Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez "Amicably" Settle Divorce

viernes, 19 de septiembre de 2008 |

Troubled Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and wife Cynthia Rodriguez have settled their bitter divorce fight. Terms of the settlement were not released.

"Cynthia and Alex Rodriguez have amicably resolved their dissolution of marriage proceedings," lawyers for the former couple said in a statement.

Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez have been "deliberately engaged in these private negotiations. During the negotiations and resolution all decisions were made with the best interests of their children as the paramount concern."

Cynthia, 35, filed for divorce in July, saying her estranged husband – known to fans as A-Rod – "emotionally abandoned" her and their children and had a series of affairs (with Joslyn Morse, Candice Houlihan, maybe Madonna, etc).

Cynthia Rodriguez had asked to keep their $12 million Coral Gables, Fla., mansion. The mother of his two children, Natasha, 3, and Ella, five months, also wanted a cut of his baseball earnings during the duration of their marriage.

Alex Rodriguez reportedly made $28 million during the 2008 season and is in the first year of a 10-year, $275 million contract with the New York Yankees.

The Rod argued that the settlement should be determined by their prenup, which Cynthia (maiden name Scurtis) signed a month before their 2002 wedding.

He admitted the marriage was "irretrievably broken," but noted Florida is a no-fault state for divorces and chastised her for mentioning "immaterial and impertinent" issues like his alleged "extra marital affairs and other marital misconduct."
