Marc Anthony 'Wanted J-Lo Reconciliation'
US reports claim Jennifer chose new boyfriend Casper Smart instead...
It has been nine months since Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez announced that they were ending their marriage, but US reports suggest Marc was still hoping to reconcile with his estranged wife until very recently.
According to TMZ, Anthony was keen to fight for his marriage to 42-year-old J-Lo and sources claim he met with the singer for a heart-to-heart just a few weeks ago.
Apparently though, Marc Anthony was "blindsided" when Lopez turned him down, choosing instead to pursue her relationship with 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart.
The US gossip site claims Marc had "no idea" things were serious between Jennifer and Casper, and was left with little choice but to file for divorce.
As we reported earlier in the week, Anthony filed papers at LA County Superior Court on 9th April, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
