Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are officially calling it quits, a few weeks after dismissing breakup rumours.
Jennifer and Alex who have been a couple since 2017, have called off their two-year engagement and will focus on remaining friends.
The two revealed the news in an exclusive joint statement: “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. Will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. 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.”
Reports first circulated in March that they had called off their engagement. However, multiple sources revealed at the time that the two were still together.
“They hit a rough patch that made them think about what they should do,” the sources added, noting that it was tough for the couple to see each other amid COVID-19 restrictions. While Lopez, 51, was working in the Dominican Republic, and Rodriguez, 45, was in Miami.
“All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things,” Lopez and Rodriguez said in a joint statement in March.

However, breakup rumours swirled again earlier this week when Lopez shared a series of selfies from the set of her new movie, “Shotgun Wedding,” and her engagement ring was missing from the photos.
Lopez and Rodriguez announced their engagement in March 2019 after two years of dating. Rodriguez proposed in the Bahamas.
Lopez was previously married to Ojani Noa (1997–1998), Cris Judd (2001–2003), and Marc Anthony (2004–2014), with who she shares 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
In 2018, she opened up about her special bond with Rodriguez in an interview with Willie Geist on Sunday TODAY.
“He’s brought something to my life that I’ve never had before, which is unconditional support and love, kind of matching of twin souls. That’s a different thing for me now I know what it’s like to be with me. He works as much as I do, he’s kind of as driven as I am.” She said.
