Having lunch in Beverly Hills, Lopez saw Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez pass by. She saw who it was. And her first response? She was about to yell in his face. She said,

“I almost yelled out ‘Alex,’ but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that. I could literally just have walked away. But I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say ‘Hey.’”

A-Rod replied, “You look so beautiful.” Smart move, A-Rod. Smart Move.

Though the two looked promising, it all came down crashing when the pandemic started. As the pandemic advanced, their romance began to wane. And they eventually called their engagement off in 2021.

Though it might not have gone as they wanted it to, JLo will always cherish the bonding with him. Both have now gone their separate ways. Lopez is married to Ben Affleck, while A-Rod has just ended his relationship with Kat Padgett.
