Following their surprising announcement of a split back in March 2021, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were spotted hanging out at the Bel-Air hotel. This was only days after the announcement of their split. It is common knowledge among the fans of the ex-couple that the Los Angeles hotel holds a special place in the former couple’s romantic journey.
Their romance began exactly at the same place and it seems they decided to end their relationship at the same spot as well. After their split, Lopez and Rodriguez both revealed that it was an amicable and mutual decision. Therefore the end of their relationship was not a hurtful one for either of them.
Why did Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez Split?
The romance between Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodiguez officially began in 2017. However, the pair had already met previously in 2005 during a baseball game at Shea Stadium, in New York. At the time she was married to ex-husband Marc Anthony with whom she shares twin kids. Thus, it took more than a decade for JLo and A-Rod’s romantic ship to set sail. Years after the Ain’t you Mama singer called it off with Anthony, she got together with Rodriguez. At the time according to People, a source revealed, “They have been dating for a few weeks.” She further went on to add, “For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.”
