Jennifer Lopez leaves Marc Anthony in Father’s Day tribute

Marc Anthony is missing in action from Jennifer Lopez’s Father’s Day tribute.

The 52-year-old Let’s Get Loud singer kept quiet about her ex-husband, 53, as she honored her fiancé, Ben Affleck, and her father, David Lopez, in her Sunday newsletter.

Lopez called the Oscar winner, 49, a “consistent, loving, selfless father” in the touching message.

She noted that Affleck — who shares Violet (16), Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — also “will care for her 14-year-old twins, Emme and Max, on a no-obligation basis.”

The ‘Halftime’ star continued: ‘I’ve been sitting in the front row watching you dad for over a year now. … You are affectionate and involved every time they are with you and it is honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

“Thank you for all you do for all of us,” she concluded. “We appreciate and love you dearly.”

When she posted a similar sentiment via Instagram, multiple users said, “What about Marc Anthony?”

Another asked: ‘No love for Marc? Ouch.”

Lopez also gushed about her “gentle” and “kind” 80-year-old father.

“Thank you for not making me feel weird or alienated, but seen, compassionate and understood when the ‘celebrity game’ came to town,” wrote the ‘Marry Me’ star. “You showed me the most important thing in life that any parent can show anyone: being a good person. You did it after your own example.”

Lopez did not mention Anthony in her newsletter, nor did he include any photos of the Latin salsa performer.

The former couple married in June 2004 and welcomed Emme and Max almost four years later. They separated in July 2011 and finalized their divorce in June 2014.

Lopez told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest in 2017 that she and her ex-husband were in “an amazing place” in their co-parenting relationship.

“We will always be good friends,” the “Maid in Manhattan” star told the talk show hosts. “I will always be there for him, he will always be there for me.”

While Lopez was in a relationship with Alex Rodriguez at the time, she separated from the retired MLB player, 46, in early 2021 and quickly moved on with Affleck.

The couple, who previously dated from 2002 to 2004, got engaged for the second time in April.

Anthony, for his part, last month proposed to model Nadia Ferreira.
