The dulcet tones of Chris Martin singing "Fix You" can only go so far, as Alex Rodriguez
appears to have progressed to the petty phase of his breakup with Jennifer Lopez
According to Page Six, Rodriguez has rented a summer mansion in Bridgehampton, New York
, a stone's throw from Lopez's own residence in Water
Rodriguez posted a video of himself shooting
hoops outside his new Hamptons home on Instagram
over the weekend, which is only a three-minute drive from Lopez's house
, according to Page Six.
And if there was any doubt that Rodriguez was aware of how close his new mansion is to Lopez's, consider this: the two spent last summer together at her sprawling estate before calling it quits earlier this year.
Of course, the music
superstar has since rekindled her romance with Ben Affleck
after nearly two decades apart, with reports claiming that Rodriguez was “very surprised” by their reunion
But, just when you thought things couldn't get any uglier, Affleck was spotted at the birthday party of Lindsay Shookus, a longtime "Saturday Night Live
" producer and Affleck's ex-girlfriend, over the weekend.
Rodriguez is seen sitting next to Shookus in a video taken at the intimate backyard gathering. The two dated Affleck on and off for years before splitting up in 2019.
Shookus appears to be friendly with all parties involved, as she was seen at a cast dinner with Lopez and Rodriguez in 2019 before the “Hustlers” star hosted the late-night sketch show.
When asked if there are any sparks between Rodriguez and Shookus, a representative for the baseball
player told Page Six that "there is absolutely zero there," adding that "they've been friends
for 15 years."
However, as this truly wild summer of celebrity couplings and re-couplings has demonstrated, no one is safe from the celebrity chaos of 2021.
