The game of blackjack can do many things: make people happy, rich, upset, frustration and even break of marriages. The game can be quite addicting and many times, gamblers will become so wrapped up in the game they forget out their everyday lives including their spouses. It has recently come to light that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are getting a divorce because his online blackjack play became too much for his wife to bear.
Everyone has been wondering why the two would be splitting after they appeared to be so happy. Now it seems as though Marc’s love for blackjack has replaced his love for Jennifer. However, it appears as though blackjack is not the only reason the couple is calling it quits. A family friend told casino gambling news:
“They also clashed when she learned he owed millions in unpaid taxes on the Long Island estate. The other problem was that they couldn’t agree where to live. JLo’s career is in Hollywood and she wanted to live in their Malibu mansion and Marc loved New York. She was going to move to New York in a last-ditch effort to save the marriage. But last Monday I heard it was all over.”
It has also been rumored that Marc was playing at the high stakes tables at online casinos at the height of the Black Friday incident. JLo was apparently bothered by what was going on and she looked outside the marriage for happiness. Marc was also annoyed because JLo did not appreciate his interests and he looked outside as well.
More details are sure to surface about the reasons the celebrity marriage is now ending. It will be interesting to see if Marc Anthony continues his love of blackjack or if he calls it quits focusing on a new woman in his life.
