Marc Anthony and girlfriend Shannon de Lima have split up after a year of dating.
The news of their split was confirmed just days after he met up with his ex-wife, singer/actress Jennifer Lopez.
Marc Anthony’s spokesperson, Blance Lasalle, confirmed the split, saying, “Marc is no longer dating model Shannon de Lima. The amicable breakup became official right in mid-January.”
De Lima and Anthony, who went public with their relationship last January on Twitter calling her his girlfriend “my statue of liberty”, seemed to be going strong even recently.
The couple were spotted on January 16 in New York City at Marquee, where an eyewitness said, “Shannon was dancing up a storm with her friends while sipping champagne and taking iPhone photos of the themselves and the light show. At one point, Shannon even jokingly gave Marc a lap dance when Pitbull came on.”
An insider said they did have fun together, but that the relationship just didn’t work any longer.T
Anthony, 44, was married to Jennifer Lopez for seven years and they have four-year-old boy/girl twins named Max and Emme.
J-Lo, who has been dating her back-up dancer Casper Smart for over a year, met up with Marc at this hotel in New York.
A source said Jennifer Lopez spent two and a half hours with her ex-husband at The Mark hotel, before he left with his head down trying not to be noticed.
Jennifer recently revealed that she felt like her “whole world had fallen apart” after her divorce from Marc.
The couple married in June 2004 and the couple welcomed their twins into the world in February 2008. They separated in July 2011 and divorced in 2012.
Marc Anthony and J-Lo have remained on good terms after their split, even working together on their Latin star search show “Q Viva!”.
