Jennifer Lopez told the NBC TODAY show Monday that she still has real love for Marc Anthony despite their divorce and she was asked by Matt Lauer if the American Idol judge plans to marry again.
Lauer also asked Jennifer Lopez awkward working with Marc Anthony on there “¡Q’Viva! The Chosen” program, which is a talent show for Univision, since splitting. She spoke highly of her ex-husband on the TODAY show, stating, “Marc and I were friends before we got married. And we always worked together, so it wasn’t an unnatural thing for us to continue working together. And, obviously, we have children together, so it’s not going to be like he’s not in my life. He’s always going to be in my life.”
She added of Anthony, “There is real love there.”
Lopez has now been married and divorced 3 times, and has been dating 24-year-old back-up dancer, Casper Smar, since the Anthony split. Lauer asked Lopez if she thought she would ever marry again. Ironically Lopez said, “I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.”
She added, “It’s not time to think about that yet. It’s still fresh.”
It was reported that Lopez and Anthony started having trouble in their seven year long marriage when he tried to take control of her wardrobe, wanting to dress more appropriately for a 42-year-old mother of two, but she didn’t want to have anything to do with that.
