Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez buy $15 million Manhattan apartment

Hey, “Lo-Rez” is still a thing! Who would have thunk it? The 48-year-old actress/diva/Vegas showgirl and her 42-year-old former baseball-playing beau recently hit the one year mark in their relationship, which is like 5 years for a non-celebrity union, am I right? Since then, they’ve traveled the world, raised money for Puerto Rico (which is a great thing, no shade here) and joined forces to launch a (still un-launched) business. Now, they’ve taken the next, big step and bought an apartment together.

Back in October, reports surfaced that the couple were looking into buying a place, right about the time Jennifer put her $27 million, 6,500 square foot NYC penthouse on the market. And, apparently now they’ve gone and done it. Of course, both Jennifer and Alex maintain their own separate properties in Miami and Los Angeles.

E! News reported that the power couple purchased a stunning 4,000 square foot, three bedroom, 4.5 bathroom unit in the swanky 432 Park Avenue building in Manhattan. The building has the distinction of being the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, so I can only imagine the views. StreetEasy posted photos of the sleek, modern unit, which also includes a library…you know, for all of that reading they have time to do. The building’s amenities include a private restaurant, indoor swimming pool, fitness center and mini-performance venue.

Just because they now share an (occasional) roof over their heads, the pair isn’t in a huge rush to walk down the aisle, but it’s not completely out of the question. In the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Jennifer stated:

“I do believe in marriage. And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now. It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t. We both entered the public eye in our early 20s and overachieved right from the start. And that affects every dynamic in your life, from your family to your work to your relationships. We have a similar makeup.”

I have a feeling it’s only a matter of time before these two are putting embroidered “Mr.” and “Mrs.” hand towels in one of those 4.5 bathrooms. As I’ve said before, I think they make a good couple, and have what appears to be a happy blended family. Living together is always the true test of a relationship, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Honestly they make complete sense as a couple.

    • Eleonor says:

      yes, it seems a really good match.

    • LAK says:

      I don’t think they are a real couple. Arod likes women that are so muscular that they have muscles on top of muscles. When he dates a woman at a normal size, they soon develop big muscles that would get them a prize at those muscle women competitions.

      JLo looks her usual self. She hasn’t changed her body to reflect his type. The day she starts to look super muscular is the day their relationship can be judged to be genuine.

      • Domino says:

        Hmm but he dated Anne the founder of 23andme and she was not muscular. They met each other’s families and Anne’s mom bashed him by saying he was too into baseball, not intellectual enough, so I am pretty sure that was a real relationship.

      • LAK says:

        That relationship lasted a minute. Look at all his long term relationships, from ex-wife, to various ex-gfs including Madonna, Cameron Diaz to Kate Hudson. They all started out as normal body type whatever that happened to be, and by the end of the year as their relationship with him progressed they had turned into super muscly roidy looking women.

        When he first started dating Anne (and JLo), i didn’t judge, because they don’t become roidy, muscular body types straight away. It’s a progression. When Anne didn’t turn into a roidy muscular body type, i knew that relationship wasn’t real or it wouldn’t last much longer, regardless of relationship issues and lo and behold it didn’t last long.

        JLo is different bexause she can maintain fake relations for years – see that dancer she ‘dated’ and was ‘engaged’ to. For all these years she is with ARod and remains her usual body type rather than his roidy type is a big red flag about their relationship.

      • Jegede says:

        @LAK – Don’t forget the boob jobs they seem to get.

  2. Shotcaller says:

    I bet it’s not in the Bronx 😀

  3. Frome says:

    In that grand tradition of Jlo boyfriends he will cheat on her in the most humiliating way possible and she will fold it in to her “oh shucks, I’m just a girl in love with love” shtick, which a 48 year old really shouldn’t be able to get away with but she will.

    She picks clear dbags despite red flags everyone can see a mile off. I find her ridiculous

  4. Jayna says:

    She would get married in a heartbeat or at least be engaged. I never expected him to be on the J-Lo marriage timeline, though. He won’t let her rush him, which is a good thing.

  5. Sarah says:

    So much for age brInging wisdom.

  6. psl says:

    These two and their fake PR relationship. J Lo is pathetically insecure to me – with the damn selfies, and posting pics of her and A Rod and their families……honey, it IS okay for you to be alone, She may have a ton of money, but she’s a mess.

    • Play it Again says:

      Agreed. The apartment is probably part of a six-month extension to the relationship contract. A-rod has become such a fame whore (so different from the earnest young talent he used to be), he’s more than a match for her. She’ll hang in there until her insecurities get the better of her again and she moves on.

  7. Miss M says:

    I too think they make sense as a couple.
    On a vapid note, did JLo get breast implants?

  8. NotForNothing says:

    Her NoMad apt looks way nicer!

  9. Karen says:

    They did not buy it together. He bought it in an LLC Company.

    Also 3 bedrooms for 4 kids for that price!

    • Jayna says:

      Thanks for that info.

    • maryrose says:

      3 bedrooms for 4 kids? Nope. This is his half a floor apt. But who bought the other half? J-Lo? It would be a sweet set up. And I LOVE her current apt better.

  10. Whatever says:

    You guys need to see the picture of the bathroom of this place. The view is to die for! Totally jealous!

  11. Jazzie30 says:

    That kitchen! Good for RoLo!

  12. Mimz says:

    I like them together – for one, he doesnt need to be on her payroll, apparently nor is he yet another backup dancer. So I hope it lasts and I like their blended family. They all seem to get along.

  13. gatorbait says:

    Those views are to die for!

  14. KiddV says:

    My son has a friend who lives in that building (extremely wealthy family). He has the whole floor but it’s not the penthouse. My son says it’s amazing.

  15. Nayru says:

    Jesus, living together is not the true test of a relationship. Relationships are not based on how good a roommate you can be.

  16. Sassy says:

    I picture this when I see them : they workout together. Then, afterwards, they exfoliate each other. Then, after they apply lotions, they hold each other while staring at themselves in a large mirror, making sexy faces and being fascinated with how they look together.

  17. Newyorking says:

    A 4,000 sq. Ft. apartment costs $15 million??? That seems ridiculous. I know of people who have paid $10 million for that size facing Central Park. What would $5 million more bring? Of course said couple also renovated so maybe $2 million more, but they didn’t need to, everything was in pristine condition but the wife wanted to customize, as one does!!!
