Four months after Jennifer Lopez called off her engagement from former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, she has unfollowed him on Instagram and removed all photos of him from the social media site. This comes after she moved on from their relationship by rekindling her romance with her ex-fiancé Ben Affleck.
Entertainment Tonight reported that while traces of Rodriguez appear on Lopez’s IGTV videos, there are no longer any photos of him on her page, and she is not following him. Rodriguez still follows Lopez, however, and still has photos of her on his page.
Lopez and Rodriguez announced their breakup back in April after a two year engagement and four years of dating.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the former couple said at the time. “We 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,” they added of Lopez’s 13-year-old twins, Emme and Max, and Rodriguez’s daughters, Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13. “Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to every one who has sent kind words and support.”
Lopez rekindled her romance with Affleck one month later, with a source saying that their “relationship is serious.”
“They have insane, on another level, chemistry. They are both super passionate and are head over heels with each other, just like they once were,” the source said. “This time around, however, they both really feel like this is it.”
The insider went on to say that “everything feels 100 percent natural with them. Once they rekindled, it was like no time had passed.”
Another source said that Rodriguez was “surprised” by Lopez reuniting with Affleck.
“Jennifer and Alex have remained in contact after breaking up and have even seen each other since the split. The two plan to remain friends and are also in business together,” this source said back in June. “Alex understands that Jennifer is single, but felt shocked by [her and Affleck’s] quick meetup. At the end of the day, Alex wants Jennifer to be happy, but the way everything has unfolded doesn’t sit well with him.”
