Reports: Marc Anthony and Shannon De Lima split after two years of marriage

Marc Anthony and Shannon De Lima are ending their union.

E! News and Us Weekly report that the 48-year-old Love Is All singer and 28-year-old Venezuelan model have recently separated after two years of marriage.

The news comes on the heels of Anthony’s  headline-making appearance at the 17th annual  Latin Grammy Awards, during which the multi-hyphenate entertainer received the Person of the Year award – as well as a much-talked-about kiss from his ex-wife, singer/actress Jennifer Lopez.

During his acceptance speech, Anthony compared the moment to "kissing a sister." And Lopez's manager, Benny Medina, told TMZ the entertainers, who share twins, are "absolutely, categorically, 100% not back together."

Nonetheless, Lopez offered heartfelt remarks during the tribute to Anthony Thursday night. "Marc, you are a living legend who has laid bare your heart and soul on your musical journey," she said in Spanish. "We've learned so much and we've grown so much, and you've always been so many things in my life: my mentor, a twin soul, a father who's not only the person of the year, he's the person of all time."

Anthony dedicated the honor to his five children and "all those people who told me I would never make it." He did not mention De Lima.

Anthony and De Lima were first romantically linked in January 2012, seven months after Anthony and Lopez announced their plans to dissolve their seven-year marriage in a joint statement.

Following a brief split in January 2013, Anthony and De Lima reconciled, eventually marrying in a private ceremony in the Dominican Republic in November 2014. They do not have any children together.

USA TODAY has reached out to a rep for Anthony for comment.
