Before red carpets came to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rodriguez was at his fiancée's side to support her at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she was nominated for her supporting role in Hustlers. It was the pair's final formal red carpet before their split, which PEOPLE confirmed on March 12, 2021. "This has been a long time coming," a source told PEOPLE.

However, on March 13, the pair released a statement to PEOPLE saying they are "working through some things."

"They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up," a source close to the pair told PEOPLE.

On April 15, the pair made things final in a statement to PEOPLE.

"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. 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. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support," the statement read.

Lopez had a golden glow about her as she and Rodriguez hit the Golden Globes red carpet on Jan. 5, 2020.

Even though her performance in Hustlers didn't win the award for best supporting actress in a motion picture, her then-fiancé reminded her that "it doesn't take a trophy, medal, or plaque to identify a true champion."

"To millions of young women who have watched you and have been inspired and empowered to do amazing things in their lives, you are a champion," he wrote in his encouraging message on Instagram.

"To everyone whose lives you enrich daily, you are a champion. And don't you ever forget it," he concluded along with three heart emojis.

Her playful purse may only be worth $10,000, but the "Dinero" singer and Rodriguez looked like a million bucks at the Hustlers premiere during the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

Is there anything J. Lo hasn't won an award for? The multi-hyphenate entertainer was honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in June 2019, and naturally showed up dressed to impress (and to make us wonder how many crunches we'd need to do to get abs like that).

Understandably, Rodriguez couldn't take his eyes off her either. "The 🔥 of my 👁," he wrote on Instagram. "There are icons…but there is only one Jennifer Lopez, ladies and gentlemen. #CFDA."
