Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are now officially divorced. A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge signed off on the paperwork. The divorce came nearly three years after their first split up, according to E! News.
Their famous split was finalized in March, but due to court backlog, it has just entered the system.
The superstars announced in July 2011 that they were ending their romance after seven years of marriage. At the time, they released a statement, “This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
Jennifer, 44-year old, and Anthony, who is 45, tied the knot at home in Beverly Hills in June 2004. They are parents of 6-year old twins, Max and Emme.
However, it seems their relationship is still very cordial, with the source revealing that Lopez has sought advice from her ex prior to her recent break up with dancer Casper Smart.
In April 2012, Anthony filed for divorce asking legal and physical custody of the children. Lopez requested the same thing and filed a response in December 2013.
At the time, she also filed to have her legal name changed from Jennifer Muniz, which is Anthony’s real surname, back to Lopez.
She has been married altogether three times.
Her first marriage was to chef Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998. Then she married dancer Cris Judd in 2001 and was married until 2013. Anthony was previously married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, from 2000 until 2004.
However, neither was single long after. Jenni from the block began romancing Casper in 2012, and Anthony began dating model Shannon De Lima.
