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 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.

Jada Pinkett Smith, Marc Anthony see 'HawthoRNe' get the ax

Jada Pinkett Smith's "HawthoRNe" has been cancelled

Get a crash cart for Jada Pinkett Smith and Marc Anthony: Their TNT series "HawthoRNe" has flat-lined.

The network on Friday confirmed cancellation of the hospital-based drama, which in the most recent season added Anthony's detective character as a love interest to Pinkett Smith's Christina Hawthorne, R.N. The series also featured "Monster In Law" actor Michael Vartan, as well as Suleka Mathew and Hannah Hodson.

"TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of 'HawthoRNe,' " the network said in a statement.

"HawthoRNe" was one of several series, including Kyra Sedgwick's "The Closer," that established the network's reputation for featuring strong female characters. 

Since Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage is fine and dandy, according to her and husband Will Smith, she'll have some extra time on her hands to bask in wedded bliss. Not so much for Anthony, who recently ended his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.

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."

Will and Jada make a public display of Team Smith solidarity

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

Call it "Will and Jada, the Morning After": Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were photographed together Wednesday, smiling and laughing over brunch the morning after shutting down a tabloid report that they were separating.

Sans kids, the couple hit Bob Morris' Paradise Cove Beach Cafe for omelets, coffee and paparazzi pictures, said TMZ, which shortly after brunch just happened to catch Will and Jada together a few miles down Pacific Coast Highway, shopping, smiling, holding hands and posing with fans.

"They were laughing and being cutesy — they seemed to be getting along just fine," an onlooker told People.

Will and Jada had branded a report that they'd separated as "completely false." "We are still together, and our marriage is intact," they said Tuesday in a joint statement.

In Touch continued to fan the fire Wednesday, putting more online from its print-edition report. Chief among the allegations, which were all attributed to an "insider": Will worried that Jada and her "HawthoRNe" costar Marc Anthony had grown "uncomfortably close" and surprised the two together in early August when he showed up unannounced to confront his wife about it. The mag also said that Will and Jada have been living in separate homes.

On Tuesday, reps for Marc Anthony and Jada Smith had denied rumors linking their clients.

Meanwhile, the Ministry was wondering just what it would take to get anyone to go up against Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez at the same time.

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 shakes it like a single lady in Ukraine [Video]

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.

Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony: A rocky road to their split?

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may have been looking cozy, but talk is bubbling up that the two were arguing "nonstop" during the months leading up to the end of their marriage.

Lopez and Anthony, who announced Friday that they would divorce, reportedly clashed over personal and professional issues -- that according to a bevy of unnamed sources piping up in the wake of the breakup.

The "Hawthorne" actor allegedly tried to call the shots over Lopez's wardrobe choices for an Us Weekly photo shoot last year, the mag said, shooting down one of her choices as "too sexy and unbecoming for a 40-year-old mother of two." One Us source called him a "dominating husband."

There are those who tell a happier story. One "American Idol" source told E! News that Lopez was devoted to her husband, treating his professional opinions as if they were coming from a manager, and that the two were never seen fighting. But a source close to the couple saw it differently, telling E!, "He was all over her all the time -- about everything -- and I know she tried very hard, and for a long time, to act like it didn't bother her, but I know it did. A lot."

About the couple's 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme: In the short term they will be hanging with mom for a bit in Atlanta while she's filming "What to Expect When You're Expecting," Life & Style said.

After the couple announced their split, there were reports linking Lopez romantically to William Levy, the hunk in her "I'm Into You" music video. Levy's rep, however, told TMZ that the "only relationship there was or is, is a professional relationship. That's all there's ever been."

Moving on to the Ben Affleck angle, which has nothing to do with infidelity and perhaps little to do with anything: J. Lo's mom allegedly sought advice on Jen's behalf last week from Affleck, whom Lopez dumped in 2004 after an 18-month engagement. Via e-mail, he "wished her well and offered what he could," an Us source said. Mmm-kay.

On the other hand, for years there has been speculation about Lopez worrying Anthony was unfaithful -- but a People connection said he had been faithful and supportive, and that the rest is just talk.

"They started to see life differently," the source said.

Marc Anthony gets to flirt, Jennifer Lopez gets to work after split

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are moving on after their divorce

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's split has many fans reeling, but life moves on for the celebrity pair.

The two dropped a bombshell Friday, announcing they had decided to end their marriage after more than seven years, saying it "was a very difficult decision" and "we have come to amicable conclusion on all matters."

So what's next? For Anthony, it was a Saturday night concert in Colombia that included some flirting with female audience members.

"They're saying I'm single," he told the crowd, eliciting cheers of the female variety. Blowing kisses at adoring women during his set, the crooner even singled one out and shouted, "Mamacita!" 

As for Lopez, she's on her way to sing at a wedding (ouch) in Ukraine on Tuesday. Tapped by a billionaire to perform at his nuptials, Lopez will allegedly earn more than a million bucks for the gig.

The duo are parents to fraternal twins Max and Emme, 3. Following end-of-summer obligations, Lopez may or may not return to "American Idol," while Anthony has a recurring role on TNT's Jada Pinkett-Smith led drama "Hawthorne."

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?
