Is Alex Rodriguez Getting Back At Ben Affleck For ‘Stealing’ Jennifer Lopez?
After news about Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s split earlier this year, rumors have been swirling around the retired Baseball shortstop. For instance, one tabloid recently claimed that the former New York Yankee has been obsessing over his ex-fiance and her new beau, Ben Affleck.
In the recent edition of Star, the outlet claimed that Rodriguez is not happy Lopez and Affleck rekindled their romance and he is now trying to make things complicated for them. Allegedly, he is planning to get back at them, particularly to the actor.
It can be recalled that the retired baseball player was spotted hanging out with SNL producer Lindsay Shookus, who happens to be Affleck’s ex-girlfriend. This sighting has ignited the speculation that he is trying to get revenge on his ex-fiance and her new boyfriend.
According to the unnamed source of the publication, “Rodriguez is obsessed with Jen and Ben’s relationship” and is “having a hard time letting go.” The insider further asserted that his actions are “plain weird” and he's becoming “obsessive”.
Now, the major question is whether Rodriguez is getting back at Affleck for “stealing” Lopez. The outlet didn’t provide concrete evidence that he is out for revenge against the actor – aside from claiming that he was spotted at Shookus’ birthday party.
This report has already been clarified, with Rodriguez’s rep making it clear that that the pro baseball player and the SNL producer were longtime friends. After that party, the two haven’t been seen spending time together – or indicating that they are dating.
The publication also alleged Rodriguez’s weird actions over Lopez and Affleck’s rekindled romance. However, there’s no actual proof to support its claim. In fact, the MLB player’s Instagram account showed that he is focusing on his self and enjoying his single life.
In addition, it appears as though the exes are on good terms even though they ended their engagement months ago. Several tabloids have just been making stories after they announced their separation and most of the narratives revolved around Rodriguez.
Previously, InStyle claimed that Rodriguez warned Affleck to stay away from Lopez. On the other hand, Globe asserted that the former New York Yankee believed he and the pop star were getting back together before she reunited with the actor.
Moreover, previous reports claimed that Rodriguez is dating Katie Holmes after he was seen entering and leaving the actress’ apartment building. This story has been debunked, and he was spotted in the area because he’s actually looking for new properties to purchase.
