Alex Rodriguez: Madonna and I Are 'Friends, That's It'

In an interview to discuss his latest charitable efforts, Alex Rodriguez tells 'People' magazine that there's nothing going on between Madonna and himself.

"We're friends," the 33-year-old Yankees star tells the magazine. Asked if there is any possibility of a romance between them at all, Rodriguez repeats, "We're friends, that's it."

While rumors continue to swirl that he and the singer are romantically involved, especially since now that both of them have filed for divorce, Rodriguez insists that there's nothing to the reports that he's been flying around the country with Madonna to spend time with her.

"I can tell you this, I have never been on a plane with her... I've been to two of her concerts, yet I've read that I went to 20. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true."

"You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff," he says.

Asked straight up whether he's ever stayed the night at Madonna's home, Rodriguez replies: "If I answered every rumor we'd be here for three weeks. I have a lot of respect for her. She's very committed to making the world a better place. She's had an amazing career, and we're friends."

As for his ex-wife and children, Rodriguez says he spent Thanksgiving with them: "I have a wonderful relationship with Cynthia. We try to be the best parents we can.... I see my children, honestly, seven days a week, which has been great. We both have a lot of respect for each other and she's a great lady."
