Marc Anthony is opening up about his split with Jennifer Lopez. In a sit down interview with ABC's John Quinones, Anthony denied infidelity was the cause of his breakup.
The Latin singer tells Quinones:
- "People are trying to peg it on things because it was so shocking. It was like, it must have been somethingâ€¦It wasn't something sensationalistic. It was a realization on both our partsâ€¦ It wasn't shocking. These things happen."
Rumors have been swirling that Anthony and HawthoRNe co-star Jada Pinkett Smith were having an affair. Both stars have denied these claims. Anthony says he doesn't believe his impending divorce will affect his relationship with 3-year-old twins Max and Emme. He adds:
- "I'm always going to be Daddyâ€¦ And they're used to me traveling and Jennifer traveling and, you know, we speak all the time, and try to maintain that presence."
JLo and Marc Anthony, who were married for seven years, will move forward with plans to work together on the Latin talent show, Q'Viva! The Chosen. They also have a clothing line for Kohl's.
Marc Anthony tells ABC:
- "It's not the end of that. It's not. This is not a funeral. ... This is just two people who came together and just realized â€¦ that it wasn't sustainable the way it was, and that's that."
