Alex Rodriguez ditches his kids on Thanksgiving to host party for Madonna

Despite an unwillingness to devote himself to Kabbalah studies, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is still showing a devotion to his older lover that eclipses his commitment to family. Alex’s ex wife Cynthis Rodriguez recently sent an e-mail to her friends complaining about her husband’s decision to spend Thanksgiving in New York with Madonna and her kids instead of staying in Miami to spend the holiday with his children:

The Yankee slugger, who ditched his wife of six years, Cynthia, after becoming besotted with Madonna, is a “soul-less” man who is “abandoning” his kids on Thanksgiving for his lover, according to what Cynthia is telling friends.

“Access Hollywood” reports that Cynthia, who’s in the final stages of her divorce from A-Rod, wrote an e-mail to a confidant noting: “My 6-foot-3, 220-pound soul-less, soon-to-be ex-husband is abandoning his kids on Thanksgiving to be with Madonna . . . She called and he ran on her command back to New York City . . . Gross!”

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.

The friend of Cynthia said A-Rod’s furious ex described Madonna in “not so nice terms” in the e-mail.

To add insult to injury, after Rodriguez left Miami at Madonna’s beck and call, his lawyer called Cynthia and wanted her to sign the couple’s divorce settlement.

A one year-old child isn’t likely to miss her dad on Thanksgiving, but a four year old can probably understand that daddy is not there for a holiday event. That’s harsh of Rodriguez and I know it’s rude to say but I’m disappointed that he’s not on the outs with Madonna. Both Rodriguez and Madonna were seen out separately with their mutual manager Guy Oseary over the weekend looking glum and I was hoping that it meant that they were each telling him about their their bustup.

The NY Post claims an insider told them that “Alex likes a woman with a strong hand. He likes to be told what to do. He’s a bit of a cipher.” I had to look up what cipher meant in this instance as I thought it was something they solved in those National Treasure movies. According to the American Heritage dictionary, it’s “One having no influence or value; a nonentity.” Not to his kids he isn’t.

    He’s an ass! No one should ditch their kids for some “temporary” fling…hell, no one should ditch their kids…PERIOD! Kids are not dumb, when they get older and he wants to do something with them (his kids) and they tell him that they are busy or have other plans; his ass his going to be looking real stupid!

    just as I’ve thought
    Guy oseary set them up and is managing their romance- how pathetic!
    I hope Cynthia gets a great person in her life and the kids won’t miss Daddy anymore.

    Alex Rodriguez deserves the John Mayer Douche Award for this.

  4. rabidparadise says:

    Well Madonna, look at that. You got a man to leave his children over holiday for you. My disgust for this couple grows daily.

  5. Kaiser says:

    Cipher. That’s funny. I have another word to describe A-Rod. “Bottom”.

  6. mamalama says:

    They deserve each other…she encourages him to abandon his kids on a holiday, and he does it! I’m married to a divorced guy who has 3 kids, and I would NEVER ask him not to see them whenever any of them wanted to. It’s not about YOU as the adult, it’s about THEM as the kids. Asses. Both of them.

    Since society thinks its A Okay for dads to abandon their family and move on to someone (anyone) else, why should celebrities be any different? Until the opinions change in this country, expecting MEN to support and cherish their families, this will keep happening. These men are selfish fools, why should A Rod be any different than a million other men in this country who arent spending time with their own children because they are with someone else.

    Wow, talk about ditching daddy-duty. Where are Madonna’s kids in all this? Is Guy going to see them during the hols? Way to go Alex for being awarded “Crappy Daddy of the Year”. 8O

    What will this giant of a baseball player find in Madonna’s cornucopia?

  12. sam says:

  13. gilly says:

    Disgusted in the pair of them, but as they say” what goes around comes around ” cannot wait for the day he’s dumped by his employers his soul mate ha ha and his wife

  14. morgs says:

    Her vagina’s teeth must have unmanned him.

  15. Anastasia Beaverhausen says:

    Wow. There’s nothing that pisses me off more than parents (BOTH men and women) ditching their kids. Those are your KIDS!

    And shame on Madonna, for allowing him to be away from his small children on Thanksgiving. I don’t care if his youngest IS one, she’ll still be crying for her daddy.

    What a douchenozzle.
