J.Lo is finally clearing up the rumors about what exactly was in the background of her workout selfie that went viral last week. 

In the photo, besides Lopez’s washboard abs, fans also noticed a creepy man in the background. Fans were spooked by the man’s expression and even theorized that Jennifer was holding someone hostage in her crib. Although E! News confirmed last week that the mystery man was a friend of Jennifer’s beau Alex Rodriguez and the two were on a Zoom call, the megastar herself cleared up the rumors in an interview Friday. 


Jennifer explained on Friday’s virtual episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that her fiance, Rodriguez, was on a Zoom call, adding that the couple don’t have their own full at-home gym. 

Fallon pointed out, “There’s a man behind you like this!” and motioned covering his mouth.

“Yeah, I don’t know what he was doing,” Lopez laughed and continued, “If he was sneezing or coughing…It was some real estate guy that Alex was on Zoom with. I don’t know. But we’ve been working out a lot.”

Earlier this month, frequent collaborator Fat Joe revealed that Irv Gotti and Ja Rule, the masterminds behind the smash hit “What’s Luv,” originally wanted to use J.Lo’s vocals on the track instead of Ashanti’s.
