Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are separating after seven years of marriage, they announced in a joint statement Friday. "It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time,” the statement said. They said the split was “amicable.” They are the parents to 3-year-old twins Max and Emme. The couple married in 2004 and renewed their vows twice, in 2008 and just last year. When they renewed their vows last year, Anthony joked “we realized the bets in Vegas [on whether we’d make it] stopped at five years.” All eyes were on Lopez last week when she brought her mom, Guadalupe, as her date at the BAFTA Brits to Watch event that featured Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
