Alex Rodriguez is a liar and a cheater and he ruined the game of baseball -- but even he is allowed to sue over a real estate deal gone south.
We just turned up a lawsuit in which Alex Rodriguez sued Ryan Investments to get his $1 million deposit back on a house he was supposed to buy. A-Fraud claims he had every right to back out of the deal, since Ryan Investments didn't close the deal on time.
A-Rod and Cynthia (he was still with her when he made the deal back in November 2007) were buying the house for $15 mil -- it eventually sold to someone else a few months back for just under $12 mil.
So here's the mystery: Did A-Rod cancel because the deal didn't close on time or because his marriage was unraveling and bachelors don't need that much space?
