Since becoming an item in 2017, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have become one of the most famous power couples around. However, the former New York Yankees baseball player had plenty of relationships, flings, and rumored flings, before J.Lo.
Cynthia Scurtis (m.2002-2008)
Long before the days of J-Rod, A-Rod was married to a woman named Cynthia Scurtis. The MLB star first met the Coconut Grove, Florida native and psychology graduate at a gym in Miami, and it didn’t take long until they got hitched in 2002.
Unfortunately, things didn’t end well for the pair, as Scurtis ended up filing for divorce six years later, citing ’emotional abandonment’ of her and their children, Natasha and Ella. She also accused him of marital misconduct, stating that his frequent affairs was what ultimately ‘broke’ their marriage.
Cynthia Scurtis – Now
More than a decade has passed since Scurtis and A-Rod’s divorce, and it seems as if the exes have no hard feelings for one another. Following news of his and J-Lo’s engagement, Scurtis even spoke out saying that she was “happy” for the couple.
Scurtis has moved on herself as well, and is now enjoying a life out of the spotlight with real estate advisor Angel Nicolas, with whom she shares a toddler named Camilla.
A-Rod and Scurtis’ divorce happened so quickly, that it didn’t take long until rumors began to surface linking the baseball player with another woman, Madonna. Whispers started spreading after the pop icon – who was married to Guy Ritchie at the time – was seen sitting in Alex’s seats at Yankee Stadium.
The MLB star was reportedly spotted leaving the singer’s Central Park West apartment late at night on more than one occasion. Madonna later denied the rumors, releasing a statement saying, “I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez.”
Madonna – Now
Following the allegations between Madonna and A-Rod, the pop star and her second husband of eight years, Guy Ritchie, got a divorce. Since then, Madonna has been focusing on her music and being a mom to her six children.
The 61-year-old has also has been rumored to be dating a 25-year-old dancer named Ahlamalik Williams. The two reportedly met back in 2015, when he performed on her Rebel Heart Tour, and have since been spotted looking awfully close on numerous occasions. Williams also has been working with her on her current tour, Madame X.
Bethenny Frankel (2009)
In 2009, rumors swirled that A-Rod and Bethenny Frankel were an item after they were spotted out together. The Real Housewives of New York City star later revealed that she did indeed date the baseball player, just not for very long.
On What Watch Happens Live she told Andy Cohen that she and Alex “went on two dates” and when asked if he was a good kisser or not she confessed that she actually “doesn’t remember.”
Bethenny Frankel – Now
Frankel has had some interesting jobs in the past, including as a nanny to Paris Hilton and a production assistant for Saved by the Bell. Over the years she has become most famous, of course, for her long-time role on the Bravo reality series The Real Housewives of New York City.
Since separating from her second husband Jason Hoppy in 2016, the mom-of-one has found happiness with film producer Paul Bernon, who she has been dating for over a year.
Cameron Diaz (2010-2011)
During the summer of 2010 Cameron Diaz and A-Rod became an official item. During the first year that they dated, the couple managed to keep things between them private, even avoiding each other when at the same party.
Of course, the 2011 Super Bowl changed all that when Diaz was infamously caught on camera ‘feeding’ A-Rod a piece of popcorn. A few months later, Cam-Rod was over after what seemed like an amicable split that had to do with their hectic schedules.
Cameron Diaz – Now
Since breaking our hearts by retiring from acting in 2014, Diaz seems to be doing better than ever. In 2015, the In Her Shoes star tied the knot with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, who she felt a spark with during a dinner party thrown by Nicole Richie and Benji’s twin brother, Joel Madden in 2014.
The couple has been going strong ever since and they just recently welcomed their first kid together, a daughter named Raddix, in January, 2020.
Demi Moore (2012)
In July 2012, more rumors about A-Rod’s romantic life went spiraling out of control after he was spotted having dinner a few times with Demi Moore.
