Alexander Rodriguez, also known as A-Rod, is an American former professional baseball player who played as a shortstop and third baseman. The former player had been linked to many high-profile celebrities in his career, but what caught everyone’s attention was when he started dating singing legend, Jennifer Lopez. The ex-couple first met at a New York Yankees baseball game when the Ain’t Your Mama singer was still married to Marc Anthony, her now-ex-husband and the father of her two children.
But did you know that Rodriguez once admitted in a 1998 interview that if he got the chance to date someone, he would like to date Jennifer Lopez? and he responded, “Yes, it would be my dream date.” Well, guess what he already planned ages ago: to be with her in the future. After marriages, divorces, and children, J.L.o. and the baseball legend found each other when she was single, and their fans were quite sure that the duo would marry as they never failed to show support for each other. They have loved each other, but it didn’t end up the way their fans thought it would.

Sean Diddy apologized to Alex Rodriguez
In 2019, rumors started to do the rounds on the internet that Jennifer Lopez and her ex-boyfriend Sean Diddy were having an affair while she was with Alex Rodriguez. It all started when the Let’s Get Loud singer posted a picture on Instagram in January of the same year. She was seen wearing a sports bra in the pictures as she was posting a #10DayChallenge photo showing off her bomb figure. Sean Diddy left a comment on her photo by writing “OMG” with a heart eyes emoji. After this, many fans started calling out the rapper for his flirty behavior, as she was in a relationship with Rodriguez at the time.
Jennifer Lopez even discussed the whole thing in one of her interviews with Power 105.1, The Breakfast Club. She revealed that the rapper apologized to her ex-fiance, Alex Rodriguez, for his remarks. J.Lo recalled Comb’s comment and shared how the rapper sent her then-fiance a text saying,
“He wrote Alex after that. He was like, I didn’t mean anything. I have nothing but respect for you guys. I’m so happy for you guys, and you know we were together so many years ago. It’s just like when we were kids.”
The If You Had My Love singer then made it to the headlines for her whirlwind romance with Ben Affleck in 2000, and they got split in 2004. The rest is just history. She dated many celebrities in her life, but she believed her true love was Affleck. The duo got back together in 2021 and tied the knot in 2022, and now she’s happily married to the actor.
