Saying his personal life is off-limits, singer Marc Anthony refused to confirm Tuesday whether heâ€™s married to Jennifer Lopez. During an appearance on NBC TVâ€™s â€˜Todayâ€™ show, co-host Matt Lauer asked the Latin singer how heâ€™d spent his weekend. â€œI see where youâ€™re going with this, and Iâ€™m going to preface it with just saying â€” yâ€™all know I donâ€™t talk about my personal life,â€ Anthony said. Lauer replied: â€œSo, I â€” do I need to congratulate you?â€ â€œYeah, I have two albums coming out, man. Absolutely. And I would appreciate it,â€ the 34-year-old singer said. Anthony, who performed in Rockefeller Plaza, was wearing what appeared to be a wedding band on his left hand. When Lauer continued to ask whether a wedding had taken place Saturday at Lopezâ€™s home in Beverly Hills, California, Anthony responded, â€œThat would fall into the category of personal. And thatâ€™s where Iâ€™m going to leave it.â€
Later that morning, Anthony continued to evade marriage questions from the five women on ABCâ€™s â€˜The Viewâ€™. â€œIâ€™ve always been just so private and Iâ€™ve kept whatâ€™s mine, mine,â€ Anthony said. â€œItâ€™s still hard for me to understand, what is to me, the morbid fascination with celebrity,â€ he added. â€œI just want to sing, I want to work on my music, I want to make my movies, thatâ€™s all I want to do. I understand, you know, the interest but I really donâ€™t understand the fascination with it.â€ Anthony said no matter what may be written about him and Lopez, he plans to â€œlet it go. I have nothing to say about anything. My life is my life, thatâ€™s the only thing I have.â€
Lopezâ€™s representative didnâ€™t immediately return a call Monday, but said that he had no comment. This would be the third marriage for the 33-year-old Lopez â€” the first was to waiter Ojani Noa in 1997, the second to Cris Judd in 2001. Noa lasted a little more than a year; Judd for nine months. The singer-actress also was engaged to Ben Affleck, her â€œGigliâ€ co-star, but they cancelled their plans in September 2003 amid a huge media frenzy and broke up in January. Anthony divorced former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres last week in the Dominican Republic. They married in 2000 and have two young sons; Anthony also has a daughter from a previous relationship. His new album, â€˜Amar Sin Mentirasâ€™, means â€˜To Love Without Liesâ€™ in Spanish.
