Alex Rodriguez was seen spending some time with Ben Affleck’s ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus over the weekend.
In a video obtained by the New York Post‘s Page Six, the former athlete was seen seated next to Shookus at a birthday party on Saturday. It doesn’t take too much to make the connection between the two as Shookus dated Affleck from 2017-2019 and Affleck is now dating Rodriguez’s recent Ex fiancee Jennifer Lopez.
The birthday party was allegedly celebrating Shookus, with Rodriguez attending with his business partner Marc Lore. The invitation and encounter did not involve any romance between Shookus and Rodriguez with a rep for Rodriguez insisting to PEOPLE “they have been friends for 15 years. There is nothing there at all.”
Rodriguez has gone on record that he isn’t thrilled about Affleck and Lopez rekindling their relationship so soon after J-Lo and A-Rod split back in May. Along with an Instagram Story indicating he was entering a new period of his life stating, “New energy is emerging. New levels are unlocking for me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am remaining patient and l know that this new phase of my life is coming.”
Although not as recent, it appears Shookus hasn’t been romantically involved since her split with Affleck either. With the couple initially calling it quits in 2018 and briefly being involved again in 2019.
After rumors of Shookus and Jon Hamm were becoming close in the fall of 2019, Shookus quickly shut it down with a rep telling PEOPLE she and Hamm had “been friends for over a decade.” The same response Rodriguez’s rep had to the most recent rumor.