The Ghost actress reportedly brought a stray cat to a party he was having at his house later that year, while she was dating art dealer Vito Schnabel and him Torrie Wilson. To this day, Moore claims that she and Alex never had anything romantic going on, and that they were never more than just friends.
Demi Moore – Now
Demi Moore may have had a tough past decade since her highly-publicized divorce with third husband Ashton Kutcher in 2013, but she seems to be back on track focusing on herself, her career, and her family.
In 2019, Moore released her first book, a memoir titled Inside Out in which she opened up about her childhood, famous past relationships, setbacks, and scrutiny for her career. The mom-of-three is also planning on starring in an upcoming sci-fi dystopian drama series titled Brave New World, based on the Aldous Huxley novel.
Ella Magers (2011)
A-Rod met Ella Magers, a bodybuilder and fitness trainer in Miami during October 2011. At first, things seemed to be pretty serious between the two, making public appearances here and there and even vacationing with his two daughters.
Due to their common interest in health and fitness, it seemed like the couple were going to be around for a while. However, not before long, Magers seemed to have disappeared from Alex’s life and it became clear that their romance had fizzled to an end.
Ella Magers – Now
Since her fling with A-Rod, Magers has been taking over the fitness industry with her own vegan lifestyle brand. The certified fitness trainer, wellness coach, and muay thai practitioner has dedicated her life inspiring others to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle by using a plant-based diet.
On her website, she offers her clients training videos, workshops, recipes, and programs for those who want to wish to “build a plant-strong body and mind for life.”
Anne Wojcicki (2016-2017)
The woman who came before J.Lo was Anne Wojcicki, who began dating A-Rod around March 2016. Wajcicki, a billionaire Silicon Valley CEO who was formerly married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin, made her first public appearance with the former MLB star just two months later at the Met Gala.
Although it seemed like things were getting pretty serious, they broke up after less than a year, with sources claiming it had something to do with their “very different backgrounds.”
Anne Wojcicki – Now
These days, Wojcicki has been keeping busy to say the least. She is the cofounder and CEO of 23andMe, a pioneering direct-to-consumer firm for DNA testing based in Sunnyvale, California. She was also just named The Pioneer on Marie Claire’s 25 Women Changing the Future list.
To top all that, the successful businesswoman and single mom recently welcomed her third child in 2019, and is constantly promoting the importance of having a work-life balance as a working parent.
Kate Hudson (2009)
By 2009, Alex was romantically linked with another famous woman, this time Kate Hudson. The Yankees star and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress confirmed their relationship with a very public kiss at a postgame stadium picnic, after she had been cheering him on in the front row of course.
In the end, it just didn’t work out, and the couple called it quits in December 2009 after just seven months of dating. There were even rumors that Hudson left him after he refused to stop calling ex-rumored flame Madonna.
Kate Hudson – Now
Kate Hudson ended up being just fine post A-Rod, and has been dating musician and actor Danny Fujikawa since 2016. The couple welcomed their first child together – and Hudson’s third – in October 2018, and they seem to be happier than ever.
While we haven’t been seeing much of her on-screen, she has been proving herself as a successful businesswoman behind-the-scenes with her popular ath-leisure clothing brand, Fabletics – which she cofounded. She started the line of athletic clothing in 2013, and it is now said to be worth around $250 million.
Torrie Wilson (2011-2015)
One of Alex’s longest relationships besides his ex-wife and J.Lo was with Torrie Wilson, who he dated for a little over three years from 2011 to 2015. In public, everything seemed to be going well between the third baseman and the former WWE Diva, but eventually what ended things was A-Rod’s inability to commit.
Apparently, Wilson was ready for the next step and Alex still couldn’t stop flirting with other women. Many sources claimed his closeness with his ex-wife also played a role in their breakup.
Torrie Wilson – Now
In 2019, nearly a decade after retiring from wrestling in 2008 due to a back injury, Wilson was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Of course, the honor shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to fans, seeing as she was one of the top women in WWE back in the 2000s.
