In 2011, Lopez and Anthony revealed they were ending their 8-year marriage in a statement to PEOPLE. The star couple share custody of their two children, 7-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian. "I felt like my whole life had fallen apart," Lopez said of the breakup. But the singer assures that there's no bad blood: "We love our kids, and we have love for each other. We always will."

If your first thought is, "That's a whole lotta skirt," you're not alone. It was probably a smart decision for Jen and Maggie to keep their tops simple with the bold, green Christian Siriano design.

It wouldn't be an award show without a seriously sexy J.Lo look. And the star certainly didn't disappoint in an art deco-inspired beaded sheer caftan gown by Zuhair Murad. She paired the couture dress with Stuart Weitzman sandals, her signature smoky eye and radiantly glowing skin.

The show went on for Lopez and Anthony – literally. After deciding to end their seven-year marriage in 2011, the parents of twins filmed Q'Viva! The Chosen, the couple's joint Latin American reality show that aired from January to April 2012. Their relationship is "very Sonny and Cher," Lopez joked in the premiere episode. Even when the show ended, the exes reunited again that year to duet on Lopez's Dance Again world tour, in which they sang their 1999 song "No Me Ames" (translation: do not love me).

The singer and actress reportedly purchased a $22-million pre-war penthouse in Manhattan's Flatiron district. Her high-gloss kitchen is mostly white (rumored to be her favorite color) and accented with a mix of tasteful wood tones. During the warmer months, should J-Lo tire of that breakfast bar, she can always eat outside: Her sprawling digs also have a whopping 3,000 square feet of terrace space.

The only detail most of Lopez and Anthony's wedding guests knew about their Beverly Hills nuptials before the fact? That they'd be attending "a beautiful afternoon party." What they got was just that: a casual affair, thrown together in just three weeks, but with plenty of bling, including a ruffled Vera Wang gown and $7 million worth of Neil Lane jewelry.

We may not think to wear multiple statement pieces (ahem: major hoop earrings, a shimmery top, zip-up skirt and knee-high metallic gladiators) to an American Idol red carpet event (or really, anywhere), but then again, that's why there's only one J.Lo.

We can always count on Lopez to do something show-stopping. Surrounded by an A-list guest list, the star celebrated turning 45 on July 24 in Southampton, New York, with a five-foot long coconut-cream-filled lemon cake made in the image of J.
