Here’s The Real Reason Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez Broke Up–So Sad!

J.Lo and A-Rod confirmed the split rumors on April 15 with a joint statement. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” Lopez and Rodriguez explained.

“We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children,” the statement continued. “Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”

A-Rod followed up their split announcement with an interesting Instagram story, sharing memorabilia from their relationship and even tagging Lopez in the video.

Although Rodriguez’ Instagram activity seems to fit their public statement – especially the part about “remaining” friends – Lopez’s recent IG likes point to a very different theory. Fans spotted J.Lo liking a much less friendly post on that same day.

Although Lopez might simply appreciate the sentiment, the timing of this like is definitely noteworthy as well as the caption: “Don’t let them manipulate you. How many times have you been told ‘I love you’ by someone who has continued to treat you like s***?”

One fan commented, “Uh oh, jlo liked this post?! What’s going on!”

Whatever J.Lo is feeling right now, here’s hoping they’re able to remain friends in the future!
