Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announcedtheir plans to end their seven-year marriage, insiders are recalling signs thatmay have indicated that the couple was having problems.

Us Weekly reports that Anthony wanted to select Lopez's wardrobe lastyear during a photo shoot for her Style Icon Of TheDecade spread.

Anthony urged the magazine not to use a photo of Lopez heconsidered to be "too sexy and unbecoming for a 40-year-old mother of two," anunnamed source told Us.

"He would make her feel terrible about herself if she wantedto wear something sexy," added another source. "He likes her to dress in ademure, 'wife' style. He hated the fact that she was a sex symbol."

Marc was described as generally being "very dominating" byyet another insider. "He wants to control everything Jennifer does."

A spokesperson for Anthony did not respond to Yahoo! bypress time.

On July 2 -- 13 days before Lopez and Anthony released astatement about their impending divorce -- Lopez appeared on HSN to promote hernew fragrance, Love And Light.

TV Guide made a montage of video clips of Lopez discussinglove and relationships -- including Anthony -- during her network visit.

When commenting about the couple's chemistry duringtheir performance on the "American Idol" finale, the HSN host Diana Perkovic describedthe pair as "in love." Lopez responded with a polite correction, "Yes, we dolove each other."

Lopez told Perkovic the concept of her 2010 perfume, Love AndGlamour, was about "love and your relationship and your glamorous life, and everythingsorta outside of you."

Lopez said Love And Light takes a different focus. "I wantedto go to the core of who you are and what is really inside you," she said.

In a separate interview with HSN's Colleen Lopez, the entertainment mogul said, "Really the most important relationship that you have iswith yourself. Life is really about change. And sometimes that can bescary. But the truth is, you have to do that. You have to push yourself so you can breakthrough your own boundaries and try new things and do new things."

People magazine reported that Lopez and Anthony made their lastpublic appearance together on June 7 at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala in New York.

Anthony did not join Lopez when she met the royal couplePrince William, Duke Of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge, on July 9. Lopez's mother, Guadalupe, joinedher instead.
