Boasting a history of dating multiple high-profile women, ‘A-Rod’ once dated renowned singer-actress Jennifer Lopez. Being a celebrity performer, Lopez performed at the 2020 NFL Super Bowl. Sharing the stage with her was pop music sensation Shakira. As the two celebrities had a friendly chat before their performance, the focus shifted to Lopez’s purse.
