J-Lo and Marc Anthony minority owners in Icon Brickell?

Estefans,jlo,marc372Stop us if you've heard this story before: Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are allegedly buying a three bedroom, two and a half bath, 2050 square foot condo at Icon Brickell.  Sound familiar? That's right, years ago, before the big real estate bust, the duo allegedly bought the penthouse at Icon South Beach. That never happened. Clearly they have a thing for Philippe Starck, but rumor has it that beleaguered developer Jorge Perez has more of a thing for having celebrity residents to boost sales of the troubled building and there may be some incentive stuff going on in this supposed deal. In fact, the Anthonys were seen schmoozing with Perez at the Viceroy at Icon several months ago. Whatever the case, Anthony is pretty excited about the whole thing, telling People that the apartment is going to be "the sexiest place in town."  In addition to the Lopez-Anthony "buy," we are told that the two bedroom, two bath 1450 square foot unit next door to them will be sold to the Dolphins of which the couple is now a minority owner. Hmm. As for the apartment next to that one? We hear Venus and Serena Williams are in the market for a deeply discounted or free  Miami condo, too.
