Jennifer Lopez has revealed the moment she knew it was time to leave Marc Anthony.

In an excerpt from her new memoir, she reveals she was preparing for a photo shoot when a panic attack came on, prompting her to leave him.

“As I sat there getting made up, my heart was beating out of my chest and I felt like I couldn’t breathe… I became consumed with anxiety… I leaped from my chair… It was one of those moments when you’re so scared you can’t even scream. In a blur of fear and panic, I blurted out the words: “I don’t think I can be with Marc any more.” Then I burst into tears.”

She writes that people didn’t realise “life really wasn’t that good. My relationship was falling apart and I was terrified.”
