Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez was on Ellen and dished on the encounter that launched her new relationship with Alex Rodriguez.

Reports that the two were dating surfaced in March, and the mere mention of his name had Lopez bursting with a nervous laughter.

She says that their meeting was “very simple.”

She said at a restaurant when she spotted A-Rod:

I saw him walk by and then afterwards I went outside, but for some reason I just felt like tapping him on the shoulder and saying hi. And I said, ‘Hi, Alex,’ and he was like, ‘Hi, Jennifer, …and then that was it.

Afterwards A-Rod said they should “hang out” to which J-Lo agreed.

I said, ‘Well, you can find me. You have my number.’ So he texted and invited her to dinner.

She was clear about one thing, though, she did NOT sleep with him on the first date.

“Mama don’t sleep over on the first date.”
