Alex Rodriguez was spotted hanging out with Ben Affleck’s ex Lindsay Shookus at her birthday party on Saturday, a video obtained by Page Six reveals.
In the clip, Rodriguez, 45, is seated right beside Shookus, 41, at an intimate backyard gathering in the Hamptons as Josh Beckerman, known as the ‘Foodie Magician’, performs a magic routine for the Saturday Night Live producer’s guests.
The timing of Shookus and A-Rod’s hangout sparks interest given that their respective exes Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance continues to heat up.
However, we’re told the pair are longtime pals and nothing more.
A rep for Rodriguez told Page Six: “There is absolutely zero there,” adding, “They’ve been friends for 15 years.”
The video was first posted to Beckerman’s Instagram Stories with the message, “Happy bday @shookushookus!” Shookus’ birthday is June 18.
The sighting was then shared by the blind-items Instagram account @deuxmoi.
In the video, Shookus is dressed in a black halter top and a black and white patterned skirt. Meanwhile, the former New York Yankee, who appears to have been distracted by his phone, wears a summer-friendly all-white look.
Shookus and Affleck, 48, dated off and on from 2017 to 2019. Lopez, 51, broke off her engagement with Rodriguez earlier this year after dating since 2017 following cheating allegations about the retired MLB star.
In December 2019, Shookus was even spotted having dinner with Rodriguez and Lopez. They went out to eat with SNL cast members ahead of JLo’s hosting gig.
Although Lopez has moved on from her relationship with Rodriguez with another former fiance, it appears the sportscaster is still very much on the market.
Rodriguez recently rented a new mansion in the Hamptons, where he was seen dining Friday with a mystery brunette. We’re told, however, that she is just his business partner.
Shookus did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
