While Jennifer Lopez recently refuted rumours of a romantic hook-up with Drake, a source tells People that doesn’t mean the “Shades of Blue” star is single — because she’s dating former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.
“She seems excited,” said “a source close to Lopez,” adding: “He has been around her family and she really likes that he is a dad. She is aware, though, that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious. For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.”
News that JLo and A-Rod are an item was first reported by LoveBScott.com, which cites a source that claims the actress/singer’s “new man is A-Rod. They’ve been quietly dating for a couple months. Her thing w/ Drake ended after TMZ reported he hooked up with French booty model / porn star Rosee Divine in Amsterdam back in January. This was after Drake spent Christmas with J. Lo and her family! She promptly kicked him to the curb. [She and A-Rod] haven’t gone public yet, but I can confirm this is absolutely true.”
The source adds: “He was with her in Vegas during this latest leg of her Planet Hollywood Vegas show. They were all coupled up behind the scenes, not public, but absolutely not hiding their relationship around close friends and family. It is definitely for real.”
The list of famous women A-Rod has dated is as impressive as his batting average, with his rumoured exes including Madonna, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, to name just a few.
Both Lopez and Rodriguez are newly single, having both exited relationships (Rogridguez recently ended his year-long relationship with Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki, while Lopez and on-again, off-again beau Casper Smart are definitely off).
Reps for both Rodriguez and Lopez have yet to comment.
