Alex Rodriguez flew back to the Dominican Republic to spend more time with Jennifer Lopez this past weekend. He spent the weekend before with J.Lo too, and she’s in the Dominican Republic to film her latest movie. From the sound of Jennifer’s publicist’s comments to People Magazine last week, it does seem like Jennifer is okay with “staying” with Alex for the time being. For the sake of their kids and their business deals. But it’s clear that Alex has f–ked up and that their relationship has been rocky for months now.
Alex Rodriguez flew back to the Dominican Republic — where his fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, is filming a new movie — to continue to work on the couple’s strained relationship, Page Six has learned.
“They’re doing what they said they’re going to do,” a source told us Monday. “You have to be together to do that.”
We hear that A-Rod has trips scheduled to the D.R. to visit J.Lo every 10 days or so — and this weekend’s visit was one of his planned trips.
“Clearly they’re putting the work in,” the source added.
Earlier this month, Page Six learned the pair had broken off their engagement after reports of Rodriguez’s inappropriate relationship with “Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy circulated online. However, less than 24 hours later, the couple stayed up all night working through their issues and seemed to have a change of heart. Since the brief split, Rodriguez, 45, has flown twice to the Dominican Republic, where Lopez, 51, is filming “Shotgun Wedding” alongside her heartthrob co-star Lenny Kravitz.
The rekindled lovers have packed on the PDA during their stay in the Caribbean, often being photographed kissing while meeting with their two assistants. A source told us that aside from Rodriguez spending time with Lopez, the sports broadcaster is also “playing golf and chilling.”
A-Rod shared photos of him on the course with his nephew Nick Silva, and captioned the slideshow using the hashtag “blessed.” We’re told Lopez has been “shooting around the clock” in the meantime.
Some of you have suggested that despite the “reunited and it feels so good” PR, this is actually the death rattle of J-Rod’s relationship. Will they still be together one month after Jennifer wraps Shotgun Wedding? I have my doubts. I think they’re in a holding pattern at the moment because Jennifer doesn’t have time to figure out how to split up with him. Anyway, whenever the breakup does happen, I’m sure Jennifer won’t have to wear it. She’s teflon in that way. Alex will get the blame (as he should, honestly). Also: J.Lo and Lenny Kravitz?!?! OMG.
