Jennifer Lopez isn’t looking to get back together with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. The Shades of Blue actress dropped by The View on Friday, where she opened up about the father of her nine-year-old twins - Max and Emme Anthony. "You know, Marc and I are good how we are right now," she said. "There is a reason we're not together but we're great friends."


Jennifer and Marc officially divorced in 2014

The 47-year-old continued, "We're parents together and we're even working on a Spanish-language album together. That has been even better for us because actually, we met working. That's where we really are magical, when we're on stage together and stuff like that. That's where we're good and so we leave it there."

Jennifer and the Latin singer, who split after seven years of marriage, officially divorced in 2014. That same year Marc married model Shannon De Lima in the Dominican Republic, though they filed for divorce two years later in December 2016. Prior to Jennifer and Shannon, the singer was also married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. During their marriage, the pair welcomed sons Cristian and Ryan. Following their split in 2003, the beauty queen and Marc found themselves in an ugly child support battle.

Dayanara spoke out about the case, which she won, for the first time in a new interview with People En Español. She admitted, "There were days when I had to face my children; When I would [return home from court], they would ask me every time, 'Did we win mum? Please tell us we won.' And finally we were given what we wanted, more than double of what we originally asked. I am happy because my children do not deserve any less than that." Dayanara’s sons were in the audience at the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards, where Marc shared a kiss on stage with ex Jennifer Lopez. Recalling the moment, the mom-of-two said, "Such a shame that a moment of so much stature lost quality with everything that came after," adding, "My children are older now, and I cannot cover the sky with my hands."
