Jennifer Lopez is still, allegedly, holding on to the engagement ring that Alex Rodriguez gave her two years ago.
According to National Enquirer, Jennifer Lopez refused to return the expensive diamond sparkler to her former fiancé.
“Jennifer still has the ring. It’s in a safe place for security reasons but very much still in her possession. She and Alex gave each other lots of expensive jewelry, including several watches for his collection that she doesn’t want to be returned, but nothing as valuable as the engagement ring,” the source said.
Alex Rodriguez gave up hope of getting his engagement ring from Jennifer Lopez back
The insider claimed that Lopez and Rodriguez never talked about the engagement ring because the latter thought they would eventually get back together.
But now that Lopez is already with Ben Affleck, it has become more difficult for Rodriguez to get the ring back.
“At first, Alex was confident that he could win Jen back, which is why he didn’t say anything about the ring. But with Ben in the picture, even Alex has had to admit there’s zero chance of him ever getting back with Jen. It’s hard enough losing Jennifer Lopez, but losing almost $2 million, too? That really hurts,” the source said.
Jennifer Lopez likes to keep her ex’s engagement rings
A second source said that Rodriguez shouldn’t be surprised that Lopez wants to keep the engagement ring. After all, she is still in possession of the engagement ring that Affleck gave her.
“Jen’s the type of girl who believes a gift is a gift. It’s something you can’t take back, especially after you were the one who messed up. It’s not about the money, it’s about the promise. Jen took her engagements to both Alex and Ben very seriously,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. Jennifer Lopez is not refusing to return the engagement ring that Rodriguez gave her. By the looks of it, Rodriguez didn’t ask for it in return.
As of late, Lopez and Rodriguez have not publicly talked about the engagement ring after their split. So, no one knows for sure where their head is at when it comes to the diamond.
