Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announce that they are staying together.
After reports emerged on Friday that the couple had ended their four-year relationship, they released a joint statement to NBC News via their representative on Saturday.
“All reports are inaccurate. We’re working through some things.”
Earlier on Saturday, multiple sources close to the couple said, “They never officially broke up and talked about it, but they’re still together. They hit a rough patch that made them think about what to do. They are committed to each other. They work through things.”
Lopez, 51, is currently filming in the Dominican Republic while Rodriguez, 45, is in Miami.
The sources said: “It is difficult to see each other, especially with quarantine and Covid, but they remain together.” “It is important for them to stay together.”
The famous couple has already twice postponed their wedding due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We definitely talked about it. I mean, in our time, we’ve been married before, it’s like, ‘Are we getting married? Right? What does that mean to us?'” Lopez told Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s Andy Radio in December. “It was really sad because we were supposed to get married in June and we planned for it all. So in March or April, we would look for the tube and go,“ It probably wouldn’t happen. ”Italy is the worst place in the world. And we were going to get married in Italy. It was like Yes, it was like, “Well, we have to cancel everything.”
The Bronx-born Puerto Rican singer and actress added that they had tried to “regroup a few months ago,” but it wasStill the time was not right.“
Lopez and Rodriguez have been working for two years. They got engaged for the first time in 2019 While vacationing in the Bahamas.
In May last year, NBC’s “TODAY” co-host, Jenna Bush, asked Lopez If she had learned anything new from Rodriguez during quarantine.
Lopez said, “We realized we really love each other. We’re fine at home together.”
“We know that whenever we go back to somewhat normal, and whatever this new normal, it won’t be like this. And we’re not going to have this time that we’re having it now. So, we’re just kind of trying to taste it and be grateful for what it is.”
Lopez is Mother of twins Max and AmyThe 13-year-old shares her with ex-husband Mark Anthony. Rodriguez is the father of two daughters, Ella, 12, and Natasha, 16.
“The kids really loved each other from the start,” Lopez told TODAY last May. “We all love each other. We’ve been meeting Alex and I together for over three years. We are a family.”
In 2018, Lopez said her relationship with Rodriguez was different from her previous romantic relationship.
“It brought something into my life that I had never had before, which is a kind of support and unconditional love, a kind of soul-congruent twin match,” Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geest said in time. “This is something different to me, now I know what it feels like to be with me. It works as much as I do. It is driven as much as I am.”
