Jennifer Lopez has finally set the record straight about that mysterious gym selfie

The singer and actress, who has kept active in quarantine, hoped to encourage her fans to focus on their own fitness when she posted a snapshot of herself in workout gear on Instagram earlier this month. 

Much of the buzz around the photo, however, focused on what appeared to be a man’s face in the background, positioned just above J-Lo’s shoulder.

Appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last week, Jen revealed that the man in question was actually someone having a virtual conversation with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez.

“That was a Zoom,” she said. “Where we have the Zoom set up is right by our garage. We didn’t have a gym in the house, so we got a bench and a few weights, and I have my rehearsal mirrors back there for dance rehearsal.”

As for the mystery man’s identity, Jen shrugged and explained: “It was some real estate guy Alex was on Zoom with.”

With most of Hollywood shut down due to the coronavirus, Jennifer’s career still remains in high gear. On Tuesday night, she returns as a judge for Season 4 of the US competition series World of Dance

Though she and Alex had planned to wed this summer, the pandemic has driven the couple to call off their nuptials for now. 

But she remains optimistic.

“There’s no planning right now,” she told the Today show on Tuesday morning. “I’m a little heartbroken because we did have some great plans, but I’m also like, you know what, God has a bigger plan. So we just have to wait and see. Maybe it’s going to be better. I have to believe that it will be.”
