Alex Rodriguez is revealing some fascinating information about fiancée Jennifer Lopez’s “very close” relationship with Kim Kardashian.
Speaking with People about a new ad for Portal from Facebook that he, Lopez and Kardashian starred in together, the 44-year-old former Yankees slugger discussed Lopez’s longtime friendship with the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star.
“We’ve all known each other for a long time,” Rodriguez tells People. “… But Kim and Jennifer are very, very close, and she’s almost like a mentee of Jennifer, and Jennifer’s mentored her a lot over the years. Now they just go back and forth.”
He adds: “They mentor each other and they have this really beautiful relationship that goes back over a decade-and-a-half, and it’s nice to do anything with Kim and our family.”
According to Rodriguez, he and Lopez regularly get together with Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, vacationing together and even participating in karaoke nights, telling People that Kardashian is a “really good” singer.
Last year, Kardashian hosted a movie night, and shared video on Instagram in which she called Lopez her “idol.”
“My inspiration for everything has been Jennifer Lopez,” she gushed in the video. “I would try and see what shoes she’d wear, what makeup, what hair — I became obsessed with glam because of Jennifer.”
Adds Rodriguez: “We have fun… anytime we see them. To see how much Kim and Jen like each other, respect each other, support each other is awesome.”
