Madonna and Alex Rodriguez were spotted in Mexico City last weekend.

The two have not confirmed their romance on the record, but reportedly had a public "coming out" November 26, when, according to E! Online, the Yankees third baseman handed Madonna a water bottle during her Miami concert.

A-Rod and Madonna also apparently met up on Thanksgiving, after the New York Yankees star fulfilled his family obligations. Lame kids and ex-wife. Zzz.

When asked what he thought about being in the capital city the same time as his rumored paramour, the baseball star would only say it was "very good."

The 50-year-old Madonna – whose divorce from director husband Guy Ritchie was finalized days ago – was in town to perform a pair of concerts on her tour.

The former Mr. Cynthia Rodriguez, meanwhile, was invited to inaugurate a new sports complex in the city, and spent two hours Sunday teaching kids to bat.

"It's been a pleasure to talk about baseball, to talk about the importance of keeping children off the streets, out of drugs and out of all the bad things that there are in this life," the 33-year-old slugger said in Spanish.

Alex Rodriguez has priorities. His children just aren't among them.

The Yankees slugger, who ditched his wife of over six years, Cynthia Rodriguez, after becoming smitten with Madonna, is a "soul-less" man who is eschewing his kids on Thanksgiving in favor of his lover, according to C-Rod.

According to Access Hollywood and the New York Post, Cynthia, who's in the final stages of her divorce from A-Rod, wrote this e-mail to a confidant:

"My 6-foot-3, 220-pound soul-less, soon-to-be ex-husband is abandoning his kids on Thanksgiving Day to be with Madonna ... She called and he ran on her command back to New York City ... Gross!"

Way to include his height and weight, Cyn.

This sums up the respective attitudes of A-Rod and Cynthia these days.

Instead of ushering in the holidays in Miami with his children, Natasha, 4, and Ella, 1 - A-Rod, 33, is hosting a dinner at his Manhattan apartment for Madonna, 50, and her kids, Lourdes, Rocco and David, and manager Guy Oseary.

So much for the friction between Madonna and Alex Rodriguez we reported earlier, amid reports that she's pissed over his indifference toward Kabbalah.

To add insult to injury, after Alex Rodriguez left Miami at Madonna's beck and call, his lawyer asked C-Rod to sign the couple's divorce settlement.

Madonna is reportedly furious that Alex Rodriguez dropped out of Kabbalah training because he was "bored," according to celebrity news reports.

The 50-year-old singer - whose divorce from Guy Ritchie was granted last week - has so far failed in her attempts to get rumored new boyfriend to share her deep level of interest in Kabbalah, a mystical off-shoot of Judaism.

This report comes in spite of the fact that A-Rod reportedly told a friend earlier this year that Madonna is his "f*%king soulmate, dude." What a loser.

Alex split with wife Cynthia Rodriguez a few months ago. Since then, his relationship with the singer has reportedly gotten physical. But for how long?

What A Rod

A source at New York's Kabbalah Center, where the New York Yankees star had been attending private classes with spiritual leader Eitan Yardeni, said:

"He hasn't even finished Kabbalah 1 (the introduction to Kabbalah) and the majority of the time he spent with Yardeni so far was for counseling, not study."

Madonna - whose efforts to make Guy Ritchie interested in the religion failed after the director branded it "weird" and "hokum" - is said to be considering whether to proceed in her relationship with A-Rod as a result of his indifference.

A source told MSNBC:

"This is certainly off-putting to Madonna. She did drag Guy into Kabbalah, she's doing the same with Alex. But he's bored. He's basically a Kabbalah dropout."

Well, Alex Rodriguez hasn't commented on the record, but the Bronx baller has to be stoked as $h!t that his "f*%king soulmate, dude" is officially a free woman.

The BBC reports that according to court lists, Madonna and that Guy she was married to will be granted a preliminary divorce at the High Court in London on Friday.

According to British celebrity news reports, Madonna, 50, and Guy Ritchie, 40, reached a settlement over money and kids Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3.

London's Evening Standard reports that Madonna will keep the bulk of her estimated $500 million fortune, though Ritchie was entitled by law to a share of it.

"He could have hugely boosted his bank balance and set himself up for life, but he already feels he has enough money," a pal of Guy told the the Standard.

"But he also didn't want the whole thing dragging on in the public gaze for months and months on end. In any case, his priority was their children's future."

Madonna and Ritchie were married in 2000, shortly after the birth of son Rocco. Since the split, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez, the baseball star whose relationship with her reportedly played a role in his own divorce, have been "involved."

A-Rod split with Cynthia Rodriguez earlier this year, after his alleged "affair of the heart" with Madonna and affairs of additional body parts with other skanks.

Britney and Madonna

You only got 4 minutes to get Madonna some pants!

