UPDATED: How Legit Are The Rumors That A-Rod Cheated On J.Lo?

UPDATE: In a move that honestly surprised me, Jennifer Lopez decided to address the cheating rumors publicly this week. On Wednesday, J.Lo went on The Breakfast Club, where she responded Jose Canseco, and everyone else saying A-Rod cheated on her: “”I mean, it doesn’t matter, I know what the truth is. I know who [Alex] is. He knows who I am. We’re just happy.” While she didn’t outright say that there was no cheating, she made it clear that her relationship isn’t affected by the rumors.

After addressing the infidelity rumors, she went on to say some pretty great things about her relationship with Alex: “I’ve never been with somebody who lets me be the ‘full shine J.Lo’ and all the sides of me, that makes me really happy…he’s like, ‘Just go baby, just go.'” Honestly, considering all the high-profile relationships J.Lo has been a part of, it’s so nice to hear that she feels better than ever. She looks incredible, and she’s clearly doing great on the inside, too.

Going back to the cheating rumors, Jose Canseco’s accusations aren’t looking to0 credible. His ex-wife Jessica, who supposedly slept with A-Rod, vehemently denied the rumors, and said that she is friendly with both Alex and Jennifer. I’m currently breathing some deep sighs of relief, because I need this couple to be okay.

March 11: In my mind, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have seemed like the perfect couple ever since they got together. They’re both sexy, they’re around the same age, and they both have adorable kids from previous marriages. I was excited to see them finally get engaged this weekend, because it really just feels like they were meant to find each other. Also, that ring is f*cking stunning, obviously. But, because we really just can’t have nice things, there might already be trouble in paradise. There are new rumors that A-Rod has cheated on J.Lo, but what do we really know?

The source of these rumors is Jose Canseco, who was also a majorly successful baseball player. If you’re not a big sports fan, Jose Canseco stopped playing baseball in 2001, and is pretty infamous for being involved with steroids. He admitted to using the drugs in 2005, and claimed that 85% of pro baseball players were using them. This was obviously controversial, and his reputation isn’t the best because of it. Okay, now I’m done done pretending to care about baseball, so let’s talk about the rumors.

Canseco is saying that A-Rod cheated on J.Lo with his ex-wife, Jessica Canseco. I hate this already. I’m not really sure why Jose is getting involved, other than being thirsty for attention, but he took to Twitter on Sunday night with lots of thoughts.

Jose started off with “Watching World of Dance watching J.Lo text Alex Rodriguez little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica poor girl she has no idea who he really is.” This tweet is a wild ride, and not just because of the total lack of punctuation. Honestly, I don’t doubt that this could be true, because if Jay-Z cheated on Beyoncé and Future cheated on Ciara, anything is possible, but can we not refer to Jennifer Lopez as “poor girl”? She’s almost 50 years old, cut it out with that infantilizing bullsh*t. But yeah, Jose also said he was with his ex when A-Rod called her, and he also literally tweeted “Alex Rodriguez stop being a piece of shit stop cheating on Jennifer Lopez.”  Lol, this dude is gonna get destroyed in his DMs.

Never have my eyes rolled harder than reading this tweet: “Alex Rodriguez I challenge you to a boxing match or an MMA match anytime you want.” K. Definitely not thirsting for fame, bud. Literally nobody cares to see this fictional match. Hey @ straight men, can you please not?

Jose must have sensed some skepticism after hurling these accusations out with absolutely no evidence, so he then upped the ante by offering to take a lie detector test. “I am willing to take a polygraph to prove that what I’m saying about Alex Rodriguez is 100% accurate.” Oh Jose, haven’t you ever seen an episode of SVU? Polygraphs are not admissible in court of law, my dude! It’s a nice gesture, but that is not going to convince anyone of 100% accuracy.

Okay, so all of these steroid rage-induced tweets have left me with a lot of questions, and more than a little bit of doubt. But as our luck would have it, our favorite celebrity gossip source has officially weighed in on the rumors. This morning, Crazy Days and Nights posted a new blind gossip item that can really only be about one thing:

“I have been telling you for forever that this former A+ list athlete has been cheating on his A list everything in her mind significant other with a variety of people,” Enty writes. “Last night, one of those many people was brought into the light. Probably not good timing with that life event announcement.” This is about as close to confirmation as we’ll get for the time being.

God bless Enty, forever lighting up our lives. Obviously, all of this is still alleged and we don’t have a lot of evidence to go on, but these blind items usually turn out to be true. Only time will tell, but now I unfortunately have some mixed feelings about this engagement.

What are your thoughts on A-Rod and J.Lo’s engagement, and the ensuing cheating rumors? Can Jose Canseco be trusted? All of this is taking years off my life right now, and it’s still Monday morning. Gonna be a great week!
