Now that the shock of the divorce has died down, Jennifer Lopez is finally talking about her decision to leave Marc Anthony after 7 years of marriage. In an interview with Vanity Fair, she admits that this was the hardest decision that she ever had to face because she wanted her family to work. She said, quote, "To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself . . . if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now." Jennifer also said that she still believes in love, and Marc will always have a special place in her heart with her family. She’s making it sound like everything is great between her and her ex, but Marc has gotten the tattoo of her name covered up on his wrist.

And now that J.Lo doesn’t have that combined income, she finally agreed to return to American Idol. She was holding out for a pay raise higher than the $12 million she earned last year for judging, and it worked. She will be getting paid over $20 million to judge this year.
