A literal hot minute has passed since Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s enchanting engagement last month, and people are already trying to rain on their parade. Accusations of Rodriguez’s alleged infidelity made headlines literally the day after the couple announced their happy news to the world. But now Lopez is hitting back with a casual “Jenny From the Block” shrug of her shoulders.
In an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Wednesday, Charlamagne Tha God asked the “Medicine” singer about former MLB All-Star Jose Canseco’s allegations that Rodriguez cheated on her with his ex-wife, Jessica Canseco. “He is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica poor girl she has no idea who he really is,” Canseco wrote on Twitter last month. “I was there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone. Alex Rodriguez stop being a piece of s–t stop cheating on Jennifer Lopez.”
For her part, Jessica Canseco was forced to release a statement vehemently denying the claims on Twitter. “Those false accusations Jose is making are not true! I have known Alex for many years and haven’t even seen him for over 5. I certainly did not sleep with him,” she said, adding, “I am friendly with both him and Jennifer.”
Now, nearly a month of staying mum, Lopez has finally addressed Canseco’s statements, and basically, she’s not bothered.
“I mean, it doesn’t matter. I know what the truth is. I know who [Alex] is. He knows who I am. We’re just happy,” Lopez said. “We’re not gonna let other people come out and tell us what our relationship is. I know what our relationship is.”
Now that that’s settled, Lopez has other things on her mind: like the Hustlers movie she’s currently filming with Cardi B and finding the time to plan what is sure to be an epic, star-studded wedding to Rodriguez.
