(LOS ANGELES) -- Marc Anthony had hoped to reconcile with Jennifer Lopez, but gave up and filed for divorce when she told him she was in love with Casper Smart, TMZ reports.
Anthony filed for divorce from the American Idol judge last week, some nine months after the couple separated.
A source tells TMZ, Anthony wanted to give their marriage another shot and had a heart-to-heart conversation with Lopez a few weeks ago in hopes of a reconciliation. The source says that's when Lopez admitted that she was deeply in love with Smart and was just interested in that relationship.
