During the initial weeks following the news that superstar couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were getting a divorce, the couple seemed to be at peace with their decision to split. But apparently things aren’t so peaceful between the two anymore. Reports claim that Marc Anthony is upset over Lopez’s rebound relationship with her young backup dancer, Casper Smart, and now a major custody battle is brewing.
According to Us Weekly, sources close to the estranged couple say that Anthony is upset that Smart, J. Lo’s 24-year-old dancer and boyfriend, has been spending time getting chummy with the couple’s 3-year-old twins, Max and Emma.
One source claims that Anthony recently saw photos of Smart hanging with his kids during a Thanksgiving vacation and “hit the roof … it was a huge blowup,” said the source.
Anthony’s anger over J. Lo’s new romance is apparently beginning to spill over into their divorce proceedings. Though the estranged couple already agreed that Lopez would have primary custody of the twins, a source claims that Anthony may go “back on his word.”
According to the source, “He [Anthony] wants to make Jennifer suffer because she’s having fun with someone new, and he knows this will hurt her on the deepest level.”
But if Anthony is looking for an easy court win, another source says Anthony should think again.
The source claims that Lopez is “ready to smash him if he tries anything. … It’s getting vicious.”
Well, hopefully Lopez and Anthony can work things out before their post-romance drama becomes as serious drama for their two kids. Below, you can check out six other Hollywood couple who endured a nasty custody battle. –nicholas robinson
