Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have decided to call it quits.
On Friday (March 12), Page Six announced that the couple has decided to call off their two-year engagement and break up indefinitely. At the time of publishing, there has been no reason revealed for the pair's split.
Lopez and Rodriguez got engaged in March 2019 after two years of dating and the breakup announcement comes just a few days after the two-year anniversary of their engagement.
The superstar and former baseball player met at a New York Yankees game when Lopez was still with her former love, Marc Anthony, but they were reacquainted over a decade later. The pair was first confirmed to be dating in March 2017 according to People.
According to the publication, sources in Miami told Page Six that the couple broke up on Friday (March 12) saying, “He’s now in Miami getting ready for baseball season, and she’s filming her movie in the Dominican Republic.”
JLo last posted a photo with A-Rod at the end of February and before that, the last photo with him was during President Joe Biden's inauguration. A-Rod also last posted in February with the pop star. Fans noticed that the singer had not liked A-Rod's most-recent photo on Instagram.
On Wednesday (March 10) a source told ET Online the couple was still planning on getting married after the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone the wedding. At the time, the unknown source told ET, “She trusts him like no one else she has been with and is in one of the best places in her career and personal life.”
The news of the breakup comes just a few weeks after romantic rumors of Rodriguez and Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy began circulating but there is no confirmation if there is a link between the two events.
Lopez and Rodriguez both have children from other relationships. Lopez shares twins Max and Emme with Marc Anthony. Rodriguez shares two daughters Natasha and Ella with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
