The former professional baseball is reportedly still reeling from their split, which was announced last month, and is ‘sore’ about being dumped by the 51-year-old songstress and seeing her reconcile with her former flame, sources say.

‘Alex is still very sore and in a world of pain,’ a source tells UsWeekly this week.

‘It’s the first time anyone can remember him being dumped like this, at least publicly. Seeing her running straight back to Ben’s arms is a real kick in the teeth,’ the insider adds.

The MLB icon is still hoping for a reconciliation but is trying to accept the ‘harsh truth’.

‘It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality.’ the source adds.

A-Rod, 45, and J.Lo were together for four years and engaged for two of them.

In mid-April they released a statement, after weeks of rumors, to say they were ending their engagement. 

Later the same month it was being reported that Lopez and Affleck were spending time together in Los Angeles.

They also took a trip together earlier this month to Big Sky, Montana.

Meanwhile, Lopez has reportedly flown back to LA to spend more time with on-again beau Affleck, 48, as the former supercouple are ‘committed’ to making things work.

On Thursday, a source told PEOPLE that Lopez had returned to LA to spend more time with Affleck reuniting once again earlier this week.

‘Jennifer was just in Los Angeles for a couple of days,’ a source told the publication. ‘She spent time with Ben. They have kept in touch every day since their Montana trip.’

The source went on to claim the pair are navigating a long-distance relationship, saying: ‘It’s a tricky situation since they live so far from each other, but they both seem committed to making things work.’

The Waiting For Tonight singer is said to be happy about the reunion, with the source adding: ‘Jennifer is doing well. She seems very happy and excited about her future.’
