Jennifer Lopez might have loved herself enough to end her marriage, but that doesn't mean she wasn't devastated by her split from husband of seven years Marc Anthony. That's why pal Randy Jackson says Lopez's American Idol family will always be there for her.
"We've been doing auditions, and she's rising above," her fellow Idol judge tells People. "She's strong, she's a trouper, she's a great girl. She's amazing."
Jackson, 55, says that the 42-year-old "On the Floor" singer isn't letting her personal drama get in the way of her work. And if she does need any assistance, he's there for her. "Whatever help we need to give, we'll give her," Jackson says.
Lopez and Anthony, 42, announced their split on July 15. Insiders say the couple came to the decision after months of nonstop arguing, thinking that a divorce would be the best thing for their 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
Since the split -- and despite gossip-mag rumors of infidelity on Anthony's part -- Lopez and Anthony seem to be on amicable terms. They were photographed together in August in the Hamptons, where they put aside their differences for a getaway with their kids.
And Lopez said in an interview with Vanity Fair that Anthony will always have a place with her family. "We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive," she said. "He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children."
And Lopez hasn't let the split weight her down. She was photographed over the weekend partying hard in Las Vegas after performing at the iHeartRadio festival (Jackson also played). According to one source, one of J.Lo's backup dancers even gave her a lap dance -- and she was "laughing and loving it."
Sure sounds to us like she's "rising above."
