Jennifer Lopez's new husband Marc Anthony has splashed out on a pair of gold-feathered flip-flops for her - costing $23,400 (GBP13,000).

The salsa singer, who wed J.Lo in a secret ceremony earlier this month (JUN04), spotted the 18 carat footwear in a shop and decided to make the spontaneous purchase.

An insider tells British newspaper The Sun, "The flip-flops are completely over the top, but that's how Jennifer lives her life.

"They are very bling bling with thin shavings of real gold shaped like feathers. When Marc saw them in a shop he just had to buy them.

"He loves Jennifer's feet - she always takes good care of them and is always having pricey pedicures."
