Alex Rodriguez posts shirtless thirst trap after dodging an awkward run-in with J-Lo in St. Tropez


Alex Rodriguez flaunted his buff physique, while taking an outdoor shower on a yacht around St. Tropez, in the ultimate thirst trap on Wednesday.

Just one day after ringing in his 46th birthday, the former New York Yankees put his incredibly ripped abs on full display after he was pictured getting very close to his ex-fiancé Jennifer Lopez’s super-yacht this week.

Looking unfazed by the close call with the 52-year-old singer and her on-again boyfriend Ben Affleck, the father-of-two sported a pair of black Nike swim shorts and could be seen rinsing off under some cold water.

Within minutes, he shared a video of himself playing charades with his pals, including NFL star Eric Decker and his wife Jessie James Decker.  

Rodriguez, who has been cavorting with sports broadcaster Melanie Collins on his trip to the French Riviera, filmed Jessie running on the deck of their rented cruise liner. 

Almost immediately someone correctly guessed the singer-songwriter, 33, was acting out the film Forrest Gump.

The retired athlete also posted a snap of his dinner by the pool, surrounded by friends, who dined on broccoli, grilled chicken, salad and more.

Rodriguez is celebrating his birthday tonight on his rented Ocean Paradise yacht, which has an eye-watering price tag of €27,000,000 ($31,860,810) and can hold 12 guests and another 12 crew.

Yet that is no match for Lopez’s Valerie, currently priced at €110,000,000 ($129,817,600) where on Sunday, Affleck and Ms Lopez were seen recreating steamy scenes from her 2002 music video Jenny from the Block.

Jen’s rented 85-metre vessel Valerie was built by Lürssen in 2011 and underwent an extensive refit in 2019. It can accommodate 17 guests in nine well-appointed cabins with space for a 27-strong crew.

The Valerie boasts seven bedrooms across six decks on which to enjoy the voyage, and the theme of wellness runs throughout with a steam room and even a Hamman, said to be decorated with mosaics – according to Boat International. There are also massage rooms and spaces for beauty treatments.

A gym with a panoramic view of the ocean opens out onto an outdoor space with room for dining and a fountain that lights up at night.
