J-Rod ends their relationship
American singer, actor, and dancer Jennifer Lopez (or jlo) and American former professional baseball shortstop Alex Rodriguez have called off their engagement after 2 years and parted their ways, as reported by US media. The professional baseball shortstop proposed the artist in 2019 after the couple started dating in early 2017.
The couple was given the nickname, J-Rod, three years ago after they landed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. J-Rod, have been twice forced to postpone their destination wedding plans due to COVID-19 concerns but unfortunately, the couple split up after 4 years of being in a relationship. Jennifer, 51 and Alex, 45 shared their picture together in the Dominican Republic last month and since then, we haven’t seen the couple together.
The pair, however, have not yet confirmed their break-up, reported by the New York Post’s Page Six and TMZ. Jennifer Lopez was filming in the Dominican Republic when she shared a post on her social media which read, “Find a good reason to laugh today 😂🤣 Sending everyone love ❤️ #TBT🎥: @n_jlover”
Talking of Alex, he shared a picture of himself aboard a boat in Florida with a caption, “Don’t mind me, just taking a sail-fie ⛵️
What are your plans for the weekend?”
The outlet quoted a source as saying, “Jennifer felt like moving forward to marriage wasn’t right. Recently Alex’s character has been called into question and that didn’t sit right with Jennifer”. “The couple will always have respect for each other.”
The singer/actor/dancer Lopez has been working on her new movie that is, Shotgun Wedding, in the Dominican Republic and she hasn’t share any picture of A-Rod on social media pages since February 27, when she marked the country’s Independence Day in honour of her fiance’s heritage with sweet snaps of the couple embracing.
Since then, the couple has been sharing their solo pictures on Social Media and hearing about the J-Rod’s break up today, fans are numb and dumbstruck. However, the spilt had apparently been in the works for a while. “This has been a long time coming”, a source told People magazine.
“They are tied in their business worlds so it’s not a cut and dry break up. It’s taken a while for them to even think about untangling it all.”
