UPDATE: According to legal documents obtained by The Dirty, the "Vivir mi vida" singer filed for divorce from Shannon de Lima in a Florida court on Dec. 16.

After weeks of uncorroborated rumors, Marc Anthony has officially announced that he’s splitting up with Shannon de Lima, his wife of two years.

“After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage,”  Anthony in a statement released Sunday (Dec. 18). “We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter.”

Rumors about Anthony separating from de Lima surfaced following his Latin Grammy presentation with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez on Nov. 17, after which the two kissed on live television.

At the time, however, Anthony did not confirm the rumors were true. While he is executive producing Lopez’s upcoming Spanish-language album, the two have no plans to get back together as a couple.

Anthony and de Lima, a 28-year-old Venezuelan model, were married in 2014. They have no children together.
