Jennifer Lopez says she’s so competitive that she will break up with boyfriend Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez if he beats her at a sporting event, which is bold, because like…he’s a pro athlete. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lopez called out her bae A-Rod and said it’s over if he ever challenges her to a feat of athletic strength and wins.
“Here’s the thing, he just doesn’t even entertain my delusions,” she later explained. “Like, I’ll say, ‘Babe, I feel like I could beat you.’ And he’s like [straight-faced]. [He has] no reaction!”
Kimmel asked Lopez what would happen if her partner accepted her athletic challenge and Lopez quipped, half-laughing, half-deadly serious: “There’s no winning that because if he beats me, it’s over!”
Kimmel also asked the multi-hyphenate-star if she played any sports growing-up and J.Lo revealed that she used to run track, but when the audience laughed, she clapped back with a quick, “I did! I have tons of trophies!” (Girl, we don’t doubt you!)
You need to watch Lopez tell these stories herself — her enthusiasm is infectious:
Lopez and Rodriguez met in February 2017 like regular people: They saw each other at a restaurant, said “hi,” and then A-Rod suggested that they should “hang out.” Stars, they really are just like us.
The rest, they say, is history!*
*Unless A-Rod runs up the stairs faster than J.Lo. But until then.
