Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima are officially calling it quits.

After a brief separation, the Latin singer and his wife of two years released a statement on Sunday that they plan to divorce, ET can confirm.

"After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage," the statement obtained by ET, released in both English and Spanish, read. "We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter."

Reports surfaced in November that Anthony and De Lima had separated. The couple quietly married in the Dominican Republic in November 2014, after two years of dating.

Initial news of the split came one day after Anthony was spotted without his wedding ring at the Latin GRAMMYs, where he and ex-wife Jennifer Lopez also made headlines for exchanging a friendly kiss onstage after performing together. The moment had plenty of fans hoping for a rekindled romance between the two, but a source told ET at the time that "Jennifer and Marc are not back together."

Earlier this week, Anthony's father, Felipe Muñiz, discussed his son's marriage troubles in an interview on Telemundo Puerto Rico's Dando Candela, revealing that the 48-year-old singer and 28-year-old Venezuelan model hadn't yet filed for divorce.

"He's going through tough times right now, but he knows how to accept what comes out of this," Muñiz said during his son's concert in Puerto Rico last weekend, also acknowledging that Anthony and his wife of two years had "lot of problems." Muniz also noted that his son has "experience" with troubled marriages.

This was Anthony's third marriage. He was previously married to Lopez, with whom he shares twins Emme and Max, and Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, with whom he has two sons, Cristian and Ryan. De Lima has a son, Daniel, from a previous relationship.
