To move on after a breakup, there are certain steps you need to take. So far, after officially splitting (opens in new tab) from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez in April 2021, Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed time alone (opens in new tab), seemingly indulged in some angsty Insta-scrolling (opens in new tab), and drowned her sorrows by making out (opens in new tab) with former ex (ex-ex?) Ben Affleck on a yacht in Europe. This weekend, J-Lo further buried her relationship with A-Rod (opens in new tab) in a way that we can all relate to: by unfollowing him on Instagram.

According to Page Six (opens in new tab), fans noticed the move on Aug. 14, also noting that photos of Lopez and Rodriguez together had all but vanished from the actress and singer's Instagram page. That said, the sleuths at Us Weekly (opens in new tab) pointed out that the former baseball player still features on his ex' Insta, just in a much more subtle way. Lopez has kept up several posts that include her kids as well as Rodriguez' kids—even if Rodriguez himself appears in them. Instead, she focused her efforts on deleting all photos of the two of them as a couple. Do what you need to do, I say.

Meanwhile, both exes were spotting living their best lives on opposite sides of the country the day after Lopez' deleting spree: J-Lo stepped out in Los Angeles with daughter Emme (opens in new tab). The star looked glamorous as ever in a silky, patterned three-piece co-ord and oversized sunglasses.

Rodriguez, who still follows Lopez on Instagram, was seen strolling around New York City in a suit and casually sipping on a cup of coffee.

As for J-Lo's relationship with Ben Affleck, it has been moving steadily forward. The two have been hanging out (opens in new tab) with their respective children, wearing symbolic jewelry (opens in new tab), inviting their famous friends (opens in new tab) on their dates, and possibly looking to move in together (opens in new tab).
