Jennifer Lopez made her months-old split from Alex Rodriguez Instagram official after she deleted all traces of their relationship from the social media platform.
The 52-year-old actress and singer also unfollowed her former fiancé amid her social media cleanse.
Eagle-eyed fans of the Out Of Sight star first noticed on Saturday that A-Rod was completely out of her (virtual) life.

Fans first noticed that photos that featured the former couple were missing, including a set of photos that were taken near the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., in January.
The couple had traveled to the seat of government to celebrate the inauguration of President Joe Biden, and Jennifer sang America The Beautiful and This Land Is Your Land at the outdoor ceremony.
Although the photos with Alex were noticeably absent, solo shots of the pop star performing were still on her page.
A search of her followers list also indicated that she no longer was keeping tabs on her ex.

Jennifer and Alex first met all the way back in 2005, but it wasn’t until March of 2017 that the couple were first reported to have been dating.
Alex confirmed the relationship later in the month, and the Waiting For Tonight singer also spoke publicly about it.
Their red-carpet debut came shortly afterward in May, when they arrived together looking glamorous at the Met Gala in Manhattan.
The union seemed to be a solid fit for the two, and it didn’t hurt that their children also seemed to get along well.
The Maid In Manhattan actress shares twins Emme and Max, 13, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, while A-Rod has lookalike daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, from his marriage to Cynthia Scurtis.

Just over two years into their relationship, the lovebirds got engaged in March of 2019.
But a year the later the coronavirus spread across the globe and forced the couple to indefinitely postpone their wedding plans.
But by the spring of 2021, Alex was beset by rumors that he had cheated with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy, though she claimed the two had never met in person.
Page Six reported in March of that year that they had decided to go their separate ways.
‘This has been a long time coming,’ a source told People at the time. ‘They are tied in their business worlds so it’s not a cut and dry breakup. It’s taken a while for them to even think about untangling it all.’
But on March 13, the couple made an about-face and claimed ‘We are working through some things’ in a statement.
They were seen shortly afterward as they got close in the Dominican Republic, where Jennifer was shooting a film, but in April they were reported to have split for good.

‘We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,’ they said in a joint statement.
‘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.’
It wasn’t long after Jen and Alex split that her former fiancé Ben Affleck, 49, came back into the picture.
The couple had previously dated in the early 2000s and had been engaged from 2002 until early 2004, before separating.
But according to TMZ, Ben got back in touch with Jennifer in February and began sending her ‘loving and longing’ emails while she was on set filming.
It’s unclear if she and Alex were together at that time, or just keeping up appearances, but she continued responding back and forth through the duration fo the shoot.

In April, Ben was seen driving to a hotel, only to be picked up in Jennifer’s SUV and taken to her home in LA for them to spend time together.
The two kicked things up a notch in May with a week-long trip to snow Montana, and then followed that one up with another trip to Miami, where she and her family were based at the time.
It wasn’t until June that the renewed lovers were spotted kissing at a birthday party for Jennifer’s sister Lynda Lopez.
They repeated the gesture in a steamy set of photos in June to mark the singer’s 52nd birthday.
In recent weeks the couple have been seen touring houses around Los Angeles, and Jennifer’s kids are reportedly comfortable with Ben and up for a move back to the West Coast.
