Wednesday was a sad milestone for Jennifer Lopez, with estranged husband Marc Anthony filing divorce papers nine months after they announced their separation.
But the 42-year-old, who shares 4-year-old twins Max and Emme with Anthony, 43, didn’t let the blues show as she reported to work on American Idol.
The judge looked absolutely stunning in one of her sexiest looks yet: a skintight mesh and leather bondage dress, complimented with flawless makeup and a “Love” necklace around her neck.
And it was otherwise business as usual for Lopez on Wednesday’s performance show — and the competitors marveled to reporters about the singer’s professional attitude despite Wednesday’s big news.
“Jennifer is a superstar,” Colton Dixon said backstage. “I never would’ve known from her attitude tonight that that was released today. She’s a class act and so genuine, she’s a very independent woman and she knows how to handle herself.”
Lopez’s consolation prize, of course, is hot new beau Casper Smart, a frequent fixture on the Idol set.
“They are cute together!” Jessica Sanchez gushed of dancer Smart, 25.
In his divorce filing, Anthony asked for joint legal and physical custody of the twins, and requested that each party pay for their own legal fees.
The exes have remained amicable — collaborating on their new reality show Q’VIVA! The Chosen.
