Amicable or not, divorce sucks.
That's why experts say that having a strong support system --friends, family, counselors, whoever -- is vital following a break-up.
For Marc Anthony, after his separation from former American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, that post-split support system may have included the 44th President of the United State of America, Barack Obama.
Last year, the President invited J-Lo and Marc to watch Super Bowl XLV at the White House. Thought friendly with both, Obama clearly sided with Anthony after the divorce, choosing to put a little distance between his administration and "Jenny from the Block."
Because Florida is a key battleground in this year's presidential election, both Obama and Mitt Romney have already campaigned in the Sunshine State in an effort to influence voters, especially Hispanics. However, neither candidate has done so with a multi-platinum, Grammy-award winning salsero. Earlier this month, the Obama camp even debuted a campaign video targeted at Hispanics featuring Anthony.
"Latinos are a force that can, and will, help decide this election," the singer says in the ad. "And it's a good thing that we've got so much to say, right? We have jobs, the economy, education. President Obama is on our side on all of them. We just have to make sure that he gets four more years to make more progress. The president has our back. So it's time to let him know that you've got his."
What does it cost to have Obama's back? Depending on where you want to sit, $100 to $5,000.
