Marc Anthony NOT Back Together With Shannon De Lima, Despite Claim
Marc Anthony is NOT back together with Shannon De Lima, nor did they walk the red carpet together this week, despite a laughably wrong report. Gossip Cop bust the embarrassing screw-up.
RadarOnline announces in a headline, “Back Together? Marc Anthony & Ex-Wife Hit The Red Carpet Together.” Alongside a photo gallery, it’s said, “It’s only been a month since Marc Anthony and Shannon De Lima finalized their divorce, but the pair is already acting cozy again! See their bizarre red carpet appearance.”
According to the site, Anthony “was all smiles as he appeared alongside his ex,” and “the pair put on a PDA-filled display at Maestro Cares Foundation’s 4th annual gala in New York.” The webloid goes on to declare, “It seems Anthony is having second thoughts about his divorce.” Readers are even asked,”What do you think of Marc’s reunion with De Lima?”
There’s just one pretty big problem: That was NOT De Lima who accompanied Anthony to the event. Far from walking the red carpet with his ex, the singer was actually joined by his new girlfriend, Mariana Downing. RadarOnline manufactured a story around a set of photos, and clearly didn’t know the identity of the woman pictured.
To be clear, Anthony and De Lima are pictured above in 2015. Anthony and Downing are below on the red carpet in question. The women are two different people. But Gossip Cop isn’t surprised at all by this gaffe, which the site hasn’t bothered to correct more than a day later. After all, this is the same outlet that falsely said Anthony was back together with Jennifer Lopez.
But at least the site is in good company now. The awful HollywoodLife made the same identity mistake before redoing its article.
