Us Weekly: Jennifer Lopez & A-Rod ‘definitely see a future together’

2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter

This is so gross. Or is it? Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are a thing. I’m a J.Lo Apologist, but my God, she makes it difficult. Her picker is so OFF. You can put her in a room full of eligible, interesting men and she’ll end up with the biggest douchebag in the room, never fail. It’s like she has a douche-radar. Anyway, J.Lo and A-Rod (J-Rod) have been happening for weeks, if not a few months now. So Us Weekly devoted this week’s cover to their situation, and Us Weekly is really hyping it like A-Rod is about to become the fourth Mr. Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer Lopez is through playing the field. The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer has been dating retired baseball pro Alex Rodriguez “for about two months,” a close Lopez insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. In that short time, those close to the 47-year-old multihyphenate have already deemed the 14-time MLB All-Star, 41, a more worthy mate than her previous fling, 17-years-younger Drake.

“He’s a better fit,” explains the insider, ticking off the new duo’s commonalities: They’re both Latino superstars and New York natives (their childhood homes are roughly 7 miles apart); both are parents (he shares daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis; she’s mom of 9-year-old twins Max and Emme with former husband Marc Anthony); and both are legends in their field. After decades of serial dating, both believe they may have found their match. Says the insider, “They definitely see a future together.”

Their connection was more than a decade in the making. For years, Lopez and the New York Yankees third baseman were casual acquaintances (she was first photographed with him and Anthony, a Mets fan, at a 2005 game). But even as the suave home-run hitter romanced the likes of Madonna, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, he always harbored a crush on Lopez. So when he attended her All I Have Las Vegas show in January, newly single after ending things with Silicon Valley tycoon Anne Wojcicki, he decided to make a play. “He went backstage to meet her,” says the insider, “and they swapped numbers.”

With her Drake fling fizzling, Lopez was primed for a new romance. “Alex swooped right in there,” says the insider. “It was perfect timing.” Rodriguez, now a Fox Sports analyst, was an ideal suitor. “He swept her off her feet,” says the insider. First came texts. Then came flowers. Says the insider, “He sent her a ton.”

Pals think Rodriguez could be the pop star’s guy. The thrice-wed Shades of Blue actress has said her dream man should have similar goals, be good with her kids and ooze confidence. Rodriguez rounds all three bases. Plus, there’s the potential for the Dominican baseball champ and the Puerto Rican triple threat, who recently enjoyed a romantic getaway to the exclusive Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club in the Bahamas, to become one of Hollywood’s top power duos. “They’re kind of like Jay Z and Beyoncé,” muses a source close to the pair, dubbed “J-Rod” by fans. “If people thought she and Marc were the Latin supercouple, this is on another level.”

J-Rod as the new Bey-Z? Doubtful. Beyonce has mystique and Jay-Z has his eye on the money. Jennifer is an open book which every douchebag in the world can read and A-Rod is King of D-Bags. That being said, so many “sources” are coming forward these days to say that J-Rod is the real deal. E! News’ source says the Jennifer and Alex “are heating up big time. They went from zero to 100 really quick.” That’s how she likes it. She loves the first rush. She loves being pursued. And what does Alex love? I think he loves passive-aggressively negging women into changing for him. Ugh.

Here’s the Instagram of J-Rod that Jennifer posted and deleted a few days ago.

    JLo….. always ready to be in relationships with a$$holes.

    I’m sorry, I’m no longer a big JLo fan. I mean, ‘on the 6’ is the only thing I remember JLo from, for real. That JLo was cool… But 47 year old JLo still acting like 27 year old ‘bronx babe’ JLo and not fully evaluating her potential partners, but instead just being ‘swept up’ every. single. time….

    It’s getting old. and I’m 30. Which means I left her ‘young love’ trope 18 solid years ago.

  2. Shambles says:

    I’m coming to the conclusion that I really don’t like Jennifer Lopez. At best she’s annoying as hell, at worst she’s a total attention whore. And A-Rod is a legend in his field?! Hahahaha. Legendary for all the wrong reasons.

