Who Has the Higher Net Worth: Jennifer Lopez or Alex Rodriguez?
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are getting married. The stunning couple got engaged in early March 2019 after two years of together while on vacation in the Bahamas. The baseball legend popped the question with a massive emerald cut ring that looks to have at least 15 carats and is worth a reported $1 million.
Now that the songstress/actress and the former Yankee are making things super official –their respective wealth will only expand tenfold. But who has the higher net worth?
Jennifer Lopez is worth $400 million
Jennifer Lopez began building her staggering net worth in the late ’80s when she burst onto the scene in her debut 1986 movie, My Little Girl. In the early ’90s, the Bronx native went on to dance as a Fly Girl on the hit sketch comedy series, In Living Color. However–J.Lo’s massive break was in 1997 when she snagged the starring role in Selena as the late singer Selena Quintanilla. Lopez was paid $1 million for her work, making her the first Latinx woman to ever earn so much for a film role.
Since then, the mother of two has starred in countless films and TV shows had a massive musical career, and she’s currently a judge and executive producer on the reality competition show, World of Dance. She is now worth $400 million.
Alex Rodriguez is worth $350 million
Back in 1993 at the age of 18 Alex Rodriguez began his professional baseball career. From the beginning of his career, Rodriguez was a massive star on the field winning various awards and accolades. He would play for 22 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and the New York Yankees.
Though much of Rodriguez’s massive wealth (which is still $50 million less than his soon-to-be wife) comes from his days as a shortstop and third baseman, he has also had a slew of endorsement deals including Credit Suisse, Mercedes-Benz, Nike, and Rolex. He is also still getting paid from his time with the Rangers. His last payment will be paid on June 15, 2025. Rodriguez is now worth $350 million.
