It's official. Nearly three years after they announced their separation, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are legally divorced.
Although the pair split in July 2011 after seven years of marriage, Marc didn't file divorce papers until April 2012, even though both had moved on romantically. Jennifer didn't file a response until a year-and-a-half later, dragging out the process even further.
It is still unclear why the proceedings lasted for more than two years, given both parties asked for joint legal and physical custody of their twins, Max and Emme, and have remained amicable since their split.
But the singers are far from the first celeb couple to take their time divorcing. See which other Hollywood separations were equally as drawn out!
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills
We know the former Beatle wishes this headache of a divorce had ended much sooner! The musician and his second wife separated in May 2006 and were soon embroiled in one of the nastiest divorce proceedings Hollywood has ever seen. By the time it was all said and done, 21 months had passed and Heather was $42 million richer.
Morgan Freeman and Myrna Colley-Lee
Married for 23 years, the pair separated in December 2007. During their divorce, rumors about a romance between Morgan and his step-granddaughter E'Dena caused quite a stir, though the actor vehemently denies the tryst. His divorce from Myrna was finalized in 2010.
Shania Twain and Robert "Mutt" Lange
The country singer separated from her record producer hubby after he allegedly had an affair with her best friend. Their divorce was finalized more than two years later (possibly due to an infidelity clause in their prenup).
Liza Minnelli and David Gest
It took five long years for Liza and David's divorce to go through, mainly due to the constant accusations they threw at each other. At one point, David even accused the singer of beating him in alcohol-induced rages.
Courteney Cox and David Arquette
Known as the friendliest exes out there, Courteney and David didn't finalize their divorce until, well, they felt they had to. They separated in October 2010 and remain good friends. They officially terminated their union in May 2013, in part due to the actor's serious relationship with ET correspondent Christina McLarty.
