According to reports in the new issue of Us Weekly, while Jennifer Lopez has moved on, Alex Rodriguez is still reeling from their breakup. The athlete is unable to understand how easily J. Lo reunited with Ben Affleck, according to sources.

After her relationship to Alex Rodriguez ended in March, followers of “Bennifer” were definitely surprised to see pictures of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez spending time together in recent weeks.

Rodriguez, whose ex-girlfriends include Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, began dating Lopez, 51, in 2017 and the two were engaged for two years before splitting in mid-April.

According to the source, “A-Rod is shocked that J.Lo has moved on.” “He truly thought they would be able to make it work and reconnect. He has been reaching out to J.Lo trying to meet with her and she has been very short with him.

Rodriguez’s response to Affleck and Lopez sharing time together 17 years after they broke off their own engagement in 2004 is, “It definitely hurt his ego,” the source says.

The insider says of A-Rod, “Seeing her running straight back to Ben’s arms is a real kick in the teeth.” “There’s a part of him that still clings onto the hope that they’ll wind up together again but deep down he’s had to accept the harsh truth that she’s over him and moving on with Ben. It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality.”

Alex is “saddened” by J.Lo’s reunion with the Justice League actor, according to the source, and has reached out to her to let her know “he’s upset.”

“She’s not interested in rekindling anything with A-Rod and is done.” the source said.

“[Alex] was under the impression that he and Jennifer would go on as friends, but he is acting so needy that Jennifer cut him off,” the source says of Rodriguez, who recently told photographers

Lopez and Affleck reconnected on the internet, according to reports.

The Batman V Superman star and Jennifer were pictured together at the end of the month. Ben was pictured being picked up and dropped off at the Los Angeles home of J.Lo Beauty creator Jennifer Lopez. A separate source explained at the time that they were “just friends.”

“Jennifer seems very happy. She tried for a long time to get her relationship with Alex to work. She feels good that she decided to break it off. She just doesn’t trust him and didn’t want to waste any more time,” the source concludes.

“Jen got back in touch with Ben after it became apparent to her that things with Alex weren’t working anymore,” the insider explains to Us. “They’d already sounded each other out about it from afar, like, when Ben heaped praise on Jen in interviews. [Meanwhile] she made it very plain to their mutual friends that she was open to getting back in touch.”

According to a second source close to J.Lo, their weeklong reunion allowed them to “see where this could lead.”

Lopez and Rodriguez, who were engaged in March 2019 after two years of dating, released a joint statement in April confirming their split. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. 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 is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support,” their statement read.

“She wants to give it a shot with Ben,” the insider puts it simply. “They never really had closure and she has always wondered what could have been. The timing was never right and they were in different places until now.”
