El Cantante is once more a solo act.
Puerto Rican singing sensation Marc Anthony and his girlfriend of over a year, the smoking hot Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima, have broken up – putting the singer back on the market a year and half after his high-profile split with superstar Jennifer Lopez.
"The amicable breakup became official right in mid-January,” Anthony's rep confirmed to E! News in a statement.
Anthony let the world know he was dating the sultry Venezuelan last January when he tweeted: "To Shannon, my statue of liberty, kisses baby!"
Lopez and Anthony split after seven years of marital bliss. They had twins, Max and Emme, who are now 4.
Both Lopez and Marc Anthony have been in the news recently.
Besides her show-stealing looks at a number of award shows, JLo was forced in December to tone down her sensual “Dance Again” tour in order to perform in Indonesia and Malaysia. The governments in those countries told the singer that “making love” moves were not acceptable
Meanwhile, Marc Anthony was spotted with De Lima on Miami Beach tanning and getting some R and R before heading to the Dominican Republic, where he opened an orphanage. He also went down to the country to perform his “Gigantes” tour along with singers Marco Antonio Solis and Chayanne.
