Has Jennifer Lopez been pressuring Alex Rodriguez to propose? One of this week's tabloids claims the singer is eager to get married and keeps letting her boyfriend know it. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.
Lopez's new single "El Anillo," Spanish for "The Ring," contains the lyric, "I have it all, but where's the ring?" and features many references to baseball. Lopez admitted in a recent Beats 1 interview that the song is about her relationship with Rodriguez, but she further explained that the song is also about "everything that's going on with women" in 2018.
When asked if she and Rodriguez are ready to get engaged, the singer said, "We're good right now. I'm not trying to rush into anything, I've done that before, to no avail." Lopez further indicated that she's letting her romance take its "natural course." Life & Style, however, is falsely claiming that the singer is practically begging her boyfriend to buy her a ring.
"J. Lo hasn't given A-Rod an ultimatum or anything, but she's letting him know that she's ready to walk down the aisle," a so-called "source" tells the magazine. "Whenever they walk past a jewelry store, she stops to look at rings and points out the ones she likes."
As the story goes, the former MLB star isn't opposed to getting married, but he's been dragging his feet a bit. "He and Jennifer have talked at great length about tying the knot, but it's getting to the stage where J. Lo is becoming impatient," says the seemingly nonexistent insider, who bizarrely refers to Lopez as both "Jennifer" and "J. Lo" in the same sentence. "She's starting to question whether her boyfriend is all talk and no action."
Of course, the tabloid's article completely contradicts what Lopez herself said during her Beats 1 interview in late April. The singer already confirmed she's not in a hurry to tie the knot, so the magazine's assertion that she's pressuring Rodriguez to propose clearly isn't true. The phony article seems to have been manufactured based solely on the singer's new track, but the song shouldn't be interpreted as an engagement plea, despite its title.
Additionally, Life & Style is hardly a reliable source when it comes to getting accurate news about the singer and former Yankee star's relationship. Last month, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Lopez was pregnant with Rodriguez's twins, but this latest article fails to mention any of that. It's just more lies from the consistently unreliable tabloid.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
