Marc Anthony Just Filed for Divorce from Jennifer Lopez … But Why?

That seems really weird, right? All the way back in July of last year, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez made a joint statement that said “we have decided to end our marriage.” It wasn’t a statement of “we’re having a rough time in our relationship, so please give us some privacy,” it was a statement of “yeah, this is over.” I assumed that papers were filed soon after, if not before, that statement, and that we just never heard anything about the marriage being officially, legally over because why bother? But nope, just a few days ago, Marc filed for divorce.

Why did it take so long? Were they fighting over the terms of the divorce? No, they’ve been getting along way too well for that. Were they just being lazy? I don’t know about Marc, but I know that Jennifer Lopez is certainly not lazy. Were they hoping to work things out? Well … halfway.

From TMZ:

Marc Anthony held out hope for a reconciliation with Jennifer Lopez, but decided to file for divorce when she told him … she’s madly in love with BF Casper Smart … TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story … Marc filed for divorce Monday — nine months after the couple announced they were splitting.

But sources extremely close to Marc tell us, he didn’t make the decision on his own — he had a heart-to-heart with J.Lo a few weeks back to see if she really, truly wanted to end the marriage.

We’re told he said he wanted to give the marriage another try, but Jennifer confessed … she was deeply in love with Casper … and wanted to pursue that relationship.

We’re told Marc was blindsided … he had not idea things were so serious — and he was hurt.

So that’s why Marc filed divorce papers this week.

That’s got to sting a little, right? When your wife chooses her little baby boyfriend, the guy she has to give an allowance to and who she got to call your kids “daddy.” I’m not saying that Jennifer has an obligation to go back to a marriage that she clearly wasn’t happy with, but … really? It just blows my mind that she’d pick Casper over anybody.

But who knows, maybe I’m in the minority here. Maybe I’m part of a tiny little group of people who don’t see what’s so great about Casper Smart. But then again, I really don’t see what’s so awesome about Marc Anthony either. So I guess what I’m saying here is wow, Jennifer Lopez, way to pick ’em!

But what do you guys think?
