On March 12, Page Six dropped a bombshell report claiming the couple's romance had been on the rocks due to Alex's alleged flirtation with a reality TV star.
"He's now in Miami getting ready for baseball season, and she's filming her movie in the Dominican Republic," a source said.
However, on March 13, the couple told TMZ they are still together. "All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things," they said, adding that no third party is involved.
Several other outlets also confirmed the split on March 12. A source told People magazine that the breakup was "a long time coming."
Recently, there had been reports that Alex had been FaceTiming with "Southern Charm" star Madison LeCroy. At the time, an A-Rod source told Page Six that he didn't know Madison. Madison, however, told Page Six that she and A-Rod had "spoken on the phone" but "never met up."
"That's the truth," she said, adding they've "never been physical" and "never had any kind of anything." She then called him "just an acquaintance."
After the split reports surfaced, though, a source told Page Six that Madison was the last straw. "The Madison LeCroy scandal was the reason they finally broke up," the source said. "There were already problems, but Jennifer was really embarrassed by it."
Just last week, there had been reports that the couple's twice-postponed wedding was back on track. Last month, they were also photographed looking happy in the Dominican Republic.
The couple's romance was like a fairytale, as they fiercely backed each other's interests and careers. The baseball legend proposed in the Bahamas in early 2019 after two years of dating. J-Rod, as the tabloids called them, had planned on a 2020 wedding, but the coronavirus pandemic halted their plans twice.
Earlier this week, Allure published a feature on JLo. In it, she said she and Alex attended couple's therapy during the pandemic.
"I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship," she said.
Of her twice-postponed wedding, she said, "I think we just feel like, 'Let's just wait it out.' There's no rush, we're good, everything's cool and it'll happen when the time is right. I feel like it's not a huge priority to go and have a big wedding right now, that's not what life is about."
