The “Get Right” star is set to take a break from her 10-year music career to get some “professional distance” from Marc Anthony, the Latin singer she married in 2004.
A source told MSNBC: “Jennifer hasn’t been able to be considered a real recording success since she’s been with Marc. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t go back and be Jenny from the Block.”
“Those days have passed, and it’s not what Jennifer or Marc want. Having another film success or being behind a really great show will be better for both their careers.”
The 39-year-old singer – who has one-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc - has reportedly signed on to produce Fox TV series “Rebel,” a remake of an Argentine telenovela about “a pop band made up of teens who go to an elite private high school.”
She is also set to be a producer on new film “Plan B,” which will be directed by Alan Poul. It will begin shooting in May and is due for release in January next year.
Both projects are associated with Nuyorican Productions, the company Jennifer founded with Benny Medina, the manager she recently reunited with.
