We thought these two would definitely go the distance! New reports say George and his wife Ann have decided to amicably split — even after she gave him one of her kidneys!
“The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement,” a representative for the couple said in a statement. “They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, The Lopez Foundation.”
Ann and George met in 1993 and have one daughter, 10-year-old Mayan Lopez, who is also in show business.
Many are shocked with the report that the long-time couple is divorcing. What’s even more shocking is that George’s soon-to-be ex-wife gave him one of her kidneys in 2005. George was suffering from a genetic condition that caused his kidneys to deteriorate and Ann decided to offer up one of hers.
Here’s our question: Should she ask for her kidney back? (We kid… sort of.)
