After being spotted out to dinner last week, according to news reports, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are supposedly sorting out what their future looks like as friends amid their split. Let’s get into it.
Earlier this month, J Lo and A-Rod revealed that they officially called off their engagement after months of rumors about their relationship status.
In a joint statement, the two revealed that they realized they are “better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” and they proved that to be true last week. According to Page Six, the exes were spotted out to dinner at the exact location where they had their very first date. “Very interesting”‘
But as much as it seemed like this dinner date could mean these two could possibly be back on, now new sources have an explanation for that meet-up and what J Lo and A-Rod hope for their future.
A source close to J Lo spoke to People Magazine and revealed that their dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air was to “talk business and discuss how to move forward in a friendly way.” The insider added that “Jennifer and Alex are figuring out how to be exes and still remain friends.”
And while J Lo and A-Rod hadn’t officially tied the knot, they still have a lot to figure out when it comes to their intertwined lives, joint business ventures, and shared properties in L.A., New York, and Miami. But according to the source, their number one priority is making sure their kids are ok.
J Lo has 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, while Alex has two daughters, 13-year-old Ella and 16-year-old Natasha. Since their relationship started back in 2017, they have had one big blended family. The insider said that J Lo and A-Rod “want to be as considerate of the kids as possible.”
Even amid their split, J Lo shared a post for Alex’s daughter Ella’s 13th birthday. The source added, “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.”
Additionally, after J Lo and A-Rod started dating, J Lo’s kids started attending school in Miami, which was their home base, and supposedly she has no plans to uproot their lives from where they are now.
And as for how J Lo and A-Rod are handling the separation… Well, amid the rumors of Alex’s infidelity, the source revealed that Jennifer has been “fine,” and that “She is very strong and will continue to follow her heart.”
As for Alex, he’s supposedly taking it more challenging. The source said, “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.” Neither J Lo nor A-Rod have spoken out on any of this directly, but after their split, A-Rod did post some unexpected tributes to their relationship on his IG stories.
