Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have not given up their quest to become owners of the New York Mets, according to a report.

Despite news that Steve Cohen has emerged as the favorite to win the bid for the Mets, the celebrity couple remain interested.

"It ain't over until it is over," Lopez said. "We are New Yorkers and we are not going to give up. We feel we have the best bid for the sport, the team and the city."
