Will Jennifer Lopez Use a Cheating Clause in Her Prenup With Alex Rodriguez?

It was exciting news when Jennifer Lopez came back from a trip to the Bahamas with Alex Rodriguez sporting a huge diamond ring on her left hand! A-Rod got down on one knee and asked the most important question, and JLo said yes!

Fans went wild as soon as the news was announced on social media and immediately began wondering about the details of what is sure to be an amazing wedding. However, less than one day after Jennifer and Alex made it official, cheating rumors surfaced. This led many to wonder if the rumors will cause Jennifer to put a cheating penalty clause in the couple’s prenuptial agreement.

Jennifer and Alex are worth a fortune

On their own, Jennifer and Alex are each worth an incredible amount of money, with JLo’s net worth around $400 million, and Alex’s net worth at about $350 million, meaning that together, the couple will be worth almost $1 billion. That is quite a lot of money to protect, and a prenuptial agreement only makes sense! While it may be a little early to start thinking about what will happen if the marriage sadly doesn’t last, chances are that JLo and A-Rod, who have both been married and divorced in the past, are already considering their prenuptial agreement.

What are the cheating rumors all about?

Less than 24 hours after the engagement was announced, Jose Canseco, a former teammate of Alex’s, said that A-Rod had been cheating with his ex-wife, Jessica Canseco. He made the accusations via social media, saying that Alex was unfaithful and will end up causing Jennifer hurt and emotional pain. Jessica herself denied that any cheating was going on, saying they hadn’t even seen each other in a number of years. As a result, Jennifer has the ultimate faith and trust in her fiancé and doesn’t believe the rumors one bit!

JLo had a cheating penalty clause in her prenuptial agreement with Ben Affleck

In the early 2000s, Jennifer Lopez was famously engaged to actor Ben Affleck, although the two never actually exchanged vows. The prenuptial agreement had already been drafted and reportedly contained a clause regarding infidelity. This proves that Jennifer will go to great lengths to protect herself from anything that can possibly happen. Despite the fact that she is confident that Alex did not cheat on their relationship with Jessica Canseco, she may opt for a cheating penalty clause when the prenuptial agreement is written.

Would a cheating clause make sense?

It certainly would! Having a cheating penalty clause in a prenuptial agreement certainly does not mean the couple does not love or trust each other. If anything, it gives both parties peace of mind. Jennifer and Alex are a very high-profile couple, and there will always be rumors surrounding their relationship. This may not be the last time that someone comes forward and accuses one of them of infidelity, even if it is completely false. A cheating clause may help JLo and A-Rod feel better, and take some pressure off of their high-profile relationship.

Why did Jose Canseco make these allegations?

As for why the cheating accusations were made in the first place is still anyone’s guess. Although Jennifer and Alex have not publicly commented, they do not seem too concerned about the rumors, and are moving forward with this exciting time in their lives. Perhaps Jose was looking for attention or wanting to create a scandal of some sort. Whatever the reason is, it certainly did not stop the happiness that JLo and A-Rod are currently experiencing, which came as quite a relief to fans! Congratulations to the couple!
