Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Planning Long, Drawn Out Divorce

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, who announced their separation in July after 7 years of marriage, are in no hurry to make their divorce official as they have a lot of shared assets to work out in a settlement before they officially divorce.

According to Radaronline, "They have been working out terms of a settlement before they officially file for divorce. There is no rush to do so because both sides agree on the formal date of separation." So, the couple hasn't actually filed for divorce because they need time to divvy up all their join businesses and homes etc. Either that or J.Lo is too busy shacking up with 24 year old back-up dancers and forgot to sign the divorce paperwork.

The source continues, "Marc and Jennifer have homes, businesses, and are minority owners of the Miami Dolphins football team. It's complicated, and it could be at least several more months before final terms of the settlement are agreed upon."

Settlement first, divorce later. How classy they are being about all this. It's so nice to see that J.Lo isn't crazy, but Marc on the other hand is throwing a bit of a temper tantrum (more on that later).

"They will formally file in California, because it's a no fault state, and the divorce will be legal six months from the time it's filed,” says the source.

However, they may be treating this divorce as "all business," but Marc Anthony is letting his temper get the best of him and reportedly cannot work on his and J.Lo's talent show "Q'Viva" anymore.

Once he found out that J.Lo was dating (or parenting) 24-year-old back-up dancer Casper Smart, Anthony threw a hissy fit and threatened to quit the show.

Anthony refused to go to Peru and Chile to host and executive produce their joint-talent show and had a huge blow-up over the phone with Lopez.

"Marc and J.Lo had a tense conference call when she was in Morocco. Inevitably, their discussion boiled down to her boyfriend (Smart) and Marc made the decision not to work with Jennifer last week as a result," a source tells Star.

Anthony reportedly called the shows boss, Simon Fuller and threatened to quit. Lopez was even photographed in Lima, Peru, and Santiago, Chile last week filming the show without Anthony.

Anthony's bottom line was, "quite simply, J.Lo. I can't work with her." He's such a divo.

Meanwhile Casper Smart is enjoying all of this. J.Lo took him and her kids to Hawaii for Thanksgiving, where he frolicked around the beaches, playing with her kids like some kind of step-dad in training.

Then, last week, J.Lo and Casper left the family at home and went together to Morocco where Lopez was set to perform at a mall opening, but unlike the other dancers who probably flew coach, Casper joined Lopez on a private jet.

He tweeted, "Getting all my stuff ready and packed for Casablanca tonight. Off to Morocco!!!" Enjoy it while it lasts, because the cougar cub rebound guy never sticks around for ever (i.e Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore).
