For many years, Alex Rodriguez was suspected of taking steroids in order to enhance his performance on the baseball field.
But now the controversial superstar is suspected of something far less sinister and far more sexy:
The banging of Jennifer Lopez!
Last week, multiple sources confirmed that Lopez and Rodriguez are a romantic item, with websites claiming the singer and former slugger had spent recent time in Las Vegas.
"They’ve been quietly dating for a couple months," read an entry on LoveBScott.com, which explained that Lopez and Drake split up in January.
The anonymous source who broke this news to the site said it was "absolutely true" that J. Lo and A. Rod had come together (literally!) to form J. Rod.
The day after this story ran, E! News confirmed that the stars were "dating," although it made a point of saying things were "light-hearted" at the moment; neither side is seeking a serious relationship.
That may be true, but Lopez just announced her relatively new romance on social media.
Possibly. Maybe. Most likely.
Late on Sunday, the artist shared a grainy photo on her Instagram account in which she sat next to someone (in bed!) who looked a lot like the former New York Yankees MVP.
Although Lopez’s hair obscures her presumed lover’s face, it certainly appears to A. Rod settled in behind J. Lo.
His hand is placed gently on the singer’s long hair and he is nuzzling her ear.
Lopez deleted this photo not long after it went live, which just proves she’s a true professional.
She knows how to stoke the rumor mill without fully acknowledging any romance, keeping fans guessing and websites buzzing and her name firmly in the news.
Lopez and Rodriguez, meanwhile, are enjoying a romantic getaway at Bakers Bay Golf & Ocean Club in the Bahamas, according to The New York Post.
Insiders have told Page Six that they flew via private jet from Miami to Marsh Harbour on Friday night, arriving at the Harbour View Marina… where they were caught looking awfully cozy on a power boat en route to their sequestered destination.
“It’s early days, but Jennifer and Alex are really into each other,” a mole tells the newspaper.
Lopez and Rodriguez both share kids with their former spouses.
J. Lo and Marc Anthony, who are on great terms, co-parent nine-year-old twins, Emme and Max.
Rodriguez has two daughters – Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8 – with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
He recently broke up with Anne Wojcicki, a relationship that followed past dalliances with with Cameron Diaz, Torrie Wilson and Kate Hudson.
For a guy who always came across like a total tool during his baseball-playing days, he’s been using his tool (read: penis) in impressive fashion throughout his booty-playing days.
