Steve Cohen won’t let J-Rod live down their failed bid to purchase the Mets.
During Jennifer Lopez’s performance at Sunday’s American Music Awards, Entertainment Weekly tweeted, “Is there anything @Jlo can’t do?” to which the new Mets owner responded a day later, “I’ll give you a hint, it’s a team in NY.”
Cohen beat out Lopez and fiancé Alex Rodriguez to buy the Mets in a months-long battle that ended with the hedge-fund billionaire securing the team from the Wilpon family last month for $2.4 billion.
The 64-year-old Cohen also appeared to jab the star-studded couple during his introductory news conference this month.
When asked about the other bidders, the lifelong Mets fan and Long Island native responded with a grin, “Who are the other bidders? I don’t remember.”
He later wished Lopez and Rodriguez well.
