Alex Rodriguez rented a house close to J.Lo & he was out with Lindsay Shookus

Alex Rodriguez has been doing everything but stand on his own head to get attention following his split from Jennifer Lopez. He’s tried being a public sad-sack. He’s tried begging for Jennifer to pay attention to him. He’s tried guilt-tripping her about the family they could have been. He’s tried being jealous. And after all that, she still cut off contact with him and she’s fully immersed in making this work with Ben Affleck. So now A-Rod has resorted to real-estate stalking and trying to, like, make Jennifer jealous. Even though she’s clearly not paying attention to him:

Alex Rodriguez has moved into a Hamptons mansion just a mile from Jennifer Lopez’s home — and immediately sparked new romance rumors by being spotted with an attractive brunette. A-Rod has rented a $5 million mansion in Bridgehampton this summer while he continues to look at property to buy in Manhattan and in the Hamptons.

Rodriguez’s summer place is just over a mile from Lopez’s $10 million spread in Water Mill, where the former couple spent last summer with their kids. The former Yankees slugger was spotted on Friday night dining with staffers from his company A-Rod Corp at Sag Harbor restaurant Le Bilboquet.

A witness said, “Alex had a long dinner on Friday with two women and his nephew Nick Silva. A very attractive brunette at his table turned some heads at the packed restaurant, with some wondering if she was Alex’s new girlfriend.”

But other sources say the brunette is Liz Cohen, a business development manager at A-Rod Corp, and they are not romantically involved. Rodriguez, 45, and his group stayed late into the night at the restaurant, which overlooks Sag Harbor Marina, leaving around 11 p.m., according to witnesses.

Would you be creeped out if your stalker-ex rented a property a mile away from your summer home? Yes, I would. The Hamptons are BIG. There are lots of enclaves and ritzy areas and tons of summer homes for rent. He just had to rent a place a mile away. And that’s not all:

Alex Rodriguez was spotted hanging out with Ben Affleck’s ex Lindsay Shookus at her birthday party on Saturday, a video obtained by Page Six reveals. In the clip, Rodriguez, 45, is seated right beside Shookus, 41, at an intimate backyard gathering in the Hamptons as Josh Beckerman, known as the “Foodie Magician,” performs a magic routine for the “Saturday Night Live” producer’s guests.

The timing of Shookus and A-Rod’s hangout sparks interest given that their respective exes Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance continues to heat up. However, we’re told the pair are longtime pals and nothing more.

A rep for Rodriguez told Page Six on Monday, “There is absolutely zero there,” adding, “They’ve been friends for 15 years.”

The video was first posted to Beckerman’s Instagram Stories with the message, “Happy bday @shookushookus!” Shookus’ birthday is June 18.

The sighting was then shared by the blind-items Instagram account @deuxmoi.

First of all, I’m convinced that A-Rod is the source for all of these Page Six updates. I think he’s calling up Cindy Adams and friendly NY Post columnists with sh-t like “say Super-Slugger A-Rod was caught hanging out with Ben Affleck’s ex!” As for that story… I get that Shookus is well-connected because of SNL. But this is too much. It’s too creepy. A-Rod hanging out with Ben’s ex? Come on.

    Simmer down Alex.
    I’m shaking my head..you can’t make this ish up!

  2. Nina says:

    Oh this summer is going to be messy and juicy with gossip

  3. girl_ninja says:

    Arod: Say I’m a loser without saying I’m a loser.

    He is so embarrassing. Ben is not thinking about Shookus. Unfortunately for Lindsay, Ben wasn’t even thinking of her when they were together.

    • Darla says:

      Right. I mean, if he was seen with Ana, that could be something…but Ana wouldn’t be caught dead with Arod. What’s his end game? A brawl in the Hamptons? Is he hoping Affleck will get so fed up he’ll see him and throw down? I don’t get it. So creepy. SO CREEPY. I don’t find it amusing when men are creepy.

      • Kate says:

        LOL he would get so trigged if it was Ana.

      • Betty says:

        you make me laugh with the brawl in the hamptons ? lol as much as i love Ben i think Alex is in better shape

      • Darla says:

        Well Betty, maybe we are gonna find out lol! I’d have to see them in person, and Arod may be a coward. I just find him so repulsive, it makes me feel like he could be a coward for some reason.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        my money is on Affleck.

