Marc Anthony is finally speaking out about his split from wife Jennifer Lopez
"I'll always love Jennifer," Anthony, 42, tells ABC News
in an interview airing Thursday.
Anthony has remained mum since announcing the end of his seven year marriage
to Lopez, 42, in July.
While Anthony joked
, "They're saying I'm single" during a concert in Colombia last month, witnesses told PEOPLE that he was aloof and visibly upset
before the show.
The couple recently reunited in the Hamptons
, but, according to Anthony's rep, the purpose of the get-together was to spend time with 3-year-old twins
Max and Emme.