Nowadays, Wilson is still dedicating her life to fitness, and often shares workout tips and exercises with her million followers on Instagram.
Julianne Hough (2013)
Although A-Rod and Julianne Hough were never really an item, plenty of sources have claimed that he was really into the Dancing with the Stars dancer-turned-actress back in 2013, but was ultimately rejected.
Some sources even reported that Hough did go out with A-Rod for a couple dates but only in order to make her ex-boyfriend of three years, Ryan Seacrest, jealous. Of course, these are only rumors – we may never know what actually went down between them.
Julianne Hough – Now
Over the years, Hough has certainly proved herself as a true triple threat. Not only is the Emmy-winner an incredible dancer and choreographer, she has also shown off her acting and singing abilities in movie musicals like 2011’s Footloose and 2012’s Rock of Ages.
She also has starred in more dramatic roles such as the female lead in the film adaptation of Nicolas Sparks’ Safe Haven. She also was a judge on America’s Got Talent. In 2017, Hough got married to NHL player Brooke Laich.
Melissa Britos (2009)
Shortly after his divorce with Scurtis, A-Rod had a fling with Miami-based model Melissa Britos. Rumors flew around the couple after they were spotted having a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner together at a ritzy Italian restaurant in Miami Beach.
While it was never exactly clear what happened between the two, reports claimed that it had to do with A-Rod, still fresh from a six-year marriage and divorce, wasn’t looking for anything too serious – and that was the end of that.
Melissa Britos – Now
Since her scandalous relationship with Alex that happened over a decade ago, Britos has been staying out of the lime light and maintaining a semi private life away from the tabloids and paparazzi.
While she is still working as a model for Wilhelmina agency in NY and Miami according to her Instagram, she now has a new job – as a mom to five children! The model is frequently sharing photos on social media of her and her beautiful family-of-seven.
Elaine Spottswood (2010)
Not long after his relationship with Kate Hudson, A-Rod reportedly started dating model Elaine Spottswood, who apparently went to the same gym as him in Miami. The rumors began to swirl after the two were seen going out to lunch together in Miami, as paparazzi caught photos of the model iconically wearing an oversized denim shirt as a dress.
Their fling seemed to be over before it even began, with reports claiming the baseball player found Spottswood to be “too clingy.”
Elaine Spottswood – Now
Since her brief romance with A-Rod, Spottswood has been living a life out of the spotlight and even has her Instagram account set to private. It seems like her 15 minutes of fame during her quick fling with the Yankees player was enough for her to realize it was not the kind of life she wanted.
It also appears as if she has put her modeling days behind her and is now working with her family’s Key West, Florida-based real estate agency called Spottswood Companies.
Kyna Treacy (2012)
A-Rod apparently made a move on Australian bikini model Kyna Treacy in the middle of a Yankees American League Championship Series game in 2012. The story goes that a benched Alex noticed the model sitting in the second-row with her friend and threw a baseball to her with a message asking for her phone number.
Although A-Rod went on to deny the rumors, a friend of Treacy claimed that the Yankees star really did call up Treacy after the game and took her on a late-night date.
Kyna Treacy – Now
Ever since that infamous baseball game, Treacy has been keeping busy – just not in the center of tabloid scandals. Along with making appearances as a model on Deal or No Deal, she has also been working on her own business, Kini Glow, where she offers customizable organic airbrush tans for the rich and famous.
She has even provided fake glows for celebrities like Mandy Moore, Tina Fey, and Emily Blunt – pretty impressive if you ask us!
Alicia Marie (2008)
Another woman who came shortly post-divorce was Alicia Marie, a bodybuilder and fitness model who he reportedly had a fling with in 2008. Although their relationship was never officially confirmed, photos of the two partying together only made people even more suspicious that they were an item.
