After trying to make it work for the past month, reports say Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are officially apart! Apparently the ‘trust’ of the triple threat had been shattered and once it did, there was no turning back!
Of course she did her best for the sake of their blended family, but in the end there was no way she could stay with her fiancé and they broke the engagement.

The former couple made a statement through E! News that reads: “We have realized that we are better as friends and we look forward to staying that way … We will continue to work together and support each other in all of our shared businesses and projects.”
This comes after reports circulated about their troubles in paradise last month.
It was rumored that they had been fighting for months and slowly lost faith in each other.

But even though they did, the pair made it clear at the time that they weren’t over yet.
The former Yankees athlete insisted that he wasn’t single and that “ we’re working through some things. ”
Sure enough, he even flew to the Dominican Republic, where J.Lo. was filming a movie to spend time with her and fix things.
Obviously, it didn’t work out for the two of them in the end and they broke up for good a few days ago, according to an insider.
Jen reportedly feels ‘at peace’ when it comes to this decision as she ‘hasn’t been happy for a while’.
Another source explained, “Once her trust has been broken, there is no turning back. She feels very good about her decision because she knows that A. Rod will still be in her life, just in a different capacity. ‘
On the other hand, A. Rod is presumably still holding on to the hope that one day they will reunite.
