- The MLB icon split with his fitness influencer girlfriend Kathryne Padget in September 2022, following his breakup with Jennifer Lopez in April 2021.
Alex Rodriguez has always been known as a bit of a ladies’ man. However, there was a good chunk of time he was strictly known as Jennifer Lopez’ boyfriend, even fiance at one point. Their red-hot romance ended in April 2021, with J.Lo making up for lost time with her new husband Ben Affleck. Meanwhile, A.Rod was back on the scene, single and ready to mingle, and was rumored to quickly find a new love interest in Kathryne Padget, a 25-year-old fitness influencer.
The MLB icon’s relationship with Katheryne was short-lived though and the duo reportedly split up in September 2020. Again, A.Rod brushed himself off, got back on the saddle and was soon snapped with another gorgeous blonde, whom the DailyMail confirmed as Jaclyn Cordeiro.
