This isn’t surprising if you have a passing interest in sports gossip or celebrity gossip. I don’t follow sports whatsoever, but even I know Alex Rodriguez has issues regarding ladies and sex. Plus, I know he’s a narcissist whose ideal lady is probably some version of “A-Rod in drag.” Or perhaps “A-Rod as a centaur, in drag.” So, apparently A-Rod’s sex issues include “lots of hookers.” He’s not even hiring them one at a time either. Multiple hookers several times a week? Sure.
Just call him a-john. An upcoming book reports that not only did Alex Rodriguez enjoy the services of prostitutes — he frequently turned the double play by hiring them in pairs.
The tattered reputation of the Yankee slugger will get shredded some more in “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, The World’s Most Powerful Address,” a book by “740 Park” author Michael Gross due in time for spring training.
A-Rod rented a $30,000-a-month apartment in the pricey limestone tower in 2010, becoming neighbors with Sting, Denzel Washington and Bob Costas, plus Wall Street titans Lloyd Blankfein, Sandy Weill and Daniel Loeb.
A building worker told Gross, “He got hookers all the time. Usually two at a time, two times a week. One time he had two go up, they came down and left, and 10 minutes later, Cameron Diaz walks in.”
“Fifteen [Central Park West] became A-Rod’s home plate,” Gross writes, where the $275 million man scored with Madonna and Kate Hudson, as well as Diaz. “But apparently they weren’t enough for A-Rod.”
Though a broker called Rodriguez “the best tenant” in the book, the 15CPW staff didn’t agree.
“He was a douche, an unfriendly narcissist,” another building worker said. “I hate the guy. He thought he was God.”
A-Rod’s spokesman, Ron Berkowitz, says, “This is a further effort to fabricate scandal around Alex. The allegations concerning prostitutes are categorically false.”
“House” will be published March 11, 2014, by Atria/Simon & Schuster.
You know what I hate? I hate that the hookers are denigrated and pitied as “sex workers” while there’s a “boys will be boys” mentality when it comes to Alex (and any john). While this story is embarrassing for all involved, there seems to be an element of “Alex is super-rich, listen to this story of how awesome he is for having crazy hooker threesomes in his luxury apartment all the time.” Blah. I wouldn’t touch his ‘roid dong for all the money in the world.
