The former couple released a joint statement about the break. “We have realized that we are better off as friends,” he said. “We look forward to staying friends as well. We will continue to work together on our shared causes and projects, and support each other. We wish our children well. Best of all. Out of respect for our children, this is all we want to say: thank you to everyone who sent nice words and support in our direction. ”
A few weeks ago it was already leaked that Jennifer and Alex would be separated. The reason for the break would be busy schedules, and the rumor that Alex had made it a bit too cozy with reality star Madison LeCroy. But both the singer and the former football player denied in all languages that they were apart. They did indicate that they were working on their relationship. Before that, Alex flew to the Dominican Republic, where Jennifer was shooting a new film. But clearly to no avail.
Alex and Jennifer first confirmed their relationship in March 2017. Two years later they became engaged in the Bahamas. However, it never came to a marriage. Jennifer has two children, Max and Emme (both 13), from a previous marriage to Marc Anthony. Alex also has two daughters, Natasha (16) and Ella (12), from his marriage to Cynthia Scurtis.
