(LOS ANGELES) — While Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are no longer husband and wife, they’re still partners on their Spanish language talent show ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen. And for the most part, all seems rosy — unless, of course, Lopez happens to be slapping her ex on camera, People reports.
Ellen DeGeneres recently interviewed the former couple, which airs Monday, where Lopez said tensions between the couple are often played up for the show — including an un-aired scene where she smacks Anthony in the face during a disagreement.
“They put a sound effect in there,” Lopez tells Ellen. “It sounds like I’m slapping him hard.
Anthony disagreed, saying, “She can’t help herself. Trust me, it hurt.”
