Cynthia Rodriguez, filing for divorce
star Alex Rodriguez will soon be a free agent on the love
market, after wife Cynthia Rodriguez heads towards Miami court
today to file for divorce from A-Rod. Various reports for a
divorce of Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez started coming out on
Sunday night and continue well into Monday, but all seem to have
a few basic patterns: Cynthia Rodriguez will file for divorce
from A-Rod on Monday in Miami court, claiming that the A-Rod -
Madonna affair was the last straw in a string of Alex Rodriguez
flings. "The embarrassment over Madonna was the last straw.
She flew to Paris to get out of town before everything blew up
between them. There is no affair with Lenny Kravitz. They are
good friends," a source close to the Rodriguez family was
quoted on numerous occasions. And according to Rodriguez’s
former trainer Dodd Romero, now godfather to the couple's two
daughters, Cynthia Rodriguez is certain that A-Rod has been
"brainwashed" by Madonna and lured away from his family.
The focus of the divorce will likely
cover the custody of their two children, as well as the
financial aspect. A prenup was signed by A-Rod's wife, however,
Cynthia Rodriguez's lawyer is promising a "huge settlement" as a
result of the divorce. "She has reached the end of her
ability to tolerate his continued marital misconduct. As a
baseball player, the guy's terrific. This is the game of real
life, and that's where he's not going to make the all-star team.
As a parent and as a husband, he's not going to get voted in,"
Cynthia Rodriguez's lawyer Earle Lilly added. The upcoming A-Rod
divorce will certainly be one of the most publicized this year
and could turn into a nasty one, some celebrity watchers
predict. Odds on Alex Rodriguez' divorce are expected shortly
after the papers are filed.
Although the alleged A-Rod's affair with
pop star Madonna may have been the last straw for Cynthia
Rodriguez, it certainly is not the only one. The serious trouble
began last year when A-Rod was photographed with stripper Joslyn
Noel Morse entering a Toronto, Canada strip club. Back then a
stripper at the Hustler Club by the stage name Monique said that
she also knows Alex Rodriguez, but added "I don't want to get
him in anymore trouble than he's already in." The Daily News
claimed at the time that A-Rod is known for texting strippers
with dirty messages. Following the A-Rod stripper scandal,
rumors immediately surfaced that his wife Cynthia Rodriguez was
packing her bags and leaving the baseball player, after Cynthia
was seen leaving their apartment with two suitcases in hands. At
the time the couple appeared to have worked thing out, but along
came Madonna, sending Cynthia Rodriguez straight to the
Miami-Dade County Family Court with divorce papers in her hand.