    I’m sOOooOoOo glad that J Lo and A Rod are having such a wonderful time with their stupid romance while the rest of us are slowly watching our democracy die. Yay!

    • minx says:

      Same. Her only talent is self-promotion.

      • Cherise says:


      • QQ says:

        … But I’ve told ya’ll this for years!, Her Talent is tenacity at self promotion and Work ethic but outside of that and a good hair/body/management team she is at best Pressed for attention in ways that are unseeming at worst rude/high maintenance and generally Untalented ( Jesus Christ her Music.. the PITCH of her Voice!… Her Judging people on musical Talent LOL) .. she is gifted at being pretty though

      • Kosmos says:

        DEFINITELY TRUTH ! Her only talent is self-promotion…..I’m glad some people actually realize this. She and A-Rod won’t last, of course, but each of them probably wants a new fling to follow their recent last fling….

    • Sabrine says:

      Although she has tons of money, she’s still incredibly insecure and can’t be without a man for more than a week or two. She can’t be her own person for any length of time. Quality obviously doesn’t matter.

  3. RussianBlueCat says:

    Guaranteed, there will be a story in the tabloids how Mark Anthony is jealous of A-Rod and how he is a bad influence on his children. Then rumours of Jennifer getting fed up of A-Rod’s controlling ways which cause them to break up. But they will use the “busy schedules” excuse for the break up. This all leads to JLo and Mark growing closer again.

    • KB says:

      Lol at A-Rod being the controlling one rather than Marc Anthony. No one would believe that.

  4. Erinn says:

    So, is she a douchebag too? She spends so much time with the worst kind of guys – she has to be ‘okay’ with that kind of behavior. Girl is nearing in on 50 and she’s still after the same kind of sketchy men. Which is one thing when you’re single – but she has two 9 year olds that are exposed to these kinds of asshats.

    • BangersandMash says:

      Erinn… Excellent observation!!!

      I didn’t think of the “Mila Kunis effect”… maybe she has it too. Maybe Jlo is suffering from a case of ‘insecurities’ and ‘nostalgia for the past’ mixed with an unhealthy attraction for ‘charismatic/wild/bad boys’….. I would feel for her, if she wasn’t a 47 year old mother of 2, with more money and fame than 17 Casper Smarts/A-Rods/Marc Anthony’s put together…

      Growing up is hard in Hollywood

    • KB says:

      This. Reminds me of Halle Berry. Maybe they’re not just bad at picking men, maybe they’re just not great people.

      • Craven says:

        You aint kidding. Before Jlo recast herself as Americas sweetheart in American Idol she was a well known attention hog, impossible diva and…..a thief. People forget that for all Mariahs silliness, she has very good cause to dislike Jlo. Other people she stole from

        “If You Had My Love” was written for Chante Moore by Rodney Jenkins. Jlo liked it and got Diddy to cut a deal with Rodney in her favor. Chante Moore has discussed this.

        On multiple occassions, Jlo took demo songs from artists, left their vocals in without crediting them and lip synced them in public. The entire chorus of Play is Christina Milian and Ashanti is on both Aint It Funny and I’m Real. Both Ashanti and Christina have publicly discussed it.

        And that wind instrumentation all over Get Right was lifted straight out of an Usher song. And then she rushed that single release to get ahead of him. Diddy had to smooth that one over too.

      • Bridget says:

        JLO was ruthless. And not nice. Does anyone really see her as “America’s Sweetheart” or did she finally succeed in bringing her own reputation down with the Casper Smart years?

      • QQ says:

        YES YES YES all of this Both her and Halle This convo is giving me kinda .. Life?

      • Kosmos says:

        JLo as America’s Sweetheart? Oh, Gag….she’s so far from that it’s crazy…..that is just false advertising.

    • jinni says:

      People are always saying “her picker is off” when some famous woman goes out with a man that many don’t think highly of, but why can’t it just be water seeking its own level because she is off herself? JLo’s probably is just as bad as the guy she’s with and the same could be said about Katy Perry, Amber Heard, etc. These women pick douches because they are douches themselves; bird of a feather and all of that.

