The Daily Mail now reports that the same man was seen leaving the New York City Hotel, soon followed by a smiling Jennifer Lopez.
The hunky companion hid his identity behind a pair of shady glasses and a hat. A distinctive sign were his tattooed arms and chest.
The British tabloid wrote that he went shopping in the city and returned with an H&M bag.
Previously, Lopez had been linked to actor Bradley Cooper.
The American Idol judge has recently taken the top honor at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.
“It’s the women. Through the ups and the not so ups, that’s the one thing that got me through,” she said when accepting her award.
