Alex Rodriguez is ‘acting so needy’ that Jennifer Lopez cut off contact with him

Alex Rodriguez posted this Instagram a few days ago, showing his dinner with his two daughters. A lot of people noted that there seemed to be extra place settings out, and that Alex was giving some kind of visual signal that he was still open and hopeful that Jennifer Lopez would come back and that they could be some kind of happy blended family again. This has been Alex’s vibe since the J-Rod breakup – sad sack, desperado, trying to whine and manipulate his way back into Jennifer’s life. Alex is also said to be pretty worked up about how quickly Jennifer has moved on with Ben Affleck. Well, funny story. According to People Magazine – an outlet with what seems like a direct line to Jen’s manager Benny Medina – Jennifer has completely cut off contact with Alex.

“Bennifer” fans were likely shocked to see photos of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez spending time together over the past few weeks after her engagement to Alex Rodriguez ended in March. And a source tells PEOPLE that Rodriguez, 45, “was pretty surprised,” himself when he heard about Affleck, who was seen at Lopez’s home in Los Angeles in late April over a week before the actor, 48, and the singer, 51, went away together for a days-long trip to Montana.

“Alex is not thrilled,” the source says of how things have recently unfolded after his split from ex-fiancée Lopez, noting that former New York Yankee Rodriguez had hoped things between the pair would remain amicable.

“It definitely hurt his ego,” the source adds of Rodriguez’s reaction to Affleck and Lopez spending time together 17 years after the pair broke off their own engagement in 2004.

“[Alex] was under the impression that he and Jennifer would go on as friends, but he is acting so needy that Jennifer cut him off,” the source says of Rodriguez, who recently told photographers “Go Yankees” when asked about Lopez and Affleck, who is a longtime Boston Red Sox fan.

“Jennifer seems very happy. She tried for a long time to get her relationship with Alex to work. She feels good that she decided to break it off. She just doesn’t trust him and didn’t want to waste any more time,” the source concludes.

“He is acting so needy that Jennifer cut him off…” I mean, I love this? I love this dumb melodrama and I want to eat it with a spoon. I say that understanding and acknowledging that Ben Affleck is a cheater and a mess as well, and I also know that the Bennifer Revival will end in tears and leaks to People Magazine. But seeing A-Rod get some comeuppance from Jennifer is making me so happy. And the fact that she’s now ignoring him and has fully cut off contact with him? That’s priceless.

    Desperation is not attractive, Alex. She is just not into you, especially not when America’s Bachelor is free and looking her way.

    • Kimberly says:

      My pov is that Jennifer is the one that always comes across as desperate. She can NEVER be alone and always NEEDS to be seen as getting chased after. While dude may have cheated, Ben isn’t a prize either? Who wants a middle aged man with hardcore addiction issues? No way is he America’s Bachelor…

      • lis says:

        So she doesn’t trust the guy who recently repeatedly cheated but she does trust the guy who not as recently repeatedly cheated? So romantic…

  2. Midge says:

    A narcissist “hoovering”

  3. Nicole says:

    Take aways from that Instagram shot. Grilled shrimp, green salad, asparagus, and brown rice. That can be very tasty, but I’m gonna say how boring. I guess this is how we eat if we wanna keep it tight.

    • jbones says:

      His girls look thrilled- truly. Like, how many shots did it take to hit this? The stiff outstretched hand, the WTF face on the receiving end of that meat skewer…the other child checked out. Total facade, totally sad.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      There also appears to be beef and chicken kabobs on the table. It’s a lot of food for 3 people.

      • AMA1977 says:

        That’s enough food for 8-10 people IMO. There is another bowl of rice on the side closest to him and some kind of pasta or other side as well, in addition to the shrimp and kebobs and whatever is next to the asparagus serving dish.

        His girls look like teenagers to me (mom of a 13 year old who has all of a sudden gone FULL teenager, lol!) but I don’t let mine have his phone at the table. A-Rod looks like 1000% dorky dad.

        Kaiser, please always use that pic where he’s kissing J-Lo’s shoulder and she looks like she’s internally screaming and about to cut him. The look on her face says it all.

      • jbones says:

        Caption this:

        “GAWD, DAD!! I’ve been a vegetarian since I was, like, 11….UGH.”

  4. Marla Singer says:

    Maybe you shouldn’t have cheated on her?! Screw off dude

  5. Lady jane says:

    I feel for their children though. It seems like they became quite close so to lose comtact with each other will be hard for them.

  6. minx says:

    This is one of the most fun bonuses—a pouty ARod.

  7. JEM says:

    His daughters look bored as hell in that picture.

  8. karelli says:

    let me rewrite that: narcissictic douche can’t stand the fact that he is not the center of attention anymore, so he’s harrassing his ex in an atempt to have the last word, and be the “winner”.

  9. JennyJazzhands says:

    I think the person that appears most desperate is the one giving tabloids daily updates. But, you know, different strokes.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Yes. I question what is the point of leaking this information? And the only reason I can think of is to show how desirable J Lo is by pointing out how desperate A-Rod is to get her back.
      So now that she has cut him off, is he using Instagram to publicly shine his beacon of desperation in the hopes that she will see it and respond?

  10. CityGirl says:

    Unfortunately he reminds me of more than one ex. Why can’t some men ever learn either do not cheat or do not Fake being in a committed relationship? Especially when it comes to intermingling your children! All that being said, I can’t lie I don’t mind watching a serial cheater get his ego crushed all over the internet 😝

  11. TheOriginalMia says:

    Cheated on her repeatedly with random IG girls. I’m not even her biggest fan, but I hope she continues to flaunt her single sex life in your face, ARod. I do feel badly for the kids, but hopefully JLo isn’t restricting her kids from communicating with his.

  12. elle says:

    Another gossip site said those place settings were clearly not for Shame, Grace and Dignity, which made me chortle with glee.

    This is so staged, it’s making me put on a tinfoil hat – like part of their split agreement required him to act like he misses her. I mean, he clearly gave about zero f*cks about their relationship before.

  13. Stelly says:

    LOL! His poor daughters look like they want no part of this…

  14. emu says:

    Sometimes you need a break before being friends. Love that whatever is happening behind the scenes, ARod is getting dragged in public. He totally deserves it

  15. Jules says:

    Again: I cannot believe these “adults” have children. Grow the F up!

    Sauce for the gander numb nuts
