Speaking to celebrity gossip sources about his latest charitable efforts, New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez briefly spoke on his relationship with Madonna.
"We're friends," Rodriguez said. "We're friends - that's it."
While rumors have swirled that the slugger has been carrying on a romantic relationship and flying around the country in order to spend time with Madonna, "I can tell you this," he said, "I've never been on a plane with her."
A-Rod did not address yesterday's rumors that he's been railing Melissa Britos, however he did add that he finds celeb gossip reports about himself laughable:
"I've been to two [of her] concerts, yet I've read that I went to 20. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true... You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff."
When pressed on how much time they have spent together, and whether he had ever stayed the night at Madonna's home, Alex Rodriguez commented:
"If I answered every rumor we'd be here for three weeks."
A source close to A-Rod also says that reports of Madonna and Alex Rodriguez spending the night together are "completely and unequivocably false."
Okay, so they're not house hunting. But there's surely something going on. A-Rod doesn't have female friends, only women he hasn't hit home runs with yet.
