J-Lo's pool problem

Good thing Jennifer Lopez is bringing home the big bucks these days because, according to her husband, her son Max had a very unfortunate accident in their swimming pool.

jennifer lopez twinsMarc Anthony confessed that his son Max with Jennifer Lopez used their home swimming pool as his own personal toilet. We know celebrity bathrooms are big, but this sounds a little crazy.

The celebrity couple's twin kids, Max and Emme, 3, are in the middle of toilet training. Things were going along swimmingly, until Max ended up in the pool and didn't notify anyone that he needed a toilet break.

"He had an accident in the pool," Anthony, who shared his family secret on The Tonight Show, told Jay Leno. "It got into the filtration system and they charged us to clean it. That was expensive." How expensive was it to clean up little Max's potty mistake? "He took a $6,000 dump in the pool!" Oh, dear.

Anthony reports Max and Emme are quite clever when it comes to their parents' toilet training tricks. When Marc and the American Idol host tried bribing the twins with candy if they used the potty, the kids didn't fall for that.

"In order to potty train them, every time they'd use the toilet we'd give them a lollipop," Anthony explained. "Three days passed and we ran out of lollipops. I'm like, 'You should probably get them checked out if they're using the potty that much.'"

Is this a case of celebrity TMI?
