Despite rumors, Marc Anthony says no third party came between him and wife Jennifer Lopez — it just hadn’t “worked” for some time.
“I’ll tell you that it wasn’t something sensationalistic happening,” the singer asserted to ABC News.
“It was a realization on both our parts. So you know it wasn’t shocking. These things happen,” he explained. “It was a decision that we made jointly.”
“This is not a funeral. This is not a burial,” Marc said. “This is just two people who came together and just realized — and so I’m saying that it wasn’t sustainable the way it was, and that’s that.”
Tabloids have claimed Marc got close to “Hawthorne” co-star Jada Pinkett Smith, who’s currently battling rumors of a split with hubby Will Smith. (“Marc was definitely taken by Jada,” a Life&Style magazine insider declared.) Reps on both sides vehemently deny the reports.
Are Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake really back together?
Sources close to the actress told the New York Post that she said she and “her boyfriend” were “going on a vacation” shortly before the former couple traveled to Martha’s Vineyard, the Hamptons, and Toronto on a pre-Hurricane Irene jaunt last weekend.
The pair split in March after dating for four years — and weathering numerous rumors of discord and infidelity — and J.T. was subsequently linked to multiple Hollywood beauties. (Nothing confirmed, mind you.) But he and the former “7th Heaven” star were reportedly acting like a couple again on their romantic getaway.
After their spring split, the “SexyBack” singer “made an effort and started to pursue her,” an Us magazine source said.
On a stroll in Toronto, they appeared to be back in relationship mode, per a source: “They seemed very comfortable, both taking turns holding her dog’s leash. It felt very couple-y!”
And while lunching at The Swan, “they were only paying attention to each other,” said an onlooker.
“They were there for about 45 minutes,” relayed a Post source. “They were in baseball caps and sunglasses, but everyone recognized them. Everyone acted very Canadian and left them alone.”
Reps for Justin and Jessica were mum.
So are they really back together, or could they be just — wait for it — “Friends with Benefits”?
Beyoncé’s Baby News
Dish on Beyoncé’s pregnancy: The newly announced expectant mom is “about three months along and is due in February” with her and husband Jay-Z’s first child, a source tells Radar Online. “She and Jay are absolutely overjoyed ... her whole family is really excited.”
“Of course having a little boy for Julez [son of her sister Solange] to play with would be ideal, so they have their fingers crossed,” the insider says. “But both Beyoncé and Jay are just so happy to be having a baby, they don’t care what it is!”
Whether it’s a boy or a girl, we’re fully expecting it to release a single featuring Kanye West, and possibly a fashion line, before the age of 2.
