Hours after refuting breakup reports, Alex Rodriguez decided to double down on his relationship status with Jennifer Lopez. On Saturday afternoon, photographers stopped the former baseball pro on his way to the gym in Miami, asking him if he was single.

"I'm not single," he replied back in video footage obtained by TMZ.

Earlier in the day, Lopez and Rodriguez released a joint statement, announcing that they're still together, but are "working through some things." The couple also said reports of them splitting up were "inaccurate."

"They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up," a source told People, adding, "She's working in the Dominican Republic and he's in Miami so it's tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID, but they want to try to stay together."

Another insider at E! News shared that J.Lo and A-Rod were "caught off guard" by how quickly reports of their alleged breakup spread, and while they aren't ending things for now, their relationship is "hanging by a thread."

"Jennifer was ready to end things with Alex several months ago," the source said. "After fighting for weeks and living separately, Jennifer was done. But Alex convinced her that he would be better."

Lopez and Rodriguez have been together for four years, and got engaged in March 2019 after dating for two years.
