Alex Rodriguez may have not gotten the girl, but he did collect the $6 million check.
The 46-year-old former New York Yankee has sold the Miami home he bought during his engagement to Jennifer Lopez. According to reports, A-Rod offloaded the canal-front property in Bay Point for a record price.
The ex-professional pitcher plunked down $5.5 million for the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home on April 9 when he was still planning to marry J. Lo. After their wedding plans came to an abrupt halt later that month, A-Rod put the property back on sale.
The home hit the market on April 26, nearly 10 days after the duo confirmed their breakup.
After struggling to sell it, A-Rod finally got a bite. The gorgeous 3,100 square feet home sold on December 6 for $6.3 million, landing the single stud almost $1 million over his buying price.
The house reportedly shattered records, making it the highest waterfront sale in Bay Point’s history.
He kept it all in the family too. A-Rod's sister and real estate agent, Arlene Susy Dunand of Coldwell Banker Realty, reportedly represented him in the sale.
While A-Rod bought the Miami home as an investment property, the timing of it all was interesting.
On April 15, J. Lo and A-Rod released a joint statement announcing the end of their two-year engagement. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the pair told NBC’s “Today.” “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.”
Of course, J. Lo raised some eyebrows when her other ex-fiancé Ben Affleck was caught sneaking out of her Los Angeles home around the same time.
Despite their bitter split, J. Lo and A-Rod still own property in Miami together. They bought a sprawling $32.5 million Miami Beach estate located on Star Island in August 2020.
Both of their names are still listed under the ownership, reports The New York Post.
