JLo laughs with manager Benny Medina after ex-fiance ARod posts 'thirst trap' photo of his bulge on Instagram
JENNIFER Lopez appeared unbothered despite her split with Alex Rodriguez, as she laughed in the car with her manager Benny Medina.
The actress and the athlete called off their engagement last week, after four years together.
Jennifer, 51, seemed in good spirits yesterday as she cruised down the street with her manager Benny.
The duo laughed and smiled as they enjoyed their outing, despite ARod's "thirst trap" photo also shared yesterday.
The baseball player shocked fans when he posted an Instagram showing off his bulge in a side-by-side image.
The father of two flaunted his weight loss with collaged photos of his body from late last year compared with his current physique, four months later.
However, fans were not so impressed by the diet and exercise regimen as they were his "package."
"Oh lord! She kept the package," one thirsty spectator wrote in the comments section.
"How could one NOT notice," another laughed, while a third implored: "Show JLO what's she missing.."
"@jlo are you sure you leave this. @arod," another wrote sneeringly.
ARod's thirst trap came just days after a source revealed that he "isn't ready to give up" on the Hustler's star, and is "holding out hope" that they will get back together.
JLo confirmed last week that the couple decided to call off their engagement, after postponing their wedding plans due to Covid.
They announced the news in a joint statement, reading: "We have realized 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. 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."
Shortly after the decision was made, the duo was spotted having dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air in LA where they had their first date in 2017.
Despite claims that they were meeting under friendly circumstances, a source told In Touch: “[Alex] is holding out hope and that‘s why he wanted to meet up with Jennifer.
“She agreed to see him because they do have a lot of history and they also have some business dealings together.
“Alex really thinks they could make it work, but in Jen‘s mind, romantically and marriage-wise, it‘s over."
The ex-couple reportedly looked "close" during the "amicable" meetup last over the weekend, and a source told Page Six that “there still seemed to be love and respect there."
According to an insider close to Jennifer, the public breakup statement was necessary in her mind to close the deal.
The source told PEOPLE: "She insisted on it. There are too many issues that are unresolved.
"She has been pretty miserable, and didn't think it was in her best interests to stay with Alex."
The Selena star allegedly "didn't trust" Alex after various rumors surfaced that he was cheating with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy.
The insider went on to clarify that "whether or not he has cheated doesn't matter. She won't tolerate the fear of it in the air between them."
