Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez finally end their engagement
Earlier, E! News had reported that the Hollywood couple had called off their nearly two-year-old engagement.
Fans of the couple were shocked by the news as the couple spent Valentine’s Day together and also attended the Super Bowl in Miami in February.
The pair while giving an update on the reported split in an earlier statement provided to Reuters, dismissed the reports adding that they were working out something together.
On Thursday, however, the celebrity couple in a joint statement to NBC’s ‘TODAY’, confirmed their split.
According to the couple, they realized they were better as friends and pledged to keep supporting each other even after the split.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so.
We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects.
“We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support,” the statement said.
