Jennifer Lopez gets closer to pal Lenny Kravitz as they film in the Dominican Republic


Jennifer Lopez and Lenny Kravitz appear to be strengthening their longtime friendship as they film Lionsgate’s Shotgun Wedding in the Dominican Republic. 

While the 51-year-old On The Floor singer continues to work ‘through some things’ with her fiancé Alex Rodriguez, four-time Grammy winner Lenny, 56, appears to  be a comforting presence for the star and her 13-year-old twins. 

Last month, it was revealed that the father of Zoë Kravitz would be starring opposite Lopez and Josh Duhamel in the action-comedy – and the stars have been seen on Instagram making the most of their downtime when cameras stop rolling.

Since joining the project, the pair have gotten very close and Lopez hinted she was a big fan of his work by posting a video of herself to the tune of his hit Fly Away. 

In the footage on her Instagram, the Hustlers actress can be seen relaxing to the track on the balcony of her hotel suite in a plunging white blouse.  

Lenny was also even seen giving his pal’s daughter Emme a one-on-one guitar lesson for the teen’s February 22 birthday.

While Emme played on a white Fender Stratocaster, her teacher played on a gorgeous burnt-orange Gibson Les Paul model.

The guitar is one of the most common and influential in rock and other genres, and it’s one the performer has gravitated to all throughout his career.

In the short video, Lenny has Emme strum a cord, only to pluck a string on her guitar to illustrate that her pinky was in the way of preventing one of the strings from sounding.

After they got the A chord under control, the two moved on to a D chord.

Proud mother Jennifer captioned the heartwarming video: ‘Bday lessons with Lenny.’

A source told the New York Post that Lopez ‘always says she hates being alone,’ suggesting that Lenny has proved to be good friendly company.

Over the years, Lenny has been pictured respectively with Lopez and A-Rod, who denied reports they have ended their two-year engagement.

On Saturday, the pair released a statement saying earlier reports of their split were ‘inaccurate’ and they are ‘working through some things,’ according to TMZ.

The Hollywood power couple, who began dating in 2017, were reported to have called off their two-year engagement just one day before.

The split allegations were widely reported by multiple news outlets, including Page Six and CNN, which cited close sources saying the couple had called it quits after the relationship had been on the rocks for some time.

Reports also claimed Rodriguez’s alleged relationship with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy, 30, was the reason behind the break up.

Rodriguez’s links to reality star first came to light during a Southern Charm reunion in January when LeCroy was accused of having been in contact with a ‘married’ and ex-MLB player in Miami whose name had been bleeped out.

She later admitted in an interview she had been communicating with Rodriguez but insisted their exchanges were ‘innocent.’ Reps for Rodriguez claimed the pair had never even met.

In the wake of the reports Friday, LeCroy’s co-star Shep Rose also claimed LeCroy had signed a non-disclosure agreement, suggesting some damage control may have been done following their alleged communication.

‘I know that there was, like, an NDA signed, which doesn’t seem to mean anything anymore, not worth the price of the paper they’re printed on,’ Rose told UsWeekly .

‘It’s crazy and, you know, mixed emotions about it because I think our show started as fairly normal, humble people … your average small-town, Southern people. 

Meanwhile, Rodriguez has insisted he wasn’t in mourning over his four-year relationship with J.Lo, claiming that they are still very much together.

In a video clip obtained by DailyMail.com, the MLB legend was heard telling a passerby that he is ‘not’ single, despite reports emerging on Friday that the couple had broken up.

It’s believed he was on the phone to Lopez at the time, as he was heard saying: ‘Hold on let me call you right back, babe’.

Lopez and Rodriguez began dating in 2017 and announced their engagement in March 2019 during a getaway to the Bahamas where the athlete surprised her with a large diamond ring.

Lopez revealed late last year that they were forced to postpone their wedding twice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the relationship nonetheless appeared to be going strong, with the two even splashing out on a $32.5million home in Miami in August.

The pop star’s children had become very close to Rodriguez’s two daughters, Natasha, 14, and ten-year-old Ella, whom he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez.

In 2018, Jennifer gushed their little ones ‘have become best friends’ and said she and Rodriguez ‘couldn’t have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do.’

The last time Lopez and Rodriguez posted a photo together on social media was last month in the Dominican Republic.

‘They haven’t seen each other since then. There have been issues in their relationship for a while now,’ an insider told People.

‘They are tied in their business worlds so it’s not a cut and dry break up. It’s taken a while for them to even think about untangling it all.’

On Friday, Jennifer video-called her ex-husband Marc Anthony and their crying daughter Emme, 13, following news of the split.

The singer split from ex Marc in 2011 after seven years of marriage and they filed for divorce in April 2012, they share twins Emme and Max.
