Here’s why a random man was 'hiding' in the background of Jennifer Lopez’s workout selfie

The Editors

From Cosmopolitan

  • Jennifer Lopez posted a workout selfie on Instagram, and a random man was spotted in the background.
  • The explanation is actually less creepy than you’d think.

Now that we’re all cooped up in the house thanks to quarantine, we all have a sh*t ton of time on our hands to obsess over the teeniest details of celebrities lives, because really - what else are we doing with this extra time? Case in point: Jennifer Lopez posted a post-workout mirror selfie to Instagram, but fans in the comments couldn’t help but notice there was something a *little* disturbing in the background.

In the pic, Jennifer wrote, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you,” like a true fit-fluencer. But instead of being inspired by J.Lo’s choice of words, people saw there was a man who low-key looked like he was peeping in her window.

Creepy, right? Well, there is actually a fully logical explanation for this. According to an E! News source, this man who looks like he’s spying on J.Lo is actually on a call with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, in a different room.

"Their office is attached to a gym and is separated by curtains from their office space," the source explained. "When they are doing a Zoom, they project it onto a big screen.”

"If you look closely, you can see Alex’s arm in a navy blue shirt. He’s sitting in front of their desk, with the big screen on it, so the image of the person you’re seeing is who is on his Zoom call," the source added. "That man was covering his mouth with his hand."

Looks like this mystery has officially been solved!
