Jennifer Lopez has asked a judge for permission to take her children on tour.
The 42-year-old American Idol panelist will embark on a series of concerts with Enrique Iglesias this year but faces legal problems with her four-year-old twins Max and Emme accompanying her.
After her fellow performer and father of her children, Marc Anthony, filed for divorce in April, a court ordered that their offspring should not cross the border of California without prior permission.
Now Jennifer and 43-year-old Marc will both be outside of the state as he kicks of his own gig dates in August, according to TMZ.
The singer and actress has filed documents asking for and her estranged husband to arrange shared custody schedule for the duration of them being away from home between themselves.
However the parents won't find out the court's decision until briefly before they are due to travel.
A court hearing has been arranged for June 26 and Jennifer's tour with Enrique begins in July.
Lopez has been dating her back-up dancer Casper Smart for the past six months, and apparently he knows how to make her feel special.
A source told People magazine: "He treats her like a queen. Casper centers everything on Jennifer."
