Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have had their relationship under a microscope ever since the world-famous singer and the former baseball slugger first started dating in 2017. They announced their engagement in March 2019, had their 2020 wedding postponed due to COVID-19, and now on April 15, 2021, the pair revealed in a joint statement that they have officially called it quits.
"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 to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support," they said to TODAY.
Every couple months it seems there's another fabulous pair and another dazzling engagement ring tossed in the bin, but celebrity relationships have been fleeting since the dawn of stardom. From nearly tying the knot to weddings you completely forgot, take a look at the brilliant flames that sizzled into silence.
