Response and Comments
A representative for Rodriguez did not comment on the information, and a representative for Lopez also has yet to issue a statement.
LoveBScott.com was the first to report the new couple’s relationship.
Rodriguez, 41 years old, has just recently put an end to his previous relationship with a Silicon Valley CEO, one Anne Wojcicki last February after they dating for almost one year. In the past, the sports start dated high-profile celebs such as Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, amongst other A-listers.
In the meantime, the Shades of Blue TV show star has seemingly ended things with rapper Drake after sources who know both entertainers said to PEOPLE that there was never an official romantic relationship.
“It was and is fun when they see each other,” said the source. “They love hanging out and making music together. She has great respect for him and his talent and he does for her as well.”
Both Lopez and Rodriguez have children due to previous relationships. Lopez had her twins Emme and Max, 9 years old, with singer and former husband Marc Anthony. Rodrigues also shares two kids as well, Ella, 8, and Natasha, 12, with his ex Cynthia Scurtis.
The singer’s very first priority is always her children. Lopez revealed in a recent interview that this is one thing that won’t ever change.
“You know, they’re always first,” said Lopez in a PEOPLE magazine exclusive. “When you put them first, then everybody else understands the hierarchy.”