So much for a big Britney Spears-Justin Timberlake reunion.

Both pop stars converged at the much-hyped Madonna concert last night, although they did not appear with her at the same time, much to fans' chagrin.

Spears, clad in black pants, a white tuxedo-style shirt and sexy black heels, shared the spotlight with Madonna on "Human Nature." But Madonna's one-time makeout partner split long before Timberlake appeared to duet on Madonna's "4 Minutes."

Surrounded by bodyguards, Britney Spears immediately took off following Timberlake's appearance. Here's a brief look at Britney and Madonna:

If there's one thing we know we can bank on from Madonna, it's that she'll boink Alex Rodriguez shake things up and make music history every so often.

Her latest spectacle? Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake are both set to perform alongside the Material Girl Thursday when her Sticky & Sweet tour rolls into L.A.'s Dodger Stadium, according to Ryan Seacrest's report on E! News.

"They are going to be onstage performing with Madonna," Seacrest said.

Best. Kiss. Ever.

While Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears have both collaborated with Madonna on music and girl-on-girl action, respectively, the exes certainly haven't been spending massive amounts of quality time together in the years since they split.

Previous reports of a duet between Britney and Justin for her new album were bogus. Every so often, a story will pop up that Spears years for JT. Physically.

"If Justin and Britney end up on that stage with her... I don't know if I've ever seen anything quite like that before," Seacrest said. "Expect some surprises."

Hopefully by that he means Madonna making out on stage both of them ... or A-Rod joining the trio for an encore. Something along those lines.

Their respective spouses now a thing of the past, rumored couple Madonna and Alex Rodriguez took a little trip to Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld's waterfront mansion in the Hamptons last week, according to a report in The New York Post.

A helicopter carrying A-Rod was spotted landing in East Hampton, where he was picked up in a white Porsche 911 matching the description of Jessica's car.

Madonna in Stealth Mode

Less than 40 minutes later, another chopper carrying Madonna took off from NYC's Chelsea Piers and landed at the same airstrip, the newspaper reports.

"A dark SUV and Jerry in another Porsche both pulled up and picked up Madonna, and they headed back to Jerry's place," a witness told The Post.

"When they arrived at the Seinfeld home, Madonna poked her head out the window and could be clearly seen ... the visit lasted a few hours."

Is it odd Madonna and A-Rod chilled with Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld? Not really.

"The Seinfelds have been friends with Madonna for years. They're neighbors on the West Side, so it's really no surprise," an insider tells the paper. "And Jerry and Jessica Seinfield go to her concerts whenever she's in town."

Let the double-dating fun begin!

The UK's Daily Mail has some great Alex Rodriguez gossip today. Among the many rumors heating up surrounding the baseball star and Madonna are:

  • Madonna's "soulmate" is close to buying an NYC penthouse apartment two blocks away as he yearns to be closer to her.
  • A-Rod and Madonna are expected to go public as a couple in a few months.
  • Alex Rodriguez has pledged to back the singer's passion to spread the mystical Kabbalah philosophy around the world.
  • Madonna has talked about planning their wedding.
  • She is hoping to enlarge her family with the baseball star.

Speculation of romantic sparks between the two has been off the hook after both of them announced they were getting divorced and the Rod has been spotted out and about with the superstar on a number of occasions.

So far they have not gone public, but some believe his apartment hunting is the first step in what will soon be an exclusive, romantic relationship.

Alex Rodriguez Rolls

"Alex knows that this is a difficult time for Madonna, especially as she has children," a source said. "So he thought this was the best way to be close to her without being too intrusive ... All he cares about is just being close to her."

Meanwhile, the 50-year-old Madonna is hoping she can have a biological child with Alex Rodriguez, despite her age and may already be planning their wedding.

A friend of hers says: "She thinks he's physically a great specimen. And if she is going to have another child, he would be the ideal man to bring one to her."

Did Madonna's relationship - be it an "affair of the heart" or other body parts - with Yankees star Alex Rodriguez lead to her split with Guy Ritchie?

A source close to the situation says the split was "a long time coming."

While no third party has been blamed for the breakup of the marriage, "There are many issues, and not the least is her strange relationship with Alex Rodriguez," says the source. "It is spiritual, emotional and romantic."

Alex Rodriguez's rep had no comment.

Alex Rodriguez thinks of Madonna everywhere he goes.

Madonna met the baseball star via mutual friend Ingrid Casares, and the singer introduced him to Kabbalah. The pair also share manager Guy Oseary.

This relationship did not sit well with A-Rod's wife, Cynthia Rodriguez, who filed for divorce on July 7, citing his "extramarital affairs and misconduct."

Though the Madonna and Alex Rodriguez connection was not named in the court documents, Cynthia's attorney said A-Rod had an "affair of the heart."
