J.Lo and A-Rod got engaged in March 2019 after dating for two years

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have split.

The Latino power couple called off their engagement after two years of being together, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE Friday.

“This has been a long time coming,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They are tied in their business worlds so it’s not a cut and dry break up. It’s taken a while for them to even think about untangling it all.”

The two were last seen on March 1 in the Dominican Republic where she’s shooting a film. The New York Post‘s Page Six was the first to report the news.

Earlier on Friday, the former New York Yankee shared a solo selfie atop a boat.

“Don’t mind me, just taking a sail-fie ⛵️,” he wrote. “What are your plans for the weekend?”

Lopez, 51, and Rodriguez, 45, got engaged in the Bahamas in March 2019 after dating for two years.

Over the past year, the couple has spent time at home during the pandemic with their blended families — Lopez’s 13-year-old twins Maximilian “Max” David and Emme Maribel with Marc Anthony and the former MLB player’s daughters Ella, 12, and Natasha, 16, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.

Last month, speculation arose that Rodriguez had had an affair after Southern Charm‘s Madison LeCroy was accused of sleeping with a married MLB player. However, a source told PEOPLE then that the two had “never met.” It’s unclear if J-Rod’s split has anything to do with the LeCroy rumors.

Back in January, Lopez opened up about having to postpone the couple’s wedding twice due to the pandemic.

“We postponed the wedding twice. We had planned what we really, really wanted to do, [but] I don’t know if we’ll be able to re-create that,” the “In the Morning” singer told Elle. “We canceled it, and since then we haven’t really talked about it. There’s no rush. We want to do it right when we can do it.”
