Pop stars Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split two years ago, but they still have some unfinished business. The “American Idol” judge legally wants her last name back, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, J. Lo is ready to go from Jennifer Muniz (Anthony’s real last name) back to Jennifer Lopez.

The ex-lovebirds tied the knot in June of 2004, but have been separated since 2011. Almost a year ago, Marc Anthony filed divorce papers in court but Lopez has not responded until now.

Lopez told People that her “whole world fell apart” after the breakup. Since the split, the “Selena” star has been romantically linked to former backup dancer Casper Smart while 45-year-old Anthony has been spotted with 22-year-old Topshop heiress Chloe Green.

Marriage hasn’t worked out for these two, but they do have one thing in common. Both parties have filed for joint custody of their 5-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

“It’s about love and that’s what I constantly remind myself of, because I kind of let society get inside my head, like ‘Oh, it shouldn’t be like this. I did this, I did that. I failed,’” said Lopez regarding her family dynamic. She continued, “And it’s like, no. [My kids are] happy, they’re healthy, they’re loved more than anything in the world and they’re going to be fine. I want them to know that.”
