Jennifer Lopez & A-Rod took their love to the South of France & Paris

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are still happening. Please, as if those cheating rumors even put a dent in their LOVE. Jennifer and Alex set off last week for a luxury vacation, and I’m actually feeling this. It reminds me of old school Bennifer 1.0, wherein J.Lo is dating another sleazeball and they’re flaunting their love through yachts, shopping and makeovers. Jennifer absolutely adores to “Cinderella” her men, and A-Rod seems especially game.

First, they were seen on a yacht – likely rented or borrowed – near Antibes. You can see some photos here. J.Lo wore an unflattering monkini and the whole thing looked like the video shoot for “Jenny From the Block: Part Dos.” They went from Miami to Nice, France with Jennifer’s manager Benny Medina and “several friends and bodyguards.” In addition to yachting near Antibes, they gambled in Monaco and toured the rest of the French Riviera. Then they went to Paris. People Magazine had the breakdown and it honestly sounds like Jennifer is showing Alex her fabulous world AND she’s giving him a makeover at the same time.

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have taken their romance to the perfect place: Paris! The famous lovebirds were spotted in the City of Light Saturday, taking in famous sites like the Louvre, which Rodriguez shared snaps from on his Instagram story. An observer tells PEOPLE that Lopez, 47, and the retired baseball pro, 41, also did some shopping at a Chanel boutique on the Avenue Montaigne and a men’s shirtmaker near the Champs-Élysées.

“They were close to each other. No sign of any strain between them,” the observer says, likely referring to recent cheating rumors that insiders squashed earlier this month. “They were laughing and walking hand-in-hand.”

Paris wasn’t the only stop on the duo’s European vacation. On Wednesday night, they hit a casino in Monaco before heading off to La Chèvre d’or restaurant in Èze, France, for dinner.

“She knows the south of France very well,” the observer says of the World of Dance executive producer and lead judge. “She showed [Rodriguez] Monaco, Antibes/Cannes and St. Tropez. She seemed to be showing him places she loves.”

The romantic getaway seems to put to rest any and all rumors of tension between the pair — which a source close to Lopez told PEOPLE recently are completely misguided.

“Jennifer knows what’s going on. Alex has been very honest,” the source said. “She doesn’t believe he has gone behind her back since they started dating. They both have a past. Jennifer is focused on now and her future with Alex. She isn’t going to let someone from Alex’s past ruin what she has with him. Jennifer has never felt more loved and taken care of than with Alex. He is her biggest fan. He supports and encourages her every day. She has nothing but amazing things to say about him.”

What strikes me is that Alex is down for all of it. Unlike some of J.Lo’s previous liaisons, J-Rod is mutually beneficial. Alex is still a big deal to a lot of people, and he has his own money and celebrity base. He has the means to treat her like a princess. And she’s good for him – she raises his profile, helps his career, and now she’s giving him a makeover.

Here’s video of A-Rod coming up to Jennifer in the middle of an unnecessarily long red carpet interview. He surprises her and kisses her cheek. Skip ahead to the 2:40-minute mark to see the kiss. Controversial opinion: they are both equally into each other. Is that weird?

And here are some photos of J-Rod in Paris on Saturday:

    I do not think that Alex is Jennifer’s type, but she must have gotten tired of supporting pretty boys so she decided to compromise by dating someone with his own money even thought he may not be as young and handsome as her previous beau.

    • Chingona says:

      I didn’t really see Casper as handsome. In fact all of her boyfriends and husbands haven’t been handsome to me except her first husband.

    • No name says:

      Casper wasn’t good looking by any stretch…just eww. Jennifer Lopez always seems to date men that she’s either the better looking partner or wealthier or both. Alex Rodriguez is probably the only one that’s been on the same level as her since Ben Affleck. He’s not bad looking, he’s in great shape, has money, etc. His personality is icky but she only dates jerks with the exception of Chris Judd.

    • detritus says:

      I think she likes them fit, which is why I don’t think she’ll ever deal with Affleck again, and why she skews younger.
      I’m pretty sure ARod is already on a diet, he’s looking trimmer since they started.

