On Wednesday, reports got out that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are dating.
An anonymous source claims the two have been seeing each other for several weeks now. The source added that J.Lo “seems excited” but is also guarded.
In fact, the New York Daily News reported the two have been dating for months already. They have been seen together backstage following a recent concert of J.Lo in Las Vegas.
Moreover, an insider shared, “They are really into each other because they have so much in common — from their Latin roots, to their love of New York, and their kids.”
But the source added, “It’s not serious at all. J. Lo is just dating.” The insider explained, “Jennifer and Alex are both not looking for a relationship, just a good light-hearted time.”
Alex is a 41 year-old former New York Yankees baseball player. The Yankees legend retired last season and got a full-time job with Fox this month as an MLB analyst. Apparently, he doesn’t only have a new job but a new relationship as well.
The ex-slugger has two children, Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, with ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, to whom he was married to for six years before they split in 2008.
J.Lo and Alex both have an extensive track record of romantic pasts with other big shots. Alex has been associated with Cameron Diaz, Madonna and Kate Hudson. Recently, reports say he also had been dating tech mogul, Anne Wojcicki. But the two split up after less than a year of dating.
The music superstar is a 47 year-old mother of twins and is on her second season of the cop drama TV series, Shades of Blue.
Also, J.Lo finalized her divorce from singer, Marc Anthony in 2014. In the past, she also had relationships with Ben Affleck and P. Diddy. Just recently, she was rumored to have been seeing Drake.
However, in a new interview on The Daily Show, J.Lo denied that she and Drake are dating. In a way, her statement seemed to imply that it was nothing serious at all.
“Genuinely, did you get with Drake because you didn’t know me yet?” Trevor Noah asked his guest. J.Lo laughed and replied, “Let me clear this up. I am not with Drake. Maybe that’s all I need to say.”
When asked about the relationship between J.Lo and Alex, reps for both stars refused to comment.
