In recent months, J.Lo and A-Rod's relationship seemed to be on the decline after it was alleged that the 45-year-old had a secret affair with Southern Charm reality TV star. She previously insisted, though, that their conversations were "innocent."

"He's never physically cheated on his fiancée with me," the 30-year-old previously told Page Six, while sources close to Rodriguez told The New York Post that he never even met her.

"All this stuff was a year ago [but] it’s being aired now. I don’t know what to do," the blonde beauty explained. "I have tried to be as quiet as possible. I don’t want anything bad for his family, or for mine. We are definitely innocent in this."

As OK! previously reported, after a very public rough patch in their relationship, the power couple officially called it quits and released a statement on the split. "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," J.Lo and A-Rod announced on the Today show on Thursday, April 15. "We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and each other’s children."

While the pair put on a united front following initial rumors that they had called off their engagement, Rodriguez's link to LeCroy was reportedly the last straw for the "If You Had My Love" crooner.

"The whole scandal was a huge embarrassment for Jennifer," a source previously told OK!. "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.

"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," the insider explained. "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 former power couple got together in 2017, and Rodriguez popped the question in 2019, but they postponed their wedding twice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The drama began earlier this year when LeCroy’s costar Craig Conover claimed on the Southern Charm reunion that LeCroy “flew down to Miami” to meet up with a former MLB player. Rodriguez' name was suddenly thrown into the mix after Danni Baird said that he was the former Major League Baseball player LeCroy was DM'ing.

LeCroy quickly addressed the situation. "He contacted me, and yes, we DMed, but other than that there was nothing … I’ve never seen him [or] touched him," LeCroy insisted after it was implied that she hooked up with the athlete.

Page Six was the first to report that LeCroy wished Lopez and Rodriguez the best.
