Are Alex Rodriguez’s neighbors upset with him and Jennifer Lopez constantly hogging the gym of his New York City apartment building? That’s the claim in one of this week’s tabloids, but Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.
According to OK!, the singer and MLB player have been treating his building’s fitness center as their own private facility, and the other tenants are getting annoyed. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “The gym is supposed to be for all the residents, but they’re turning it into their own production. They swarm the place with their staff and easily spend two to three hours there a day.”
The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “And they do this at prime time, early in the morning when everyone else wants to work out. Jen’s security actually has the nerve to stand at the door like bouncers asking people to show ID before coming inside.” As opposed to the tabloid’s untraceable “source,” Gossip Cop is told by Rodriguez’s own rep that he doesn’t even use the gym at his Manhattan residence. In fact, Rodriguez and Lopez have often been spotted hitting public gyms in New York City. Regardless, we’re assured there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s tale.
The couple is very into fitness and often document their joint workouts on social media, which might be why the unreliable magazine decided to concoct this phony story. Unfortunately, Gossip Cop constantly has to call out OK! for printing fake news about the couple’s relationship. We recently busted the publication for wrongly reporting that Lopez and Rodriguez were “taking a break.” Shortly before that, the magazine published a contradictory article falsely claiming that Lopez and Rodriguez were planing a New Year’s Eve wedding in Miami. Maybe the tabloid should spend less time spreading untrue stories about the couple’s workouts and more time working on their own fact-checking.
