The eagle-eyed fans of hitmaker Jenny from the Block saw something sinister in Saturday’s photo: a man seemingly hiding in the background.

Some of her more conspiracy-focused followers even joked that the 50-year-old singer and actress seemed to be holding the mysterious man hostage.

Jennifer beamed from her workout in the photo, wearing a camouflage Niyama Sol sports bra that revealed her chiseled abs and strong biceps.

But aside from the standard gym equipment, her fans saw a man’s face outside the window behind her and just over her shoulder.

“Why is there a man in the background with a hand over his mouth?” asked a user.

The man, who had a bald or shaved head, seemed to be wearing a face mask just under his nose.

While it may have made it easier for him to breathe while exercising, the mask’s folds looked like someone’s fingers from far away, as if holding a hand over his mouth.

In reality, he probably did sit-ups just behind the window, which would explain his position and the expression on his face.

However, it was not clear who the man was, and perhaps he was a trainer who stayed with J-Lo, or just someone who was visiting for a workout with the star.
