Jennifer Lopez, who was hailed last spring by Us Weekly as Style Icon of the Decade, won the title very much over her ex-husband’s head. Marc Anthony, arguably the best Latin salsa singer of our time, had been trying to gain a whip hand over what J Lo should (and shouldn’t) wear throughout all the seven years of their marriage.
A source close to the couple told Us that Anthony, 42 this year, had always been opposed to his wife being a sex symbol. He had wanted her to wear inconspicuous, “wifey” clothes and would get at her for sexy and provocative outfits. “He would make her feel terrible about herself,” the source said.
Another source recounted that Anthony had raised objections to some of the photos made for her 2010 Us Weekly presentation, reasoning that a 40-year-old woman and mother of two children shouldn’t look “too sexy and unbecoming.”
It may have been one of the reasons behind the couple’s last week split, for other sources also spoke of the singer as a dominating and controlling person who tried to interfere with many spheres of Lopez’s life.
