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.

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.
