JLo wants a boyfriend 'she can trust' after split from ARod amid claims he cheated with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy

JENNIFER Lopez wants a man “she can trust” after splitting from ARod amid claims he cheated on her with Southern Charm’s Madison LeCroy.

The former couple announced their split with a joint statement earlier this month after four years of dating.

 A source close to JLo, 51, told Us Weekly that next time she wants a boyfriend and partner she can trust. 

“JLo was always aware of the rumors of him cheating or him messaging other girls,” the source revealed.  

“You can say that for sure [that] played a part in why the engagement ended. She wants someone who’s fully invested in her and someone she can trust when her partner is not around.”

Last week the couple revealed in a statement to the Today Show that are months of speculation, their relationship was completely over.

"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," it read.

"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."

According to a source close to Jennifer it was she that put the final nail in the coffin by insisting the broke the news publicly.

A friend close to Jennifer, 51, revealed to PEOPLE: "She insisted on it. There are too many issues that are unresolved."

Sadly, Jennifer didn't fully "trust" Alex, 45, even before rumors began to swirl that he had cheated on her with Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy.

"She has been pretty miserable," said the friend, adding "and didn't think it was in her best interests to stay with Alex."

The Covid-19 pandemic put a strain on their relationship as they spent every day together, a second source said, adding: "They both liked spending more time together as a family, but it was difficult to keep that special spark when they saw each other every day."

However, the sources didn't confirm or deny that Alex cheated because "whether or not he has cheated doesn't matter. She won't tolerate the fear of it in the air between them."

Sadly, it's not just Jennifer and Alex that have to worry about their feelings, but they also have to worry about the kids.

JLo's kids with Marc Anthony, Max and Emme, 13; and Alex's daughters with Cynthia Scurtis, Ella and Natasha, have grown close.

"They're especially sad for the kids since they are all so close," said the friend. "It's not a good situation but inevitable."

However, Jennifer isn't about to let the break-up get her down as the friend continued: "Jennifer has been in these difficult situations before. She is not one to sit around and cry.

"Her kids make her the happiest. She is doing well."

This sad news comes a few days after Jennifer was spotted without her engagement ring.

Following the break-up, ARod shared a sad Instagram story where he filmed over a shrine of their relationship while tagging his now ex.

Alex set the video to Coldplay's emotional ballad Fix You, filming the photos as Chris Martin sang, "Tears stream down your face."

Sources close to the couple revealed that JLo’s “trust was broken,” following rumors ARod cheated with Madison, which they have both denied.

But an insider explained to E! News: "Once her trust is broken, there's no turning around. 

“She feels good about her decision because she knows ARod will still be in her life, just in a different capacity.”

The source claimed the 51-year-old is “at peace” with her decision as both parties knew the breakup was coming due to "not being happy for a while now."  

Despite the rumors, Madison has stood by the fact that she and ARod never hooked up – her co-stars say otherwise.

Over the weekend, a follower commented on a snap of Madison enjoying a cocktail: “Mmmm Arod on his way girl get bags pack he coming for you."

But the Bravolebrity insisted: “I have a boyfriend!”

She had initially captioned the snap: “Let’s root for each other and watch each other grow.”

Following the split last week, Madison told Page Six: “I wish them the best.”

The couple got engaged in 2019 but pushed their wedding back twice because of the pandemic.
