Alex Rodriguez has rented the Hamptons mansion which is just a mile from Jennifer Lopez’s home.
Rodriguez who is popularly called A-Rod reportedly rented a $5 million mansion in Bridgehampton this summer while he continues to look at property to buy in Manhattan and in the Hamptons.
Rodriguez’s summer place is just over a mile from Lopez’s $10 million spread in Water Mill, where the former couple spent last summer with their kids.
The former Yankees slugger was spotted on Friday night dining with staffers from his company A-Rod Corp at Sag Harbor restaurant Le Bilboquet.
A witness said, “Alex had a long dinner on Friday with two women and his nephew Nick Silva. A very attractive brunette at his table turned some heads at the packed restaurant, with some wondering if she was Alex’s new girlfriend.”
But other sources say the brunette is Liz Cohen, a business development manager at A-Rod Corp, and they are not romantically involved.
Rodriguez, 45, and his group stayed late into the night at the restaurant, which overlooks Sag Harbor Marina, leaving around 11 p.m., according to witnesses. Others spotted at Le Bilboquet on Friday included PR mogul Ronn Torossian, Modell’s Sporting Goods honcho Mitch Modell and entrepreneur Mazen Dayem.
Lopez and Rodriguez during their engagement, spent some of the summer season together at the Water Mill mansion she purchased in 2013. It was custom-built at 8,500 square feet and sits on over three acres with a large pool.
Now A-Rod has rented a 9,200-square-foot, seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom home on 3.9 acres in Bridgehampton. It boasts a heated gunite pool and spa, waterfall and direct access to a pond. He posted an Instagram video of himself shooting a basketball outside the house on Thursday.
It is just 1.2 miles — a three-minute drive — from Lopez’s home.
But the 51-year-old singer has not yet been spotted in the Hamptons this summer season. She has been instead packing on the PDA with Ben Affleck in Malibu and Los Angeles.