        A-Rod may be an athlete, but he was a cheater and I think he loves his “pretty face” too much to get into a fist-fight. I think he’d talk a good game but he’d either try to sucker-punch his opponent or he’d run.

        and let’s not forget Affleck grew up Boston…sure, he may not have grown up in the toughest of circumstances, but he knew plenty of tough characters and I’m sure he knows how to fight.

    • Bryn says:

      I doubt Ben even remembers dating Lindsay. He was so messy during that time.

    • Jayna says:

      LOL But probably true.

  4. Susan says:

    Honestly, if i didn’t know better (aka JLo and her love of being in love), I’d think all these people are conspiring together to give us the craziest summer of gossip in years. Which I appreciate, because holy cats, who would have predicted this??

    • Jennifer says:

      Same. I love it. It’s a better source of entertainment than anything they do professionally.

  5. Darla says:

    I don’t know why but he has always given me the major creeps. Really major. I just cannot stand him.

    • Esmom says:

      Same. I remember being sort of horrified when JLo got together with him.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      because he’s a cheater both on and off the field.

      A-Rod is all about A-Rod, all day, every day. his ego is his first priority.

      • Frida_K says:

        Which is why this is a little alarming. I don’t see this level of narcissist quietly moving on with his life while JLo goes along with hers.

        I would not be surprised if he drags stuff out the way Sofia Vergara’s heinous ex has done, for instance.

        It’s all kind of fun and games now, but I think his antics are going to become very tiresome rather quickly. We’ll see, but that’s my thought at this moment. (And yet…she does goad him, so ….)

        What a mess.

        Huh.

  6. NTheMiddle says:

    This is so gross and controlling. Ewww…. Ben Affleck is looking like a prince…. Going to go shower now.

    • Heylee says:

      This! Remember when he was with Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson and they both got augmented during their relationships with him? Now this, the constant side chicks, the picture of his head on a centaur body… sounds very much like a narcissist. I’m ill.

      • Eleonor says:

        This is why he is behaving like this: JLO moved on before him, she didn’t cry, she didn’t try to go back with him (on another note: they never made it down the isle, kudos to her for dodging a bullet) she went back to Ben Affleck the gossip world is thrilled and no one cares about A-Rod. He was humiliated by a woman, and this must BURN af.

  7. dea says:

    “Even though she’s clearly not paying attention to him” oh, c’mon! Let’s not act like the sudden Bennifer revival isn’t also a way for her to publicly get back at him after he cheated on her left and right. The perfect timing of the rollout is obvious, like people can’t be that naive.

    ARod is a sleezebag, sure, but we been knew that. Also as someone who believes Bennifer 2.0 is a PR stunt, I’m all for it getting as messy as possible lol so if ARod wants to be a petty bitch, go ahead. My popcorn’s ready.

    • Jayna says:

      LOL I know. All of those photos and some of the leaked stories were exactly to get back at him. And the worst was posting that photo or video, or whatever it was, of Emme crying. She used her own little girl to try to make A-Rod feel guilty about what he had done to their blended family, but used her little girl publically.

      There are all a hot mess in the thirst department.

  8. Traci says:

    He’s a hot mess

  9. Eleonor says:

    Renting a house near an ex ?
    This kind of behaviour can only lead to a restraining order!

  10. Merricat says:

    Really, who finds that kind of desperation attractive?

  11. DS9 says:

    I am dyyyyying that A-Rod is so tore up.

    Poor wittle lamb lololol

  12. EnormousCoat says:

    Watch out, Gen Z. This is gonna be a lit summer for all the Gen Xers who got robbed of their time in the sun.

  13. Golly Gee says:

    A-Rod Corp sounds like the name of a super villain’s evil empire from say, Batman‘s world.
    Cliffhanger: Will Batman Ben save his fair damsel from the villain’s clutches, after he plays “just one more hand“ of poker?

  14. Izzy says:

    Creepy, and kind of pathetic.

  15. Serena says:

    Not only it’s creepy af but he comes up as a pathetic and childish jealous loser ex. Ew.

