“Difficult decision” leaves Lopez and Anthony in Splitsville

Latin music royalty is now mourning over the husband-wife split of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

In a joint statement revealed by, the two admitted to irreconcibale indifferences. “We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision,” it reads. “It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

Lopez and Anthony married in June 2004 in their Beverly Hills home and have two children together. If finalized, this would be Lopez’s third divorce and the second divorce for Anthony. Lopez married Ojani Noa in 1997 and her backup dancer Cris Judd in 2001.

During the tenth season finale of American Idol, Anthony joined his wife on stage for a rousing performance. This year, both released individual albums. J.Lo’s last set, Love?, was released in May and contains her Top Ten hit “On the Floor.” On the other hand, The album, which peaked at No. 5, has stumbled downward on the Billboard 200, going 67-74.

Talks are still bubbling behind closed doors if Lopez is planning to return to Idol after serving as a judge for the show’s tenth season. Buzz in the news world quickly escalated weeks ago about Lopez’s interests in creating a Latin version of American Idol called Q’Viva! The Chosen, with Marc Anthony also assisting and Simon Fuller, Idol‘s executive producer, working on the project, but with the news released concerning the failures of their marriage, that reality may not be hitting the small screen.

No word what the reasons were behind the major split.

So what do you think?
Did you think it was bound to happen?
Do you think the Q’Viva! is out the window?
Do you think their work schedules conflicted with their relationship?
