Marc Anthony: The Truth About His Split from Jennifer Lopez

Michael Tran/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- J-Lo is a sexy, high-voltage superstar, now one of the faces on the popular show American Idol.

Marc Anthony is the king of salsa,  a two-time Grammy winner who has sold millions of albums worldwide.

Together, they were one of the steamiest power couples in Hollywood -- until six weeks ago, when announced they were splitting up.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ John Quinones, for the first time, Anthony talks about why his marriage to J-Lo crumbled.

“I’ll tell you that it wasn’t something sensationalistic happening,” Anthony said.

Although tabloids claimed that he broke up their 7-year-old marriage with affairs, Anthony says “absolutely not.” The reason for their breakup, he says, was much simpler. Their marriage just no longer “worked.”

“It was a realization on both our parts. So you know it wasn’t shocking. These things happen,” he said. ”It was a decision that we made jointly.”

Dodging hounding questions about his pending divorce, Anthony has been taking motorcycle rides as often as possible to escape and spending time at his home in Long Island, N.Y., “Casa Marc Anthony,” which he calls his “haven.”

Anthony also continues working hard to promote his new clothing line with Kohls, his upcoming tour and continuing with filming his reality show Q’Viva! The Chosen, co-starring with none other than his now estranged wife.

“This is not a funeral. This is not a burial,” Anthony said of his divorce. “This is just two people who came together and just realized -- and so I’m saying that it wasn’t sustainable the way it was, and that’s that.”

Jennifer Lopez Says She Still Believes in Love

PRNewsFoto/L'Oreal Paris(NEW YORK) -- In her first interview since announcing that she and Marc Anthony are divorcing, Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair that she still believes in love.

“I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love...It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive -- determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

In the article, Lopez opens up about her life with Anthony and the example she hopes to set for her children. She also touches on her relationship with Sean P.Diddy Combs and Ben Affleck, the diva rumors that surround her and her attitude toward money, fame, and of course, love.

She describes the path that has brought her to her current state of mind. “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.”

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer,” Lopez tells Vanity Fair. “We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic -- and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”
