Jennifer Lopez Marc Anthony Miami Dolphins - Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are no longer married but it seems that the stake Marc purchased in the Miami Dolphins in 2009 is still co-owned by them and they are still business partners in the team.

In 2009 Marc Anthony purchased a piece of NFL pie when he signed up to become a partner in the Miam Dolphins. The addition of the Latino star and by default, his more famous wife, may well have been a partial tactical move to bring in a more diverse audience, particularly some of Miami’s hispanic and Latino football fans.
Talking of the deal and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross at the time Anthony said:
“I’m not doing this as a singer; I’m not doing this as an actor,” Anthony said. “[It's] just because I love football. Steve and I, our visions are in sync, and this is a great, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of Steve’s vision.” – Source: ESPN.
He was also asked at the time if it meant J-Lo was a minority shareholder too and he joked that it made her a majority owner of his share, of course now that they have split that isn’t as funny anymore as it seems the deal is still a joint asset!
