Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez went engagement ring shopping earlier this month, according to one of this week’s tabloids. But Gossip Cop has learned the claim is inaccurate. A Lopez confidante tells us it’s “not true.”
Life & Style, which has published an embarrassing number of provably untrue stories about Rodriguez and Lopez, now maintains the former baseball player took the singer to Cartier in Miami on November 2 to help find the right engagement ring. A so-called “source” is quoted by the magazine as saying Lopez joined Rodriguez at the high-end jewelry store because “he’s terrified of picking out the wrong ring.” The same unidentified tipster asserts Lopez is “incredibly picky” when it comes to her bling, most especially her “engagement rings,” which have to be “flawless.”
And that’s pretty much the extent of the article’s reporting. It fills the rest of its piece out with how Lopez has been engaged a handful of times, and that she released a song in April titled “El Anillo,” which means “The Ring.” Glaringly, however, the tabloid has no proof whatsoever that Rodriguez recently bought her an engagement ring.
While the publication put price tags (albeit wrong) on rings Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony gave the singer, it doesn’t offer any details about how much or the cut of the diamond Rodriguez allegedly chose for a “picky” Lopez. Simply, it’s because they didn’t go engagement ring shopping that day at Cartier. A source close to Lopez assures us on the condition of anonymity that the magazine’s story is “not true.”
As noted above, that hardly surprises Gossip Cop, which has repeatedly exposed the tabloid for printing falsehoods about the couple. In March 2017, for example, we busted the outlet for its cover story that exclaimed, “J. Lo & A-Rod: Wedding & A Baby!” In that obviously wrong report, the outlet contended its supposed “source” had learned they were going to “be married by the summer [of 2017]” on a beach in Cuba and “adopt [a baby] from Puerto Rico, where she has family, or the Dominican Republic, where Alex’s family is from.”
Two months after that disastrous article, Gossip Cop corrected the magazine after it splashed on yet another cover how Lopez was pregnant with Rodriguez’s baby boy. In that misfire, another one of the tabloid’s alleged sources claimed shortly after Lopez found out she was expecting a “miracle baby,” she began designing a baseball-themed nursery. The seemingly made-up insider noted Lopez decided “their wedding can wait,” and while she was “not showing yet,” she was “super excited about having [Rodriguez’s] son.”
This past April, Gossip Cop nailed the outlet again when it incorrectly asserted on another cover that Lopez was pregnant and expecting twins with Rodriguez. Once more, the tabloid had no legitimate evidence to support it bogus narrative. Much like its past articles about Lopez, the latest one about her and Rodriguez recently shopping for a diamond doesn’t ring true either.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
