And we had no idea ...

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

She might have revealed which One Direction member she has a crush on, but Jennifer Lopez has decided to settle down with a new beau – and it’s NOT Drake.

J-Lo and Drake might have had tongues wagging thanks to those very cosy-looking Instagram snaps, and his ex, Rihanna, even decided to make her feelings clear in the most 2017 way to break up with your friends – the dreaded Instagram unfollow. Ouch.

However, J-Lo finally put the rumours to bed while talking to Trevor Noah on The Daily Show and there’s no room for misinterpretation.

‘Let me clear this up. I am not with Drake,’ she said.

‘Maybe that’s all I need to say. He just asked me to do a song with him and that’s what we’ve been doing.’

But while we’ve all been blindsided by Dra-Lo, she’s actually been dating someone completely different.

According to reports, the 47-year-old singer is seeing former New York Yankees baseball player, Alex Rodriguez.

He apparently saw her performing at one of her shows in Las Vegas last month and they have been spending time together in Miami ever since.

But if you’re expecting the sound of wedding bells, you may just have to wait. A source told E! News: ‘This is very, very new. It’s not serious at all. J-Lo is just dating.

‘Jennifer and Alex are both not looking for a relationship, just a good light-hearted time.

‘They are on the exact same page.’

So we won’t buy a hat just yet.
