Jennifer Lopez's ex husband Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from his fourth wife Shannon de Lima, E! news has confirmed. In divorce documents, the 48-year-old singer officially filed legal proceedings on December 16 - two days before the couple announced their separation.

"After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage," the couple said in a statement. "We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter."
Marc and Shannon's separation marks the fourth one for the Latin artist. Marc was previously married to Jennifer Lopez, Dayanara Torres and Maria Von Ritchie Lopez. The Grammy artist shares son Cristian and Ryan with Dayanara and twins Emme and Max with JLo.
The singer started dating Jennifer in 2004 shortly after she split from Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. The pair then married in June of that year and welcomed their twins in February 2008. Three years later, they announced the end of their ten-year marriage, although the divorce was not finalised until June 2014.
