That took long. After rumors (well ok, stone-cold hard facts) that A-Rod was seen walking around major cosmopolitan cities in North America, acompanied by a “whorish blonde, and lavinshing extravagant gifts on strippers accross the U.S.” (Perez Hilton’s words, not mine), HBW Alumn Cynthia Rodriguez is out of A-Rod’s life, and out of his apartment.

From the NY Daily News:

Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez vowed yesterday that revelations about his off-the-field antics wouldn’t affect his play for the slumping Bombers.

“I certainly don’t think this will be a distraction to our team,” A-Rod said before last night’s winning effort against the Toronto Blue Jays.

But it may be a distraction at home: His wife, Cynthia, brusquely left their East Side pad last night with two suitcases, refusing to speak with reporters.

A-Rod wouldn’t directly address reports that he spent Sunday night out on the town with a sexy blond gal pal – while his wife was back in New York with their 2-year-old daughter. But his manager, Joe Torre, spoke up for his star player after meeting with him in private.

“Alex is a big boy. I know how serious he takes his baseball, so it really wasn’t an issue for me,” Torre said, adding that he thought the media attention was “over the line.”

I couldn’t imagine A-Rod at a strip club; he is kinda fruity. But I must admit, this whole A-Rod Strippergate has exposed one of the most, if not the most, deliciously juicy controversies New York has ever seen. I mean, Joe Torre commenting on A-Rod’s ability to keep his shenanigans out of the clubhouse?

Even for the Big Apple, that’s impressive.

    Makes you wonder if Perez Hilton saw this article with picture?

    I’m hoping I’m just too tired right now and am misreading this sarcasm as legit, but listen, I understand he’s ARod, a universally hated jerk, (and I’m not saying I don’t totally agree with that) but come on… if they want to call ARod’s “HAH” scream from the other night bush league then I give the same tag for this umpbump entry.

  2. So much for gossiping at umpbump… we can’t keep up with it!

    I’ll leave it to Perez Hilton and the like.
