The couples were in a process of In Vitro and wife like girlfriend Leila was totally determined to have twin daughters for which she decided to kick out the ‘Y’ chromosomes. She decided this so that because she did not want to have dittos of Jose. However, before any of that could happen, Leila dumped Jose.

The infuriated actress who had merciless swears on her lips said TMZ on Nov 2014, 

"I broke up with Jose and am leaving him for good."

Jos also cleared the breakup saying, 

"Leila and I have gone our separate ways. check back later and find out what happened."

The couple who got engaged in 2013 separated just a month after Jose fired a gun in 2014 and shot himself in the finger which nearly got Leila.

Jose Canseco got divorced two times and two of the divorce cost him about $7-$8 million dollars. That might also be the reason for him having a net worth of around $500 thousand dollars. He explained his financial circle to CBS News in order to clear out things. He said,

"You know my life, this financial thing, is a very complicated issue. Obviously, when you make all that money, people think, `OK, let's assume it is $35 million.' People have to understand that $35 million, you're paying the government 41 percent. That leaves you with about $17 or $18 million, not even. Then you're taking care of your whole family."

His five relationships include his girlfriend Jessica Sekely and Heidi Northcott.
