Jennifer Lopez told Marc Anthony last year that she wanted a divorce, Star magazine is reporting exclusively in its new issue.
While the couple’s divorce announcement shocked Hollywood last week, it didn’t stun J.Lo’s friends, who now reveal that she was set to walk out around Christmas.
“Jen told him she wanted out of the marriage late last year but he begged her to stay,” one source told Star. “She stayed but she was miserable until finally she couldn’t take it anymore.”
And even though J.Lo and Marc made the announcement jointly, things have turned bitter behind the scenes, RadarOnline.com has discovered.
One major problem: money.
Even though the couple is worth more than $250 million, J.Lo was disgusted with the way Marc handled money and when he racked up $3.4 million in liens last year – as first reported by RadarOnline.com – she told pals: “I’m not bailing him out.”
One friend said: “She fell out of love with him and it happened early last year. She was miserable in the marriage and finally late last year she wanted out.”
More details on how the couple’s marriage unraveled are in the new issue of Star which hits newsstands today.
