Jessica Canseco has shut down claims made by her ex-husband that Alex Rodriguez has been ‘cheating’ on fiancée Jennifer Lopez with her.

Earlier this week, former baseball player Jose Canseco accused Rodriguez of “cheating on [Lopez] with my ex-wife Jessica” in a string of inflammatory tweets, posted shortly after the singer confirmed her engagement on social media.

46-year-old author Jessica quickly denied the allegations, describing them as “not true.”

“Those false accusations Jose is making are not true,” she wrote on Twitter.

“I have known Alex for many years and haven’t even seen him for over 5. I certainly did not sleep with him. I am friendly with both him and Jennifer. As for Jose he can keep playing with his Alien friends.”

She went on to reveal that she re-downloaded the Twitter app specifically in order to dispel the rumours.

“In fact I don’t even get on Twitter had to download app again and don’t watch TV and had no idea any of this was going on,” she wrote.

“Last time I saw Alex he was with Torrie [Wilson] and I brought my boyfriend over for dinner. We are just friends my god.”

Rodriguez and Lopez have been in a relationship since 2017, and announced their engagement last week when they shared identical photos of the singer showing off a huge diamond ring.

Shortly after the announcement, Jose fired off a series of tweets in which he claimed that Lopez “has no idea who [her fiancé] really is.”

“Watching World of Dance watching J.Lo text Alex Rodriguez little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica poor girl she has no idea who he really is,” he wrote.

“I was there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone. Alex Rodriguez stop being a piece of s*** stop cheating on Jennifer Lopez.”

The newly engaged couple are yet to comment on the cheating claims.

Yesterday, they shared images of the moment that Rodriguez proposed during a luxurious trip to the Bahamas, which showed the sports pundit getting down on one knee on the beach.
