They have been on, off, and on again but Alex Rodriguez has confirmed he and Cameron Diaz have broken up.

“I have a lot of love for Cameron,” A-Rod, 36, told People about the actress, 39. “We’ll always be friends.”

The couple dated for about a year and a half and mutually decided to end things. This past summer while promoting Bad Teacher, Cameron, who remains tight-lipped on her personal life, did reveal she loved her baseball beau:

“We were watching the game, and I was eating, and I was getting down to, like, the last couple pieces of popcorn, and all of a sudden, I see a hand coming in. And I’m like – anybody who knows me does not put their hand in my food, especially when it’s close to my mouth. And I said, ‘What are you…?’ And then I went, ‘You know what? I love you too much, I’m going to give it to you. You deserve it.’

Now that these two are officially over, who do you think they should hook up with next?
