In January, Lopez performed at the 2021 inauguration of Joe Biden.
In March, Lopez and Rodriquez were plagued by rumours they had called off their engagement, and in May they actually did.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the pair said in a statement.
That same month, Ben Affleck mentioned his ex in an InStyle interview.
“She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business,” he said of Lopez. “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”
Lopez must have taken notice, because the pair soon began hanging out and in July confirmed their relationship on Instagam. They proudly attended a number of red carpet events together, looking as loved-up as ever.
In July, she released the single ‘Cambia el Paso’ with Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro and filmed a number of movies. She signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce a number of films and tv shows in mid-2021.
