The “future” of JLO & ARod
Jennifer Lopez is through playing the field. The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer has been dating retired baseball pro Alex Rodriguez “for about two months,” a close Lopez insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.
In that short time, those close to the 47-year-old multihyphenate have already deemed the 14-time MLB All-Star, 41, a more worthy mate than her previous fling, 17-years-younger Drake.
“He’s a better fit,” explains the insider, ticking off the new duo’s commonalities: They’re both Latino superstars and New York natives (their childhood homes are roughly 7 miles apart); both are parents (he shares daughters Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis; she’s the mom of 9-year-old twins Max and Emme with former husband Marc Anthony) and both are legends in their field.
After decades of serial dating, both believe they may have found their match. Says the insider, “They definitely see a future together.”
Do you believe this? I believe this. I believe it because, as we know, as we’ve seen, as we’ve lamented, JLO loves love. And… JLO loves quick love. It’s not unusual for JLO to go from hi, here’s my new boyfriend to …oh, by the way, I’m married. So if she’s looking at a future with ARod in it? Well of course she is. OF COURSE she is. It’s been five minutes since she’s considered a future with a man. This man is an asshole. Requirements met.
I would love to be wrong. Make me wrong, JLO. Please.
