Are Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony having marital problems….yes says InTouch via Celebitchy and it all has to do with money and living arrangements. Marc wants to be on the road making money and now Jennifer has to stay put for a while during American Idol…trouble?
This was supposed to be one of the happiest times of Jennifer Lopezâ€™s life. After suffering several career setbacks in recent years, sheâ€™s poised for a massive comeback as a new judge on American Idol. But as her good fortune increases at work, trouble is brewing at home.
Tension has been building between Jennifer and her husband, Marc Anthony, for a while. â€œThey kept it bottled up while she was trying for the job on Idol, but now itâ€™s all coming out,â€ an insider close to the pair tells In Touch. â€œMarc, especially, is cracking.â€
At war over everything from money problems to Marcâ€™s inability to stay in one place, the insider fears the once-close couple may be at the end of their rope. As In Touch has reported, Marc made the move to LA â€” a city he dislikes â€” to support his wife, but a friend admits he gets restless quickly. Now spending less time with their twins, Max and Emme, 2, Marc is so â€œmoney hungry,â€ the insider says, that he is heading on tour in February, just as Idol begins. And in their case, absence doesnâ€™t make the heart grow fonder. Marc, 42, doesnâ€™t communicate well with Jennifer, 41, on the phone, the insider shares: â€œHe either yells at her or doesnâ€™t take her calls. From what I can see, they just arenâ€™t getting along.â€
Marcâ€™s recent troubles with the IRS have deepened the rift. Reports surfaced in December that he owed millions in unpaid taxes. Although a rep says he quickly came to an agreement with the IRS, the debacle surprised and angered Jennifer.
Marcâ€™s response? He added more tour dates to his schedule, says the insider, essentially pushing his wife even further away. And the prolonged distance could be a recipe for disaster. â€œOn tour, heâ€™s always drinking and flirting with lots of women,â€ adds the insider â€” a situation that a strong, independent woman like J. Lo certainly wouldnâ€™t tolerate for long.
