It’s not easy to be Alex rodriguez at present. Not only is he is always on the heels of his breakup of Jennifer lopez, which quickly resumed Ben affleck, he also has to deal with avid Boston Red Sox fans. While working for FOX Sports on Monday, Affleck’s hometown made sure A-Rod knew what court he was on.
As Rodriguez called out the MLB playoff game between the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros, the background crowd at Fenway Park could be heard taunting him with chants of “J.Lo”. It doesn’t help that the former baseball player was a New York Yankee when he played professionally – the team is a longtime rival to the Red Sox, so the trolls were out in force. At another point in the show, fans decided to remind her who her ex is dating now with “Affleck” mentions while he was working. Let’s just say it wasn’t A-Rod’s best day at work.
Rodriguez moved forward like the professional he is, but it must have hurt his ego (even a little). He and Lopez split in April amid allegations of fraud with Southern charm star Madison LeCroy, who recently got engaged to her boyfriend. Lopez quickly switched to ex-fiancé Affleck, and Rodriguez was left moping on his Instagram page. He reflected on their time together in August, recounting HEY, “I have had five years of an amazing life and partnership and also with my daughters we have learned so much.”
There were rumors he could have dated NFL secondary reporter Melanie Collins, who was vacationing with him on a Mediterranean yacht, but it seems to have been a fair situation between friends. For now, Rodriguez is single, but he’s struggling to step out of the shadow of his iconic ex-fiancée.
