Jennifer Lopez‘s current boyfriend, retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez is reportedly stepping out on her with an ex-girlfriend.
J-Lo, 47, and A-Rod, 41, began dating a few months ago, but A-Rod has reportedly been in contact with an ex-girlfriend, who is now demanding money for her silence.
A source told gossip tabloid TMZ that Rodriguez is considering taking action to keep the unidentified ex from selling their steamy text messages to the highest bidder.
Part of his defense includes staying one step ahead of her by claiming the text messages are old. His reps claim she will doctor the messages to make them appear to be new.
The retired baseball star reportedly split with the unnamed woman following a fling in 2014 and she contacted him infrequently to ask for small amounts of money, which he always refused, according to TMZ.com.
According to WENN.com, the ex has been demanding larger amounts of money and when Alex refused once again, the ex demanded he pay her $600,000 or she would shop their private text messages to the highest bidder.
TMZ reports that Lopez is fully aware of the situation and stands by her man as she has been in a similar position in the past.
Alex, who has previously been linked to dozens of social climbers and stars including Cameron Diaz and Madonna, confirmed his romance with J-Lo in March and they made their public debut as a couple in May at the Met Gala in New York.
Friends say Lopez, who has a long history of failed relationships, is already talking marriage to the promiscuous playboy and divorced father of two.
