Following years of terrible strife, Jennifer finally declared the marriage over in a single act of defiance – by agreeing to do another season of “American Idol,” against Marc’s desire.
And even though the macho singer is worth about $60 million himself, insiders expect him to go after Jennifer’s much larger bank account.
“There was no prenuptial agreement when they got hitched in 2004, so she could be on the hook for as much $125 million,” an insider told The ENQUIRER. “But her attorneys will undoubtedly argue that Marc made tens of millions himself and that she shouldn’t have to pay a dime.”
Marc, 42, is very upset because his 42-year-old wife not only decided to serve as judge on another season of “Idol,” but also signed for a summer movie – which clashed with his career plans, divulged a close source.
The Latino heartthrob “felt betrayed,” added a family friend, because they had already announced that they were teaming up for a Latin reality show/talent contest called “Q’Viva! The Chosen.”
“It was HIS deal and Jennifer was crucial to it,” noted the friend.
“Q’Viva” producers say the show is set to film this autumn throughout Latin America – and that both Jennifer and Marc remain committed to it, added the source.
But juggling the time schedule between “Q’Viva,” “Idol” and the new movie is going to be extremely difficult for Jennifer.”
While Jennifer is back on top, Marc is NOT.As of January 2011, Marc reportedly owed the IRS a whopping $3.4 million in unpaid taxes – which could intensify the divorce battle over the couple’s assets.
