Did Jennifer Lopez really tell Alex Rodriguez she wants “a breather” from him? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which says the singer is getting tired of spending so much time with her boyfriend. But Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.
A so-called “source” tells Star, “Jennifer and Alex have gotten to the point of their relationship where they can get enough of each other. They’ve been joined at the hip and it’s become a bit suffocating. Jennifer hasn’t seen her girlfriends in weeks and her kids [9-year-old twins Max and Emme] are getting less and less one-on-one time.” The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to say Rodriguez “totally understood where she was coming from” when his girlfriend supposedly requested they spend some time apart, adding, “A break will do them a lot of good in the long term.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Lopez doesn’t feel smothered by her boyfriend, nor has she suggested they give each other more space. We’re told the tabloid’s story is simply fabricated and a non-issue. Of course, Star has published an incessant amount of inaccurate stories about the couple since they started dating earlier this year, so we’re not surprised by this latest phony article.
Gossip Cop just recently called out the magazine for making up a story about Lopez and Rodriguez getting plastic surgery together. Shortly before that piece of fiction, we busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Lopez was rearranging her schedule so she can keep an eye on her boyfriend. The outlet has proven to know very little about the famous couple’s relationship, and this latest bogus article is further proof of that.
