Former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez continue to be #relationshipgoals, after over a year together, but his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis apparently isn’t a fan. Radar Online is reporting that Scurtis made “disparaging remarks” about Lopez after claiming Rodriguez threatened to cut the child support payments he makes for their two daughters.
This all comes from a civil lawsuit brought against Rodriguez by Scurtis’ brother Constantine. The 42-year-old baseball legend and Constantine started a real estate company together back in 2003, but a decade later, Rodriguez’s former brother-in-law sued him for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, civil conspiracy, and unjust enrichment.
According to Constantine’s attorney, Joel Denaro, Rodriguez’s lawyer Alan Kluger told Cynthia “that he had possession of communications in which [Cynthia] allegedly made disparaging remarks about Rodriguez’s current girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez.” But, we don’t know exactly what it is Cynthia supposedly said.
Cynthia’s father also revealed that Rodriguez wants to cut child support payments because he isn’t making as much money now as he did when he was playing baseball. Kluger allegedly sent a letter to Denaro to let him know Rodriguez wanted to make changes to the payment. But, A. Rod has denied those claims and says he has always paid child support.
Meanwhile, Lopez and Rodriguez continue to live their “incredibly wonderful” life together by spending Fourth of July on the beach. They documented their holiday on Instagram with a pic of her in a neon pink swimsuit laying on a shirtless Rodriguez.
Fans quickly noticed that Lopez is wearing a ring on THAT finger in the photo, and this immediately caused people to start asking if the couple was engaged. But, the ring was just a simple gold piece, and it could just be something from her own jewelry collection.
Lopez also shared some Polaroids on her Instagram Stories featuring Emme and Max – her 10-year-old twins she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. And, Rodriguez posted a video of the four of them riding around on bicycles, plus a solo pic of J. Lo.
The holiday party continued in another video of Rodriguez lip syncing to I’ve Had the Time Of My Life from Dirty Dancing, Africa by Toto, and Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow while he and Lopez ride around with the top down in Bridgehampton, New York.
The Let’s Get Loud singer also enjoyed dancing with some sparklers to wrap up the holiday.
Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have not commented on the engagement rumors.
