TMZ is reporting that Anthony had hoped the couple would try to work on their troubled marriage. But, according to their sources, Lopez apparently told him that she’s in love with new beau Casper Smart. Once this happened, Anthony formally filed for divorce on April 9.
Lopez recently broke her silence about Smart, one of her back-up dancers. The 42-year-old Lopez tells Vogue of the man 18 years her junior, “He’s adorable…He really is [loving and sweet]. He’s a good egg.”
Anthony and Lopez wed in 2004. They have two children together.
