Alex Rodriguez reportedly has sad relationship news

Love didn’t come easy to Alex Rodriguez. The baseball legend split from his first wife Cynthia Scrutis in 2008. A few years later, he began dating Jennifer Lopez. It seemed like a match made in heaven — at least for a while. Rodriguez and Lopez dated for more than four years, but during that time they were plagued by rumors of Rodriguez’s infidelity and forced to cancel their wedding twice due to COVID-19.

Rumors that Rodriguez was having an affair with a Bravo reality star, Madison LeCroy, were reportedly the final straw for Lopez. “The only reason they stayed together despite previous allegations is because her kids really like Alex and she doesn’t want them to suffer,” a source told The Sun just before Rodriguez and Lopez announced their split. “But her kids are getting old enough to see and hear what’s going on, and the last thing she wants is for them to read allegations about him online.” Lopez unplugged and sought solace from her former fiancé Ben Affleck. Rodriguez, meanwhile, spent the next few months posting anxious Instagram Stories about the split.

Flashing back to 2022, when Lopez married Affleck, and it seemed like Rodriguez had finally moved on with a fitness influencer named Katheryn Padgett. However, according to recent reports, things are not going well for the new couple.

A-Rod continues after Jennifer Lopez

While his ex, Jennifer Lopez, rides off into the sunset with her new husband, Alex Rodriguez finds himself single once again. The baseball legend reportedly split from his girlfriend of almost a year, Kathryne Padgett, in September. According to insiders, the baseball legend and the more than 20-year-old fitness influencer were never intended for the long haul anyway. “Kathryne is a great girl but they don’t mean it,” a source told Page Six months before the split. “They’re just together. They’re having fun, that’s it.”

While the breakup comes just weeks after Lopez and Ben Affleck said “yes,” Rodriguez doesn’t mind. “Alex is having fun and hanging out with his family,” a source said. As for Lopez and her failed engagement, Rodriguez reportedly wishes her the best. “He’s happy for her and happy that she’s with the person she’s supposed to be with,” a source told Us Weekly. “[His] relationship [with Jennifer] ended a while ago – he’s made peace with the way things ended.

However, it wouldn’t be an A-Rod breakup if he didn’t post something moody on social media. Hours after news of his split from Padgett broke, Rodriguez took to his Instagram Story to share his single husband’s steak dinner. “Dinner for one,” he wrote. Still, sources insist he’s doing great, according to Page Six. “They’re good friends — they’re just all single. They broke up, but they’re super tight. Everything is good.”
