Grammy-winning singer Marc Anthony and his wife are divorcing after a two years of marriage.

A brief statement said the decision to end the marriage was made mutually by Anthony, a New York-born singer of Puerto Rican roots, and Shannon de Lima, a Venezuelan model.

Anthony wed de Lima in 2014 at his residence in the Dominican Republic resort of Case de Campo.

It was the third marriage for Anthony, 48, who has six children from previous relationships. In 2011, he and pop star and actress Jennifer Lopez divorced.

Anthony has also appeared in TV and films, starring with Lopez in the 2007 movie El Cantante, about the life of salsa pioneer Hector Lavoe.
