Marc Anthony

Wanted to Reconcile

... But J.Lo Chose Casper

EXCLUSIVE

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.

common sense    

JLo goes through men like I go through water.

She doesn't know the meaning of the word commitment or vows. She is not a great role model for her kids at all as she brings home different men every few months. Can you say Skank?!

Im not into wishing bad things to people, but it's obvious this new "boyfriend" is bound to play her.
Marc is the father of her kids and will always be regardless.
I think Jennifer needs to wake up and smell the coffee...
it just seems like she doenst want to get old.

The old hag just doesn't see it, that Casper will turn into the friendly ghost pretty soon when he leaves her for a younger more beautiful thing. Jennifer is a has-been and is no better than Dempi Moore wanting to be young when she ain't nothing more than an old hag. Look at the recent pics of her and Casper, he's ready to move on. Mark my words, it will be in the tabloids soon!

I hardly think Jennifer is thinking about marrying this man, much less a future with this man. She is loving what she is getting 12 times a day in the bedroom and the attention he gives her. Yes, its sad about her marriage, but she wanted to be a mother too and Marc Anthony fills that roll. Why do people try to put Hollywood weirdoes in an every day persons lifestyle? Can't be done.

Disagree with #121, Jennifer is stunningly beautiful,gorgeous figure,talented singer,dancer and actress. Not likely that the goofy looking guy will walk away from that! And she is all natural,not fake & photoshop,like the Kardashian hoes.

Who cares about this self absorbed woman, her husband is lucky she will one day regret her decision and he will be off having a happy life....i.e. Bruce Willis....Her children will resent her someday!!! Have fun girl!!!

Casper is probably better at something better than Mark is. It takes a lot of gymnastics to satisfy an aging narcissist.
