JLo and ARod spotted out for dinner after the singer ended their engagement because she 'couldn't trust him'
JENNIFER Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were reportedly spotted having dinner together this weekend.
The superstar exes – who confirmed last week that they're filing for divorce – were allegedly seen dining at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles on Friday.
It is the same lavish restaurant where Jennifer, 51, and Alex, 45, had their first date back in 2017.
The couple looked "close" during the "amicable" meetup, a source told Page Six.
“There still seemed to be love and respect there," the insider claimed.
It's unclear what the dinner was about, but the outlet reported that the exes are continuing to work on business projects together – although Jennifer if seemingly not involved in Alex's bid to own an NBA team.
Last week, Jennifer and Alex announced that they have parted ways after four years of dating.
"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," it read.
"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.
"Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support."
According to a source close to Jennifer it was she that put the final nail in the coffin by insisting the broke the news publicly.
A friend close to Jennifer revealed to PEOPLE: "She insisted on it. There are too many issues that are unresolved."
Sadly, Jennifer didn't fully "trust" Alex even before rumors began to swirl that he had cheated on her with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy.
"She has been pretty miserable," said the friend, adding "and didn't think it was in her best interests to stay with Alex."
However, the sources didn't confirm or deny that Alex cheated because "whether or not he has cheated doesn't matter. She won't tolerate the fear of it in the air between them."
Sadly, it's not just Jennifer and Alex that have to worry about their feelings, but they also have to worry about the kids.
Jennifer has two kids with Marc Anthony, twins Max and Emme, 13 and Alex has two daughters with Cynthia Scurtis, Ella and Natasha.
This sad news comes a few days after Jennifer was spotted without her engagement ring.
Following the break-up, ARod shared a sad Instagram story where he filmed over a shrine of their relationship while tagging his now ex.
Alex set the video to Coldplay's emotional ballad Fix You, filming the photos as Chris Martin sang, "Tears stream down your face."
Despite the rumors, Madison has stood by the fact that she and ARod never hooked up – although her co-stars say otherwise.
A follower commented on a snap of Madison enjoying a cocktail: “Mmmm Arod on his way girl get bags pack he coming for you."
But the Bravolebrity insisted: “I have a boyfriend!”
She had initially captioned the snap: “Let’s root for each other and watch each other grow.”
Following the split last week, Madison told Page Six: “I wish them the best.”
The couple got engaged in 2019 but pushed their wedding back twice because of the pandemic.
