London: Jennifer Lopez`s commitment to Scientology is said to be the reason behind her split with husband Marc Anthony as the couple quarrelled over her wish to send their three-year-old twins, Max and Emme, to a Scientology school.

"Jennifer and Marc couldn`t see eye-to-eye on the subject. She`s always been more into the church than him. He wasn`t a huge fan and it caused problems," quoted a source as saying.

JLo is close friends with Hollywood couple Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes, who are staunch Scientologists.

The 42-year-old said in one of her recent interviews that she "wouldn`t mind" having her twins educated by the church, adding: "I just wish that people wouldn`t judge it without knowing what it is."

JLo`s marriage had been in trouble for some time and the couple announced July 15 that they were splitting.
