hold of herself.

"I think they're panicking, I'm not panicked. I'm good," she said, flirting with the crowd. "I feel good." 

She looks it too, evidenced by the full clip of highlights below.
