Jennifer Lopez Marc Anthony

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are no longer a couple, even in the eyes of the law. The pair’s divorce has been finalized, almost three years after the couple first announced their separation. The question is, what took so long?

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is currently working on several film projects and the TV drama Shades of Blue

According to E!News, the actual details of the divorce were finalized back in March, but the divorce wasn’t actually entered into the court’s system until this week because of a backlog of data.

Marc Anthony Dayanara Torres Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony has been ordered by a judge to pay his ex-wife, Dayanara Torres, $26,000 a month in child support. This is double what was initially agreed when the two separated in 2004. They have two children together, sons Cristian (aged 13) and Ryan (aged 11). Whilst the amount may seem excessive, it was a compromise to the amount Torres was demanding, approximately $123,426.

World Cup Spirits Dampened By Technical Issues With Jennifer Lopez' Opening Performance


Jennifer Lopez Pitbull

The World Cup opening concert last night wasn’t quite the life-affirming optimism fest it was intended to be. The reason? Sound issues meant that the audience at home could barely hear Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull as they took the stage to perform on opening night. Fans in the stadium were fine, The Telegraph reports, but those watching the festivities elsewhere were likely not impressed.

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez did her best, but the sound problems were unmistakable.

Jennifer Lopez took to the stage to sing the official Fifa song We Are One (Ole Ola), looking on fine form for 44. Admittedly, the singer knows how to draw and keep a crowd and she projected as best she could. However, the “appalling sound quality” made J-Lo and Pitbull’s voices sound “tinny” and quiet. Not exactly what you’d want for the opening on the world’s biggest football tournament.

Jennifer Lopez Returns To The Bronx For 15th Anniversary Gig


Jennifer Lopez Fat Joe French Montana Ja Rule

She really is still Jenny from the block. Fifteen years into her successful career, Jennifer Lopez returned to her home for her first ever concert in the Bronx Wednesday night. There’s a theme here – JLo has kept up her connection to the Bronx throughout her career, so what better time to return – or to make her debut – than the fifteenth anniversary of her first album On The 6. Fun fact – the album was named after the subway line that connected Lopez’ home to her big city dreams.

Jennifer Lopez
With numerous costume changes, Lopez walked down memory lane back throughout her fifteen years on stage.

Now an international superstar, Lopez definitely returned in style, with a free, 90-minute concert at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park for State Farm's Neighborhood Sessions, featuring some amazing choreography, abundant pyrotechnics and several guest performers.

Jena Irene Impresses 'American Idol' Judges With Elvis Cover


Jennifer Lopez American Idol

Sure, Jena Irene delivered a great performance on Wednesday’s American Idol, but FCC warning-worthy? Jennifer Lopez seems to think so. Wednesday’s show was centered around the theme of love, with each of the four remaining contestants performing three songs – a “break-up”, “make-up” and “dedication”. In the end, Jena’s “dedication” performance stole the show. The 17-year-old musician reminded everyone what got her into the final four with a cover of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.

Jena Irene
As of last night, Jena is a favorite for the final three.

Jena accompanied herself on the piano and, in a rather endearing twist, dedicated the song to her mother, ahead of Mother’s Day Sunday. Jennifer Lopez was apparently so stunned during her performance, that she could be seen mouthing “f—k” to Randy Jackson, before the cameras cut away from her to the audience. Well, the FCC probably won’t be knocking on Idol’s door anytime soon, but Ryan Seacrest still poked fun at Lopez for the incident, saying: "We saw you in that song and you turned to Randy and you said FUN."

Anyway, the new rules stated that the five remaining contestants were allowed to either axe the finalist with the lowest votes or keep him/her, but face a tougher contest next week.

Celebrity Engagements That Didn't Last


Naya Rivera Big Sean Jennifer Lopez Ben Affleck Gwyneth Paltrow Brad Pitt Evan Rachel Wood Marilyn Manson Ryan Reynolds Alanis Morissette

The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.