      I mean, I don’t hate, she puts a ton of work into looking good, she probably expects something similar from her partners.

  2. Tig says:

    Le sigh- sounds like a dream vacay to me! Certainly hope she enjoys some fab French wine while yachting- she ain’t driving the boat😀-LOL.
    OT- check out Paris Can Wait. Written and directed by Eleanor Coppola(I know, I know-but she’s 81(?)), and stars Diane Lane. She is fab as always- and the scenery and food shots are to die for.

  3. Pumpkin Pie says:

    “How romantic” (as in those Blended movie scenes).

    • Velourazure says:

      Can someone buy ARod a shirt that fits? He looks like he’s about to bust out of it Hulk-style.

  4. Trishizle says:

    I can’t handle his shoes in those pics of them walking together. That’s all.

  5. Crumpet says:

    Oh, they are just perfect for each other. Just perfect.

  6. Seraphina says:

    I just want to take a shower after looking at A Rod. Not sure what it is but he gives me a grimy vibe. Good luck J.

  7. Karen says:

    No chemistry between these two. I spell faux relationship. I think ARod is doing a tv show and JLo needs to keep herself in the news She is no longer doing movies. She does a reality dance show and a few shows in Las Vegas.

    • Ann says:

      Her residency in Vegas has been very well reviewed, I don’t think she is hurting for money or attention.

      • Tiffany says:

        And her World of Dance show is very good. It is solid, summer fluff.

      • Karen says:

        Las Vegas residence gigs=big money not much prestige. Celine was first and did it for her family. The rest-Mariah, Brittany, Shania did the shows when career winding down.

        Same for reality shows. Making movies and top albums is where u get recognition.

    • detritus says:

      Did you watch the video?
      She’s into him, and he’s into her. They are doing that dorky smile when the other person walks in the room thing that is equal parts annoying and adorable.

      • Cherise says:

        Whats so special about that kiss? It just looked like a thing for the audience. These two are all for the camera. I mean I am sure they are actually dating but they are milking the attention for all its worth and thats probably why they are in this relationship.

      • detritus says:

        more her face afterward.

        At first she is bored AF, and done with the interview. After he comes and kisses her she’s all happy and tittery. Her entire face changes, and she visibly shakes that to get back to business. Him, he runs in to kiss her, and get embarassed? I’d have to watch again for him.

        Take this with the whole box of salt, because this is extreme armchair reading, but they look like they are in that first brush of love to me. Limerance I think its called.

  8. Angel says:

    I love her dressing style! 🕶👠👠👗👜

  9. Tiffany says:

    I like that dress Jennifer is wearing in the last photo. That is something that I can wear to work, although I could never rock the heel. I am kind of digging the purse as well.

    She is such a beautiful woman.

    • Amanduh says:

      So gorgeous!!! Her face is so beautiful.
      I’m 36 and have that scowl line in the middle of my brows…I noticed her frowning and some lines; anyone a Botox user? If I get my “1″ filled (not quite “11s” but I will be there soon!) can I still move my forehead?! I’d love to smooth it out and age like her…minus millions of dollars and tons of helpers.

  10. Skins says:

    Look at us, Look at us, dammit, LOOK AT US!!!!!!

  11. Twink says:

    How is her monokini unflattering? Seriously she hasn’t looked better!

    • schmootc says:

      Agreed – she looks fantastic in that suit. Can’t see how it’s unflattering at all!

  12. Adele Dazeem says:

    Call me crazy but I think this is a match made in heaven. I know I should be my usual skeptical negative self but I am totally sold on JRod.

  13. ValM99 says:

    Jlo is a woman who needs to find herself. She’s always dating, I haven’t seen this woman without a man since 1999. I feel like she’s very dependent on men to help her feel better about herself. Like she likes being treated, & claimed. Most women do but this seems tiresome. Their putting so much out there that if they break up it’s gonna be embarrassing. They’ve already introduced their kids to each other so I hope it works. Jlo needs a MAN- not a backup dancer or entertainer. But a man with his own money, success, taste & who won’t mind showing off with her. JLo been through a lot with past relationships (especially Ben & Mark) so may it work.
