The sighting (TMZ has the pic) – which instantly raised questions about the status of the estranged duo's relationship – comes nearly a month after Lopez and Anthony announced exclusively to PEOPLE, "We have decided to end our marriage" after seven years.
Only a reconciliation apparently wasn't the reason for the Hamptons get-together. "The intention was to spend time with his kids Emme and Max, and they had a beautiful time. He's been with Max and Emme a few times now," Anthony's rep tells PEOPLE.
In addition to his twins with Lopez, 3-year-old Max and Emme, Anthony is father to three older children from previous relationships.
This week also brought the news that Lopez is returning to American Idol next season.
