Marc Anthony Steps Out with Much Younger Woman

Jason Merritt/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- The 44-year-old singer was spotted Tuesday at Disneyland with his new flame, 21-year-old Chloe Green, and his 5-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

Anthony and Green were seen holding hands and cuddling as well as going on rides with the twins. Green, dressed in a denim shirt and jeans, was spotted holding Emme while Anthony pushed Max in a stroller.

Green’s father is Sir Phillip Green, the owner of British retailer Topshop. She has her own shoe line and also appeared on a British reality show, Made in Chelsea.

Anthony appears to be a fan of Topshop himself.

“Who ever doesn’t know about #Topshop #Topman in LA has to get in on it! Just had the time of my life at The Grove Amazing!” he tweeted Sunday.

Anthony famously ended his seven-year marriage with Jennifer Lopez in July 2011. Lopez, 43, is living with her choreographer, Casper Smart, 25.

Obama Campaign Deploys Marc Anthony, Red Hot Chili Peppers -- Two new Obama campaign Web videos targeting voters in Florida and Ohio underscore just how much the president is relying on star power to try to energize his base.

Singer-songwriter Marc Anthony delivers a message to Florida Latinos in the online spot, “The President Has Our Back.”

“Hi my name is Marc Anthony. Latinos are a force that can and will help decide this election. And it’s a good thing that we’ve got so much to say, right?” he says. “We have jobs, the economy, education. President Obama is on our side on all of them. We just have to make sure that he gets four more years to make more progress. The president has our back. So it’s time to let him know that you’ve got his.”

Anthony will host a fundraising reception and concert with President Obama in Miami Beach on June 26.  Tickets start at $250 per person for general admission and run up to $5,000 for a photo with Obama.

Another video features the Red Hot Chili Peppers “rocking for Barack” in Ohio – a free concert the band held to reward volunteers who spent the day phone banking and knocking on doors for the president in April.

“They’re here because they care about their country and they want to win this election,” campaign manager Jim Messina tells the crowd from on stage.

Marc Anthony Files for Divorce from Jennifer Lopez

Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez Play Nice on 'Ellen'

MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- While Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are no longer husband and wife, they're still partners on their Spanish language talent show ¡Q'Viva! The Chosen.  And for the most part, all seems rosy -- unless, of course, Lopez happens to be slapping her ex on camera, People reports.

Ellen DeGeneres recently interviewed the former couple, which airs Monday, where Lopez said tensions between the couple are often played up for the show -- including an un-aired scene where she smacks Anthony in the face during a disagreement.

"They put a sound effect in there," Lopez tells Ellen.  "It sounds like I'm slapping him hard.

Anthony disagreed, saying, "She can't help herself.  Trust me, it hurt."

Marc Anthony: Working With Jennifer Lopez Is Like ‘Riding a Bike’

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez's love affair may not have lasted in the U.S., but the two are making it work on their journey across Latin America as they film for their Univision TV series, ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen.

“We have a great relationship,” Anthony, 43, said in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America. “There’s a certain shorthand.  It’s how we started, when we started working together.”

Lopez and Anthony announced the development of the American Idol-style talent competition when they were still married, but began shooting the series after they split despite seven years of marriage.

Even amid reports the two are feuding over custody of their 3-year old twins, Anthony said he had no hesitation that the show must go on.

“Not for me,” Anthony said.  “The question was, what would it be like, having to go through this whole process in the middle of what we were going through.”

“But, it was just like, ‘Hey, what’s up? How’s everything? Ah, good,’” he said.  “It’s just, Jen, Jennifer is Jennifer.”

That kind of “shorthand,” as Anthony calls it, can be seen in the first episodes of the 12-episode series that follows Lopez, Anthony and director Jamie King as they travel throughout 21 Latin American countries auditioning singers, dancers, musicians and street performers to compete to be part of a live Las Vegas show to celebrate Latin American culture.

“It wasn’t difficult at all for me,” Anthony said of working with his ex. “I don’t know what she would say. …God knows.”

Anthony laughed when asked about J.Lo’s likening their post-split relationship to that of Sonny Bono and Cher, but described their happy, working relationship in another way.

“It was like, you know, just riding a bike,” Anthony said.  “It was just us...and we’re very much like that.”

Jennifer Lopez: Too Soon to Think About Marriage Again

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Lopez has been married three times, most recently to Marc Anthony.  Would she ever walk down the aisle again?  She's not sure.

During an appearance on NBC's Today show on Monday, host Matt Lauer asked her if she'd consider marriage again.  She replied, "I don't know.  It's not time to think about that, do you know what I mean?  It's still fresh."

Despite her split from Anthony last year, Lopez is still working with him on a reality series, Q'Viva! The Chosen, in which they attempt to discover talent in Latin American countries.  She told Lauer that Anthony will always be a part of her life -- especially since they have two children together -- though she conceded that their collaboration has been challenging for her at times.

She said, "We're human.  I'm not going to sit here and lie to you about it.  But at the end of the day there is real love there, and there is a family there and that comes first.  And at the end of the day we also really love this project."

Lopez is not only keeping busy with Q'Viva! The Chosen, but with American Idol, too.  She's also been named a presenter at the Academy Awards ceremony, scheduled for Feb. 26 in Hollywood.

Marc to J-Lo: Go See a Shrink

Theo Wargo/WireImage for Tommy Hilfiger(NEW YORK) -- Marc Anthony has told Jennifer Lopez she needs to see a shrink to help her figure out why she’s unable to be alone and goes straight from one relationship to another, RadarOnline reports.

The website says the estranged couple had yet another argument over the weekend, with Marc getting upset about wanting to see their twins more often.  A source close to the situation tells RadarOnline, “The real source of Marc’s anger is Jen’s relationship with back-up dancer Casper Smart.  Jen is very serious about him, and it makes Marc extremely jealous.”

The source says Marc “told Jen she [should] see a psychiatrist to deal with her issues to figure out why she always needs a man in her life.”  The source recalls that Jen and Ben Affleck “had just broken up when she got hot and heavy with Marc.”

Marc is now dating Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima.

Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony Custody Battle Brewing?

MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- From Ashton and Demi, to Kim and Kris, and Arnold and Maria, it’s been a year of high-profile divorces in Hollywood, but the split between power couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony after seven years of marriage  seemed to be a relatively amicable one — at least where the children were concerned.

Now the claws just may be coming out, according to Us Weekly magazine. Rumors are swirling that the once amicable exes aren’t so friendly anymore and that they’re headed for a fierce custody battle.

“The original agreement when they split was that J.Lo would have primary custody of the kids, but since this has all come out, Marc is looking to have joint custody,” said Us Weekly magazine’s Rebecca Bienstock.

Anthony is reportedly furious over photos of Lopez and her new squeeze, backup dancer Casper Smart, frolicking seaside with the couple’s 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme, while on vacation in Hawaii over Thanksgiving.

“Sources close to Jennifer told us that Marc is not that interested in having joint custody of the kids,” Bienstock said. “He’s really just using them to get back at her because he’s so angry that she’s moved on.”

Since announcing their plans for divorce in July, the American Idol judge has been spotted with actor Bradley Cooper, and most recently, 24-year-old Smart. Anthony is reportedly “furious” that Casper, who has been arrested for drag racing, was driving their twins around, Bienstock explained.

Lopez and Anthony’s representatives have not responded to ABC News’ request for comment.
