Jennifer Lopez & Split Reveal: Linked to Statement from Twitter

July 16, 2021 | Debbie Turner

Here at OSM we often bring you news on celebrities using social media and many times it’s to communicate good news to their fans, such as the Beckhams recently announcing their new baby’s arrival on Facebook. Other times it’s used for promoting a new album or movie such as with the latest Harry Potter movie, the last in the hit series. Sometimes though, social media sites can be used to broadcast bad news and that’s just what’s happened in the Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony split.

The couple announced their separation yesterday in a statement which was linked to from Jennifer Lopez’s Twitter account. The statement itself reads, “We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of privacy at this time.” The news was brought to us from Arienne Thompson over on USA Today and a lot of people will be saddened by the news of the Hollywood couple’s split after 7 years of marriage.

In Hollywood where celebrity marriages often come and go in the blink of an eye, Lopez and Anthony had seemed like an example of the perfect couple and their union had been relatively long-lasting and blessed with the arrival of their twins Max and Emme, now 3-years old. Since the news broke, the term ‘Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony’ has become a trending topic on Twitter. You can take the link here to see what people are saying about the split right now. Many of the comments are along a similar vein, mostly shocked as it was thought they were a very happy couple.

Over on The Hollywood Reporter an article tells how after Lopez’s recent stint on American Idol the couple are currently producing a new Latin American competition Q’Viva. There’s also a long list of Twitter reactions from celebrities responding to the news of the split. For example Alyssa Milano tweeted “Anyone else really upset about JLo and Marc Anthony splitting? #SadFace.” On a more comical (or cynical?) note Neal Brennan tweeted, “JLo & Marc Anthony announce divorce. JLo to regain full custody of fame she shared with him.”

We’re saddened to hear of the couple’s marriage split and would like to hear your thoughts on this matter and what you think of more and more news like this being posted on sites such as Twitter and Facebook? Let us know by sending us your comments.
