It is officially over between Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.

Earlier last month it was reported that the two had called it quits, but they quickly shut down the rumours. As the rumours continued to circulate, Jlo and Arod released a statement saying, “all reports are inaccurate, we are working through some things”.

The couple, who have been dating since 2017 and seemed like they were pushing past all obstacles, have officially called off their two-year engagement.

In a joint statement released yesterday, the couple said, “we have realised we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects”. They continued by saying, “we wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support”.
