The romance of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez practically seems predestined. Both are native New Yorkers - she's from the Bronx; he's from Washington Heights. Each is a certifiable superstar in their field - she's a multihyphenate singer/dancer/actress/businesswoman; he's one of the most famous shortstops/third basemen of all time. They even had a few chance, pre-relationship meetings that, in retrospect, make it seem as if the universe has been pushing them together for decades.
Neither Lopez nor Rodriguez are strangers to high-profile romance. J. Lo has had many tabloid-ready relationships, including attachments to Sean "Diddy" Combs, Marc Anthony, and Ben Affleck. A. Rod was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis, with whom he has two children. He was rumored to have been involved with Madonna, though both have denied the allegations.
