Alex Rodriguez posts shirtless thirst quencher after dodging an awkward collision with J-Lo in St. Tropez

Alex Rodriguez showed off his muscular physique as he took an outdoor shower on a yacht around St. Tropez, in the ultimate thirst trap on Wednesday.

Just one day after ringing in his 46th birthday, the former New York Yankees showed off his incredibly ripped abs after getting really close to his ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez’s superyacht this week.

Unimpressed by the close conversation with the 52-year-old singer and her long-time boyfriend Ben Affleck, the father-of-two, wore black Nike swim shorts and watched you rinse under cold water.

Within minutes, he shared a video of him playing charades with his friends, including NFL star Eric Decker and his wife Jessie James Decker.

Rodriguez, who was frolicking with sports channel Melanie Collins during his trip to the French Riviera, filmed Jessie running on the deck of their rented cruise ship.

Almost immediately, someone suspected that the 33-year-old singer-songwriter was playing the movie Forrest Gump.

The retired athlete also posted a photo of his poolside dinner surrounded by friends, who dined on broccoli, grilled chicken, salad and more.

Rodriguez is celebrating his birthday tonight on his chartered Ocean Paradise yacht, which carries a dazzling price tag of €27,000,000 ($31,860,810) and can accommodate 12 guests and a further 12 crew members.

But that’s no match for Valerie van Lopez, currently priced at €110 million ($129,817,600), where Affleck and Mrs. Lopez reenacted steamy scenes from her 2002 music video Jenny from the Block on Sundays.

Jen’s leased 85-metre vessel Valerie was built by Lürssen in 2011 and underwent an extensive refit in 2019. It accommodates 17 guests in nine well-appointed cabins with room for a 27-person crew.

The Valerie has seven bedrooms spread over six decks for you to enjoy the journey, and the wellness theme continues with a steam room and even a Hamman, said to be decorated with mosaics – according to Boat International. There are also massage rooms and beauty treatment rooms.

A fitness room with panoramic ocean views opens out to an outdoor area with space for dining and a fountain that lights up at night.
