The odd overlaps between the ex-lovers birthday parties, including locations caused a ruckus on social media, as speculations spread far and wide.

Since the pair broke up, fans have tried to keep up to date with their personal lives, and while it seems like the ex-lovers are happy in their respective relationships now, A-Rod may still be searching for ways to get Lopez back any way he can.

A-Rod Celebrated His Birthday In The Same Town As J. Lo
Lopez had her 52nd birthday celebration on a yacht in St. Tropez a few days before A-Rod did, so it’s safe to assume that the idea for the birthday outing first came from the singer.
Nevertheless, A-Rod also had an incredible birthday party on a slightly smaller yacht but had an incredible time in the process. At first, the former athlete and his friends who accompanied him went around Europe for a while, and mind-blowing photos from the scenes surfaced on social media.

Eventually, the crew landed at St. Tropez, where they had a swell time above water. One of the guests in attendance was an NFL reporter named Melanie Collins. A-Rod and Collins have sparked dating rumors in the past few weeks, but they maintained that they are not romantically involved with each other.
The pair were acquainted through mutual friends, and though they seem good together, they are not currently in a relationship. Well, that further compels fans to believe that Lopez’s ex-fiancé is still gunning for her.
Rodriguez Took Collins To The Same Stores Lopez Visited
It almost seems like A-Rod is keeping his relationship with Collins openly platonic, just so he can score another chance with Lopez.
Still on his birthday routine, the former baseball shortstop made it a date with Collins, as he took her through some very exciting places including some of the stores that Lopez visited during her personal birthday tour, which was beyond weird.
On one hand, A-Rod and Collins intensified their dating rumors, and on the other hand, he seemed like he was only using the NFL reporter to relive his past experiences with Lopez, and looking for ways to be with her again, even if it meant he could only do it from a distance.
Whatever his reasons were, Collins and A-Rod were had to miss on their non-date, as they were captured on camera sporting similar outfits.
When the news of Lopez and A-Rod breakup was confirmed to the public, fans were heartbroken and devastated. Although the couple did not go into the details of the failed relationship, fans hoped that they would find a way to get back together.
Shockingly, Lopez almost immediately starting stirring up dating rumors with her former partner, Ben Affleck. He was first spotted going in and out of Lopez’s on several occasions, and in a short while, they started going out on dates.
A source explained to Page Six that the former lovers were simply friends who were spending a lot of time together. In May 2021, the supposed couple spent a vacation week in Montana, and returned to Los Angeles on May 8.
Finally, a day after Lopez took her twins to see their dad, Marc Anthony, she returned to Affleck, and they were captured kissing each other during a dinner date. This ultimately removed the clause that they were just friends, and fans were psyched.
Rodriguez’s Thoughts On ‘Bennifer’
Since Bennifer went public with their romance, there has been speculations from fans and tabloids regarding A-Rod’s perception, and how he handled the news.
Some fans speculated that the former pro athlete was still in love with Lopez, and would do everything he can to get back with her. A tabloid also alleged that A-Rod wanted to exert his revenge on the new couple, thats why he is in constant communication with Affleck’s ex, Lindsay Shookus.
Nevertheless, this speculation turned out to be false as a source close to A-Rod noted that the duo have been good friends for years, and Bennifer’s relationship does not change that.
