New York's hottest new sort-of-confirmed celeb couple, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez, are quietly shopping for love nests on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, as well as on the East End of Long Island, sources tell the New York Post.
A knowledgeable real estate source reports that the kabbalah-crazed singer and the skirt-chasing slugger are "discreetly looking at properties between Fifth and Park avenues, from just above 60th Street through the 80s.
"Madonna personally came to look at one house a couple of months ago, and Alex has been looking recently," the insider said. "We're talking about private, double-width mansions in the vicinity of $30 million to $60 million."
Madge and A-Rod are also interested in scoring a house "with a garage that you can drive into for privacy - although those are rare and hard to come by," a spy added. Another source said they were also looking in the Hamptons.
A-Rod, meanwhile, continues to try to unload the home he shared with ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez - dropping the price on the four-bedroom, 4,600-square-foot pad at Trump Park Avenue to $10 million, down from the original $14 million.
The Rod is also willing to rent it for $50,000 a month. What a steal. Madonna, meanwhile, is hanging on to her posh Central Park West apartment.
Last week, after celebrity gossip tabloids revealed he planned on dumping his kids on Thanksgiving to spend the day with Madonna, shame-faced A-Rod and Madge flew together on a private jet to Miami, where she performed.
While Alex did see his two daughters (ages 3 and six months) on the holiday, the lovebirds later flew to Mexico together for the weekend.
