Fans Think That Jennifer Lopez Is Going to Elope
Conspiracy theorists, a.k.a. Jennifer Lopez fans, think that the superstar is planning on denying the general public a royal wedding-caliber event (nay, a spectacular) to elope with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez. However, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lopez insisted that an elopement isn't on the books and the fact that she's starring in films called Marry Me and Shotgun Wedding are purely coincidental. Sorry, folks, no life-imitates-art situation here.
Lopez said that the idea that she's been dropping hints about her personal life in her work has followed her for a while. She told ET that it came up when she released the song "El Anillo." The fact that she got engaged to Rodriguez a year after the release of the song had fans connecting the dots. But Lopez says it wasn't intentional.
"It's funny because life does reflect into things you are doing at times," Lopez said. "But it's just kind of a coincidence because when I did 'El Anillo,' the song in Spanish, which is, 'When are you going to give me a ring?' I was not really trying to send a message. It was just a song that we wrote that we liked and with Marry Me, it was something we were developing for, I would say, seven years."
She went on to acknowledge the rumors and then swiftly dispel them.
"All of that stuff and it was happening now where Alex and I are engaged and about to get married at some point," she added. "It just happens that way. It's a funny thing, life and art, they kind of intersect."
Lopez and Rodriguez got engaged in March 2019 and had planned on getting married in 2020 — until 2020 happened. While Lopez admitted that she was "heartbroken" at the thought of postponing such a huge event, she's not dwelling on it. Instead, she's working on new movies, launching a skin-care line, releasing a new album, and is set to grow her empire even more.
