Latin singer Marc Anthony will soon be free to marry girlfriend JENNIFER LOPEZ after filing for divorce from his wife - former MISS UNIVERSE DAYANARA TORRES.

The 34-year-old singer filed for divorce at a civil court in the Dominican Republic capital of Santo Domingo yesterday (27May04) - to enable him to be a free agent should he choose to walk Lopez down the aisle.

JUDGE MARITZA CAPELLAN has three days to issue a decision.

The I NEED TO KNOW singer married Torres in a civil ceremony in Las Vegas in May 2000.

The couple - who have two young sons, Cristian and RYAN - briefly separated in 2002, but renewed their vows in Puerto Rico.
