Jennifer Lopez broke her silence on Instagram on Sunday morning, following allegations that her romance with Alex Rodriguez ended on Friday.
Lopez, 51, uploaded a video montage on TikTok on March 14 with the caption “Sunday brunch playlist.” The video was set to rapper Saweetie’s 2020 viral hit, “Pretty Bitch Freestyle,” and included a sequence of footage spanning J-Lo’s career, including a strong clap back at tabloid allegations throughout the years.
During the sentence “trending off a selfie,” the celebrity included a snapshot of her popular white bikini image from earlier this year.
The post included clips from her music videos and movies, including Hustlers and Selena, as well as her appearance at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, screenshots of previous social media posts that sparked controversy, and, yes, real media headlines about her, including one claiming she and Alex had broken up. Despite this, J.Lo and A-Rod issued a joint statement on Saturday, March 13 that stated, “All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things.”
The message did not specify if the couple, known colloquially as “J-Rod,” is still a together – or even engaged.
TMZ’s “A-Rod…I’M NOT SINGLE …” headline was also included in the video. It was posted with a video of Alex making his first public appearance during the turmoil earlier on Sunday, just hours before J.Lo released her montage on social media.
After sharing those tabloid articles, her TikTok just cut to a tape of J-Lo stating, “You’re dumb.”
Saweetie raps: “I’m a top-dollar bitch, but I’m far from a hoochie (Pretty Bitch Music) / Trending off a selfie / Chanel me, off the top shelf, please / Only f–k with n—as if they handsome and wealthy / Crab meat got my ass looking healthy / I ain’t worried ’bout a blog or a bitch.”
So, much like Saweetie rapped, “I ain’t worried ’bout a blog or a bitch / Speakin’ on my moves like it’s news, you a snitch,” Lopez appears to be feeling the same way. The Bronx-born actress certainly doesn’t have much time to entertain romance rumors anyhow, as she’s presently filming Lionsgate’s new picture, Shotgun Wedding, in the Dominican Republic.
The video was released in response to an article in The Sun claiming that the cheating accusations that have recently plagued the pair were the ‘last straw’ for the singer.
The couple, who have been together for around four years, announced their engagement in 2019 but then postponed their wedding twice because of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Lopez has previously stated that she and Rodriguez attended couple’s counseling while in quarantine. The mother of two opened out about how the experience was “helpful” for her relationship with A-Rod in her March 2021 cover story for Allure’s 30th Anniversary Issue. “We got to work on ourselves. We did therapy. I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship,” she said.
Despite the couple’s denials, a source told the outlet: ‘Jennifer feels she just can’t trust Alex and she doesn’t want to be embarrassed any more.
‘These latest cheating rumours are the final straw. Everyone knows she can do better and doesn’t deserve this.’
Following the news of their relationship drama, a source close to the couple told E! News exclusively on Saturday that while J.Lo and A-Rod are not calling it quits for the time being, “Alex is fully aware that this relationship is currently hanging by a thread” and “things have been bumpy in the relationship for the last six months.”
