Marc Anthony is here to set the record straight:

No, his marriage to Jennifer Lopez did not end due to an affair. In fact, there was nothing sensationalistic about the conclusion to their seven-year union at all, no matter what you may have read.

“People are trying to peg it on things because it was so shocking,” Anthony told Nightline this week of the rumors when, in fact, the couple simply made a joint decision.

The artist said all you can do is shake your head when chatter turns to such sordid tales as an affair between himself and HawthoRNe co-star Jada Pinkett Smith.

“When something like that happens, it’s laughable. We’ve been friends for years. Jada, Jennifer, me, [Will Smith], for years,” he said, adding: “It was a flight attendant, it was the pilot – I heard it was this guy sitting next to me in a rehab in Houston. I’ve heard it all.”

Anthony is simply trying to move on now, but he’ll have to do so professionally and personally: TNT canceled HawthoRNe yesterday.
