Days after reports that Yankees shortstop, Alex Rodriguez, was having an affair with Madonna, he and his wife of five years, Cynthia, have split after months of ongoing marriage problems. Problems that may arise when your wife is banging Lenny Kravitz. New York Daily News reports:

Word of the breakup comes a day after widespread reports that the Bombers’ $275 million cleanup hitter has been rounding the bases with pop icon Madonna – and team owner Hank Steinbrenner blamed recent poor play on “outside distractions.” “It’s true,” the source said of A-Rod’s separation from his wife of five years. “They’ve been having problems for about three months.” Word of the couple’s marital strife comes less than three months after they expressed how “thrilled” they were with the April 21 birth of their daughter, Ella Alexander. Rodriguez, 32, didn’t join his wife in Miami until 10 minutes after she gave birth, and spent only a day with her and their newborn before rejoining the Yankees. Revelations of the couple’s not-so-great-nuptials came as new rumors surfaced on the Internet that Cynthia Rodriguez, 34, was having a fling with rocker Lenny Kravitz.”

Alex Rodriguez makes $28 million a year in base salary alone, so something inside me thinks he just might be able to pull through this. He could probably spend his nights crying in his bed, but the chances of him spending the rest of the summer papier macheing models with $100 dollar bills and semen seem pretty good, too.
