There seems to be quite a bit of hullabaloo over the marriage of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. The four-year marriage, second for Anthony and third for J. Lo, has reportedly reached “a breaking point”.
J.Lo’s arrival at the premier of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last week without her wedding band or husband, sparked rumors of a marriage on the rocks. Adding fuel to the fire was the revelation that Anthony too, was without wedding band in Las Vegas the weekend before.
The new issue of Us Weekly Magazine, which hits newsstands tomorrow, contains exclusive details of the behind-the-scenes drama going on in the couple’s marriage.
Though a spokesperson from Marc Anthony was quick to squelch rumors about trouble in paradisio, multiple sources reveal to exclusively to Us Weekly that Anthony’s controlling behavior is one of several reasons that drove J. Lo over the edge.
“He’s very, very controlling of her,” says a close Anthony pal. “The skirts aren’t as short. You don’t see so much of that booty anymore.” Us Weekly also reports that Anthony also picks out Lopez’s clothes and keeps tabs on her phone calls.
The couple wed in 2004 and welcomed their 10-month old twins Max and Emme to their clan in February.
Though the couple was ecstatic about the birth of their twins, apparently, Latin diva J. Lo isn’t quite as content with being a domestic diva!
“Jennifer looked around and said, ‘This is my life now? I’m a Long Island housewife?'” a pal says. “She hates that everything she worked for went down the tubes.”
The actress turned singer, who used to command $15 million per film, “blames Marc for her career going down the [drain],” says the pal, who added that she’s bitter about the failure of their 2006 drama, El Cantante, which only grossed $7.5 million.
Us Weekly also reports that Anthony has been badmouthing his wife.
One night after their tense family Thanksgiving in which the couple “didn’t sit together,” Anthony hit NYC hotspots Bungalow 8 and Marquee, where he was spotted with his hand on a woman’s thigh and overheard complaining about his wife to a group of women, “telling them, ‘She’s making me miserable,'” a source says.
The next night. Anthony was photographed by TMZ.com partying (sans wedding band) with celebrity pals Eva Longoria Parker and Russell Crowe in Las Vegas.
The pair, who hadn’t been spotted together since Oct. 23 was spotted having dinner on Tuesday at Beverly Hills restaurant Luau, which they left holding hands.
I hope the couple can work things out. Oh, J. Lo! Marriage numero quarto? Ay papi!
