Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are finally officially divorced. Of course most people likely thought that had long since taken place but it hadn't. The couple's divorce was only finalized on Monday nearly three years after the two separated. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John Sandoz both finalized the divorce and awarded Anthony and JLo joint custody of their twins Max and Emme.

According to sources, Jennifer Lopez will have physical custody of the twins most of the time. Anthony will have the six-year-olds seven days per month. Neither will pay child or spousal support to the other.

Anthony finally settled a long dispute with his former ex-wife Dayanara Torres, and he didn't walk away nearly as easily. He has been ordered by a judge to pay her $26,800 per month is child support.

Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez back in April of 2012, but the two had split up in July of 2011. Lopez recently split from boy toy Casper Smart, a young man 18 years her junior, after having dated/lived with him for almost three years. He was one of her back up dancers when they first started seeing one another.

Marc Anthony's most recent Spanish album--called '3.0,' has been a huge hit. Jennifer Lopez has a new album called 'A.K.A.' that was just released this week. She is presently making the late night talk show rounds, chatting about her new record and her recent break up. Nothing has been said about her divorce from Marc Anthony, however. It seems that's really water under the bridge.

Were you among those who believed Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were already long since divorced? It would certainly be interesting to poll a group of both his and JLo's fans to see if they realized that up until this past Monday that the two were still legally married.
