Marc Anthony and his wife Shannon de Lima have officially announced that they are getting a divorce.
In a recent statement to People Magazine, the two have answered and confirmed the earlier separation reports.
“After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage. We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter,” said Marc Anthony and Shannon de lima in a shared statement.
The news, which made papers last month, came hours after the controversial duet that Marc Anthony had at the Latin Grammy awards with his former wife Jennifer Lopez.
People close to the couple reported to People Magazine that Anthony’s busy schedule as a global superstar put a lot of pressure on them and their marriage.
“Marc is so busy with his career, touring and recording that he distances himself from his relationships without even knowing it,” said a close friend from the Spanish music industry. “Even with his wide in tow, she can feel like he is on another planet.”
“Marc like to have a woman at home but he also like to live like a bachelor,” the source said. “This doesn’t work for very long.”
Anthony and model Shannon de Lima married on November 11, 2014, in the Dominican Republic. It was the third marriage for Anthony, who has six children from previous relationships. His marriage to Lopez ended in 2011.
