Jennifer Lopez's marriage to Marc Anthony ends

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez's marriage to Latin pop singer Marc Anthony has ended, People magazine reported on Friday.

The couple has been married since 2004 and have 3-year-old twins.

"We have decided to end our marriage," the couple told People in a joint statement. "This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusions on all matters."

"It is a painful time for all involved," the statement continued, "and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."

Lopez, 41 has most recently been seen on U.S. television as a judge on "American Idol" and her single "On The Floor" has been a top ten hit in several countries.
