Alex Rodriguez recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and dished the highly cute story of how he met Jennifer Lopez. The problem? J.Lo had ~allegedly~ told Ellen a completely different story and the host wasn’t having it.
According to Alex, the story goes that he was leaving a meeting and trying to find his car when someone (spoiler: it was J.Lo!!!!!!) tapped his shoulder.
“Someone taps me on the shoulder, and I turn around and I do not recognize this person,” he said. “And it’s Jennifer, but she’s dressed up as Harlee from Shades of Blueand she’s in her jeans and her big boots. And it took me about 4 or 5 seconds. And she said, ‘It’s Jennifer! It’s Jennifer!’ I go, ‘Oh my God, Jennifer, you look beautiful.’ I was so embarrassed and then I got a little nervous, and I’m like, ‘This is so goofy, we all know who Jennifer is and she’s everywhere. Then we basically had a small chit-chat […] and she says, ‘You have my number, reach out.’ And I went home that night and reached out.”
Ellen’s reaction? A full NOPE: “She says you went up to her and you approached her at her table and started talking.”
