Marc Anthony has a new bachelor life

Marc Anthony has moved out of the LA home he shared with American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez – but he hasn’t gone far.

Following the couple’s announcement that their marriage is over, Marc, who’s dad to Jennifer‘s 3-year-old twins Max and Emme, is forking out £16,000 a month to rent a new bachelor pad.  

Marc has leased a fancy mansion 2 doors away,’ a source tells the Daily Star.

‘He wanted to be close to their kids.’

When J-Lo told Marc – her husband of seven years – that she wanted a divorce, his response wasn’t quite what she expected.

The musician reportedly told his wife he’d ‘move on as quickly as possible’ – and it was then that shocked Jennifer, 42, knew there was no changing her mind.

‘All she could say was: “Well, good luck to you both.” It was the moment she knew their relationship had died,’ reveals our exclusive source.  

‘She told me afterwards: “I realised at that point that he was never the love of my life.”‘
