CLAIM: Marc Anthony and J. Lo Fight Over Her Boyfriend
“Marc Anthony refused to shoot his Latin reality TV show with soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Lopez because of her new relationship with 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart,” begins a piece on RadarOnline, which bases its report on a story from its sister publication Star.
According to the outlets, Anthony “refused to go to Peru and Chile to host and executive produce the latest auditions on his show ‘Q’Viva: The Chosen‘ after a monumental blow-up with Lopez.” A so-called “source” says, “Marc and J.Lo had a tense conference call when she was in Morocco. Inevitably, their discussion boiled down to her new boyfriend (Smart) and Marc made the decision not to work with Jennifer last week as a result.”
Perhaps the key phrase in this erroneous report is RadarOnline writing, “Lopez was photographed in Lima, Peru, and Santiago, Chile, in the past week – filming the show without Anthony.” It seems RadarOnline and Star based Anthony’s alleged non-participation (and non-existent fight) on just a set of photos. There was NO argument, because Anthony was NEVER, ever scheduled to shoot with Lopez in Peru and Chile.
As show insiders told us months ago, the estranged spouses shot the show together only in Puerto Rico, and would divide other Spanish-speaking countries between them. “The trips are split. Marc does some, she does others,” a show insider confirms to Gossip Cop, adding, “[Anthony] already completed his part of the shooting schedule. Now it’s Jen’s turn.” And, in fact, Anthony did Mexico, Costa Rica and Colombia, while Lopez handles Argentina, Peru and Chile. Regardless of where Lopez and Anthony shoot “Q’Viva,” RadarOnline es incorrecto.
