As Jennifer Lopez continues to spend time with her former flame Ben Affleck, her ex Alex Rodriguez is moving on too – but the baseball star appears to be just moving house.

The sportsman was spotted visiting apartments in an upmarket area of New York City over the weekend as he reportedly looks for a bachelor pad following his split from the singer.

One of the Manhattan buildings he visited also happens to be the exclusive address where Katie Holmes lives with her daughter Suri Cruise.

Alex has been single since April when he and J-Lo called off their engagement, while Katie has recently split from restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr.

But a source tells the New York Post's Page Six column that Alex and Katie haven't quite crossed paths yet.

"Alex is looking at lots of different apartments, he didn’t even realise it was Katie’s building – he’s never met her," the insider said.

As Alex continues to hunt for the perfect new home, Jennifer has been busy rekindling her romance with ex Ben.

The pair were pictured sharing a kiss over dinner at a restaurant in Malibu, California over the weekend.

Ben had gone to a family get together to celebrate Jennifer's sister Linda's 50th birthday.

They were even joined by J-Lo's children, 13-year-old twins Max and Emme, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

J-Lo seems very committed to Ben as she has reportedly been looking at schools in Los Angeles last week amid rumours she plans to move her family to the city where Ben is based.

The singer currently lives in Miami, Florida with her two children.

"J-Lo was tooling around with her trusty notepad, after spending time with Ben at his home on the Westside of L.A.

"Jennifer’s children have been doing their schooling out of Miami in recent years," a source told TMZ.

"Prior to the pandemic her twins, Max and Emme, attended in-person classes and obviously went virtual when the pandemic hit."

Jennifer wants her kids to feel comfortable and they are her "priority" amid her new romance.

The insider said: "She has to ensure that she is taking her children into account. They are her priority."

Jennifer's mum Guadalupe Rodríguez is said to be thrilled the couple – who got engaged in the early 2000s – are back together.

A source told People : "In the past, Jennifer’s mom and Ben were very close.

"Guadalupe loved Ben. She was sad when they couldn’t work things out years ago."
