Marc Anthony

Wanted to Reconcile

... But J.Lo Chose Casper

Marc Anthony held out hope for a reconciliation with Jennifer Lopez
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.

I think Marc was the one who wanted the divorce. Why would she wait to file. From her past history of leaving men, she would have wasted no time filing. I believe he was the one from the beginning who wanted to end the marriage. Who would have thought that he would leave her.

"she had not idea"? Great grammar from the weekend crew again. Use spell check or have a 2nd grader proof read.

Casper has no college education, he has no money or job skills. What kind of future does a backup dancer have as he enters his 30's? Jenny from the block looks ridiculous dancing with him in her videos. It looks more like a middle aged mother dancing with her son, it's just very creepy. Despite being rich I don't think there are alot of eligable guys who want to date a woman in her 40's who has been divorced 3 times with two kids. Just writing about this can give a guy nightmares!

She wants Casper because he looks like Alan Harper on Two and a Half Men.

I wish she'd make up her mind on a man and stick to it. Three marriages, engagements, affairs. Enough already. What a diva.

I have never known much about Mark, never cared to, but heard him sing on the Lionel Ritchie special last night and I was just blown away. He and Sara Evans sang one of Lionels songs and to me it was just wonderful, I will buy some of his music now, really did enjoy his singing. Hate that he is going thru a bad time with JLo, seems as tho he might still be in love with her......her record for marriage is not very good and that is sad, she really needs to stop getting married!!

There no fool like an old fool - JLO is paying for Casper's attention. He'll probably marry her, stick around for 2 or 3 years then bounce with a nice monetary payoff.

I'm not buying whatever it is Jay-Lo is selling. She hooked up with Marc Anthony to get back to her Latino roots. That P-Diddy was poking her and she got scared crapless when she found herself in the middle of that thug's world and bullets were flying. Grant it, she could have done way better than Marc in the looks department but c'est la vie. Why she chose a boy boy-toy when she could have hooked up hot 30+ type man-toy, who she could potentially marry [not a good idea-for him] is a mystery. I suspect her agent/PR squad decided that she needed some controversy to get her name out there. After all it's definitely not about the talent nowadays, it's the videos, appearance and off the hook lifestyle that keeps you at the top. John Mayer learned that being an ass hole backfires... not hat he had anything going on---all industry spinmasters and smokes and mirrors.

I luv u RPattz!    

JLo's has a high sexual appetite (everyone knows that) and Marc was just not delivering anymore. Like comment #47 said : 'can't make a ho into a housewife'. Period!

She is a beautiful woman, but clearly her man picker is broke. She goes from one relationship directly into another or having affairs while in one. The lady is broken in regards to relationships.
