Marc Anthony will fight Jennifer Lopez for custody

Although their split back in July after seven years of marriage appeared to be remarkably amicable, Marc Anthony, 43, is now considering fighting Jennifer Lopez, 42, for custody of their twins, three-year-old Max and Emme. Jennifer currently has primary custody, but after Marc saw photos of the children in a car with Jennifer’s boytoy, Casper Smart, 24, who has a history of driving offences, he hit the roof. A source told Radaronline that Marc “Went ballistic when he found out about Casper’s criminal record. He explicitly told Jen that Casper wasn’t allowed to drive their children anywhere. Marc hates the fact that Casper is spending time with Max and Emme… and doesn’t think Jen is using good judgement when it comes to Casper.” Another source told Us Weekly Marc may go “back on his word” and ask for joint custody. However, Jennifer, whose career has seen a resurgence since she signed on as an American Idol judge, is not going to take Marc’s demand sitting down. The source said she’s “ready to smash him if he tries anything…It’s getting vicious.”

    She sounds like a total bitch. I hope he wins. She should not be showing off her sex toy boyfriend who’s close to being only half her age to her small children. She should keep him out of their lives completely if she doesn’t want them to grow up thinking mommy’s a skank.

    If Jen wants to have fun with her boy toy then its her choice since she’s splited with Marc. But she shouldn’t involve her kids in this unless the relationship is a serious one, which obviously its not. Marc is right, its bad parenting and she should know better.

    If you want to wiggle your giggle, sweetie, with a boy toy then do it behind closed doors and not in front of your kids. They are already exposed to too much of your hollywood crap.

    FFS they weren’t having sex in front of the kids they were driving in a car! anyone who is divorced knows that their kids come first, and the best way to find a person to date is to make sure their kids are comfortable with them. no point in falling in love if it turns out your kids hate the person. as for the age difference, if it was an older man with a younger girl, nobody would be saying anything.

    Seriously people, you don’t hear of too many marriages that work anyway. In Hollywood especially. If you last more than 2 years you’re doing amazingly. So when would be a good time to introduce your children to your new “fling”? Either way, by the time any kind of a real relationship forms between the new person and your kids, it’s time to move on, isn’t it??

    Tracy….Have you seen some of the pictures of Jen and her friend on vacation down south where she was sitting on top of him in a very sexual manner and everyone could see them, including her kids. And don’t you think the kids don’t ask questions when mommy sleeps in the same bedroom as her friend.

    If this is only about the kids being driven by her friend, would you let your kids be driven by someone who has not one but a history of driving offenses. I know I wouldn’t, boyfriend or not my kids safety would always come first before any of my boyfriends.

    It’s amazing how sexist these comments are.
    your attacking Jennifer for having a boyfriend, and how the hell would any of you know if the relationship is serious or not? pull your head out of your asses and grow up, Marc is controlling and jealous. Jennifer is allowed to date whoever she wants. It is none of Marc’s business. the control freak needs to get over himself.
    My daughters ex does the same thing to her every time she meets a guy but if Marc was doing this you would all say it is ok . seriously!!!!!! what century do we live in. Jennifer gave birth to his kids, that does not give him the right to tell her who she can and cannot have in her life. the tabloids should learn to mind their own business. This just causes trouble.

    She is very selfish and narcisstic person and is more with this new guy than her children. Trashy. I do not think that Marc is jealous, just worries about kids.

  9. Mark • December 23, 2011 @ 1:50 PM

    Debbie…I don’t see how Marc being concerned about his kids safety and upbring makes other people comments here sexist. This isn’t about teaming up against Jen because she got herself a boyfriend so close after her breakup with Marc. And maybe Marc is jealous, who knows. But this is about whats best for their kids.

    No matter how much she likes this new boyfriend, or how jealous Marc may be, if he has a history of driving offenses, is it wise to have these kids in the same car with him. I know that if my ex-wife new boyfriend had a history of bad driving, there’s no way in hell I would let my kids be in his car. This would have nothing to do with jealous, in fact I would be glad she moved on, but only my concern for my kids safety.

    Whether Marc is controlling or not, he has the right to be concerned for his kids safety.

    Looks like SOMEONE is living out a near mid-life crisis, trying to squeeze out what’s left of living la vida loca~

  11. Oliva • December 23, 2011 @ 6:12 PM

    Marc should be concerned. This dude had a criminal record for driving offenses and Marc doesnt want him to get his kids in serious trouble. Besides, J-Lo seems like a b**** and a skank who goes from one boy toy to the next, so I will be fine if Marc gets joint or even full custody.

  12. K-C • December 24, 2011 @ 1:30 PM

    didn’t Marc cheated on Jlo?

  13. Kags • December 25, 2011 @ 4:24 PM

    Jennifer, you need to grow the hell up. Seriously, she’s in her forties and running around with an ex con. I don’t blame Marc for being pissed, and “casper” lol seriously?

  14. Maricely Acosta • December 27, 2011 @ 2:10 AM

    Jennifer, cuidate nena..no hagas esas cosas alfrente de tus hijos. Dios mio, ya es suficiente..eres una mujer que esta pensando con pasion y no con la cabeza. Relajate, piensa en tus hijos. Que pena, no aprendes de tus errores. Como es que una mujer tan inteligente hace errores como los que estas haciendo? Te quiero como tu fan, pero necesitas hacer las cosas mas privadamente. Tus hijos primero.

  15. jjjones • December 28, 2011 @ 9:29 AM

    This was poor judgement on JLo’s part, but it doesn’t really justify losing custody over it. Marc is a creepy sleezy guy, so I hope he doesn’t get custody.

    I always thought Lopez seemed rather spoiled and like a ‘diva’ even with her portrayal as ‘Jenny from the block’ and public persona. Actions speak louder than words though, and to let her kids be driven by someone who is on probation for that particular offence and shouldn’t be driving in the first place is just plain reckless!
