Marc Anthony is following celebrities like Johnny Depp in covering up a tattoo he got during his marriage with a new one now that he and Jennifer Lopez are divorcing. But while Depp’s “Wino Forever” is a tattoo gaffe that people still laugh about, it sounds as if Marc managed a more graceful transition: He covered the “Jennifer” on his right wrist (pictured) with a State of Liberty for new girlfriend Shannon De Lima.
“State of Liberty” is apparently Marc’s pet name for Shannon, since she’s “freed” him from his past relationships. Marc first announced that he was dating Shannon in the first week of January; the tattoo session happened over New Year’s Eve in Miami. In addition, Marc and daughter Ariana (from a relationship with an NYC police officer named Debbie Rosado) got matching tattoos on their outer wrists. It isn’t clear what the tattoo says, though it’s probably a line of text, judging from the photos:
Despite this very public dis of his ex, the New York Daily News points out that Marc and Jennifer seem to be on good terms: They’ve agreed to still work together on the talent competition Q’Viva! The Chosen. In fact, at a recent screening of the premiere episode, Jennifer joked that their current working relationship was “very Sonny and Cher after divorce.”
