Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima

Marc Anthony and Shannon de LimaMarc Anthony enjoyed a slow but suc­cess­ful rise to fame as a singer and song­writer in the Eng­lish music scene. He’s won two Gram­mys, among sev­eral other notable awards, and even landed a few film roles across big stars like Den­zel Wash­ing­ton, Al Pacino, and Sean Penn.

Despite his own achieve­ments, Anthony’s fame really hit the roof in 2004 when he mar­ried his third wife, inter­na­tional super­star Jen­nifer Lopez. Hav­ing already fathered three kids from his first two mar­riages, Anthony became a dad once again when Lopez gave birth to their twins—Maximilian and Emme—in Feb­ru­ary 2008. Three years later, they announced that their mar­riage was over. Their joint state­ment described the split as ami­ca­ble, but Anthony still wasn’t too impressed when Lopez started dat­ing her much younger back-up dancer, Casper Smart.

So, Anthony did what a lot of other men would prob­a­bly do—found a younger woman. In Jan­u­ary 2012, he started dat­ing then 24-year-old model Shan­non de Lima. At 24, she was almost 20 years younger than him. But that didn’t stop him from pro­fess­ing his love for her over Face­book and Twit­ter. They even posed for a “fam­ily pic­ture” with Lopez and Smart at Anthony’s son’s birth­day party. About a year later, Anthony and de Lima called it quits. They didn’t really spill too much on what went wrong, but the announce­ment came only two days after reports sur­faced about Anthony leav­ing a hotel min­utes before Lopez walked out.

Anthony didn’t waste any time mov­ing on, this time with some­one even younger, 21-year-old Chloe Green. It’s pretty cer­tain that Green wasn’t drawn to Anthony’s money—she’s the heiress to the high-end retailer Top­shop. They first went pub­lic with their rela­tion­ship in Feb­ru­ary 2013, and Green was even spot­ted spend­ing qual­ity time with his twins.

One prob­lem young women often have with dat­ing older men is hav­ing to deal with their bag­gage from a past life. For Green, it was too much to han­dle. She report­edly felt like Anthony was still in love with Lopez, and it caused too much ten­sion in their rela­tion­ship. Although he was the one to end it, insid­ers said Greene was relieved because she felt like being a step­mother at 22 was too much to handle—after all, she was only a cou­ple years older than Anthony’s eldest daughter.
