Meet Selena Roberts, the competent Sports Illustrated reporter who was accused of stalking Alex Rodriguez by A-Rod himself. You are not here to see Sports Illustrated swimsuit photos because she does not have any, but she is a respected lady who is working hard to make a buck.
Ms. Roberts is the Sports Illustrated reporter who broke the steroids story by revealing to the world that A-Rod tested positive for steroids in 2003. Instead of congratulating her on a job well done, Alex Rodriguez came unglued.
Rodriguez also criticized Sports Illustrated and said Selena Roberts, one of its reporters who covered the story, stalked him. He also accused Roberts of trying to break into his home last week while his two daughters were sleeping.
“What makes me upset is that Sports Illustrated pays this lady, Selena Roberts, to stalk me.”
“There are some really respectable journalists that are following this lady off a cliff.”

As a biography, Selena Roberts is a respected journalist. Not only is she a Sports Illustrated investigative journalist, she has written for the New York Times for 6 years. She has been a beat writer for basketball, baseball, and tennis. And she covered the recent Olympics.
Earlier in her career, Ms. Roberts covered the Orlando Magic and Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the Orlando Sentinel and the Minnesota Vikings for The Minneapolis Star Tribune. She also reported on auto racing including NASCAR racing.
As a black mark on her record, she was heavily criticized for her coverage of the Duke Lacrosse case in which she was reluctant to give the innocent players a fair hearing.
She was born May 15, 1966 which makes her 42 years old. She currently lives in Westport, Connecticut. Ms. Roberts graduated from Auburn University in 1988 with a degree in journalism.
She responded to A-Rod’s far-fetched allegations by responding in the following way:
“The allegations made by Alex Rodriguez are absurd,” said Roberts, in the statement. “I’ve never set foot in the lobby of Alex’s New York apartment building, never spoken to the University of Miami police, and never set foot on his home property or been cited by the Miami Police for doing so.”
