Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez hit the Hamptons’ hottest party of the summer, Saturday’s Apollo in the Hamptons benefit, and canoodled through performances by Justin Timberlake and Mavis Staples, among others.
J.Lo, looking stunning in a short, glittering Zuhair Murad romper, cozied up to A-Rod, dancing and sharing regular kisses, as a host of stars took to the stage at the benefit for Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater.
Rodriguez told us as they left together around midnight, “We are really happy. Jennifer is a wonderful person.” She added that they’d enjoyed the event, but the highlight for her had been gospel singer Staples, who brought down the house with “I’ll Take You There” and “Let’s Do It Again.” The couple has been dating since February and has become inseparable.
