Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are not planning a destination wedding in Mexico, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the story. We’re told it’s simply untrue.
According to OK!, the singer is busy planning “the ultimate A-list wedding” to her boyfriend of two years. A supposed source tells the magazine, “She’s a woman who knows what she wants – and she wants everything to be perfect. Alex had made it clear he doesn’t see his future without her, so she sees nothing wrong with getting started on her checklist. She’s picking out napkins already!”
The outlet further contends that Lopez wants her wedding to coincide with her 50th birthday in July. The ceremony will be complete with “a world-class chef and entertainment, lavish flowers and a lot of extravagant personal touches,” says the alleged insider. “She loves getting people talking and being the center of attention. You can bet her wedding will reflect that.”
None of this is accurate. Gossip Cop reached out to a rep for Rodriguez, who tells us on the record that the tabloid’s report is false. Despite what the outlet’s anonymous and untraceable “insider” claims, the former Yankee star’s spokesperson confirms he’s not getting married in Mexico this summer.
Gossip Cop also reached out to a source close to the singer, who points out that Lopez will be on her It’s My Party concert tour throughout July. Lopez, whose 50th birthday falls on July 24, has a show in Orlando on the 23rd and one in Miami on the 26th. The idea that she’ll be flying to Mexico for a giant wedding during the two days she has off is illogical. She’ll presumably be celebrating her birthday somewhere in Florida, and the occasion won’t double as a wedding.
It’s worth noting, Lopez said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” just a few months ago that she doesn’t know if she’ll get engaged to Rodriguez anytime soon, but they’re “very happy” together. Meanwhile, Gossip Cop busted OK! back in September 2017 for wrongly reporting that Lopez and Rodriguez were planning a wedding in the Hamptons. That obviously never panned out.
Last July, Gossip Cop called out the tabloid for falsely claiming Lopez was pregnant with Rodriguez’s baby. Naturally, that wasn’t the case. The unreliable publication clearly has no insight into the couple’s relationship, so it makes up stories about them instead. This latest article surrounding a nonexistent destination wedding is another example.
