junction box canopy adopter - is there a such thing?

I am trying to replace one dinning area pendant with two pendant lights, the problem is there is only one junction box.

I am going to need some sort of "canopy adopter" to take the wires in that junction box and then split them to two sets of wires, one set goes left, another set goes right, and between the left and right there needs to be enough distance to give the two lights space (kinda like an up side down T shape).

I googled and also searched on amazon, nothing really showed up.

Is there something like that?

There are several different manufactures of surface mount raceways. Wire mold is one of them.

Use the existing box as the point to split into two new boxes. Install a blank cover.

I am trying to avoid cutting holes in the ceiling.

And not sure about the attic, never tried to crawl into attic (yet)

You don't want to cut holes in the ceiling. You don't want surface raceway. You could fasten cables direct to the ceiling. I not sure what other options there are.
