It has been about a week since Jennifer Lopez and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez called off their engagement and relationship after 4 years of being together. Now, new details have emerged as far as how Lopez is being able to cope with the separation.
It turns out that Jennifer has a very familiar face in her corner. A close friend tells People, that Marc Anthony, Jlo’s ex-husband and father to the couple’s twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximilian David Muñiz, has been with Jennifer in the Dominican Republic as she currently is working on a movie there.
Jennifer and Marc have always been said to have a great relationship even after splitting up in 2011. They have been able to successfully co-parent their twins. That hasn’t stopped people though from believing that the couple didn’t still share tremendous feelings towards each other.

Back in 2016 while Anthony was still married to Shannon De Lima and Jlo was dating one of her backup dancers the couple shared a kiss at the Latin Grammys ceremony. The awkward situation started the reconciliation rumors that eventually led to Marc’s divorce from De Lima.

Amid rumors of the split the one common theme seemed to be that Jlo did not feel that she could “trust Alex”. While to this point there has been no full confirmation of an infidelity by Rodriguez, this is the same guy that said he never did steroids for years only to admit later to lying to everyone after he got caught.
The trust issues could have been coming from either side though. After all, Jennifer still is in the Dominican Republic with her ex. Definitely, it was going to be hard keeping the relationship going either way.
Even though the couple announced their breakup it seems that both of them are making an effort to help their kids through the separation. Lopez posted this picture on her Instagram story to celebrate the 13th birthday of Alex’s daughter Ella.
Coincidently it has been Jennifer’s kids who have certainly helped her through the tough time. As mentioned before her kids have come down to be with their mother in the Dominican Republic. A close friend of the family mentions that they are keeping her strong through the breakup mentioning,
“The kids have visited her and they make her the happiest,”
One thing is for certain Jlo is keeping busy amidst the breakup. After her career renaissance role in Hustlers, Jlo is back in the action-comedy scene with Shotgun Wedding. The project features Lopez as the lead role in the movie as well as a producer of the film.
Ryan Reynolds is also said to be involved in the production. Therefore, this really could be one of the wackiest movies that we see this year. Armie Hammer was cast in the male lead alongside Lopez, but he could drop out due to his recent personal issues.
