The rumors are true: Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima will divorce after two years of marriage.

Anthony, 48, a New York-born Puerto Rican singer, and Shannon de Lima, a 28-year-old model from Venezuela, said in a short statement to Us Weekly that the decision to divorce was mutual.

"After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage," the couple said. "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 of an impending split surfaced after Anthony shared a kiss with his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez on the Latin GRAMMY stage in November. The couple divorced in 2011.

Anthony and de Lima wed in 2014 in their newly built Case de Campo resort they built together in the Dominican Republic.

This is the end of Anthony's third marriage. He has six children from his previous relationships.
