Marc Anthony briefly touched on his recent split from Jennifer Lopez during a concert in Colombia on Saturday night.
According to a report by People magazine, the singer was heard joking about his break-up. "They're saying I'm single," the 42-year-old said on stage, according to the magazine. The singer was also spotted "playfully flirting" with women in the crowd.
The couple officially announced their separation after seven years of marriage on Friday.
"We have decided to end our marriage," the couple said in their joint statement to OnTheRedCarpet.com. "This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
