If anyone expected abusive words and scandals, it was not in Alex’s speech, but the former baseball player only said that he was “grateful” for the lessons he had learned during their relationship.
“I spent five years in a wonderful life and partnership, and my daughters and I learned a lot. Now we have the opportunity to go further and say, ‘We are very grateful for the past five years, but we have also learned good lessons and what we can do to make the next five years even better.'”, he told Entertainment Tonight.
Asked what he thought of Jennifer’s quick reconciliation with Ben and their very public relationship that ran through the media immediately after the announcement of their breakup with Alex, he skillfully avoided answering and said:
“I am very grateful for where God and the light have put me and I am really looking forward to the future. Most of all to see how my girls will develop.”, he added.

Although Alex doesn’t have bad words for JLO and says that he has learned his lesson, it does not mean that she wants to keep the memories of the past five years with him.
Fans have noticed that over the weekend she deleted all photos with him on social media.
