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.

Lopez is having a good time with the toy boy and he is living large off of her. This kid is no fool.

Isn't Marc Anthony still dating Shannon de Lima? My guess is not anymore.

Marc Anthony is one sexy man, not that he might not have problems of some sort....but to choose that ugly little bug-boy over Marc is not something I would do!

She'll be deeply in love with this kid for about a week after they marry at HER insistence. Then she'll find someone else, fall deeply in love with HIM, and dump this kid because she'll realize, well, he's a kid and the age difference will be "irreconcilable." Encore, encore, encore.

Good for him. JLo is a whore and the ***** is tainted. Why would he want it back after another man stuck his penis in her? That's nasty.

We can boo Jennifer all day. She is a woman who is in love with being in love. Once a relationship is that point past the honeymoon stage? She's out the door. She has an emotional imbalance, and unable to have a real meaningful relationship. That doesn't make her a whore,it actually makes her really sad. Her kids are going to have to grow up and watch this. It will become a learned behavior for them. That alone is sad in itself.

I don't doubt that Marc wanted to reconcile, but I do doubt that Jennifer told him no because she was "so in love with Casper". If that is what Marc told people, it's because he is trying to save face. Jennifer managed to get out of a relationship with a very controlling man. She is smart to say no mas to him.

Jennifer Lopez does not respect the institution of marriage. She would rather sleep with immature young men than to stay in a committed union with Marc Anthony a mature man about her age and the father of her twins. She is pathetic.