Marie eventually revealed that although she did spend some alone time in his apartment, they were never anything more than “close friends,” even calling the Yankees star a “sweetheart.”
Alicia Marie – Now
Today, Marie is still focused on her fitness modeling, although she has earned a name for herself on social media for her impressive cosplay work.
On her Instagram page that boasts 229k followers, Marie shares photos of her dressing up as some of her favorite characters from video games and movies, including Harley Quinn. She even got to meet Margot Robbie at the Hollywood film premiere for the actress’ most recent film, Birds of Prey.
Erin Simmons (2015)
In 2015, A-Rod was spotted with yet another fitness model, Erin Simmons, during a charity gala event in December, not long after his relationship with Torrie Wilson came to an end.
The Yankees shortstop and former track athlete met at the gym, as many of his romances typically do meet, where they started talking and bonded over their mutual interest in fitness. Unfortunately, this was another one of Alex’s romances that didn’t last very long.
Erin Simmons – Now
Ever since her high-profile date night with A-Rod, Simmons has seemed to be enjoying a more discreet life. By the looks of her Instagram, she has continued to focus on a career in fitness, and currently holds a Ph.D in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology and a Masters in Biology.
She is often providing workout tips and promoting healthy diets and lifestyles on her page while helping and inspiring others to get fit and eat well.
Candice Houlihan (2004)
In 2008, in the midst of A-Rod and Cynthia’s messy divorce, a Boston hairdresser named Candice Houlihan came clean confessing to have had relations with the Yankees shortstop while he was in town for a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in 2004.
After the former dancer stated that she had a two-night fling with A-Rod, who’s wife at the time was pregnant with their first child, tabloids filled with rumors surrounding the scandalous affair.
Candice Houlihan – Now
After news spread of A-Rod’s alleged affair with the Houlihan, it didn’t take long until it was all over the headlines. News outlets all over the country were pursuing the dancer-turned-hairdresser, hoping to get an inside scoop on what happened between her and the Yankees star, but things got too far when crowds of reporters showed up in front of her house.
Houlihan was also not thrilled at the numerous posts on social media calling her out for being a ‘home-wrecker.’ She had such a bad experience from the whole thing, which could explain why she has been staying on the down low in recent years.
Joslyn Noel Morse (2007)
Of course, Houlihan wasn’t the only woman A-Rod was accused of being unfaithful on his wife with. In 2007, a year before his divorce, Alex met former Las Vegas club dancer Joslyn Noel Morse.
It was reported that Morse and A-Rod were seen spending quality time out together on numerous occasions in Tampa, Miami, Dallas, and Toronto. While it was never confirmed whether or not they had a romantic relationship, photos of the couple heading into his hotel together seemed to be enough proof.
Joslyn Noel Morse – Now
Joslyn Morse is yet another one of A-Rod’s ex-rumored flings to seem to have suddenly disappeared after all the drama settled. While not too much is known about the dancer, it does say on her Twitter account that she is “committed to living a healthy lifestyle.”
Her page also says that she is still spending time between Las Vegas and Miami, and by the looks of it, is a proud dog mom to an adorable puppy.
Lauren Hunter (2011)
Shortly before A-Rod and Cameron Diaz parted ways, the former Yankee was apparently unfaithful with the actress with a woman named Lauren Hunter. Hunter, a fitness model, claimed she met Alex at an exclusive gym in West Hollywood before beginning an affair that allegedly went on for years.
The model even gave details about their time together, claiming that she had been intimate with the baseball star several times, including the same day that he accompanied his girlfriend at the time Diaz to the MTV Movie Awards.
Lauren Hunter – Now
According to her Twitter page, Lauren Hunter is a personal trainer, swimwear and fitness competitor title holder, interior designer, and a mother to three sons. Hunter recently made claims that not only did she have an affair with A-Rod when he was still with Cameron Diaz, but she also allegedly received flirtatious text messages from him as far as May 2017, which was two months after he started dating J.Lo.
