Cynthia Rodriguez to File For Divorce Today; Family & Friends Say A-Rod "Brainwashed" By Madonna

by at . Comments

After putting up with her husband's liaisons with Joslyn Morse and others, Cynthia Rodriguez finally left Yankees star Alex Rodriguez over his rumored affair with Madonna - or at least his newfound interest in Kabbalah.

"Cynthia has left Alex," a source close to C-Rod confirmed. "Let's see if she goes for the divorce. He made her sign a prenup. Cynthia is a strong person, but a wife with two young children can only take so much."

Cynthia Rodriguez will file for divorce today in Florida, citing the Rod's "emotional abandonment" but not naming Madonna in the official filings.

Another source close to the slugger's wife adds:

"The embarrassment over Madonna was the final straw. [Cynthia Rodriguez] flew to Paris to get out of town before everything blew up between them. There is no affair with Lenny Kravitz. They are good friends.'"

Alex Rodriguez belted his 536th career dinger last night, but he hasn't been hitting any home runs off the field with Madonna or Cynthia Rodriguez, apparently.

Kravitz denies that his relationship with Cynthia Rodriguez is romantic, and Madonna issued a similar denial of railing A-Rod over the weekend.

However, according to the New York Post, Alex Rodriguez's former trainer Dodd Romero, the godfather to the couple's two daughters, believes the player drifted apart from his family "by the excitement of Madonna."

"Alex, God bless him, is lost," says Romero. "I think he got pulled in by the dark side, if you can say that nicely. He is totally brainwashed... [Cynthia] believes that is what ruined the marriage."

According to a Miami event planner, Alex Rodriguez has spent the past year immersed in Kabbalah, Madonna's religion, learning all he can about it.

"Alex is very interested in Kabbalah and has gone to the centers in south Florida and other cities," the source says.

"He is totally committed to its teachings and is loyal to the organization. He has an acute understanding of it."

With her five-year marriage in question, "Cynthia is in good spirits and is going with the flow," says a close Miami friend of hers.

"She didn't deny a lot of things are in the air and rumors are swirling, but did not elaborate on the marriage. She said, 'Never a dull moment.'"

Madonna Quotes

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

Madonna [on Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair photos]

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.
