Their behaviour today took the cake in terms of playing nicely, as most exes don't hold hands unless they're trying to send a message of togetherness.

The 42-year-old American Idol judge looked lovely in a blue leather dress that made the most of her fabulous curves.

She appeared to be glowing in bronze-toned makeup and bright, cherry coloured gloss on her lips.

Her 43-year-old ex looked cool in a military-style jacket over a crisp white shirt and blue jeans as they made their way into the Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa.

Although they may have looked nice, the two were not beloved by reporters after showing up fifteen minutes before the panel was set to end.

They caused an outrage amongst critics after refusing to answer questions.

When the audience members started to attack, Anthony said: 'This is a tough crowd. It's too early for this.'

At least he and Jennifer seemed to be making a united front, especially given the recent claims that Marc wanted his make J.Lo 'suffer' because of her relationship with toyboy lover Casper Smart.

According to a report that surfaced last year from Us Weekly, their relationship was getting 'seriously ugly.'

Meanwhile another recent report has emerged claiming that Lopez has been paying 24-year-old backup dancer Smart a whopping $10,000 a week.

'Jen is taking extra special care of Casper,' a source told Star magazine.

'She hated having to whip out her credit card every time they go to dinner. And it bummed her out that Casper had to borrow money from her to buy Christmas presents, including hers.'

The insider explained: 'So Jen figured it's easier to give Casper a weekly stipend, and she thought $10K was a nice round number.'

The payouts will have a big impact on Casper, who go-go dances at L.A. club Boulevard3 for a mere $250 a night.

The magazine also claims that Marc is not happy with this financial decision.

'Marc is livid that Jennifer is throwing money away on this punk!' the source revealed. 'He feels she shouldn't be spending it on Casper. The kids are one thing - but her boy toy is a whole other ball of wax!'

If he is upset about her younger lover, he shouldn't be: he is also dating a 24-year-old, model Shannon De Lima.
