Just a few days ago, it was rumored that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were reigniting their romance of 13 years ago.
But now that the Bennifer rumor has been debunked, she’s got a new man. Apparently…
Us Weekly is reporting Lopez has her eye on Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez, and he’s picking up what she’s putting down.
Remember, Lopez just split from Drake about a month ago. Even if Rodriguez and Lopez are casually dating, I highly doubt it is at a stage where they want to take things public. Nor do I think they’re ready to settle down together.
But Lopez did like A-Rod’s recent Instagram post, so it must mean they’re soul mates.
They also, apparently, were spotted in Vegas together recently too, so there’s that.
A source spoke with People and said of the budding relationship, “She seems excited. He has been around her family and she really likes that he is a dad. She is aware, though, that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious. For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.”
Lopez has two children, twins Max and Emme, from her marriage to Marc Anthony, which ended in 2011. Rodriguez also has two children, daughters Natasha and Ella, from his marriage to Cynthia Scurtis.
That isn’t the only thing these two have in common. Hollywood relationship drama has plagued them throughout their careers. Rodriguez has dated women like Madonna, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz and he recently split from tech CEO Anne Wojcicki, whom he dated for about a year.
I’m not saying I couldn’t see these two coupling up, but I could just as easily see the rumors as a clever publicity maneuver as Lopez celebrates Season 2 of her show Shades of Blue and prepares for her new reality show World of Dance.
