A-Rod Divorce

Madonna was 'Last Straw'

7/7/2008 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


A-RodCynthia Rodriguez's lawyer tells TMZ, "A-Rod may be an All-Star baseball player, but he's flunked the All-Star team as far as marriage is concerned."

Earle Lilly is repping Cynthia in the divorce case, which will be launched tomorrow when she files legal papers in Miami. Lilly claims Alex Rodriguez, who's already banked more than $250 mil, and Madonna have been having an affair "and are still together." He says they were together after his game yesterday and together today as well.

Lilly says, "We're not gonna lose this case." He acknowledges a prenup exists but it's "too early" to decide if he'll challenge it. He says there will be a "huge settlement" in the case but "not hundreds of millions of dollars." Lilly says A-Rod's estate is "vast ... beyond what anyone knows."

He says, "Cynthia is tremendously traumatized and devastated," adding the legal papers he'll file tomorrow will claim she's the victim of "emotional abandonment." Lilly says A-Rod has seen his six-week-old baby "once, maybe twice, but that's it." He says there's no question -- when the ink is dry she will be the primary custodial parent.

Madonna will not be specifically named in the divorce papers. Lilly says infidelity is a "major cause" for the divorce, but not because of any one allegation. Rather, he says, there were a series of dalliances and "Madonna was the last straw."

Lilly says Cynthia did not have an affair with Lenny Kravitz and that her relationship with him is "totally innocent and puristic."

It's Madonna getting drug through the mud here. If there was no affair, I sincerely hope she takes this Cynthia woman on a legal ride of her own for libel and slander.

OMFG!!!
A-Rod is obviously much better off without his "wife"...Sounds to me like SHE was looking for an out from the marriage, and is jealous of the happiness Madonna has found with Guy Ritchie...
So what if Madonna has been coaching A-Rod in Kaballah, if Cynthia had an ounce of respect for her man, or her marriage she would have supported HIS religious choice...
And, if Cynthia is soooo "traumatized", why the hell is she seeking solace in Lenny Kravitz?...The "we're just friends" door swings both ways, biotch...Don't let it hit ya in the ass...

It's terrible for these people when they get publicly humiliated by their husband, or wife in Guy Ritchie's case. And the kids! When A-Rod eventually takes a good look at Madonna and sees a homely, menpausal manipulator I hope I dumps her with the same lack of compassion.

I hate to break it to you guys but...... A-Rod IS GAY! He is not banging Madonna, he is probably not even banging his wife. This guy is going to break barry bonds home run record and come out you watch! "Ya, I just broke Barry's homerun record and ya btw I'm gay" It is going to be great!

whatever.........    


Her relationship with Lenny Kravitz is "totally innocent and puristic." A-Rod and Madonna cannot not have the same "totally innocent and puristic" relationship?? She is looking for a way out.....with most of the cash!
