It's been a confusing week for fans of J.Lo and A-Rod.
It was initially reported that the superstar couple was still planning their wedding, having had to delay their original plans because of the pandemic. But on Friday, multiple outlets, including Page Six and TMZ, reported that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez had broken up and called off their engagement.
However, on Saturday, Lopez and Rodriguez released a joint statement suggesting that they'd not split, after all. According to People, J.Lo and A-Rod said in a statement, "We are working through some things."
Meanwhile, a source told People, "They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up." The source also shot down rumors that A-Rod had allegedly been talking to Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy. Per the source, the unsubstantiated rumors "had no bearing on the rough patch at all."
It would seem that the couple's "rough patch" was worsened due to distance and the pandemic. Per People's source, "She's working in the Dominican Republic and he's in Miami so it's tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID ... but they want to try to stay together."
J.Lo is currently filming Shotgun Wedding alongside Josh Duhamel in the Dominican Republic. Just two weeks ago, Lopez and Rodriguez posed for some loved-up snaps on location, and their relationship appeared to be going strong.
