Well, everyone was right! Literally everyone in the comments and on social media said that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez would officially break up within a month, and that’s exactly what happened. On March 12th, Page Six and People Magazine both confirmed that Alex Rodriguez and J.Lo had broken up. By the next morning, they were back together and working through their issues. Alex came to visit her in the Dominian Republic and he seemed especially eager to make things right, probably because he had been cheating on her constantly and sliding into random reality stars’ DMs. Jennifer stayed and I guess they figured out all of their joint business interests and all of that. So now almost one month later exactly, they’re over.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are officially going their separate ways. The performing sensation and the former baseball slugger, who have been a couple since 2017, have called off their two-year engagement and will focus on remaining friends. The two revealed the news in an exclusive joint statement to TODAY.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
Reports first circulated in March that they had called off their engagement, but multiple sources told TODAY at the time that the two “never officially broke up” and were still together.
“They hit a rough patch that made them think about what they should do,” the sources added, noting that it was tough for the couple to see each other amid COVID-19 restrictions while Lopez, 51, was working in the Dominican Republic and Rodriguez, 45, was in Miami.
It became pretty clear that Alex was the one doing the most to get Jennifer to “forgive” him and she was… not really feeling it. I mean, she loves a grand gesture, and I think she loves being part of a power couple. But I respect that at this point in her life, she’s prepared to blow up some business deals and end an engagement because she isn’t being treated with respect. It must f–king suck to be hot and amazing like Jennifer and dudes still cheat on you. Alex is so gross. Oh well, now he can go back home and cry to his centaur painting.
