Alex Rodriguez’s ego had to have taken a bit of beating when just three weeks after he and Jennifer Lopez, 51, announced they were ending their four year relationship, she was photographed on a romantic getaway in Montana with former fiance Ben Affleck, 48.
Alex Rodriguez, 45, has now taken a hit on the couple, especially the handsome old flame back in J.Lo’s life after 17 years apart. A-Rod was asked about Bennifer reunion while heading into a Miami restaurant on May 11, in the first sighting of the former MLB slugger since the world learned of Ben and Jen’s romantic week-long trip.
He simply said, “Go Yankees,” Page Six reports. While that might not seem like a hard core outward diss, it definitely was some shade at major Boston Red Sox fan Ben Affleck. The Yankees and the Red Sox have one of the most storied and heated rivalries in all of Major League Baseball history.
And while Alex Rodriguez retired a Yankee after 12 seasons, his “Go Yankees” being his only reply about Ben and Jen definitely comes across as some shade at the Red Sox loving Justice League star.
The diss comes as reports have surfaced that Ben Affleck had got back in contact with his former fiancee while she was in the Dominican Republic filming her new movie Shotgun Wedding with Josh Duhamel.
At that point there had been chatter of trouble in A-Rod and J.Lo’s relationship, before Page Six reported on Mar. 12 that the two had split. Even though in a statement the following day, the pair said they were still together, but “working through some things.”