Naya Rivera Big Sean Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship

These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

Scarlett Johansson Finds Nickname 'Insulting', These Other Celebs Don't Seem To Mind


Scarlett Johansson Brad Pitt Kristen Stewart Angelina Jolie Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lawrence

These days it seems as though fame is cemented when the world refers to you by your very own portmanteau. Over the past few years it’s become a way of referring to our favourite celebs, because in the texting generation don’t nobody gots time to say their full names. Think J-Lo, K-Stew, J-Law, ScarJo, the list goes on. Except ScarJo wants her name taken off the list, because, well, she’s apparently above all that. Apparently starring in a Marvel movie franchise qualifies you as a serious actress, Meryl Streep style. Or MezStree as we like to call her. And she freaking loves it.

Scarlett Johansson, or ScarJo as we like to call her (and which is how she shall forever forth be referred) explained to Glamour magazine, “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky.

There are no more second chances left for the remaining contestants on American Idol after the judges decided to use their save on Thursday night (3rd April). After strong performances on the previous show, it was certainly going to be an evening of drama and possible dissent amongst the judges.

The Bum Conundrum: Pippa Middleton Vs. Other Big-Bootied Celebs


Pippa Middleton Jennifer Lopez Kim Kardashian

The Royal Wedding was totally usurped by all of the attention that was incongruously bestowed on Pippa Middleton’s now very famous bottom. Ain’t nobody denying that the girl has a cute little behind, but really, in the grand scheme of celebrity booties it’s not really one to write home about. While the 90’s were all about supersize Pam Anderson style breasts, the past decade has been dedicated to the derriere. It’s now a “thing” to get butt implants and injections, because it’s not enough to be rail thin, you also need a huge ass. A little contradictory, but those celebs manage it pretty well!

celebrity butts J-Lo's butt has been famous for nearly two decades now

J-Lo’s badonkadonk was the first to bounce onto the scene back in the 90’s. A huge fuss was kicked up about whether she’d had butt implants or not, these days we’re more inclined to put it down to her Latino roots and admire Jennifer Lopez's booty with revered silence.

Then he and his fellow judges proceeded to whittle down the contestants to the final lineup, which includes the show’s very first openly gay participant in the outspoken MK Nobilette. Took them long enough. Anyway, here are some highlights from the night. Emily Piriz kicked things off behind the piano with "Stars" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, which earned her cheers from the audience, as well as judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez. Jillian Jensen, who might be familiar from her unsuccessful X Factor run, made it through auditions as well. Tuba player Malaya Watson provided some much needed quirkiness and also made the cut, as did Jess Meuse, beating Jesse Roach in a tense sing-off.

With Lowest Ratings Ever, "American Idol" Might Be Circling The Drain


Jennifer Lopez Harry Connick Jr. Keith Urban

American Idol is back with an updated judging panel, yet again. This season sees the return of Jennifer Lopez – one of the most popular judges in Idol history – as well as a new face, Harry Connick Jr. The show kicked off on January 15th, but you’d be forgiven for missing it – most US viewers did. Despite the updated panel, which producers hoped would breathe new life into the franchise, Season 13 has so far been the lowest rated one. 20th Century Fox COO Chase Carey spoke about Idol’s flaws to a crowd of Wall Street analysts on Thursday. The message was pretty clear – despite the renovations, American Idol’s glory days are in the past.

Even favorite judge Jennifer Lopez can't save this sinking ship.

The Fox chief operating officer told analysts on Thursday that the decision to bring back Jennifer Lopez as a judge and add Harry Connick Jr to the mix had resulted in a show that was “much better than it was a year ago”, but one that is also showing its age (quotes via The Hollywood Reporter).

American Idol Premiere Pt. 2 Recap: Harsh Connick Jr. Gets Harsher And Jennifer Lopez Cringes


Harry Connick Jr. Jennifer Lopez Keith Urban

Last night saw the second part of the American Idol season 13 premiere, only this evening the auditions continued in Austin and San Francisco. The previous episode's auditions had been fairly uneventful in terms of drama but Part 2 was where it started to get interesting.

American Idol Panel
The Judges Began To Show Their Real Personalities In The 'American Idol' Premiere.

