Jennifer Lopez and fiance Alex Rodriguez have broken up after four years.
The couple reportedly split over his 'friendship' with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy.
A source told Page 6 on Friday: 'The Madison LeCroy scandal was the reason they finally broke up. There were already problems, but Jennifer was really embarrassed by it.'
People reported that the split had been a 'long time coming', while sources told told UsWeekly that the couple had not seen each since March 1.
'They haven’t seen each other since then. There have been issues in their relationship for a while now.'
Cracks began to appear in the A lister's relationship in February after Madison claimed she spoke with Rodriguez over the phone.
The explosive allegations had originally occurred during a recent Southern Charm reunion, where Madison claimed she had been in contact with a married and ex-MLB player. The name had been bleeped out.
On Friday, Jennifer video called her ex-husband Marc Anthony and their crying daughter Emme, 13, on Friday after the split.
The singer, 51, took to her Instagram Story to share the emotional photo where she admitted: 'When they are sad but momma and daddy are there.'
In the photo shared to her Instagram Story, Emme, whose twin brother Max was not pictured, could be seen crying into her father Marc's arms as he comforted her.
Jennifer penned: 'When they are sad but momma and daddy are there #coconuts,' she added: 'I love you!! So proud of you.'
The singer split from ex Marc in 2011 after seven years of marriage and they filed for divorce in April 2012, they share twins Emme and Max.
Jennifer and Rodriguez then began dating in 2017 and announced their engagement in March 2019 during a getaway to the Bahamas where he surprised her with a large diamond ring.
The superstar's children had become very close to Rodriguez's two daughters, Natasha, 14, and ten-year-old Ella, whom he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez.
In 2018, Jennifer gushed their little ones 'have become best friends' and said she and Rodriguez 'couldn't have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do.'
The power couple were last pictured looking happy in late February during a getaway in Dominican Republic while the superstar filmed her latest movie, Shotgun Wedding, with Josh Duhamel.
Dailymail.com contacted both Jennifer and Rodriguez's representatives for comment but are yet to hear back.
Rodriguez appeared to brush off the reports as he shared a picture of himself alone on a yacht in Miami on Friday, which he captioned: 'Don’t mind me, just taking a sail-fie... What are your plans for the weekend?'
The sporting star is said to be getting ready for baseball season while Jennifer has thrown herself into filming her latest movie in the Dominican Republic.
The cheating allegations originally occurred during a recent Southern Charm reunion, where the name of the individual Madison was allegedly in contact with had been bleeped out.
During the episode, Madison was also accused of sleeping with the unidentified sports star but she denied ever seeing the man in person, although she did admit to DM-ing him.
Suspicions arose that the person could have been Rodriguez, despite him not being married and only engaged at the time to Jennifer.
Later, Madison revealed in an interview with Page Six she had been in 'innocent' communication with Rodriguez but that they had 'never met up' and only 'spoken on the phone'.
'That's the truth,' the reality star claimed, clarifying they had 'never been physical... never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.'
Madison also insisted that Rodriguez had 'never physically cheated' on Jennifer with her and that their phone calls had been 'inconsistent' and 'random'. The reality star would not reveal what was discussed.
The Southern Charm star's co-star Shep Rose, who spoke to UsWeekly on Friday, has since claimed 'there was an NDA signed', suggesting some damage control may have been done following their alleged communication.
Rodriguez insists he never slept with Madison or even knows her, according to a source.
The reality star claimed that the name concealed was Rodriguez's, but she was the one who requested his name withheld.
'I have tried to be as quiet as possible. I don't want anything bad for his family, or for mine. We are definitely innocent in this,' she insisted. Madison would also not reveal when the alleged phone calls occurred.
Rumors spread within her inner circle because she 'told the wrong person' about who she had been in contact with. 'All this stuff was a year ago [but] it's being aired now,' she explained.
However, a source with knowledge of the situation previously told DailyMail.com: 'Alex has never met or spoken to Madison or anyone from the show.'
During the Southern Charm episode, Madison was accused of sleeping with an unidentified, married ex-MLB player. The reality star denied ever seeing the man in person, although did admit to DM-ing him.
Madison was accused of getting intimate with a married former athlete. However, Rodriguez is not married, and has been engaged since 2019.
The identity of the individual was concealed, but Southern Charm star Danni Baird subsequently alleged on the Reality Life with Kate Casey that the person was Rodriguez.
DailyMail.com contacted Rodriguez and Madison's representatives at the time, who did not respond to comment.
'She had even told me that they were FaceTiming or something,' Baird said on the show.
Meanwhile, a source for the New York Post also insisted Rodriguez did not know or hook up with Madison.
'He doesn't know this woman,' the insider said. 'Look, does this mean he didn't DM her and liked a photo or two? I guess not, but he doesn't know her — and he definitely didn't hook up with her.'
However, eagle-eyed fans noticed at the time that Rodriguez had allegedly 'liked' several of Madison's photos - only to unlike them.
One of the photos was a snap taken of Madison at the beach in July, and another was of her with her friends on New Year's Eve.
The former MLB allegations came to light during the recent Southern Charm reunion, where Craig Conover claimed LeCroy had flown to Miami to be with a married man.
'You were flying around the country sleeping with married men, an ex MLB player! You flew to Miami to (expletive) an ex MLB player!' Craig alleged.
Madison was adamant she had never seen the athlete in person and shot back with: 'Put me on a lie detector test. I never flew to Miami. Tell me when I went to Miami. Where's the record of that? That's fake!'
Jennifer and Alex - who called each other Macha and Macho, respectively - had delayed their wedding twice citing it was due to lockdown from COVID-19.
