Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez made a surprise move yesterday: The morning after multiple outlets independently reported that their relationship of four years had ended, the couple released a statement saying they were still together, though they do have some issues: “All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things,” the two said.
People, Page Six, and E! have gotten more details about what happened behind the scenes after split reports initially broke—and how much work A-Rod has to do to convince Lopez that they can salvage things longterm.
E! was told by an insider that J.Lo and A-Rod were “caught off guard” by how fast news of their alleged breakup spread. TMZ reported on Friday, after all, that they broke up that same day.
E!’s source made it clear: Rodriguez knows it’s on him to prove to Lopez things can work out between them. “Alex is convincing Jennifer to try and work things out. Jennifer is giving herself time to think about their future,” the source explained. “They have several investments together and their children are incredibly close. The idea of untangling it all seems like such a massive undertaking that she doesn’t want to exit the relationship too quickly.” And things could still very well end, the source added: “Alex is fully aware that this relationship is currently hanging by a thread.”
Page Six was told that Lopez and Rodriguez were up all night Friday talking about their future after breakup reports broke. “They are trying to work through things…but it’s unclear if that means they are staying together,” a source close to the couple told the outlet, which broke the news initially of their split.
Multiple sources told the outlet generally that “for the last two weeks they have not been together and the last few days they were not good. They’ve been having some crazy issues.”
People, meanwhile, spoke to a source close to the couple who wanted to make it clear despite some other reports Rodriguez’s Southern Charm Madison LeCroy cheating rumors caused issues in J.Lo and A-Rod’s relationship, LeCroy “had no bearing on the rough patch at all.”
Lopez and Rodriguez had talked about splitting but never made it official, the source added: “They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up. She’s working in the Dominican Republic [filming Shotgun Wedding] and he’s in Miami so it’s tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID, but they want to try to stay together.”
