Singer, actress, happy fiancée in the arms of Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez then hoped to become the new owner of the New York Mets baseball team, even going so far as to create a consortium with her beloved and several businessmen like Marc Lore and Mike Repole. But on the night of this Friday 28 to this Saturday 29 August, the interpreter of Jenny from the Block announced bad news on his Instagram account: their offer to the family of Fred Wilpon, the current owner of the Mets, did not was not selected. The star and his dear and tender had offered the nice sum of 1.7 billion dollars or 1.43 billion euros.
“Alex and I are so disappointed!” Wrote Jennifer Lopez in the caption of her publication. “We have worked so hard for the past six months, dreaming of becoming the first minority couple and the first woman to own her father’s favorite baseball team with her own money.” Indeed, if the offer of the singer of 51 years and Alex Rodriguez had been accepted, it would have marked a turning point in the history of baseball. The mother of Maximilian and Emme could have become the first woman but especially the first Latin American woman – and therefore of diversity – as a daughter of Puerto Rican parents to be at the head of a sports team. “We haven’t given up yet,” she promised, however. A better offer soon in sight?
A wedding in suspense
A new setback for Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, who are obviously not lucky. Because, if they have, for the time being, been forced to give up taking the helm of the Mets team, they have also been forced to suspend preparations for their wedding. The lovebirds had planned to say “yes” to each other for life during the summer of this year 2020 … before the coronavirus pandemic puts a strain on them. “I’m a little heartbroken,” Jennifer Lopez admitted on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show in May 2020, “we had some great things planned, but I’m also like, you know what, God has a bigger plan and we just have to wait and see. Maybe it will be better? I have to believe it will be. ” Perseverance and optimism are his watchwords.
