Nowadays, Marc Anthony is usually just associated with being Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband more than anything else. But he’s actually a successful musician in his own right, especially south of the border. Anthony has won two U.S. Grammys, three Latin Grammy Awards, and several awards from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. He’s sold 12 million albums around the globe, and has become one of today’s most well-known salsa singers.
In June 2004, less than a week after Anthony’s divorce from his first wife was finalized, he married Lopez. Despite being the hottest new celebrity couple, Anthony and Lopez hosted family and friends at an intimate, low-key lunch—the guests didn’t even know they were attending a wedding until they arrived.
Anthony and Lopez seemed like such a happy celebrity couple, especially after the birth of their twins, Emme and Maximilian, in February 2008. Three years later, they announced that their marriage was over and that they were separating. Anthony officially filed for divorce from Lopez in April 2012.
Rather than mope about the end of his marriage to the superstar, Anthony tried his hand at dating a woman who was much younger than his ex-wife. His new sugar baby was model Shannon de Lima, who’s almost 20 years his junior. Their relationship lasted about a year and although they didn’t dish too many details on what led to the split, the news of the breakup came a couple days after Anthony was spotted at the same hotel as Lopez.
After Lima, Anthony moved on to someone even younger—21-year-old Chloe Green. But Green was far from a sugar baby, because she certainly wasn’t with Anthony for his money. Green’s father is Sir Philip Green, the CEO of the company that owns the multinational retailer Topshop. While Anthony’s net worth is an impressive $40.0 million, Mr. Green’s net worth is estimated to be around $5.0 billion.
Anthony has been in an on-again-off-again relationship with the Topshop heiress since February 2013—they broke up a few months into it because Green felt like it was too much pressure to step in as his kids’ stepmother at such a young age, and she reportedly felt like Anthony still had feelings for his famous ex-wife. Nonetheless, they rekindled their May-December romance. Unfortunately, in February 2014, the celebrity couple announced that they were splitting up again, this time due to their busy schedules.
