After rumors began swirling that Jennifer Lopez’s beau Alex Rodriguez had an alleged affair with reality TV star Madison LeCroy, OK! has learned that the “If You Had My Love” singer is keeping a close eye on her man.
“The whole scandal was a huge embarrassment for Jennifer. She is a total control freak when it comes to her image, and cheating rumors are not a good look, even when they are not true,” a source exclusively tells OK!. “You don’t get to be the biggest star in the world without paying close attention to every detail. Alex is surprisingly naïve when it comes to celebrity and fame. He doesn’t think about how every move he makes will be scrutinized and isn’t as careful as she is when it comes to social media.”
The insider stressed “that has now changed,” adding: “let’s just say he won’t be liking any more thirsty reality stars' pictures. He is on a very tight leash. She is the boss!"
As OK! previously reported, LeCroy has since denied having a physical relationship with Rodriguez, who has been engaged to Lopez since March 2019. Speculation about the Bravo personality and the former New York Yankees slugger emerged earlier this month when Southern Charm alum Craig Conover claimed on the reunion special that LeCroy “flew to Miami to f**k an ex-MLB player” last year.
"He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me," LeCroy said, adding that she "talked to [Rodriguez] randomly, but not consistently." While the conversion topics were not revealed, LeCroy did say their chats were "innocent."
"All this stuff was a year ago [but] it’s being aired now. I don’t know what to do," the hairstylist added. "I have tried to be as quiet as possible. I don’t want anything bad for his family, or for mine.”
Since the explosive cheating claims, Lopez and Rodriguez have put on a united front. They first appeared together at the Super Bowl, then the former athlete went all out to honor his love for the “Let’s Get Loud” singer on Valentine’s Day.
On Sunday, the Maid in Manhattan star shared footage of her fiancé’s sweet sentiments on the special day. In a clip, played to Frank Sinatra’s “My Funny Valentine,” Lopez showed off a massive bouquet of flowers from Rodriguez.
In her caption, Lopez noted that February is the couple’s “special month,” adding: “Our anniversary month… We met again for the first time on February 1st… the first time we went out was two days later and since then there hasn’t been a day we haven’t been together or spoken.”
“I love you and all you do for me and with me,” she wrote. “You are my funny valentine❤️.”
