Alex Rodriguez has made an awkward joke about being single as ex Jennifer Lopez looks smitten in new photos with her rekindled flame Ben Affleck.
The former MBL star made the cringe-worthy comment on live TV as he was covering the American League Division Series on Fox Sports in the US.
As footage aired of baseball players from Tampa Bay Rays chilling before a game and eating popcorn, Rodriguez's co-anchor Kevin Burkhardt quipped, "It's not the first time people had been eating popcorn in the middle of the game."

At that moment, a throwback clip of Rodriguez's then-girlfriend Cameron Diaz hand-feeding him popcorn at the 2010 Super Bowl played on screens. The former New York Yankee dated the actress from 2010 to 2011.
"KB, that's maybe why I'm single," joked Miami-based Rodriquez, who briefly dated Diaz from 2010 to 2011.
Meanwhile, in New York, Lopez — who split from Rodriguez in April after four years together — walked the red carpet with Affleck for the premiere of his film The Last Duel.
The singer and actress then moved to the side of the stage to give her boyfriend the limelight, where she looked on lovingly from the wings.
"Red carpet magic 🪄 ✨ #TheLastDuel premiere NYC 🎥," she captioned the photos.

As for Diaz, Rodriguez' other ex, the actress has happily retreated from the spotlight to focus on her marriage to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden and their one-year-old daughter, Raddix.
She recently opened up about their first meeting last month on Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast.
"I saw him walking towards me and I was like, 'Huh, he's hot, I haven't seen him before,'" Diaz, 49, said of 42-year-old Madden, her husband of six years.
"But then when I saw him, like who he was, that's what made me really be like, 'Oh you, you're special, you're the guy, you're the hidden gem in my life.'"
