The Surprising Celebrity That Alex Rodriguez Could Be With Next - Exclusive

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez split back in April after dating for more than three years. "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another's children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support," the couple said in a statement to Today. The two had been engaged since 2019, when Rodriguez got down on one knee on a beach in the Bahamas.

While some fans were hopeful that these two would end up getting back together, others are ready for A-Rod and J-Lo to move on. It appears as though Lopez has already done so, as she's been spotted hanging out with an old flame. According to People magazine, Lopez and her ex Ben Affleck reconnected recently, and spent a chill weekend in Montana. "They both had last week off and wanted to spend time away from L.A. Ben suggested Montana since he has a place there," a source told People after the two were spotted together on May 10. Meanwhile, A-Rod hasn't been seen with any new lady friends, so Nicki Swift decided to check-in with a matchmaker to get a feel for who Rodriguez should pair up with next. Keep reading to find out the surprising response.

Alex Rodriguez needs someone to 'stroke his ego,' matchmaker says

Alex Rodriguez may not be ready to jump into another relationship quite yet, but there is an eligible woman out there that could be a good fit for him, according to matchmaker and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking, Susan Trombetti. Nicki Swift asked Trombetti who she could see making Rodriguez happy. "When it comes to who will make a good partner for A-Rod, I think there are lots of possibilities. It seems A-Rod loves his celebrity lifestyle. I can see him connecting with Kim Kardashian," Trombetti said. She went on to say that she could "see him romancing" the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star when he is ready to get back out into the dating world.

Trombetti doesn't think anything serious will come of a Kardashian-Rodrgiuez (K-Rod?) hook-up because "he will have underestimated her, and she won't be there to stroke his ego like he needs so desperately." Kardashian and Rodriguez both enjoy the finer things in life — and they are both single — so we guess anything is possible!