      All that said, I am definitely here for the fuckery about to pop off from these two.

      • Shambles says:

        Eh, I’m gonna defend Katy Perry. Russell Brand isn’t a horrible person, he’s actually pretty awesome. He just doesn’t need to be married. John Mayer, yeah, he’s a dick. But he’s probably really good in bed. Okay Katy, get some. She was dickmatized. And Orlando Bloom is harmless. He seemed like he was really into her, and they did a lot of charity work together. He’s just kind of goofy.

        And I feel like Amber Heard is kind of off the table for speculation, at least for now.

      • Bex says:

        While I definitely don’t believe this is the case with JLo, who has enough documented accounts of diva behaviour to make me believe she’s not the nicest person around, I have seen some really lovely women end up with awful men, usually because of low self worth. I don’t think it’s always true that like attracts like.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I’ve never been under the impression that she is a particularly nice or sweet person. I think she comes off a little fake in interviews and such, and I can fully believe the diva stories about her.

      • QQ says:

        I think it hinges on her ever so many “homegirl that tilts her head and smiles” oeuvre as well as the sickly sweet tone of voice/familiarity she uses when she does the “famous people interviews” as well as the fact she is pretty, We cut pretty folk ALL the slack

  5. Mar says:

    Jennifer wishes sh had an oz of Beyoncé’s talents. Please don’t compare these 2 idiots to Bey and Jay.
    Jennifer is so overrated.

  6. Angel says:

    Insanity is making the same mistake over and over and over again

  7. Greata says:

    Two messy and fame whoring people. This will not end well.

  8. Kristen says:

    She really does always go for the douche bags. Is Mark Wahlberg single? They’d be perfect together.

    Some people think that relationships are only exciting and passionate if there’s drama. Stability and consistency are boring. I used to be one of these people.

  9. Luca76 says:

    Sorry but I can’t help loving this he’s such an epic D-bag it’s great gossip . Remember when Carmen Diaz fed him popcorn at the Super Bowl? Will we see that level of crazy? I need the spectacle. Oh Jlo stay gold.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I remember when he had a screaming fight with his wife in the middle of Boston Common for all the tourists and kids playing in the Frog Pond to see.

  10. Skins says:

    J-Lo is always working, I will give her that, and the is pretty much what this is, work. Keeps her in the spotlight, has people talking about her, just like the Drake farce. With these two I keep thinking, who gets the mirror first?

  11. Lucy2 says:

    If it were just her, I would say have fun and live it up. But she has two kids and always involves them in every new relationship, and that has to be difficult for them. She either needs to be on her own for a while, or at the very least start separating those parts of her life until she is secure with a new partner.

  12. Donna says:

    I am already tired of the media-generated hysteria over their relationship and the faint self-satisfied smirk she’s sporting in the spate of pictures that have been published. Remember my prediction: Marriage #4 within six months. DIvorce #4 within two years.

  13. Bridget says:

    Only JLO would think that she and A Rod make a power couple. He is so disgraced, he may as well be kryptonite.

  14. lizzie says:

    Wait until she starts power lifting to look like a roided out pile of beef jerky for him

  15. jerkface says:

    I never thought I’d fall out of love with J Lo 🙁

  16. StormsMama says:

    He’s NASTY
    He may have a gorgeous body and beautiful eyes but that sh*t is truly skin deep. He is a dirty nasty playa and she’s a fool to touch that. Ew. Ew. Eeeewwwwww.

  17. Gaia says:

    People needs to relax. If they are happy then that is all it matters. I think they look super cute together. They are old enough to do whatever they want. She is a workaholic, dedicated mom who happens to be on the show biz and looks freaking amazing at 47. He has is own shine, is handsome and can hold his own without having to depend on her fame, money or contacts. Regardles of what people say, at the end of the day, as long as he treats her well and they have fun with their children of similar ages, is gonna be just fun to watch them everywhere in the media. I am so tired of just having to read about politics, Donnie and his team… lol … Bring it on J-Rod!
