Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have announced that they will be staying together.
After it was reported on Friday that the couple had ended their four-year relationship, they made a joint statement through their agent on Saturday to NBC News.
“All reports are inaccurate. We are working on some things.”
On the previous Saturday, several sources close to the couple said: “They have never officially split up and talked about it, but are still together. They have reached a difficult time where they were thinking about what to do. They are sticking together . You work through things. “
51 year old Lopez is currently shooting a movie in the Dominican Republic while 45 year old Rodriguez is in Miami.
“It’s difficult to see each other, especially with quarantine and Covid, but they stick together,” the sources said. “It is important to them that they continue to be together.”
The celebrity couple has already postponed their wedding twice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We’ve talked about it for sure. I mean, at our age we’ve both been married before. It’s like we’re getting married? Isn’t it? What does that mean to us?” Lopez told Andy Cohen about SiriusXM Radio Andy In December. “It was really sad because we were supposed to get married in June and had everything planned. So in March or April we look down the pipe and say, ‘This may not happen.’ Italy is the worst place in the world. And we wanted to get married in Italy. It was, yeah, it was like, I thought, ‘OK, we have to cancel it all.’ “
The Bronx-born Puerto Rican singer and actress added that they tried to “regroup a few months ago,” but it was “still not at the right time.“”
Lopez and Rodriguez have been engaged for two years. They got engaged for the first time in 2019 while on vacation in the Bahamas.
Last May Jenna Bush, co-host of the NBC show “TODAY,” asked Lopez if she had learned something new from Rodriguez during the quarantine.
“We found that we really like each other,” said Lopez. “We’re fine to be home together.”
“We know that if we go back to something normal, whatever that new normal is. And we won’t have the time we have right now. So we’re just kind of trying to enjoy it and.” to be grateful for what it is. “
Lopez is the one Mother of the twins Max and Emme, 13, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. Rodriguez is the father of two daughters, Ella (12) and Natasha (16).
“The kids loved each other very much from the start,” Lopez said TODAY last May. “We all love each other. We get along with Alex and I have been together for over three years. We are a family.”
In 2018, Lopez said her relationship with Rodriguez was different from her previous romances.
“He brought something into my life that I had never had before, which is a kind of unconditional support and love, a kind of matching of twin souls,” she said told Sunday TODAY Willie Geist back then. “It’s different for me, now I know what it is like to be with me. He works just like me. He is as motivated as I am.”
