The salsa artist has said that he still supports the American Idol judge, and claimed that he will remain close with her for the sake of their children.
"I'll always love Jennifer. She knows that," Antony said on Good Morning America earlier this week. "Jennifer's a wonderful, wonderful woman, a wonderful mother, a wonderful friend.
"We understand this to be a long story. This is not a short story," he continued. 'We're going to be in each other's lives for many, many, many years, and I'm glad that our friendship is that strong."
Anthony and Lopez announced their separation in July after seven years of marriage together.
The singer insisted that there was no dramatic reason behind the break-up and that the relationship had simply stopped working.
"It was a realisation on both our parts, it wasn't shocking," he added. "These things happen."
