Mystery Man In JLo Selfie Revealed & We Are Relieved

The internet was abuzz last week with a picture of JLo post-workout. Instead of going gaga over her well toned body, which is what we were doing, the Twitterati zoomed in close and found a strange man in the mirror.

Not just that, the internet found a hand over the man’s face in the picture, “Why is there a man in the background with a hand over his mouth?” commented one Instagram user. Without any surprise this whole situation was named #JLoGate.

So to clear the air, JLo got on Jimmy Fallon’s show — ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’. They got chatting and then Fallon approached the very inevitable topic, “There was a whole thing that went on, on Instagram because you posted a photo of you in the gym, which I love because you’ve gotta get out there, do something, workout.” Yes here it is, “But then, in the corner of your thing, people were frightened because there was a man behind you in a window with his hand over his mouth.”

JLo jumped in immediately and responded, “That was a Zoom! So imagine, I’m back there working out because where we have the Zoom set up is right by our garage. And we didn’t have a gym in the house, so we got a bench and a few weights, and I have my rehearsal mirrors back there for dance rehearsal.”

Fallon exclaims, “There’s a man behind you like this!”

“It was some real estate guy that Alex was on Zoom with,” she said, explaining that she doesn’t know what he was doing — maybe coughing or sneezing. Alex, her fiancé is a former baseball star and they are looking forward to their up coming nuptials JLo says. But of course, like the rest of us their life is on a bit of a hold too.
