Just one day after Marc Anthony shared a shocking kiss with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez on stage at the Latin Grammys on Nov. 18, he and his wife Shannon De Lima announced that they’re separating! We didn’t see this coming at all!
Marc Anthony, 48, and his wife of two years Shannon De Lima, 28, shockingly revealed that they’re officially separated on Nov. 18, according to E! Anthony and De Lima started dating in early 2012, about five months after he and ex-wife Jennifer Lopez announced their separation after seven years of marriage. The musician made the romance known when he called De Lima his “statue of liberty” on social media.
In mid-September, De Lima took to Instagram to celebrate her partner’s birthday, calling him the best husband. “Happy birthday papi bello!!!! Gracias por compartir la vida conmigo… Y por ser el mejor esposo y amigo que alguien puede desear!!!!!” she captioned a photo of them together. In English, the message translates to, “Thank you for sharing your life with me…and for being the best husband and friend someone could wish for.”
It’s definitely not impossible that the final straw for their relationship was the shocking kiss with JLo, though of course we do not yet know the true cause of the split. However, it does seem like Marc was trying to do some damage control on Nov. 18 by kissing all of his friends to prove that it wasn’t a big deal. It’s definitely kind of awkward, but for all we know he and Shannon were done before the kiss happened. Even so, it may be possible that Marc and J.Lo will get back together…
