Marc Anthony seems to be acting like a jealous lover over Jennifer Lopez. The couple are about to be divorced but jealousy of her new relationship with 24-year-old backing dancer Casper Smart has led to a massive fight and now Marc is refusing to film any more of their Latin reality TV show.
Anthony (43) has refused to go to Peru and Chile to host and executive produce the latest auditions on his show Q’Viva: The Chosen after a massive argument with Lopez (42) last week.
Insiders say the atmosphere between the former couple was very tense. In a conference call with show executives, the discussion degenerated into a discussion of Casper Smart, Jennifer’s new boyfriend. In the end, Marc Anthony refused to work with her.
The I Need To Know singer Anthony waited until Lopez’s private jet had taken off from Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca, heading to Peru, to call Idol creator Simon Fuller to tell him that he was considering quitting their show for good, according to Star magazine.
Fuller’s XIX Entertainment makes the Q’Viva show, which scours Latin America for untapped talent in singers, dancers, musicians, and performers. Jennifer Lopez is currently filming the show without her soon-to-be ex-husband Marc Anthony.
He stated not being able to work with Jennifer as the reason for quitting. Close friends have termed this “his Latin pride.” That has been severely damaged by the divorce.
Millions of dollars are at stake in the making of the show, so producers are desperately talking to Marc Anthony to try to bring him back on board.
Lopez and Anthony announced they were splitting up in July after having been married for seven years. They have three-year-old twins Max and Emme.
No word on how the co-parenting is going after the split but it seems that now Jennifer Lopez has found a new love interest, he is not interested in working with her at all!
