Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima Split
The couple have called it quits after dating for more than a year
It’s over! Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima have called it quits after dating for more than a year.
“Marc is no longer dating model Shannon de Lima,” his rep Blanca Lasalle tells PEOPLE exclusively. “The amicable breakup became official right in mid-January.”
De Lima and Anthony – who went public with the romance last January on Twitter by calling his model girlfriend “my statue of liberty” – didn’t show any sign of discord before their split.
The couple were spotted on Jan. 16 in New York City at Marquee, where an observer noted, “Shannon was dancing up a storm with her friends while sipping champagne and taking iPhone photos of the themselves and the light show. At one point, Shannon even jokingly gave Marc a lap dance when Pitbull came on.”
The reason for their split? “The truth is they have been having a great time together, but it no longer worked,” says a source.
As for Anthony, it seems he’s moving on. “Marc is in a good place,” the source adds. “Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don’t.”
In a recent PEOPLE cover story, Lopez opened up about her painful split from Anthony, saying it felt like her “whole world fell apart.”
