J. Lo Ended the Marriage Erica J. Marcus August 2, 2011 Sky: Celebrity Gossip Jennifer Lopez told Vanity Fair that she initiated the split from husband Marc Anthony. The news of their divorce last month was a surprise to the industry and fans alike. Said Lopez, "It's not that I didn't love myself before. Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now."
