On the heels of an official announcement that Madonna and husband of almost 8 years Guy Ritchie are getting a divorce, rumors of a relationship between Madonna and New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez resurface.
According to sources for UsWeekly, as things between Madonna and Guy Ritchie cool down, things between the Queen of Pop and A-Rod are heating up, although Madonna would reportedly like to keep things quiet until her divorce is finalized and her world tour is over.
After what seems like months of rumors and speculation, Madonna and Guy Ritchie have officially announced that they are getting a divorce. Adding lovely fuel to the gossip fire are the rumors of a blossoming romantic relationship between Madonna and the Yankee’s infielder. Over the summer when ARod’s wife Cynthia filed for divorce, she alleged his long period of infidelity as her reason for ending their marriage. While never publicly naming names, she reportedly privately told friends that Madonna was one of his mistresses. During this time, the Material Girl and ARod were seen together having dinner, although he brushed off the speculation, stating she was just schooling him in the ways of Kabbalah.
Adding to the speculation, ARod attended Madonna’s benefit for Malawi and donated a sizeable amount of money to her Raising Malawi charity. Things were pretty quiet on the Madonna/ARod front after his divorce was settled in September, although that may have been due in part to her world tour. Earlier this month, they were reportedly seen having dinner at Dos Caminos restaurant in New York City. Today, after confirmation of Madonna’s divorce from Guy Ritchie, reports are circulating anew that she and ARod are “definitely” an item although the sources are not identified. A source told UsWeekly that Madonna and Guy have been separated for over a year, and state that she and ARod are “more involved than ever.”
