ARod claims his two daughters 'sent the Instagram message' to married TV host Belinda Russell after she exposed him
Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez claims that his two daughters "sent the Instagram message" to married TV host Belinda Russell after she exposed him.
The private message follows the retired sportsman's split from his ex-fiancée Jennifer "JLo" Lopez.
The former ballplayer claims the private message to Belinda came from his daughters who are "are big fans" of the TV star's, according to his rep who revealed it to E! News.
A-Rod shares daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, with his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis;
Belinda, 42, an Australian journalist and a host of Today Extra, shared that A-Rod, 45, slid into her Instagram DM's to compliment her TikTok.
On Friday she claimed to her co-host Richard Wilkins, saying: "I woke up this morning, checking the socials and in my requests there was a message from Alex Rodriguez… As in A-Rod. As in J.Lo's ex."
According to the screengrab she shared with her co-host and producers, A-Rod had written: "Great feed!!"
His comment was a response to a video of her dancing in the Channel 9 studios.
"All I can say is…he likes great content, Dickie," she joked.
Belinda, who has three children with her husband Mark Calvert, clarified that she thought it wasn't a flirty comment.
She added: "He just likes my videos. I'm very happily married."
The claim comes after A-Rod’s JLo was said to be dating former flame Ben Affleck again.
A-Rod sliding into Belinda's DM's comes after he was reported to be in a "world of pain" at the reunion between Ben and JLo, and lives in hope he'll get back together with the singer.
The ex big leaguer was shocked when he found out that the actress had appeared to have moved on with her ex of 18 years ago.
JLo and Ben are believed to have reignited a romance that began in 2002, after meeting on the film Gigli in 2002.
They got engaged but postponed their wedding three days before in September 2003 and split four months later.
A source told US Weekly: “Alex is still very sore and in a world of pain.
“It’s the first time anyone can remember him being dumped like this, at least publicly.”
JLo and Ben were reportedly reunited in Los Angeles this week after their Montana getaway.
The insider said: “Seeing her running straight back to Ben’s arms is a real kick in the teeth.
“There’s a part of him that still clings onto the hope that they’ll wind up together again but deep down he’s had to accept the harsh truth that she’s over him and moving on with Ben.
"It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality.”
JLo, A-Rod, and Ben have children with previous partners.
JLo and her ex husband, Marc Anthony, share 13-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Meanwhile, Ben and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner share three children, Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.
