Hollywood celebrity gossip has it that prior to filing for divorce, MARC ANTHONY had hoped to reconcile with estranged wife JENNIFER LOPEZ… but then she chose to get serious with CASPER SMART.

Apparently, the reason why Marc Anthony finally decided to file for divorce was because he found out that J.Lo, whom he had been hoping to reconcile with someday, was already head-over-heels in love with her boyfriend, Casper Smart.

Which of course means that Lopez has no interest in dropping him anytime soon.

However, despite the fact that Marc was the one who filed the docs, sources close to the singer reveal to TMZ that he and Jennifer made the decision together.

TMZ reports:

“…[Marc] didn’t make the decision on his own — he had a heart-to-heart with J.Lo a few weeks back to see if she really, truly wanted to end the marriage.”

The site adds:

“We’re told he said he wanted to give the marriage another try, but Jennifer confessed … she was deeply in love with Casper … and wanted to pursue that relationship.”

Ouch.

But we doubt Marc’s too torn up about it… after all, he has a smoking hot model girlfriend to comfort him.
