Jennifer Lopez finally unfollowed A-Rod on Instagram & deleted a bunch of photos

31st Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

The last time we checked in on Alex Rodriguez, he showed up in the South of France on a yacht at the same time Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were on their vacation for her birthday. A-Rod was coming across as an international stalker, trailing behind Bennifer in the Hamptons, Miami and then Europe. This was months after Jennifer had apparently cut him off completely, refusing to take his calls or communicate with him at all. And now the final blow: she’s unfollowed him on Instagram and cleaned up her social media, deleting photos of the two of them.

Jennifer Lopez has further cemented her rekindled relationship with Ben Affleck by deleting every trace of most recent ex, Alex Rodriguez, from her Instagram.

Followers took note Saturday that the Bronx-born entertainer’s social media feed had been slightly revamped, with photos of ex-fiancé A-Rod all having been removed from her account.

This includes shots of the exes together during President Joe Biden’s inauguration, where J. Lo performed “This Land Is Your Land” and “America the Beautiful.” Photos and clips of the star alone during the event, however, remain.

The “Hustlers” star, 52, also unfollowed the former Yankee, 46, on Instagram.

It’s kind of amazing that it took this long for her to do that, but I understand that she wanted to keep the thin veneer of “we’re still friendly-ish” in public. It makes me wonder if something else changed, or if A-Rod did something privately which pissed her off to no end. It could also be that this delay was a bigger flex, like “oh, I forgot those photos were even on my feed, I forgot I was even following your dumb ass.”

Anyway, I’m dying for Jen to post more Bennifer photos. Think of all of the cute photos they’re NOT posting of each other.

    It needed to happen, the holiday photos that were taken in the same places left a real creepy vibe. Love the photos you chose.. she looks happier with Ben.

  2. Seraphina says:

    I think this is a signal that Bennifer 2.0 is here for real! And step four in the process of How to Successfully Show in Celebrity Land A Relationship is over.

    As always I feel bad for the kids. Their kids adored each other and referred to each other as siblings. Did they cut the kids out to? Do the kids talk to each other still seperate from j.lo and a.rod? I hope so.

    • ME says:

      I doubt it. I mean there must be some strong feelings A-Rod’s daughters have towards J.Lo. It’s like oh ok you’re engaged to my dad today but tomorrow you’re dating Ben Affleck. Like that’s gotta do something to a child’s mind. She just up and left and is no longer in their lives after years of being so close. Perhaps they blame their dad for the break-up and are mad at him? Or maybe they really don’t give a damn. Who knows.

      • myjobistoprincess says:

        you’re right, engaged one day and out with Ben Affleck the next day. How would she even try to reach out nd pursue anything, right?
        But also, her kids might be too young to understand, be objective and not pick sides: “Your dad tried to cheat on my mom with Madison Lecroy sexting her?”
        That is so embarrassing or both sides. If all the kids were old teens/young twenty something – they’d could possibly say – “your problem not mine, we’re keeping touch, which is not the case.

    • Al says:

      She left birthday tributes to his kids on her grid, and group shots of all the kids. There are still some Alex photos too but she deleted anything where he is in the first photo. After they broke up, she left a message for his daughter under ARod’s birthday post for her.

      ARod cheated on her, he’s the one that brought this hurt on his kids and JLo’s but you’re right that they might not see that.

    • lucy2 says:

      I feel for them too, they seemed to spend a lot of time together and were a blended family for quite a while.
      ARod is to blame for that breakup, and JLo is to blame for immediately rushing into another super serious relationship (to another guy who has kids).

  4. LillyfromLillooet says:

    How to comprehend his blowing up a great relationship and a great blended family with a bunch of side pieces. I’m of the camp that believes ARod liked and supported Jen’s high profile lifestyle more than Ben ever will. And wow, he was with her when she strode on the world stage to sing at the POTUS inauguration. Can you imagine bringing your fiancé to that, where ARod shook hands with the incoming President and the entire free world was watching, and he’s chatting up strangers on Insta?!!

    For all of you Benifer stans, my joy at your having your moment is commingled with my competitive need to say, you heard is here first: Ben just doesn’t do long-term connection. And Ben is going to get real sick of the high stepping pap strolls etc. T minus whenever until his camp starts talking about how Ben is basic, Ben wants to be lower profile, Ben just wants to enjoy life without being part of a high power entourage staging pap shots at 3,000 mile intervals every few days.

    Look: I’m glad they are happy for now. And Jenny from the block deserves much better than to keep strangely recreating attachment dramas, I don’t think she consciously wants to keep finding the guy who can’t.

      The upcoming movie he’s got with Matt Damon is going to be the bellwether. You had better believe there are analysts and crisis managers and PRs and executives weighing this situation. And it’s all going to depend on the movie’s audience. If they have run the numbers and white, ‘intellectual’ Gen x is the big money- Ben’s contemporaries, Againnifer is toast. Bennifer went down during a prosperous and hopeful time for that generation. Being 30-35 and just getting started with a prosperous life only to have the 2008 crash hobbled many of them while 17 years later, Againnifer is rolling in conspicuous consumption. Their relationship tanked the first time bc Gen X thought their relationship was cringeworthy. It seems like JLo has pulled back a bit. 17 years ago, Ben’s birthday would have been a week-long extravaganza orchestrated by JLo and if she had pulled a similar stunt this weekend, the coverage around it would have accelerated the ‘Ben just wants a quiet, humble, intellectual life’ bit. But that’s totally coming.

      • eliza james says:

        This is insightful commentary. And “Againiffer” is pure gold!

      • LillyfromLillooet says:

        LOVE THIS especially as a GenXer whose prosperity was getting up on wobbly legs in 2008 only to be plunged back into 1987 penury.

  5. Amy Bee says:

    I think it would be great if JLo posted a photo of her and Ben from 17 years ago.

  6. Christina says:

    That cover pic of JLo with the tag line is hilarious!!!

  7. Snappyfish says:

    What is she, 14? I feel bad for her kids who seemed close to A-Rod’s kids. I completely understand moving on albeit at breakneck speed seems ill advised. She draped her relationship w/A-Rod in front of every camera she could find. She might consider being a better role model for her children w/regards to relationships. The idea that deleting a photos makes it all go away is rather childish

    Also if she is ‘happy’ w/Ben it makes no sense for the “revenge purge” which is what the mass deleting looks like

    • Jodi says:

      I don’t understand the concept of a “revenge purge”. I often archive photos from my previous relationship after a breakup and it has nothing to do with revenge. it does have everything to do with moving the eff on and cutting the ties. some might even call that having boundaries which is a perfectly healthy thing to do.

  8. Stelly says:

    I think this is funny because A-Rod’s a massive douche and she’s good to be rid of him…but I can’t say I’m on the Bennifer train either. Dude’s a cheater and a creep. Let’s not forget how he harassed and groped Hilarie Burton on camera. J-Lo deserves better.
