Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s relationship is still on but barely, with Rodriguez in the Dominican Republic with Lopez now, trying to save their four-year romance. What got their relationship, which seemed rock-solid publicly, to this point? People has new detail today about Lopez’s longtime private doubts about Rodriguez and how the pandemic (and quarantine) drastically altered their dynamic.
A source close to Lopez emphasized that the Southern Charm Madison LeCroy-Alex Rodriguez affair rumors are not what have caused their issues. “Madison has no bearing on the rough patch,” the source said.
Lopez reportedly had concerns about their long term compatibility long before that scandal broke in February. As a friend of Lopez told People, “She’s been contemplating breaking up with Alex for six months.”
Quarantine changed everything, a Lopez source explained: “They both liked spending more time together as a family, but it was difficult to keep that special spark when they saw each other every day.” Multiple sources told People that the couple’s honeymoon phase “faded” over the year in quarantine.
Lopez is currently filming her new movie Shotgun Wedding in the Dominican Republic, away from her children, 13 year old twins Emme and Max, and Rodriguez. The distance only caused the couple’s issues to deepen. “Filming during COVID has been very hard for her,” the outlet’s Lopez source said. Lopez misses her kids and “not having Alex around all the time makes her stressed.”
But Lopez and Rodriguez are currently working to repair their relationship. “The past few days were upsetting and stressful,” the Lopez source said. “She and Alex have a lot of issues they hope they can work through, but they both seem willing to do whatever it takes to stay together.”
People‘s update comes two days after E! ran details from a source about Rodriguez’s fight to save his relationship with J.Lo.
“They are trying to figure things out,” E!’s source said. “He absolutely does not want to split up and has made many promises to try and keep her.”
“He flew out to be with her and to prove to her how serious he is,” the source added. “They don’t know what’s going to happen. Untangling their lives, business dealings, and families would be devastating to everyone involved.”
A second source told E! that Lopez isn’t rushing to make any decisions about whether or not she’ll stay with Rodriguez. Lopez wants to “get through filming before they figure out the next steps. She wants to give him a chance to make it right and really does love him.”
A source also told E! last week that, like People reported, Lopez had been uneasy for a while about Rodriguez and so have her friends. “Jennifer’s friends for a long time had warned her that A.Rod was not a good guy and that he was using her to clean up his tarnished image after his many scandals,” one source said. “For years, Jennifer did not listen to the warnings, but now she believes them.”
