Aging, overrated New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is under investigation for participating in Hollywood’s underground poker ring, according to reports.

Major League Baseball is looking into a convicted fraudster’s stunning confession that the oft-controversial Yankees slugger played in high-stakes tournaments.

Illegal ones that included celebrities Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and a jailed hedge fund manager, Bradley Ruderman.

Ruderman embezzled $25 million of his clients’ money and used $5.2 million of it to pay off gambling debts, admitting that he played against Rodriguez, 36.

Maguire has been sued to recover part of the winnings.

“Like all situations, when we receive new information we investigate,” said a spokesperson for MLB, which interviewed, but did not punish A-Rod, once before.

The crooked Ponzi Scheme mastermind used his clients’ millions to pay off star players including Tobey Maguire and The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes.

Multiple eyewitnesses at the games confirmed that Rodriguez was involved, but say his participation was limited. The baseball great has not commented.

Alex Rodriguez had been laying low since his split with Cameron Diaz and failure to come through in the 2011 playoffs, but he's apparently hitting it out of the park again.

He's reportedly dating Torrie Wilson.

A 36-year-old model and former pro wrestler, Wilson spent the holidays with her family in Boise, Idaho, where A-Rod was coincidentally spotted as well. HMM.

Boise news anchor Mike Murad even tweeted a photo of A-Rod running on the treadmill at the local gym and said, "I was told he was visiting a friend."

Moreover, eyewitness Randy Simon told the Idaho Stateman that the New York Yankees third baseman, also 36, was at the gym with Torrie Wilson.

A-Rod and Torrie's Idaho trip isn't the first time the two have been spotted together. On Dec. 4, the couple were photographed riding bikes in Miami.

Earlier this year, A-Rod was vacationing in Mexico with friends George Clooney and Stacy Keibler. Torrie, a close friend of Stacy, was also on hand.

Seems like they may have each other in a romantic choke hold, or something.

Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez have called it quits. Like for real. The relationship went downhill faster than A-Rod's production these last two years.

After a year back together, the actress and baseball star have ended their romance. "They broke up recently," a source close to the Yankee slugger said.

Their romance was marked by beach getaways, working out and the occasional douche-tastic sighting. But their careers were too big an obstacle.

"She's very busy with her career," the source says of Bad Teacher actress Diaz, 39. As for A-Rod? "He's had injuries and wants to focus on his game."

"They're both dedicated and they're both professionals."

Fair enough. So don't expect any sort of drama in the wake of their split. "They are still very friendly and like each other very much," the source says.

"He has an enormous amount of respect for her."

Alex Rodriguez should stick to being fed popcorn by Cameron Diaz.

For the second time in a few years, the Yankees third baseman is at the center of an underground poker scandal. According to Radar Online, ARod took part in a couple illegal Texas Hold 'Em games in the recent past, during which cocaine was used and a brawl broke out.

Major League Baseball is looking into the allegations and taking them "very seriously," an insider tells ESPN.

Alex Rodriguez on The Late Show

The Yankees have won five games in a row without Alex Rodriguez in the lineup.

The games were held at the Beverly Hills mansion of record executive Cody Leibel, with the host losing "more than a half-million dollars" at one, a witness told Radar, and violence subsequently breaking out over his refusal to pay.

Anyone who saw the Super Bowl in February also saw Cameron Diaz feed popcorn to Alex Rodriguez in a hilariously awkward, PDA-packed display.

Promoting her flick Bad Teacher, the star gave us the inside scoop on the snacky sideshow to David Letterman on The Late Show Tuesday night.

She then reenacted the incident with the cantankerous host ...

"We were sitting there watching the game, and I was eating, and I was getting down to, like, the last couple pieces of popcorn," Diaz recalled.

"All of a sudden, I see [Alex's] hand coming in. Anybody who knows me does not put a hand in my food, especially this close to my mouth."

But ... "I said, 'What are you ... ?' And then I went, 'You know what? I love you too much, I'm going to give it to you. You deserve it.'" Aww/barf.

As for their relationship, Diaz put an end to any A-Rod breakup rumors, calling him her boyfriend, in spite of his overzealous snacking and everything.

Sounds like a keeper.

Perhaps reports of a Cameron Diaz-Alex Rodriguez breakup were premature. The actress seemed to indicate so, laughing off the rumor Monday.

"If I want to read celebrity gossip, I read about somebody else's life," she said.

"I can't worry about what other people say. It's fine to say whatever you want as long as you actually don't know what's going on in my life."

The on-off couple actually appears stronger than ever, showing up holding hands at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards party at L.A.'s SoHo House.

There, they were "very affectionate," according to one witness, chatting and mingling with pals whilst stealing kisses throughout the night.

Just days earlier, the twosome was seen watching the NBA Finals at sports bar Goals. "They were definitely a couple," a Goals witness says.

So, there you have it. A-Rod and CD, hanging out at goals and likely scoring some goals after the fact, if you know what we're talkin' about.

Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez have parted ways, according to reports. Who could have ever seen this shocking celebrity breakup coming?

A little more than a year after they first got together, apparently CD and the Rod have called things off, although this isn't their first breakup.

"They broke up a few days ago. He ended it," a source says. "However, they broke up and got back together before, so not sure it's forever."

A Rod By Any Other Name ...

A rep for Bad Teacher star did not respond to a request for comment, while a rep for the New York Yankees third baseman had no comment.

After initially laying low, Diaz and A-Rod brought went public last year, vacationing in Cabo, then cuddling at the Super Bowl in full view of millions.

Just last month, the actress broke her silence on their relationship, telling Maxim, "It's really awesome." Or it was really awesome, at least.

While he may no longer be rounding the bases with Diaz off the field, A-Rod is still batting a healthy .291 with 10 homers and 33 RBIs.
