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.

That is stupid, if true. She will never last with that Casper kid, and Marc is the father of her children! The kids deserve better than that and she should have tried to make it work with Marc rather than go with a little boy for a fling.

Too bad her integrity isn't as beautiful as her outward appearance is.

I don't like Lopez at all and never have. I think her behavior is nasty and she's a really fu.kced up excuse for a parent -- what do you think her kids are going to see growing up? Mommy with a new "Uncle" every few months. That's just sickening.

BUT -- Marc left his wife and children to have an affair with JLo and eventually marry her. If they cheat WITH you they'll cheat ON you. He should have known better. I hope he learned a lesson in karma.

With all her "fame and fortune," chica never really left the Bronx. Casper would be considered a real find in her old 'hood!

I understand beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but dear LORD does Jennifer Lopez have horrendous taste in men. LOVE Mark Anthony's voice, but seriously, he is downright unattractive (in my opinion) - I mean what does he weight? About 74lbs dripping wet. AND her latest, this Casper dude, he is just downright creepy looking.

Marc and Jennifer had dated prior to his marriage with Ms. Universe. Marc is a very talented grammy-award winning Salsa singer, talented actor, and an amazing song writer. When Marc and Jennifer got married, the general consensus in the latin community was, "Why is he marrying her?" My non-latino friends were like, "Why is she marrying him?" The latinos already knew who the talented one in that marriage was all the way back then!

Marc and Jennifer announced their separation last July (2011). The twins visited their papa for his birthday, and other times. The couple continued with the show, "Q'Viva. The Chosen". Apparently, neither one had filed for a separation or divorce? Suggestions: If Marc & Jennifer want to reconcile: please, no anonymous "sources". Identify all spokespeople.. Friend-ly interference will only confuse and create misunderstandings. They may need months of counseling. Both should end all contact with former-lovers, and platonic best friends. All contacts with the baby mamas should be limited to discussions concerning their childrens welfare. QUESTION: If Marc wants to reconcile with his wife, why did he seek out a relationship with Shannon and other women? Jmo.
