Jennifer Lopez hadn’t driven a car in 25 years & she got a Porsche for her b-day

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are all smiles as they arrive to the 2019 CFDA Awards in NYC

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez clearly want to be their own “brand” as a couple. They’re both crazy-rich already and they both have their separate celebrity brands. But they want to be J-Rod: The A-List, Over-the-Top Couple. They want their brand to be excess & family. They want free sh-t and they’re happy to promote that free sh-t with excessive YouTube videos in which they highlight their excess & family. So… what did Alex Rodriguez give Jennifer for her 50th birthday? A new car. A Porsche, to be exact. What could have been revealed in an Instagram post instead became an eight-minute YouTube video where we get to see A-Rod chatting with his daughters and setting up the car deal and then revealing the car to Jennifer (he felt her up during the reveal, which tells me he enjoys blindfolds).

The car is a 2019 911 Carrera GTS Porsche, which retails for $146,420 and he got it in lipstick red, and it was customized by the Ocean Auto Club. I assume it was comped too, considering this is just a not-so-lowkey ad for Ocean Auto Club. Alex also says that Jennifer “hasn’t driven in 25 years,” which I didn’t believe until Jennifer said the same thing. Jennifer was happy about her gift, and she said, “I’m going to have to drive? It’s beautiful! I’ve never driven a car like that! I’ve never had a car like this. I’ve never driven a car, period! My heart’s beating out of my chest!” She seemed genuinely pleased with her gift, which makes me feel… okay about this. I was going to grumble even more, but hell, she seemed beyond thrilled. It’s a wonder that, like, Marc Anthony never gave her a car??

    If you haven’t driven a car in 25 years please practice before bringing a car with crazy horsepower to populated areas. But its from ARod, what am I thinking? He got the car most likely so he could drive it (maybe even with her in the passenger seat).

    • Nanea says:

      I’m a very experienced driver, and have had access to all kinds of crazily fast cars, thanks to both my dad and FIL having worked with different car manufacturers. But Porsches, Lambos, Bugattis require extra training, as handling them isn’t exactly intuitive.

    I loathe their ostentatious display of wealth. Just marry the jerk so you can divorce him in a couple of years.

    • Jane says:

      ^This! Her over the top birthday and cake, now this…dear Lord, I’m already cringing at the thought of their wedding.

    • Micky says:

      Yes! I couldn’t agree more. They are tacky as hell.

    • Himmiefan says:

      I don’t know much about him, but despite her talent, there’s something pitiful about her.

    • ByTheSea says:

      Right? And both are from humble beginnings. Imagine what they could do if they were charity- and change-minded. The schools they could fund; the programs they could start. What a shame.

    • Dani says:

      Seriously. Dislike them both very much at this point.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I love watching her YouTube channel, it’s living vicariously, I don’t want to watch someone in an office taking public transport lol I could just look in the mirror for that ha!

    • PointingScreaming says:

      As a single sole parent of a teen, I sigh when we hit triple odomenter digits again & again- I wash our old car to feel better. Sorry, but this makes me hate rich ppl….

  3. Jerusha says:

    Is that real fur she’s wearing?

  4. Harryg says:

    They are just so tacky all the time. I imagine their house is full of mirrors.

    • Eliza says:

      Maybe they have his and her centaur paintings of themselves over the bed?

    • Jane says:

      I heard that A Rod has a picture of himself as a Centaur over his bed. I never saw a picture. Apparently one of his ex- girlfriends commented about that. The mirror thing wouldn’t surprise me either. I just cannot handle their “boujee” life-style. I just find it tacky.

  5. ME says:

    Rich people getting expensive things for free…how fair. She said she’s never driven a car but he said she hasn’t driven for over 20 years. I remember her driving with her friend Leah Remini in an episode of an MTV Diary (or whatever it was called) years ago.

  6. Rhys says:

    One thing about JLo is she never pretended to be anything but herself, clearly enjoying her lifestyle and choices. I could never understand how someone in her 50’s, with two much life experience would still be so thirsty for attention and pomp, but she lives for it. I mean, most people really wind up by then but this one wants more. She never complained about her celebrity and seems to be that gal who is always up for some partying. I find that remarkable and because of that I think these two work together well.

  7. dumbledork says:

    I wish she could explain her Fiat car commercials from a few years back then. Her cruising around the Bronx?

    • ByTheSea says:

      Oh my! That is true! LOL

    • tealily says:

      Haha I forgot about that!

    • theotherViv says:

      Actually every time that commercial came on I wondered if she was really the one driving- it looks like she just sat in the car or at most drove around one corner on a studio lot. Please everyone watch it again. It’s a truly weird commercial.
      As someone with a license who has driven maybe twice in the past 20 yrs I can kinda believe she doesn’t actually drive. But if you gave me a Porsche for MY birthday I would totally hop in and take a spin, too.

    I’m waiting for the breakup and the please respect our privacy statement because they value their private lives.

  9. Mariettaj81 says:

    So, apparently not only has she driven in 25 years… but, Ben Affleck gave her a Bentley convertible when they were together for her birthday. Lol…and she drove it. Someone on DM also mention she was in a car accident with her daughter in 2014. So, maybe she forgets that she drives?

    And why would you want to get a comped car for your fiancées bday? It seems like he really didn’t put much thought into the gift. All he said was,”How can I get this for free?”

    Lame.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Leah was the one driving during the accident. The commercial was in a studio and she got flack for that, for not driving in the Bronx, which I didn’t get, like commercials are not filmed in studios all the time.

  10. Mee says:

    Thank you! I was gonna say 25 years, bullshit! she was driving in the commercial. And if it’s ‘Never driven in my life’ then how did she get to ‘In Living Color’ rehearsals or her auditions the first several years in LA?? She had a driver then?? Bitch stop lying

    • Brasileira says:

      Exactly. In fact, there was an instagram not longer that 2 years ago in which she and amazing Leah Remini were havind a lot of fun….. and Lopex was driving them.

  11. 2lazy4username says:

    If Jennifer wanted a Porsche she would have had one by now.

  12. ariel says:

    I feel like this is in the same vein of Ciara’s ex getting a ridiculously expensive watch for their 5 year old’s birthday. It is just for show and show off. Very little actual thought of the person receiving the gift.
    Obviously, Ms. Lopez is an adult. But if she hasn’t driven in 20 years, she is clearly not into driving or cars.
    But A-Rod likes to show off. And she does to.
    Literally the only purpose of the gift was to be ostentatious.
    Which is a bit creepy.
