Jennifer Lopez reportedly dumped Alex Rodriguez over his “friendship” with reality show star Madison LeCroy.
But the Yankee great is falling back on a Yogi Berra truism: “It ain’t over, ’til it’s over.”
Rodriquez, 45, has suggested that he and Lopez might still be an item after dating for two years and becoming engaged.
He put out the word in a social media post about moving “onward and upward.” and tagged the 51-year-old dancer, singer and actress.
LeCroy, 30, isn’t talking about the couple’s reported split. Most of the claims she is involved with the ex-Yankee are coming from her “friends.”
While LeCroy is playing coy about the scandal, the publicity hasn’t hurt. The semi-obscure reality star only has 479,000 Instagram followers. Lopez has 146 million.
Madison has also attracted a coterie paparazzi. But blew them off when they shouted questions at her, “simply shrugging and waving one hand dismissively,” according to London’s Daily Mail.
Tabloids may have jumped the gun on reporting the split.
Over the weekend, Lopez and Rodriguez released a statement saying the reports were “inaccurate” and they are “working through some things.”
Rodriguez also sounded a similar theme in an Instagram post of a video reportedly shot from his hotel in the Dominican Republic.
‘Happy Monday. New week. New day. Onward. Upward,” he wrote, tagging Lopez’s social media handle.
The couple was last photographed together in March. But Lopez’s next film, “Shotgun Wedding,” is being shot at the same hotel, according to gossip site TMZ.
Last week, the couple’s split was reported reported by multiple news outlets, including Page Six and CNN.
Supposedly “close sources” said the relationship had been on the rocks for some time. Page Six named the “Southern Charm” star, but it’s not like the tabloid hasn’t been wrong in the past.
LeCroy added fuel to the fire herself when she revealed on Andy Cohen’s show that she had been in “contact” with an ex-baseball player. She said they had been DM-ing.
She was accused of sleeping with the player on the show but denied it. In fact, she said she has never met Rodriguez personally. She insisted they weren’t sexting.
LeCroy later told Page Six their communication was “innocent.”
“That’s the truth,” the reality star claimed. She said they had “never been physical… never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”
She called their phone calls “inconsistent” and “random,” but declined to say what they discussed.
“Southern Charm” is another in a string of Bravo reality shows. It features seven “socialites who live in the historic resort town of Charleston, South Carolina.
The show reportedly about “Southern culture and political history,” but actually focuses on the same catfights, dating and relationships of the show’s personalities.
Before landing on the show LeCroy was a hair stylist. She has since become a series regular with Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle.
LeCroy has been dating show member Austen Kroll, who was added to the cast in Season Four. But they broke up during the current season.
