Why did JLo and A-Rod split?

A source close to the couple confirmed that JLo and A-rod have split, and it’s been “a few weeks.” However, no concrete information about what led to their split has been disclosed so far. The news of their split comes after Alex had surrounded himself with an alleged cheating controversy.

The former baseball player was being linked to Madison LeCroy after reports claimed she had hooked up with an ex-MLB player. However, Madison denied these rumors and made it clear that these are false accusations.

This is not the only time that the couple might have gone through hardship in their relationship. In 2020, JLo had hinted she was rethinking her decision to get married again.

JLo, who has been married three times, said in an interview: I mean, at our age, we’ve both been married before, it’s like, do we get married? Do we not? What does it mean for us? It was really sad because we were supposed to get married in June and we had planned it all. So in March or April, we’re looking down the pipe and we’re going, ‘This is maybe not going to happen.’ Italy’s the worst place in the world. And we were going to get married in Italy. It was, yeah, it was like, I was like, ‘OK, we got to cancel everything.’”
