J.Lo is ‘done’ with A-Rod, she’s trying to free herself from their businesses

Alex Rodriguez has not been right since Jennifer Lopez dumped him in early spring. Honestly, he f–ked around and found out. He cheated on J.Lo and he wasn’t discreet about it and he embarrassed her publicly. Ben Affleck writing her a love letter while she was still very much engaged to Alex though? That will always be the most brilliant moment of serendipity. She dumped A-Rod and got back with Ben. A-Rod has spent months stalking her, renting yachts and beach houses to be close to her and trailing behind her even when she’s on vacation.

J.Lo has been done with A-Rod for a while. They tried the “we’re still friends” thing for a few weeks after their breakup but Alex contacted her too much and she cut him off. The day before Ben’s birthday, J.Lo and her team wiped Alex’s presence from her social media, and she finally unfollowed him. The only thing left: J.Lo and A-Rod still had some business ventures together. And now she’s looking to get out of that sh-t too.

Cutting the cord. Jennifer Lopez is ready to sever all ties with her ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez as her romance with Ben Affleck heats up, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“Jennifer is done dealing with Alex,” the insider says of the Hustlers star, 52. “She’s washing her hands of him romantically and also as a business partner. Her management team and her lawyers will be talking to his [team] to tie up any loose ends.”

The “Jenny From the Block” songstress and former MLB player, 46, called off their engagement in April, telling Today in a joint statement that they are “better as friends.” At the time, however, they noted that they would maintain any business arrangements they already had in progress.

“She will have to sell her side of the company or buy him out,” the insider explains. “She doesn’t care about how it goes down, just that she is free of the ties to him. She knows it’s [only] fair to Ben.”

While I don’t doubt that she’s doing it partially “for Ben,” I also believe Jen is just sick of A-Rod’s gross stalker energy. She has been completely done with him for months now. Ben knows that. Alex knows that too. So I’m glad she’s got her team negotiating her Jexit from the J-Rod businesses.

    I enjoy seeing a powerful woman drop a skeeze like A-Rod and parting business ways is another way to drop it and show how fierce she is. But I wish Ben was not by her side for this. She would have seemed so much stronger dropping A-Rod alone and then hooking up with Ben.

  2. Merricat says:

    It’s weird that she has to practically scrape him off, like gum on her shoe. Take the loss, ARod. Move on.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ARoid has always been a sore loser, on and off the field. a cheater, too (both on and off the field).

  3. Joanna says:

    I’m sure ARod deserved to be dumped but I wish her rebound was not Ben. She can do so much better.

    • DuchessL says:

      I wish she didnt have a rebound – she would have been so much more fierce, but wasnt that 2000% predictable for love dependant jlo. That last line of dropping it all to be fair to Ben, is the thing that ruins it all for me. She does things for these men. I cannot.

      • Jayna says:

        If Ben had not come along, she and A-Rod would still be dragging this out. All the dirt was out there for everyone, and yet there she was taking a photo with him when he flew out to see her. I still say if she and Ben implode, she will rush right back to A-Rod, because he will be there waiting and convenient. Ben knows that, and Ben loves the competition, winning his women from someone else. Remember all the love-bombing he did in emails to Jennifer Garner when she was with her co-star?
        Then, after he got her, he would show up on set, which, of course, made her ex-boyfriend/still co-star, Michael, uncomfortable.

    Look, Ben Affleck, for all his faults, isn’t the type to get into huge joint business ventures with his girlfriends. J-Lo is better off with someone like that. A-Rod, imo, used J-Lo for money and connections. Didn’t they talk about buying a sports franchise together? That’s all A-Rod wanted. The stalking behavior right now isn’t because he misses her. It’s cause he misses the lifestyle and possibilities she opened up for him.

    • Jayna says:

      I agree that he loved the lifestyle with a huge star like J-Lo. And, yes, they were becoming a brand together and separate as she exposed him to other ways to brand himself. But A-Rod is worth $350 million on his own. His fortune and fame brings him plenty of opportunities. He bought the sports franchise with a different partner.

