Marc Anthony's first wife, Dayanara Torres, has refused to comment on the salsa singer's announcement of his split with Jennifer Lopez. The former Miss Universe’s publicist issued a statement to the media that Torres “with all due respect, will not make any statement,” reports People en Español.
Torres married 42-year-old Anthony in 2000 and has two sons with him, Cristian Anthony Muñiz and Ryan Anthony Muñiz. The couple separated twice before Torres finally filed for divorce in 2004.
Four days after their divorce was finalized, Anthony married Lopez in Los Angeles. Torres has not always been so silent about her divorce from Anthony. In 2008, she cowrote a self-help book titled Married to Me: How Committing to Myself Led to Triumph After Divorce, in which she gives advice about finding happiness after divorce. Though she never named Anthony, she talked about how she spent days in bed after their split and how she felt the need to write a book when she went to the store and failed to find any resources for recent divorcées.
