Alex Rodriguez ‘is fully aware that this relationship is… hanging by a thread’

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Call it Quits!!! **FILE PHOTOS**

The Madison LeCroy-Alex Rodriguez story went down around February 9th/10th. That was when Madison told people that an ex-baseball player had been sliding into her DMs. People were convinced that the guy was A-Rod and there seems to be a growing pile of evidence to suggest that those assumptions were correct. In recent days, Page Six even dropped an interesting little gossip nugget: A-Rod got Madison to sign a nondisclosure agreement. Perfectly typical for someone you claim to have never met, right? So, obviously, that whole thing embarrassed the hell out of A-Rod and Jennifer Lopez. But was it the thing which started this whole breakup/reconcile drama? J-Rod keeps insisting the LeCroy thing had nothing to do with anything. Which is why I think it was the first domino in what was probably a series of revelations about Alex’s philandering.

What’s really going on between Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez? On Friday, March 12, E! News and multiple major news outlets confirmed that the two had split and ended their engagement after four years together. But on Saturday, March 13, the pair issued a joint statement saying, “All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things.”

Hours later, a source close to the couple revealed exclusive info to E! News about the status of J.Lo and A-Rod’s relationship and two-year engagement. The insider said the two were caught off guard by how quickly reports of a breakup had spread.

“Alex is convincing Jennifer to try and work things out. Jennifer is giving herself time to think about their future,” the source told E! News. “They have several investments together and their children are incredibly close. The idea of untangling it all seems like such a massive undertaking that she doesn’t want to exit the relationship too quickly.”

While the two are not calling it quits for now, the source added that “Alex is fully aware that this relationship is currently hanging by a thread.”

This is not the first time J.Lo, 51, and A-Rod, 45, have hit a rough patch, the insider said, adding that “things have been bumpy in the relationship for the last six months.” A previous source told E! News on Friday, March 12, that the two “have had issues for a while.”

“Jennifer was ready to end things with Alex several months ago,” the first source told E! News on Saturday. “After fighting for weeks and living separately, Jennifer was done. But Alex convinced her that he would be better.”

A different source close to the couple told E! News earlier on Saturday that no third party was involved in the rough patch that hit Jennifer and Alex’s relationship, and that recent reports about him and Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy are not true.

“Things have been bumpy in the relationship for the last six months” and “Jennifer was ready to end things with Alex several months ago…” Hm. What’s really going on here? I feel like there was a bigger incident which led to all of this drama, which has apparently been happening for months. I absolutely think Jennifer is the kind of woman who will stay in a relationship for the business deals and to save face, which A-Rod knows too. So is she actually trying to extricate herself from his web of deception or is she just trying to ride out this storm and she’ll just stay with him for all of their financial connections? Eh. And given everything… I think Madison LeCroy was just the side chick who was dumb enough to brag about it. He’s got other side chicks who are more discreet, but Jennifer still probably knows about them.

    I’m sorry but she’s looking like another Khloe K. Just to keep a man. I wish she wouldn’t put up with this shit and move on.

  2. The Other Sarah says:

    My hot take: the breakup announcement was one of them following through on an ultimatum. Given that A-Rod gave the first comment and flew to Jlo in DR, I think it was JLo who gave the ultimatum and A-Rod caved on ~something~ after he saw she was serious about breaking up.

  3. whateveryousay says:

    You can be happy alone, I promise.

    I think for JLo though she’s happy that A-rod is in essence her hype-man. No other man she was with was ready for her to be “bigger” than him, and he is. But the dude is cheating on her, or was and she just needs to let it go.

  4. Seraphina says:

    “Jennifer is the kind of woman who will stay in a relationship for the business deals and to save face” — Did she not drop P Diddy like a hot potato when that incident at the club with the gun went down? If memory serves me correctly, Hispanic media was calling her out because she was a role models for young Hispanic girls. So yeah, she stays to save face and leaves to stay face.

    Poor JLo, such a bad radar for men. I have NEVER seen anything interesting in any of the men she has dated. To each their own.

  5. Mrs. Peel says:

    It brings me joy to know A-Rod is spirilling – I know, it’s not right, but never liked the guy, never will. She deserves so much better.

  6. B says:

    She never seemed that into him, tbh.

  7. LillyfromLillooet says:

    The thing is, you don’t decide to stay together once–you keep deciding it. Once your partner does something so treacherous as to negotiate an NDA with someone, you just don’t go back. You can hang around, you can have breakfast, own companies, vacation together, whatever. But there is a point when you stop choosing someone and start marking time.

  8. bibi says:

    Like I said last week. Aholes always try to convince the girlfriend to give them another chance, and I think Jennifer is ready to let this one go, but she finds all kinds of excuses not to: like the kids, like the businesses, so that she doesnt have to let him go. And also, JLO has her pride, she cannot leave ARod because of 30 year old Madison Lecroy. Once the lecroy story goes dead, she will leave him. Give her time, girl has some pride.

    • Dlc says:

      I think this could be the right call. She has pride, and she loves being in love. When the love is gone she WILL leave, it is just a matter of when.

  9. Size Does Matter says:

    Was it Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter who had gift baskets on the ready for his one night stands? I get them confused.

    • AMA1977 says:

      (Alleged) gift baskets was Jeter, but he is by all accounts a gentleman and a considerate person, although he REALLY got around when he was single (and may still, I don’t follow sports gossip but I’ve never seen anything here.) A-Rod is an A-Hole and always was and always will be, forever and ever amen.

  10. JanetDR says:

    I feel like the whole point of not being married is to avoid mixing up your finances. So you can just walk out , or he can. I don’t understand how she gets in these situations.

  11. MissMarierose says:

    Jose Canseco called this back in January. He may be a little off his rocker, but he usually ends up being right.

  12. maddie says:

    “I think Madison LeCroy was just the side chick who was dumb enough to brag about it. He’s got other side chicks who are more discreet, but Jennifer still probably knows about them.”

    Was there gossip on side chicks before this LeCroy gal? I’m not aware of it.

  13. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    “ I feel like there was a bigger incident which led to all of this drama, which has apparently been happening for months.”

    Yeah, the Madison LeCroy thing happened months ago. The Southern Charm reunion show was taped in December and the cast were talking about this affair during that episode. So, Madison and A Rod had to have started up prior to that taping in December. What’s even sicker is that she was also fooling around with Jay Cutler around the same time. Chick is so thirsty for attention.

  14. Julia K says:

    Their combined families consider themselves siblings. A breakup like this will definitely hurt these children. Whatever else I think about Jlo, she seems to be a good mom. I can see her hanging on for the kids.

    • shanaynay says:

      Agreed. It’s always hard when there are children involved.

      He doesn’t seem to care too much, because he cheated on his wife. He’s a dirty dog and he ain’t never going to change. Not even for JLo