      Jennifer wasn’t used. She wanted to go into business with him, etc. It’s messy because now she has to extricate herself. But she’s a savvy businesswoman and all about branding. No one uses her that way. It’s reciprocal. She loved being a power couple with A-Rod (after lowly boy-toy Caspar) and all that that entailed. She loved having someone as rich as her (almost) and interested in these things.

      • Lala11_7 says:

        True A-Rod has fame…but NOT the level that J-Lo has & because they were together when she was having her Renaissance with “Hustlers” and her Oscar run…THAT level of exposure was INSANE…and A-Rod hadn’t been in the spotlight like that since his heyday and even THAT was tinted due to steroids…A-Rod got addicted to that again… obviously cause he keeps her name in his mouth…the fact that his ego is SO huge…that he can’t see how pathetic this strategy is…is HILARIOUS…and scary 😳 too!

    Jen and Ben are both users ; this is lust, not love. When the publicity high wears off they will both decide they are better as “friends”. Not to worry! Jlo will keep us in gossip heaven with her next conquest . She is a PR queen and knows how to market herself. She is in great shape and a man magnet and she knows it.

  6. Ana Maria says:

    her expression on the 2nd picture speaks volumes

  7. Jules says:

    This all reeks of high school drama, so petty.

  8. aquarius64 says:

    The J-Lo/A-Rod/Bennifer2.0 is a hot steaming mess.

  9. Amy Too says:

    There’s something about this statement that bugs me a little bit:

    ‘“She will have to sell her side of the company or buy him out,” the insider explains. “She doesn’t care about how it goes down, just that she is free of the ties to him.’

    It’s not about JLo specifically, more about the uber wealthy in general. This idea that she doesn’t really care either way about the businesses they started, she doesn’t care if she ends up with them or if he ends up with them, they were just one of many money making ventures for her and it will be easy (financially, legally, emotionally, in all ways really) for her to dissolve the partnerships in whichever way is easiest right now. I’m thinking more about people for whom their business, their brand or their little shoppe, is everything to them: it’s their main source of income, it’s a large part of their identity, they spend so much of their life and time, money and energy there, they identify with it and have an emotional connection to it. It would be life-changing and sad for them to just sell their half of it, or it would be a huge new commitment of time and money to buy their partner out. But for the uber wealthy, it’s just a thing that other people run in their name, one of many ways that they make money, and they don’t even really have to think about what would affect them more: selling their half and leaving the business or buying out the other half and being the sole person responsible for the business. The rich are different. They can leave (or gain “sole custody” of) multi-million dollar money making ventures when they break up with someone and it doesn’t really affect them in any significant way.

  10. Angie says:

    A_Rod should really hook up with Mariah Carey – these two would be perfect for each other! Her nagging would be music to his ears!! They both make me nauseous…

    • Christine says:

      Now that you’ve said it, I need it to happen. You are right, they are exactly perfect for each other’s public relations dreams.

  11. Chrissy says:

    I mean, everyone knows that Ben is bullshit right? A PR scheme. Right?

  12. Sarah I says:

    I just don’t understand why, if this relationship or association meant so much to ARod, he didn’t take the steps to keep it. If it meant so much to him professionally and/or personally, why did he throw it away by cheating? Could he have been so stupid and unperceptive as to really think JLo is some little girl that is hanging around putting up with stuff? No, she knows how to leave.

    • Jaded says:

      I think it’s all ego-driven. He’s always cheated, it feeds the bottomless pit of his ego to think that he can basically snap his fingers and have a legion of groupies at his beck and call, even if he’s in a relationship with a gorgeous, powerful and talented woman. He’s the type that alternates between worshiping a woman, then trying to put her down because he’s such a toxic alpha male.

    The topper photo is the very FIRST photo which I’ve ever seen in which Jennifer looks her age (or as close to it as she will ever get). I appreciate the pic not to put her down, but to bring back reality for us, the non-famous. ALL people will age. Some of us just don’t have the employees, doctors or filters to look forever 25.

  15. Well damn says:

    Fuck it, I’m rooting for her and for Bennifer 3.0. A-Rod is a sleaze and I cannot stand him.

  16. XoXo says:

    About a month again, there is a blind item on blindgossip that speculated that ARod might have given her clap, hence she was now doing the cleansing.
