Though they seemed on relatively good terms following their split this past summer – “We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters,” they said at the time – exes Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are reportedly on the verge of a “vicious” custody battle over their 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
According to US magazine, Marc is seeing red over J.Lo’s new romance with 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart. When he saw photos of the new couple enjoying a happy holiday with the kids in Kauai, Hawaii over Thanksiving he apparently “hit the roof. It caused a huge blowup,” says a source.
Though the former couple had already agreed that Jennifer would have sole custody of the kids, the magazine says that Marc now “wants to make Jennifer suffer” and is “going back on his word and saying his wants joint custody.”
As for the ‘On the Floor’ singer, friends reveal that she’s prepared to put up a fight if and when the time comes: “[Jennifer is] ready to smash him if he tries anything…It’s getting vicious.”
Despite the photos of them together, the American Idol judge has so far remained mum on her new romance – and she’ll likely stay that way.
Earlier this year she explained, “As a mom, and having children, right now they’re my first priority. And because of them, I wouldn’t ever comment on anything until I’m in a serious relationship again. It would just be confusing for them and it would be unfair. And so at the end of the day, it’s about them.”
