One of the highlights of the Latin Grammys held on November 17 was the kiss that exes Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez shared following their duet of Olvidame y Pega la Vuleta.

Following this, Anthony took to his social media to post pictures of him kissing his friends – both men and women – so that people do not make a big deal out of his kiss with JLo. But the plan seems to have backfired, as quite a number of fans have been left wondering if Anthony is gay.

"Marc anthony being gay is somehow not surprising," noted one fan on micro-blogging site Twitter, while another added: "Tbh I don't have nothing against gay people but Marc Anthony caught me of guard."

Yet another noted: "Marc Anthony timeline full of pictures of him kissing men and he snuck one pic of him kissing a woman on some "I'm not THAT gay" shit"

It did not help matters that his wife of two years, Shannon De Lima, decided to end their wedding just after these kissing pictures went viral.

Meanwhile, a source close to JLo has revealed that she and Anthony have no plans to get back together now that he is no longer with De Lima. "Jennifer and Marc are not back together," a source told ET. "That kiss onstage was totally innocent and egged on by the crowd. Nothing there, nothing."

Anthony and Lopez were married from 2004 to 2011 and their divorce was finalised in 2014. They are parents to eight-year-olds Max and Emme.
