On Tuesday, August 3, the blonde beauty shared a bombshell photo of herself flaunting her bikini body while on a boat. It seems Collins left all her problems on the shore, as she captioned her pic: "The cure for anything is salt water… sweat, tears or the sea. ⚓️."
Collins started making headlines at the end of last month after she was spotted with A. Rod in St. Tropez during his European trip to celebrate his birthday. The apparent new flames were accompanied by former NFL star Eric Decker and wife Jesse James Decker, as the crew was seen enjoying some time together on a yacht before boarding a smaller boat and doing some sailing.
Apart from Collins and the recently single MLB pro — who broke up with Lopez in April following their four year relationship — reportedly donning matching all-white outfits while they were in St. Tropez, the sports reporter attended Rodriguez's birthday bash in Monte Carlo.
As OK! previously reported, the former New York Yankees player embarked on his luxurious trip ahead of his 46th year around the sun, with A.Rod taking his friends and family to Italy, St. Tropez, Monte Carlo and Ibiza on a luxury multi-million dollar yacht.

It seems the father-of-two's trip was everything he could've wanted and more, as he hung out with pals and was able to avoid his ex and rekindled flame Ben Affleck. The two also celebrated the "On The Floor" songstress' 52nd birthday in the French Riviera, something Lopez had been planning for a while, which Rodriguez reportedly knew of.
However, Rodriguez may have wanted to run into Lopez so he could show off his rumored new love interest. OK! previously reported the handsome hunk was in shambles after Lopez moved on so quickly with Affleck and is eager to find his own Hollywood rebound.
“Alex is the most competitive person you will ever meet. His ego was bruised when Jennifer dumped him, however, when she got back together with Ben Affleck, Alex’s ego was destroyed," said a Radar source. Another insider alleged Rodriguez "thinks he has something to prove," noting: "He wants to show Jennifer that she isn’t the only one that can rebound with a movie star."
And while Collins doesn't have the celebrity status Affleck nor Lopez has, the 35-year-old is in the sports world and close friends with fellow stars, such as the Deckers. In fact, the possible new couple met each other through the Deckers.
