And now that both of them are single at the same time, we’re not the only ones who are ‘shipping them even harder than usual.
Anthony’s split from his wife, Shannon De Lima, was announced on Friday, only hours after Anthony performed at the Latin Grammys alongside Lopez. The two, who have been extremely friendly even after their marriage ended, even ended the performance with a kiss, letting loose rumors that now that Anthony is single, he and Lopez, who split from her boyfriend Casper Smart a few months ago, are ready to give their love another go.
Sources say Lopez had nothing to do with Anthony’s breakup with De Lima; rather, they say his schedule was to blame.
“Marc is so busy with his career, touring and recording that he distances himself from his relationships without even knowing it,” one insider told People magazine. “Even with his wife in tow, she can feel like he is on another planet.”
The source also explained that Anthony doesn’t always want the relationship lifestyle.
“Marc likes to have a woman at home but he also likes to live like a bachelor,” the insider said. “This doesn’t work for very long.”
Another source told the magazine that Anthony and Lopez have been seeing more and more of each other, especially now that they’re recording a new album together.
“Marc has been in love with Jennifer Lopez since the day they met many years ago and that is a simple fact,” a source in Miami explained. “He was devastated when they split, and he will always be a part of her life because of their similar backgrounds, their kids and their love of music and performing. It would take a very strong spouse not to feel some jealousy.”
The source continued, “They seem better together now than any time in the past few years, but I don’t know if they will ever reunite as a couple. But I would not rule it out.”
