A month after declaring she was trying to repair their relationship, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announced that this time it’s really over.
The 51-year-old singer and actress and 45-year-old former baseball player confirmed they broke up in a statement on the Today show. With the breakup, she cancels the official engagement: he had asked her for her hand in 2019.
“ We have realized that we are better as friends and we look forward to staying as such – they let us know – We will continue to work together and support each other, in the businesses and projects we share. We wish each other and their children the best. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to make is thanks to anyone who has sent kind and supportive words.”
Last March, Jennifer Lopez, and Alex Rodriguez had been featured in the gossip pages when the usual well-informed American magazines had begun to speculate that they had broken up.
Those directly concerned had denied rumors about the breakup while admitting that they were ” working on some things“ in their report at the time.
JLo and ARod had become a couple in 2017. By March 2019, the wedding proposal had arrived against the romantic backdrop of a vacation in the Bahamas.
They were living together, with the twins of artist Emme and Maximilian,13, and the sportsman’s daughters, Ella,12, and Natasha,16.
