After news broke that the couple decided to call it quits after four years together, the duo set the record straight about their relationship status on Saturday, March 13.
"All the reports are inaccurate," the pair said in a rare joint statement to E! News. "We are working through some things."
A source close to the pair echoed the same sentiments, telling E! News they simply hit a rough patch in their romance.
However, the insider emphasized that there was absolutely no third party involved. Earlier this year, rumors erupted that the former MLB star was romantically linked with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy. But the insider reiterated the reports were false.
Despite the pair's relationship struggles, the source explained J.Lo and A-Rod never officially decided to go their separate ways. If anything, the source said they both felt blindsided by Page Six's report and there was never confirmation from either side about a split.
The duo, who got engaged in March 2019, hoped to tie the knot last year. "You know we tried twice in 2020. We got bit twice by COVID-19," Alex said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in January. "You know, they say third time's a charm, so let's hope it's what we want to hear."
However, Jennifer previously admitted she wasn't in a rush to walk down the aisle. "We postponed the wedding twice. We had planned what we really, really wanted to do, [but] I don't know if we'll be able to re-create that," she told Elle for its February 2021 issue. "We canceled it, and since then, we haven't really talked about it."
At this time, it's unclear if the couple has put their wedding plans on hold. However, one thing is certain: They are giving their love another shot.
