Alex Rodriguez did not tell Jennifer Lopez to stop being so controlling, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct the story. There's simply no truth to it.

According to In Touch, Lopez has been treating her fiance "like one of her minions" and he's getting sick of it. "She knows she has control issues, but that's just how she rolls," an alleged source tells the outlet. "Everything in her world has to be J. Lo-approved."

The supposed insider goes on to say that Lopez is the one who decides "when and where they vacation, what they wear, where they go to dinner, what they eat, when and what they get done at the spa... the list goes on and on." The questionable tipster also maintains that the singer wants the former MLB star to run his social media comments by her before posting them. "He told her that he loves her, but she has to back off a bit," adds the source.

Gossip Cop checked in with an individual in Rodriguez's camp, who laughed off the magazine's bogus report. We're told the former Yankee doesn't find his fiancee to be too controlling, and the claim otherwise is baseless. The couple's relationship has been going strong since early 2017 and they're preparing to walk down the aisle together. The idea that Rodriguez plans to marry a woman who he finds too overbearing doesn't make much sense.

Additionally, In Touch has already proven to know very little about the couple's relationship. Last August, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming Lopez and Rodriguez were getting married in Italy and having a baby. The couple didn't get engaged until several months after we debunked the story, and they're still not expecting a child together.

Back in June 2017, Gossip Cop called out the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Rodriguez had proposed to Lopez during a trip to Paris, and they were in the process of planning a wedding in France. As time has proven, the proposal wouldn't come until nearly two years later. Lopez has also noted in recent interviews that they haven't decided their wedding plans just yet.

As for this notion that the singer is "controlling," the magazine tried to sell a similar premise back in March by alleging Lopez was forcing Rodriguez to sign a prenup with a cheating clause. When the tabloid isn't busy inventing weddings and babies, it's trying to create nonexistent problems between the couple.
