It’s Official: A-Rod and C-Rod Strike Out

Posted by thelanetrain on July 7, 2008

Good news everyone!  Grinding those gears at the rumor mill actually works!  According to the New York Daily News, Cynthia Rodriguez officially filed for divorce today in Miami, citing infidelity and “numerous extramarital affairs” as the chief reasons for seeking a split from her slugger husband.  While Madonna is not explicitly mentioned in the divorce papers, one can only imagine that last week’s screaming headlines from the New York Newsbloids probably lended a hand in the divorce filing, oh and that affair with the hooker too.

After The Jump: More details on the divorce, plus a special message from Madge

After being last week’s talk of the town, it seems that the Rodriguezes will be facing a lot of press in the next few weeks.  First, the sports world is simply going nuts for A-Rod’s recent record-tying home run on Sunday night against the Red Sox, which puts A-Rod as the 13th greatest home run hitter of all time, tied with Mickey Mantle (but still twelve slots behind Steroid McJuicer).  But now the focus will be shifting from the American pasttime to the American legal system, as A-Rod and Cynthia will be battling it out in Miami-Dade Family court for the custody of their children, and A-Rod’s millions of dollars in endorsements and sports contracts.

Madonna, who has been caught in the crossfire after last week’s reportings of multiple trysts between her and the Yankees’ star, has vehemently denied being the cause of their divorce.  As the Daily News article reports:

News from the dueling divorce camps came on a day when pop icon Madonna adamantly denied she broke up Rodriguez’s marriage by using kabbalah to brainwash the slugger into believing they are soul mates.

Wow, that’s almost as pathetic as Robert Blake’s alibi of “I couldn’t have murdered her, I left my gun in the restaurant” when describing his innocence on the topic of his wife’s death.

Officially, Madonna herself recently spoke with People magazine about the state her marriage and commented on her involvement with Mr. Rodriguez.  In her official statement on MTV News, she says:

“My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study,”

Really?  So the meetings with the divorce lawyers were just for show?  The reports of Guy Ritchie all alone are just false?  Do us a favor Madge: Stop mindfucking us and let us know whats really going on in that little mystified head and life of yours.

In a related item, Lenny Kravitz has mysteriously been absent in all of these precedings.  Hmmmm….
