"We have decided to end our marriage," the couple tells People in a joint statement. "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 our privacy at this time."
Lopez has had a well-publicized dating history. Back in 2001, the singer's marriage to backing dancer Chris Judd ended after just nine months. She has also dated rapper Diddy and actor Ben Affleck -- a relationship that spawned the term 'Bennifer.'
Less than a week after his divorce from Miss Universe Dayanara Torres was finalized, Marc Anthony married the 'American Idol' judge in a quiet home wedding (guests thought it was going to be a simple "afternoon party.")
Lopez (41) and Anthony (42) have been married since 2004 and have two children, 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
