Alex Rodriguez's Wife To File For Divorce, Calls Madonna 'Final Straw'

According to various reports, Alex Rodriguez's wife will officially file for divorce on Monday.

Cynthia, who married A-Rod, in 2002 says the marriage is over because of the baseball star's innumerable extramarital affairs. This after news surfaced last week of Alex Rodriguez's late night visits to Madonna's New York apartment.

Attorney Earle Lilly, who has been hired by Cynthia Rodriguez to launch the divorce case, tells Houston TV station KTRK that Rodriguez's "relationship with Madonna was the final straw for Mrs. Rodriguez."

"She feels that she has exhausted every opportunity to salvage the marriage, and that Alex has emotionally abandoned her and the children and has left her with no choice but to divorce him."

Meanwhile, Madonna released a statement of her own insisting the two were just friends: "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," referring to the reports that she was introducing A-Rod to Kabbalah.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez's former trainer, who is also godfather to Rodriguez's two daughters, tells the New York Post that he believes the rock star has to do a lot with what's happening with the Yankee: "Alex, God bless him, is lost. I think he got pulled in by the dark side, if you can say that nicely. He's totally brainwashed."

"Once Madonna and A-Rod started working out together in New York in November 2007, he was under the complete spell of kabbalah's most famous practitioner. He's more infatuated with the fact he's with an icon instead of realizing what's important, which is family and truth."
