J-Lo and A-Rod are still J-Rod.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have said that reports of their split are inaccurate, and they are working things through.

A day earlier, multiple reports based on anonymous sources said the pop star-actor and the former baseball great had called off their two-year engagement. The couple started dating in early 2017.

“All the reports are inaccurate,” said the joint statement on Saturday “from Jennifer and Alex,” emailed to The Associated Press by representatives. “We are working through some things.”

The New York Post’s Page Six was the first to report that the pair had split.

The couple was given the nickname “J-Rod” three years ago after they landed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

An unnamed source told People magazine the pair never officially broke up, but had talked about it.

“They hit a rough patch,” the source said, adding that rumours linking A-Rod with a TV reality show star “had no bearing on the rough patch at all".

“She’s working in the Dominican Republic and he’s in Miami so it’s tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and Covid,” the source told People.

Lopez, who sang at US President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, said late last year the couple had postponed their wedding twice because of the pandemic.

She began her career as a dancer and a singer, and produced and starred in the 2019 movie Hustlers.

Rodriguez retired in 2016 after a 22-year career in which he hit 696 home runs, placing him fourth on Major League Baseball’s all-time home run list.
