After weeks of speculation and rumors, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have officially broken up.
They have confirmed the end of their nearly four-year relationship in an exclusive statement to the “Today” show on Thursday morning:
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared business 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 sent kind words and support.”
Some of the breakup rumors were fueled by a series of photos on Instagram that showed Lopez’s $1.8 million engagement ring missing from her finger, Glamour reported.
The two became engaged in March 2019 but began dating in 2017, CNN reported.
