Alex Rodriguez recently called his failed romance with Jennifer Lopez "incredible," but that was before she deleted him from her Instagram.

Just hours after it was revealed that The Let's Get Loud hitmaker had eclipsed all evidence of her former fiancé from social media, A-Rod took to his own Instagram to make a bold statement.

His expletive riddled caption was along the lines of, "I'm here to mess things up," and fans rushed to compliment him on his confidence and his appearance. 

Although Alex didn't elaborate on the meaning of his message, it was likely to be work related since he's thrown himself into his career as Jennifer has fallen back into the arms of her ex, Ben Affleck

The couple were forced to postpone their 2020 wedding due to the pandemic having planned to tie the knot in a ceremony in Italy last June, but then announced their separation in April this year, having previously denied split rumours that had been circulating around the media.

Jennifer and Alex were together for five years

At the time, they said in a joint statement via Today: "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 to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support."
