Rodriguez has been flooding his timeline with posts about his job as a broadcaster for ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball”. He also recently posted about the Miami season opener for Fox Sports.  Another thing we noticed was there is no trace of Padgett on Rodriguez's IG page, all those fun curtsied photos and cute selfies are just gone, nowhere to be found.

Padgett also has no trace of A-Rod on her page. A lot of cute photos of her enjoying life and some from her fitness competitions, but none of her ex.

No one is overwhelmingly talking about the breakup but some comments on Padgett's latest IG post are indicating that she is moving on. “Enjoy!!! Life is too short!!” Said one friend. On an older photo of her time in Italy, a fan assumed that it was A-Rod’s hand in one of her photos and told Padgett to watch out.

“He loves to mess around on his women too. Thank goodness jlo was a woman with self-esteem and pride for herself.’
