On Thursday, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez finally confirmed what was taking weeks: the final end of their relationship. No reason was given, the singer and her former soccer player only admitted in a statement that they are better off as friends. They will continue to work together when necessary.
Rumors have swirled about the break for quite some time. Alex is said to have been unfaithful to his fiancée with reality star Madison Licker, which can be seen in the ‘Southern Charm’ series. In one of the episodes, the young woman revealed that she had been in contact with a married player from Major League Baseball. She herself insisted that she had only been in contact with Alex over the phone, but that they had not seen one another face to face. They said, “It was the scandal that finally caused Jennifer and Alex to split up. There were really problems, but Jennifer was so embarrassed about it.”
However, both parties insisted that there might have been problems, but they were still a couple. Alex even traveled to the Dominican Republic, where Jennifer was shooting a new movie, to re-establish relationships. That seems to have worked, as the couple is pictured in a close embrace.
So everything was in vain. Sources say E! News that Jennifer is “at peace” with the interval. It appears that she has been “not happy for some time”. Moreover, the issues around Madison Likroy could have affected the singer. “Once her self-confidence is damaged, it cannot be restored,” it seems. “I feel fine about it. Her decision because she knows Alex will still be a part of her life, just in a different way.”
According to the same sources, Jennifer no longer sees a future for herself and her ex-fiancé, but the latter still hopes that things will still go well. “For the time being, he respects her desires, but he’s hoping that they get back together. He’s doing everything he can to please Jennifer.”
