Alex Rodriguez Breaks Silence on His EX Jennifer Lopez Following Her Wedding to Ben Affleck

The one that got away.

The former Yankees slugger has broken his silence on the marriage of his ex Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. While appearing on CNN’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, the current MLB broadcaster spoke on the relationship months after Lopez and Affleck tied the knot in Las Vegas.

“With Jennifer, look, it was a good experience,” Rodriguez said, per Us Weekly. “I wish her and the children — who are smart, and beautiful and wonderful — I wish them the very best.” Rodriguez then joked, “I would say I’m glad I’m not going to ever be a presidential candidate because you would hammer me.”

Rodriguez previously opened up about his history with the “On the Floor” performer during a candid interview on “The Martha Stewart Podcast” shortly before her Vegas wedding.

“Here’s what I will tell you about Jennifer, and I was telling some of my colleagues here the other day, she’s the most talented human being I’ve ever been around,” he gushed in July, adding that the former couple always “had a great time” together. “Hardest worker. And I think she is the greatest performer, live performer in the world today that’s alive.” Via Us Weekly.

Rodriguez and Lopez got engaged back in 2019 following two years of courtship. The couple then called things off in April 2021.

“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” Lopez and the World Series champion noted in a joint statement at the time. “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.”

Rodriguez was romantically linked to Kathryne Padgett but according to US Weekly, the couple split in June after less than a year of dating.

Single A-Rod is back.
