As news that the pair broke up after four years together shocked fans of the typically inseparable A-list couple, the two issued a rare, joint statement to E! News on Saturday, March 13 to address the matter for the first time.
“All the reports are inaccurate,” they said. “We are working through some things.”
In addition, a source close to the couple told E! News that J.Lo and A-Rod “hit a rough patch,” adding, “There was absolutely no third party involved. The Madison reports are not true. They were blindsided by the report that started from Page Six that went wild. There was never a confirmation from either side.”
In January, romance rumors erupted about A-Rod and Southern Charm‘s Madison LeCroy after she made cryptic comments on the show’s reunion about communicating with a “very famous” and “married” “ex-MLB player” over DM. At the time, a source told E! News that Alex, who is divorced, “doesn’t know her and has never met her.” In February, Madison told Page Six that she and A-Rod have “spoken on the phone” “randomly” last year but “never been physical.” She added, “He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me.” A-Rod did not comment.
