A month after denying initial reports that they had called off their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez officially declared the end of their relationship on April 15. Days earlier, eyebrows were raised when Lopez, 51, posted a picture of herself noticeably not wearing her engagement ring on the Dominican Republic set of her film Shotgun Wedding. Days later, Rodriguez struck a more nostalgic tone, tagging Lopez in a blue heart emoji when he posted a clip to his Instagram Stories showing off a table laden with loved-up photos, as Coldplay’s melancholy hit ‘Fix You’ played in the background.
