JENNIFER LOPEZ and MARC ANTHONY | Fought over Jealousy, Infidelity and Control
When they announced their split on July 15, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony revealed they had already "come to an amicable conclusion on all matters."
For those who know the couple, that statement might have been more surprising than calling an end to their seven-year marriage.
The decision to split actually came "after months of nonstop arguing," says a source close to the family. There were issues on a movie set, envy on the American Idol stage, and times that Lopez, 41, feared her husband wasn't faithful.
An Anthony insider disputes infidelity claims and maintains the 42-year-old always supported her career. "They started to see life differently," the source says.
As they move on to the next chapters of their lives, the Anthony insider also says the breakup is for the best. "Though they love, admire and respect each other very much, they just needed to be apart."

And honestly, Marc has the audacity to be unfaithful? Hmm....
Bonjour, ma chérie! Jennifer Lopez takes time out of her Paris press tour to hit the shops with daughter Emme, 3, on June 16. A month later, the American Idol judge and husband of seven years, singer Marc Anthony, announced their split.
Give me the mic! The actress shared this photo of herself with Max and Emme, 3, behind the judges’ table on March 17, Tweeting "Take your twins to work day at Idol."
To support a good cause, the adorable twosome – who turned 3 on Feb. 22 – struck a pose with mom for the new Gucci Kids campaign.
