Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez call off engagement
NEW YORK / NBC News — Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have called it quits and announced that their engagement has been called off on NBC’s TODAY show.
J-Lo and A-Rod said that they will continue to work together on their shared businesses and projects as friends, the pair said in a joint statement.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the former couple said.
“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,” they said.
Lopez is the mom of twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. Rodriguez is the dad to two daughters, Ella, 12, and Natasha, 16.
Rumors swirled last month that the singer, 51, and former Yankees baseball player, 45, had called it quits, but they released a statement at the time saying that they were “working through some things.”
“They hit a rough patch that made them think about what they should do,” multiple sources close to the couple had said.
