On Friday, March 12, multiple outlets reported that the two finally ended their engagement. However, the couple issued a joint statement on Saturday, March 13, stating, “All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things.”
A source close to the couple opened up to E! News about their relationship status. The source mentioned that J.Lo and A-Rd were caught off guard by how fast the breakup rumor spread.
The insider said, “Alex is convincing Jennifer to try and work things out. Jennifer is giving herself time to think about their future. They have several investments together and their children are incredibly close. The idea of untangling it all seems like such a massive undertaking that she doesn’t want to exit the relationship too quickly.”
Though they’re not ending their relationship now, the source mentioned, “Alex is fully aware that this relationship is currently hanging by a thread.”
This isn’t the first time that the 51-year-old singer/actress and her fiancé had experienced problems in their relationship. Another source told E! News on Friday, March 12, that “things have been bumpy in the relationship for the last six months.”
The first source explained on Saturday, “Jennifer was ready to end things with Alex several months ago. After fighting for weeks and living separately, Jennifer was done. But Alex convinced her that he would be better.”
Also, the recent reports about A-Rod, 45, and Madison LeCroy of Southern Charm, weren’t true at all. There’s no third party involved in the couple’s latest problem. The rumors between them started when the reality star commented about communicating with a certain “ex-MLB player” during the show’s reunion in January. She told Page Six last month that they had “randomly spoken on the phone” last year but cleared that he never cheated physically on J.Lo with her.
The couple got engaged in 2019 and planned on getting married in 202 but the pandemic prevented them from doing so. At present, the first source confirmed, “Jennifer hasn’t officially called off the engagement but she has no plans to walk down the aisle in the future.”