The model also claimed that A-Rod asked her to meet him in Kansas City that same month, even sharing the supposed text conversation between them.
Jennifer Lopez (2017-)
Although they didn’t become official until 2017, A-Rod first met his now fiancee and future wife Jennifer Lopez in May 2005. J.Lo was attending a Yankees game with her then-husband Marc Anthony when the famous couple got to meet and even pose for a picture with the star baseball player.
Although they were both married at the time, Rodriguez has since revealed that there was a spark of chemistry between them during their brief meeting. “We shook hands, and it was this weird electricity for like three seconds,” he said, explaining that it was that moment that he got “stuck” into her eyes.
Of course, it wouldn’t be until 12 years later, in February 2017, that A-Rod and J.Lo would reconnect after bumping into each other at a restaurant. After a brief encounter they made plans for their own dinner date, and the rest is history.
Two years later, in March 2019, the famous pair shared the news that they were engaged after Alex popped the question while on vacation in the picturesque Bahamas. Since then, the power couple have been pretty much setting relationship goals for the rest of us and now we are just waiting for the highly-anticipated wedding.
Despite A-Rod and J.Lo’s seemingly perfect relationship and adorable blended family, they have still had to face rumors in regards to the former Yankees’ faithfulness. Not long after the big engagement news got out, former Oaklan A’s player Jose Canseco came out with some allegations of his own, tweeting that Rodriguez was cheating on Lopez with his ex-wife, Jessica Sekely – who he claims A-Rod has been involved with for years.
Sekely, however, was quick to break the silence, saying that she and A-Rod are just old friends, insisting that she hasn’t seen him in over five years.
Unfortunately for the newly engaged couple, more allegations were quick to follow, but this time from a woman named Zoe Gregory. The former model and personal trainer came out not long after their engagement claiming that A-Rod had been sending inappropriate text messages and asking to meet up just weeks prior to him proposing to Lopez.
According to Gregory, the “flirty messages” between herself and the former baseball star continued until January 22, until they eventually fell out of touch.
The truth or plain gossip?
A-Rod and J.Lo are hardly the first (or last) happy celeb couple to be plagued by infidelity rumors. And it’s no wonder many let the rumors get to them and affect the relationship, since they so often turn out to be true.
But in A-Rod’s case, many have noted the rumors came on full force only once the engagement was announced. So the timing seems suspiciously much as if jealous people simply want to rain on this power couple’s parade.
What does J.Lo say?
J.Lo of course had to respond to all the rumors, and she did so with the cool, level-headed approached of a woman who’s very experienced – both when it comes to media gossip, and relationships.
Jennifer stayed quiet for some time, but eventually preferred to address the matter rather than seeing the rumors grow even more out of proportion. She gave her side of the story during a casual interview on the New York’s Power 105.1 radio show.
“I know what the truth is”
Remaining very calm about the whole thing, J.Lo basically shrugged it off and said it doesn’t really matter, because she knows who her fiance truly is. “We’re just happy”, the star said.
She also said they as a couple and as individuals don’t let other people, who are complete strangers, come out and tell them who they are and what their relationship is. “I know what our relationship is”, J.Lo said with a confident finality in her tone.
Jennifer then went on to gush about her soon-to-be husband, so it’s pretty evident neither of the two are letting these silly rumors get in the way of their happy life together.
Everyone is now eagerly anticipating more details about their wedding, which they so far have been pretty tight-lipped about. But it’s evident the long road A-Rod has had until he found his perfect partner, makes him appreciate Jennifer even more, and he is sure to want everything to be perfect on their big day.
Finally with the one
Despite A-Rod’s long and winding dating history, he has actually only been married once before. J.Lo on the other hand, is a little more experienced in the marriage department – as she has been married three times.
The most famous and long-lasting was of course her marriage to Marc Anthony, which lasted a full decade and resulted in twins Max and Emme. But hopefully, second and fourth time will be the charm for this power couple.
