Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have announced they are staying together.
"We are working through some things," they said in a joint statement obtained by PEOPLE.
"They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up," a source close to the pair tells PEOPLE. The source added that the speculation that arose last month that Rodriguez had had an affair after Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy "had no bearing on the rough patch at all. "
"She's working in the Dominican Republic and he's in Miami so it's tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID," the source adds of Lopez and Rodriguez, "but they want to try to stay together."
A separate insider says, "This was not caused by a third party. Madison [LeCroy] or anyone else. They are working through things."
The announcement came hours after multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Lopez, 51, and Rodriguez, 45, had split.
