Former athlete Alex Rodriguez was reportedly shocked and saddened over the reported reunion of his former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez and actor Ben Affleck.

In a report by Entertainment Tonight (ET) online, a source close to Rodriguez said: “A-Rod is shocked that J.Lo has moved on. He truly thought they would be able to make it work and reconnect. He has been reaching out to J.Lo trying to meet with her and she has been very short with him.”

Multiple media reports in the US said that Lopez and Affleck, also known as Bennifer to their fans, enjoyed a week-long stay in Montana.

Reports said that Bennifer travelled to the Yellowstone Club shortly after attending the VAX Live Concert in Los Angeles last May 2.

“They were alone. Just the two of them,” the source told ET.

On April 15, J.Lo and A.Rod called it quits in an official statement issued to the Today Show.

“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 joint statement read.

Lopez and Affleck have called off their engagement and separated for good in January 2004.
