Why does J.Lo insist on breaking up with Alex Rodriguez?
Jennifer Lopez insisted on the breakup, said the source: "There are so many unanswered problems." According to a source familiar with the matter, the COVID-19 lockdown exacerbated the couple's issues. "We both wanted to spend more time together as a family, but it was impossible to maintain that special spark when they saw each other every day," this individual said.
There were also allegations about Rodriguez's infidelity. "Whether or not he has cheated doesn't matter," a music source told People. She isn't going to put up with the fear in the air surrounding them.
So, what's next for Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez? It's uncertain, but according to People, a Miami source said, "They will want to be friends, and there is respect there. However, they are clearly going their different ways."
The high-profile couple made a splash at the inauguration, but their love underscored issues that arose after months of living in tight quarters during the pandemic.
