Marc Anthony Becomes Minority Owner of Miami Dolphins
The singer bought stake in the Miami Dolphins and will become a minority owner, the football team announced Tuesday.
Jennifer Lopez's husband struck a deal with Stephen Ross, the New York-based real estate entrepreneur who bought a 95 percent stake in the Dolphins franchise in January. With a goal to rebrand the team, Ross said he wants to fill up the stands with "a blend of entertainment and winning football," the Associated Press reports.
He isn't the first music star to put money on the NFL team. Gloria Estefan and her husband, producer Emilio Estefan, also bought a small stake in the club last month.
Anthony will also perform the national anthem on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" on Oct. 12 against the New York Jets as part of the NFL's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