  16. Tanguerita says:

    It kills me how primitive these people are. It’s offensive.

  17. Lena says:

    “Even though she’s clearly not paying attention to him” Of course she is! I think his behavior is hilarious, but that’s how to enjoy this: All.three.are.clowns. All three. None of them have really evolved since high school.

  18. Barbie1 says:

    Obsessed stalker! Jennifer should have never gone near him in the first place

  19. Chaine says:

    Haha he is really scraping the bottom of the barrel of Ben’s exes in his desperation. And somehow he’s starting to look about 60 years old, hard to recall him being a hot young athlete.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      eh, that’s kind of harsh. Shookus is no JLo but she IS an accomplished woman, having been a producer on SNL for a while. she had a life independent from Ben.

      bottom of the barrel of Ben’s exes would be that nanny who wore all of Brady’s rings on the private jet to Vegas and bought a “drop top Lexi” with her payoff from Ben.

  20. lunchcoma says:

    Can’t even get one of his own exes to hang out with him. Has to find one of Ben’s.

    Everyone involved in this is embarrassing, but at least Jen and Ben look like they’re having fun. Alex is just being pathetic.

  21. Carolnr says:

    Lindsay Shookus is probably the only tv producer on a show that has dated or has been spotted with some of the more famous Hollywood men ( Noth, Affleck, Hamm) I am not saying she is not good – (9 Nominations/5 Emmys for her work) but gee!! Hollywood is one big buffet & everyone seems to have sampled off eveyone’s plate…
    Alex’s reps were very quick to shoot down dating humors, as were Jon Hamm’s.
    JL. Is not going back to Rodriguez….he publicly humiliated her. If anything happens with “Bennifer”, she will probably seek comfort with the father of her children, Mark Anthony, until she finds someone else….

  22. CityGirl says:

    And just think all he ever had to do was simply not cheat 🤔

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Alex is demonstrating how controlling he truly is. Most cheaters are shocked when they get dumped, and usually have a sense of indignation/rage. Everyone thinks J-Lo made the right decision, except A-Rod. J-Lo rarely ever looked happy with A-Rod., and now I know why. I think he enjoyed humiliating her. Ben is still a better choice, and I hope they stay together.

      • Carolnr says:

        I think in the beginning JL looked very happy with AR. I thought they made a nice looking couple! They seem to have had alot of fun with their blended families. I looked at AR IG page for the first time.There is a video of them, along with JL’s mom playing ball at her home in the Hampton’s .They look like they are having a good time & there are alot of other photos of just the 2 of them & they both look very relaxed & content together. It is in later photos that JL doesn’t look happy, particularly the one taken of them in the Dominican Republic when she was filming. ( And we all know now that BA was emailing/ pursuing her since Feb.)
        Sadly, AR has always been a cheater & couldn’t even change for JL….

      • Theo says:

        Ben is another cheater. He cheated on her too.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Or just cheat less and less obviously. I think Jennifer is willing to put up with quite a bit as long as she’s not publicly humiliated.

  23. Liz version 700 says:

    Mess. He is a messy mess whew

  24. Rice says:

    Why do men like A-Hole, I mean A-Rod, have to be so creepy and psychologically abusive?

  25. Laugh or Cry says:

    Wow he really is in the sunken place.

  26. Janie says:

    A-Rod is cringe-worthy his ego can’t handle she moved on and didn’t take him back. Living that close is a major red flag. I’m sure on a side note Ben loves that A-Rod is jealous of him that’s better than a lawn card out of somebody.

  27. Jayna says:

    Do you think maybe he’s been trying to contact Ana for a date to piss Ben off and to be really shady publicly? Ben couldn’t care less that he’s at Lindsay’s birthday party looking bored. As thirsty as A-Rod is being, I wouldn’t put it past him trying to be in the same place as Jennifer Garner is for a photo-op.

  28. Purplehazeforever says:

    This is stalker behavior. Red flags.

  29. Justjj says:

    He’s always given me the major creeps, tbh.

  30. ... says:

    Team JLO/Bennifer on this. I don’t think they’re the nicest people, but when compared to Alex Rodriguez they’re saints. As Señora Baldwin would say he’s muy mucho malo!
