Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez split comes after the superstar couple twice postponed their wedding — and after rumors surfaced that the former Yankees third baseman had been playing the field with a young reality star.
The 45-year-old A-Rod hinted at the break-up on Instagram, as he posted a shot of himself alone on a yacht in Miami, grimacing and staring at his cellphone. J.Lo, 51, meanwhile, was on location in the Caribbean Friday shooting her latest film, “Shotgun Wedding.”
The stars, who have been dating for roughly four years, announced their engagement in 2019. But they then postponed their wedding twice, blaming it on the COVID-19 pandemic. “We had to cancel the wedding … because of COVID, because of the quarantine,” Lopez said in December. “And we actually did it twice, which people don’t know.”
TROUBLE IN PARADISE
It’s unclear when the trouble in paradise for the engaged couple began, but the split comes on the heels of rumors that ALex Rodriguez had been FaceTiming with “Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy.
Sources close to A-Rod, however, shot down the rumors to The Post last month. “He doesn’t know this woman,” a source said. LeCroy, however, admitted the couple have “spoken on the phone,” but have “never met up.”
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez then put on a united front amid the scandal, heading out to dinner in Miami and attending the Super Bowl together, where J.Lo had performed at the halftime show a year earlier.
In a recent interview, Jennifer Lopez revealed that she and Alex Rodriguez saw a therapist during their time in quarantine. “I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship,” Jennifer Lopez said. But apparently it wasn’t enough to keep them together in the end.
