NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's marriage has hit a sour note: The superstar couple announced Friday they are breaking up.

The two married in 2004 and have 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

In a Friday statement from her publicisit to The Associated Press, the pair called the decision to end their marriage a "very difficult decision."

They say they have come to an "amicable decision" on all matters and ask for privacy.

It's Lopez's third marriage, Anthony's second.
