Washington: The reason behind Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s split has been put down to their “months of non-stop arguing”.
A source close to the family said Anthony, 42, and Lopez, 41, who are parents to 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, decided it would be in the children’s best interest if they split.
“Marc and Jennifer decided it`s best to go their separate ways for the sake of their two kids,” People magazine quoted a source as saying.
“Jennifer is doing okay. In the past two weeks, she has spent a lot of quality time with her kids and her family in L.A,” the source stated.
“She is, of course, sad that she and Marc didn`t work out, but they both feel they have tried everything,” the source added.
Those closest to the couple said Lopez tried everything she could to make it work.
“They went to marriage counselling. She was patient and loving and did everything he wanted her to. She exhausted all the possibilities,” the source told a magazine.
“She is devastated. Absolutely beside herself. This is someone she dedicated a long time to, and that she truly loved,” the source added.
Another source said the pair had a very unstable marriage, and they were always fighting.
“They would get into heated, horrible fights. Then, they would also go through times where they were extremely loving and romantic...It was a roller coaster with them from the beginning,” the source said.