After complaining that none of the contestants knew who he was, singer and actor-turned Idol judge Harry Connick Jr. decided to ensure that they would at least never forget him. Harry's no-nonsense style of judging takes the panel on a departure from the more sympathetic style of judging seen on Idol seasons of late and more of a return to the stereotypical Simon Cowell-esque strain of talent show nasty.

American Idol Returns With Revamped Panel And New Attitude: Recap


Jennifer Lopez Keith Urban Harry Connick Jr. Nicki Minaj Mariah Carey

American Idol is now back and focussing on the only thing that really matters on the talent show: the contestants. The last season of the singing talent contest saw ratings in freefall as viewers bored with judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey's bickering turned elsewhere, giving Idol its lowest ever ratings.

The Judges & Ryan Seacrest: New Season Means Back To Business.

As Idol's viewing figures plummeted, rival show The Voice loomed nearby ready to dominate. Of course, the producers and even judges themselves weren't blind to what was happening therefore decided to give the panel and format a revamp in time for the current season 13.

American Idol Finale To Be Held In New York? New Season Prepares For Lift-Off


Jennifer Lopez Candice Glover Randy Jackson Keith Urban Harry Connick Jr. Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj

American Idol's 13th season could be held in New York City, if there's any truth to the rumours currently flying around. The upcoming new season of the singing talent contest is preparing for launch but has beefed up its usual format and streamlined its panel of judges.

Apparently, plans are in place to have the final contestants battle it out on stage at the city's prestigious Madison Square Gardens in front of a giant arena audience of 8,000, according to THR. De-camping from L.A to NYC would represent a major move for the show, which has seen a decline in ratings to rival show The Voice in recent years.

American Idol will be back for its thirteenth season on Tuesday, 14 January, with an (almost) entirely new judging panel holding down the reins for the long-running singing contest. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. aren't the only new things to come out of the latest season of Idol either, as the new season may also mark the move from West to East Coast for the show.

Harry Connick Jr. Picked As Third 'American Idol' Judge


Harry Connick Jr. Keith Urban Jennifer Lopez Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj

Harry Connick Jr. will be pitching up next to Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming season of the ever-popular American Idol, as the singer has been confirmed as the third and final artist to sit in the judge's seat next season. Having served as a mentor on the show on multiple occasions, the singer will finally ascend to the judge's table for the show's 13th season, The Hollywood Reporter first revealed.

Harry Connick Jr
Harry Connick Jr. may possibly last more than one season as a judge

On Friday (30 August) it was confirmed that the crooner had signed a deal to become the latest judge on the show as producers apparently wanted a lack of female presence on the show following the friction and drama that followed last season's bickering judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. The friction between the two reflected particularly badly in the show's key demographic; older women, something that the addition of Connick will hopefully strengthen this time around.

'California Gurls' Hitmaker Dr Luke Will NOT Judge 'American Idol' To Avoid Sony/Universal Clash


Dr Luke Jennifer Lopez Kelly Clarkson Becky G Kesha Pink

Forget everything you've heard, hitmaker supreme Dr Luke will not be joining the judge's panel on American Idol, despite earlier news. It was reported that Dr Luke would sit alongside returning panel members Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the singing talent contest to judge pop star hopefuls for a 13th season.

Dr Luke Katy Perry
Dr Luke [L] Is The Man Behind Many Popstars.

Luke, with a history of writing hits for former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, as well as P!nk's 'Who Knew' and Katy Perry's 'I Kissed A Girl,' apparently made through the judge's selection process to become one of the last candidates standing after a month's long search for the next discerning talent judge.

Taylor Swift Performs Her 'Hairbrush Song' With Jennifer Lopez


Taylor Swift Jennifer Lopez Ellie Goulding

Jennifer Lopez joined Taylor Swift on stage to sing a special rendition of 'Jenny From the Block'. Swift was in Los Angeles performing at the Staples Centre on her Red Tour when Lopez joined her on stage. Swift announced Lopez's entry by asking the crowd "So I'm just wondering, Los Angeles, how would you feel if there was a special surprise guest?" Lopez's performance marked the end of Swift's four night run in Los Angeles.

