Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony Split Over Scientology

Did Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony break up over Scientology?

Apparently the couple’s split might have to do with Scientology. The problem came about when Lopez wanted to send the couples 3 year old twins, Max and Emme, to a specialist school. However, Anthony did not agree, and it lead to a falling out.

A source said, “Jennifer and Marc couldn’t see eye-to-eye on the subject. She’s always been more into the church than him. He wasn’t a huge fan and it caused problems.” Lopez and Anthony had been married in a quiet home wedding on June 5, 2004.

J-Lo is a close friend to Tom Cruise and Kate Holmes who are devout scientologist. She recently admitted she wished people wouldn’t judge the Scientology religion before they knew what it was about. After the split she explained, “This was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to face. I really wanted this family to work. That was my biggest dream, and I worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn’t work - and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love…It’s still my biggest dream.”

Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by speculative fiction author L. Ron Hubbard (1911–1986), starting in 1952, as a successor to his earlier self-help system, Dianetics. Hubbard characterized Scientology as a religion, and in 1953 incorporated the Church of Scientology in Camden, New Jersey. Scientology teaches that people are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature. Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is a type of counseling known as auditing, in which practitioners aim to consciously re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects.
