Jennifer Lopez and fellow pop star Marc Anthony are divorcing after seven years of marriage.

"This was a very difficult decision," the couple said in a joint statement.

"We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.

"It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate respect for our privacy at this time."

Jennifer, 41, and Marc, 42, are parents to three-year-old twins Max and Emme.

Their split has come as a shock to many given the pair's public displays of affection.

On May 25, Marc joined his wife, a judge on American Idol, on stage during the show's finale, ending their racy performance with a passionate kiss.

And as recently as last month, they were pictured together in New York at the unveiling of a billboard in Times Square.

However, he was noticeably absent at the Bafta Brits to Watch party last weekend.

Instead, Jennifer took along her mother Guadalupe to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