Swift described her Los Angeles audience as an "incredible, amazing, wonder, unforgettable crowd." She then hyped up the unsuspecting audience by asking them "now I don't know about you, but when I was little, you know you had that favourite song? That you used to play over and over and over again? Just blast it in your room. And you'd sing in front of your mirror into a hairbrush, right? And you had that one favourite song. Los Angeles," Taylor announced "this is my hairbrush song." Lopez appeared on stage, in a highly rehearsed performance, wearing a sparkling white outfit which complimented Swift's black sequined shorts.

Dr. Luke will be joining Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the judging panel of American Idol. Dr. Luke a.k.a. Lukas Gottwald is the third judge to be announced with another yet to be agreed upon. E! first reported the news.

Gottwald is a songwriter and producer who is responsible for the likes of Kelly Clarkson's 'Since U Been Gone'; Kesha's 'Tik Tok' and Katy Perry's 'California Gurls'. As Urban and Lopez are involved in the performance side of the music industry, Gottwald is likely to provide an interesting perspective when judging the televised singing competition.

Jennifer Lopez's Stalker Camped Inside Her Hamptons Mansion For Six Days


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez had a stalker living in her Hamptons mansion for six days without being noticed, with the deranged fan camping out on her pool house sofa and making himself feel right at home before someone actually questioned why there was a creepy guy walking around her property and police were finally notified.

Jennifer Lopez
How could someone become so infatuated with J-Lo? Oh wait...

As first reported by the New York Post, 49-year-old John Dubis allegedly parked right outside the $10 million Water Mill propert in plain sight, and calmly moved into the star's pool house for the mini-break. Sources close to the bizarre situation told the NYP that Dubis moved into the Hamptons mansion without permission in early August and after parking his car in plain sight out in front of the property, he moved into the star's pool house as though he had been invited over by the superstar as a guest. The stalker slept on her couch and even cleaned up parts of the property, as well as setting up his own blog to post snaps from his 'holiday.' Using the online pseudonym 'David A Lopez,' he wrote such bizarre comments as “Some more david and jenny art, Newport, RI,” as a caption for a snap he took of J-Lo's mansion.

Jennifer Lopez's Stalker Moves In To Singer's Mansion


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez's stalker, John M. Dubis, made the singer's pool house his home for weeks. The 49-year-old was arrested after being discovered in the grounds of her mansion in the Hamptons. According to Southampton police, Dubis had been living on Lopez's property since early August, he moved in around 2nd August. He was bold enough to wander around the grounds freely and even published photographs on Facebook, according to TMZ.

Jennifer Lopez was away from her Hamptons home when her stalker moved in.

Dubis was finally discovered by a worker on Lopez's property on 8th August, when police were called and Dubis arrested. He initially claimed to be Lopez's husband (even though she is not married) when questioned by the worker. When the police were called he claimed he was the father of her children.

Boyfriend Casper Smart Makes "Smart" Move To Confirm Singer's Return To Idol


Jennifer Lopez

Rumours that J-Lo will be returning to American Idol this fall have been swirling for months, but even after the Deadline announcement that the singer had reportedly signed a $15 million season deal, nothing had been confirmed by the singer or Fox. Now however, it seems that a source much closer to J-Lo has spilled the beans. During an interview discussing his own show A Step Away, Jen’s significant other, Casper Smart, made the sort-of announcement when probed about the singer’s possible involvement with Idol.

Jennifer Lopez, Viva Movil Opening
Is JLo returning to Idol? Signs point to yes.

Casper is a backing dancer for Lopez and, when questioned by E! he is said to have confirmed Lopez’s highly anticipated return. Of course, it would make sense for American Idol producers to try to get Lopez back on the show, considering that she was a fan favorite and that during her brief stint as a judge, Idol enjoyed some of its highest ratings since the beginning. Again according to E!, a source close to the Love Don’t Cost a Thing Singer mentioned that Lopez’s possible return to American Idol made perfect sense.

So successful was country music judge Keith Urban, that American Idol have signed up for more. Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly confirmed the news, and hinted that something may be close for Jennifer Lopez to make a return to the show.

"Keith did a great job last year. The fans really liked him. Keith's a really funny guy," Reilly said. "You could see how much he loved the show." Urban will slide back into judging action when Idol returns in January 2014.

