Good Morning America snagged an interview with Marc Anthony, who insisted that his seven-year marriage to Jennifer Lopez didn’t end abruptly. “It was a realization on both our parts. So, you know, it wasn’t shocking. These things happen. It was a decision that we made jointly,” Anthony, who sang the National Anthem at the NBA Finals in June, explained. “This is just two people who came together and just realized. . . I’m saying that it wasn’t sustainable the way it was, and that’s that.”
The interview, which aired this morning on ABC and will air again on tonight’s Nightline, gave Anthony the opportunity to clear up rumors that he had cheated on Lopez during their marriage; A source told Us Weekly that Anthony had an affair with a flight attendant in 2009. He did not, however, address the rumors that he and HawthoRNe co-star Jada Pinkett-Smith carried on a romantic relationship.
