Jennifer Lopez has not been delaying her wedding to Alex Rodriguez, despite an ongoing narrative in the tabloids. The couple is planning to get married next year, but that hasn’t stopped the gossip media from churning out false reports about their marriage plans being in jeopardy. Here are a few times Gossip Cop has called out the tabloids in recent months about Lopez allegedly delaying her wedding.
A few weeks after the couple got engaged in March, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer for falsely claiming Lopez was having second thoughts about marrying Rodriguez. The magazine maintained that the singer was “really dragging her feet” and “won’t make it down the aisle.” The story leaned heavily on the idea that Lopez’s past marriages were making her nervous about marrying the former Yankee for fear that it would also end in divorce. Around the same time the phony article was published, Lopez shared several Instagram photos of the two together, including one of them sharing a kiss in New York City.
In August, the Enquirer made up a story about Lopez being “too busy” to marry Rodriguez, claiming she was purposely taking on new projects to push back the wedding, causing friction in their relationship. It’s true that the couple is very busy, as Lopez has been on tour and is getting ready to shoot a new movie, while Rodriguez is a color commentator for ESPN, but their schedules weren’t “delaying” a wedding that hasn’t been planned yet. Like any busy couple, they are planning their wedding around their hectic schedules. An individual in the singer’s camp assured Gossip Cop there was “no truth” to scheduling issues causing friction between the pair.
In September, Gossip Cop called out Life & Style for claiming Lopez was getting cold feet before marrying Rodriguez. This bogus story hearkened back to the earlier narrative that Lopez had “come down with a case of pre-wedding jitters” because the singer would be “humiliated” if the marriage turned into her fourth divorce. The whole story was nonsense. Lopez told Entertainment Tonight there’s “no rush” to get married, adding, “We really see this as something that’s gonna be forever, and we’re gonna just take our time and do it right.” The singer didn’t postpone a wedding that wasn’t imminent in the first place.
And just last week, NW falsely claimed Lopez was too muscular for her wedding dress, so she was pushing back her nuptials to get fitted for a new gown. The absurd story was created simply because Lopez was spotted lifting weights with Rodriguez. In reality, the engaged couple enjoy working out together, and their hobby hasn’t impacted their wedding plans. For starters, brides aren’t typically fitted for dresses in advance of a wedding date being set. A source close to the singer confirmed the storyline was ridiculous.