But Will J-Lo be donning her winter attire and joining the country star on the panel?

Jennifer Lopez Sobs As She Receives 'World Icon' Award In Front Of Ex-Hubby Marc Anthony & His New Girlfriend

Singer Jennifer Lopez not only had to accept an award but also had to perform live with Pitbull in front of her ex-husband Marc Anthony and his girlfriend, Topshop heiress Chloe Green, at Miami's Spanish Premios Juventud awards.

J.Lo

It's been a month of highs and lows for 'Jenny From The Block' singer Jennifer Lopez. She faced severe criticism from the media, her fans and human rights organisations after she performed at the president of Turkmenistan's birthday party, topping off that lovely lucrative cake of torture and human rights horrors with a big, round "Happy Birthday Mr. President" cherry. Oops.

Jennifer Lopez Asked To Explain Herself Following Turkmenistan Gig


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez must have thought she was about to make the easiest couple of million dollars of her life when she was asked to fly out to an isolated part of Central Asia and perform a one off show for a handful of dignitaries, and rather than doing her research into the country she was about to perform in the diva went straight ahead with the concert without a second thought. She might be regretting her readiness somewhat though, as her show in the former Soviet province of Turkmenistan has whipped up a storm of controversy.

Jennifer Lopez Hollywood Walk
J-Lo is caught in the middle of a PR disaster

Turkmenistan is somewhat comparable to North Korea, given that it is ruled over by a cult-driven dictator - Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov - who maintains absolute power and authority over the Turkmen population, regularly manipulating his power for personal gain. In the past and even today the county is seen as a human rights red ward, with strick regulations on the media and internet, public speech, education and propaganda all in force, making social media sites like Twitter strictly forbidden among the public and tightly regulated among visiting parties - something the J-Lo team didn't seem to realised, in particular her choreographer J.R. Taylor, who wrote on Twitter; "I wonder were all my Turkmenistan followers are!? Hit me up!"

Uh-Oh: J.Lo Serenades Turkmenistan's Human Rights Flouting President


Jennifer Lopez

Turkmenistan, if you've never heard of it, is a country that sits below Uzbekistan, just across the waters from Azerbaijan. No? Never mind. USA's 'Jenny From the Block' singer J.Lo was performing a corporate concert hosted by the China National Petroleum Group to an audience which included Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, the president of the former Soviet country. After singing three songs to rapturous applause, the 43 year-old entertainer decided to round off her performance with a sweet rendition of 'Happy Birthday' to 56 year-old Berdymukhamedov, unaware of his history of human rights violations.

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez Has Been Criticised For Singing 'Happy Birthday' To Turkmenistan's President.

Berdymukhamedov AKA The Birthday Boy AKA Arkadag ('The Patron') is notorious for having journalists thrown into prison and critics of his government tortured in a country known to be the second worst in the world for press freedom and that fiercely discriminates against ethnic minorities. The incident is particularly bad press for Amnesty International supporter J.Lo with her involvement in Mexico helping to curb violence against women, according to The Week, as it shows an incongruity between her supposed morals and her loyalties as a working performer. Despite being reportedly paid a high sum of money to perform, J.Lo maintains she wasn't aware that Turkmenistan is ranked as the third most oppressive place in the world to live.

Jennifer Lopez Apologizes Following Controversial Turkmenistan Performance


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has issued an apology to anyone she may have offended when she performed in the developing Asia nation of Turkmenistan. The singer/actress performed a hit-filled private set for the president of the former Soviet republic, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, on his 56th birthday, ending the night with a rendition of 'Happy Birthday Mr President' - a move that has earned her heaps of criticism given the appalling human right record in the dictator-run country.

Jennifer Lopez Hollywood Walk
J-Lo denied any knowledge of the country's past

Turkmenistan is known by the Human Rights Watch as "one of the world's most repressive countries," in which the gas and oil-rich hermit nation is ruled by the cult of Berdymukhamedov, who uses the country's natural resources to make himself and his dignitaries immensely rich, whilst most of the population lives in poverty. J-Lo has since issued an apology for her performance and for the warm reception she gave the president, admitting that had she known about the country's human rights history she would have never agreed to perform their in the first place.
