What's Really Going On With Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez Today?

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's relationship seemed to be a match made in heaven. The singer turned actress and former professional baseball player looked to be the perfect couple when they began dating in March 2017 (via Us Weekly). During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Lopez revealed that she ran into Rodriguez while grabbing lunch and approached him. That meeting led to their first date and a long relationship. The duo both had children from previous relationships and blended their family to become one big unit.

In 2018, Lopez let the world know exactly how much she loved Rodriguez when she spoke about him while accepting an MTV Video Music Award. "Alex. You're like my twin soul. We're like mirror images of each other. You know, my life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day, the sky is not the limit," she said. The couple finally got engaged in March 2019 when Rodriguez popped the question during a romantic vacation. However, they were forced to postpone their wedding plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In January 2021 things began to take a turn when Rodriguez was accused of cheating on Lopez with "Southern Charm" star Madison LeCroy. By March, the couple was said to be on the rocks as they admitted they were working through some issues. Earlier this month, they officially announced their split, but where do they stand today?

Although Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have called off their engagement, they remain in each other's lives. They are very close to each other's children and also share business ventures together. This means that they're forced to stay in communication despite the end of their relationship. The couple reportedly met up for dinner just one week after their split to discuss how they would move forward with their lives. "Jennifer and Alex are figuring out how to be exes and still remain friends," a source told People. "Jennifer has been such a big part of Alex's daughters' lives, and she will continue to be a big part. She loves his girls. Their split is trickier because of the kids," the informant added.

Meanwhile, Lopez is said to be ready to move on from the romance and get a fresh start. "She is very strong and will continue to follow her heart," the insider stated. However, Rodriguez is reportedly not as keen to move on. "Alex seems to have a harder time letting go. He still wants to get back together with Jennifer. But to her, their relationship is over," the source revealed. Meanwhile, Lopez only recently returned home from filming a new movie in the Dominican Republic, and she's reportedly ready to take some time off and recharge following her grueling filming schedule and emotional breakup.
