Alex Rodriguez was allegedly expecting to reunite with Jennifer Lopez. Hence, he has been blindsided by her reunion with Ben Affleck. Gossip mongers claim A-Rod is shocked about JLo already moving on. Apparently, Rodriguez was under the impression that “he’d win back” Lopez. He was completely crushed when he heard that she accompanied Affleck on a ski trip.
In February, Rodriguez’s scandalous text messages to other women leaked. Consequently, the fate of his relationship to Lopez became uncertain. That is when Affleck reportedly swooped in and wooed Lopez all over again.

Taking Digs At Ben Affleck
After Lopez’s split from Rodriguez became official, Lopez and Affleck fled to the private Yellowstone Club in Montana. Affleck is rumored to own a ski chalet. Reportedly, Rodriguez has reached out to Lopez to vent his frustrations over her fling with Affleck. However, Lopez is “not interested in rekindling anything” with the former MLB star.
After the word got around about Lopez and Affleck’s trip, Rodriguez was approached about the news. The athlete responded with the simple phrase, “Go Yankees”. The comment was thought to be a subtle jab at Affleck. After all, Affleck is a diehard Red Sox fan, the Yankees’ rival team.
A-Rod Is Not Trying To Win JLo Back
In truth, it’s totally possible the two are in communication. The exes said in their breakup statement that they are “better as friends and look forward to remaining so”. The couple even said they will “continue to work together and support each other” in the future. That being said, it doesn’t seem like Rodriguez is making any desperate strides to get Lopez back.
Surely, Rodriguez has some complicated feelings towards his split from Lopez after having dated for four years. However, there’s no evidence that he’s trying to sabotage Lopez’s future relationships. As a matter of fact, Rodriguez appears far from bitter about the split. On an Instagram story, Rodriguez seemed to be professing his plans to start anew. The baseball star wrote–
“I am about to step into a new beginning in my life. Anything that doesn’t serve me is clearing out of my life. New levels are unlocking for me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am remaining patient and know that this new phase of my life is coming.”
It’s impossible to tell what anyone is truly feeling. Although, those words don’t seem like they’re coming from an embittered ex.
