- American actress Jennifer Lopez and her former Yankees player fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, have finally parted ways
- The couple, who had been engaged for two years, have announced that they are no longer an item
- According to a statement released by the duo, they are better off being friends
Popular American music star and actress Jennifer Lopez and her man, Alex Rodriguez, have now broken off their engagement.
The duo who was engaged for two years released a statement where they explained that they are better off being just friends. This came after several weeks of rumours making the rounds that their relationship was facing tough times.
In a statement to Today, the couple said that they would continue to support each other’s businesses.
They also said that out of respect for their children, the only comment they were willing to give on the matter was to thank fans who had supported them.
“We have realised we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
Their split does not seem unconnected to claims that Alex was allegedly involved with the 30-year-old reality star, Madison LeCroy. After the reports made the rounds, Alex and Jennifer denied them and termed them as malicious.
A reality star named Madison LeCroy claimed that she was getting to know Jennifer's fiancé Alex on a deeper level and rumours started to swirl that he was cheating.
However, after weeks of denying claims that they had called off their engagement, Jennifer was spotted without her ring worth $1.8 million.
Over the weekend, Jennifer posted a picture of herself chilling out and wearing sweatpants and she captioned her post:
"Keep calm and work on the weekend."
This was the moment that her fans realised that she wasn't wearing her engagement ring.
In a series of tweets, the rapper explained why women should not be saddled with the responsibility of splitting or paying bills.
