Madonna’s friends keep A-Rod in line in Miami

Alex Rodriguez was trying to mind his business and enjoy the single life while partying in South Beach at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach after the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this weekend. Madonna’s best friends were on hand to make sure he didn’t get up to anything naughty, though, and the baseball player’s game was summarily shut down by Gwyneth Paltrow and Ingrid Casares. The two cock blocked him from a cute brunette and weren’t subtle about it either.

Partygoers at last Friday’s opening for the chic new Fontainebleu Hotel in Miami tell OK! that A-Rod appeared to be up to no good until a pair of Madge’s pals, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna’s BFF Ingrid Casares, played a bit of babysitter.

The night began innocently enough, as A-Rod — along with his always-present posse of pals and bodyguards — tried to sneak past photographers on the red carpet, but to no avail. Once inside the Fontainebleu’s main marble-floored room, the all-star shortstop was all smiles, posing for photographs with fans and talking about everything from baseball to holiday plans to other partiers, especially one dark-haired beauty in a short black dress who approached him.

“They looked like they were flirting,” one eyewitness tells OK! about Alex and his chatting partner. “A-Rod’s body language was open and casual, and he had a big smile.”

Meanwhile, Madonna’s good buddy Gwyneth, who had arrived a few minutes before A-Rod was only about five feet away from this intriguing scene, talking to friends but glancing over and keep tabs on Alex’s conversation.

About 15 minutes lapsed before Madonna’s best friend Ingrid swooped in to inject herself into the conversation with Alex.

“She wedged herself in between A-Rod and the brunette and didn’t even acknowledge that the other woman was there,” recalls the partygoer to OK!. “Ingrid diverted Alex’s attention and made sure to keep him deep in conversation.”

The tenacious mystery brunette remained by the pair’s side, despite appearing completely forgotten by A-Rod. “She just stood there, off to the side, waiting for someone to talk to her,” says the eyewitness. “At one point she pulled out her phone and started to text people, but she was still being ignored.”

Then Gwnyeth sidled over to join Ingrid and Alex, completely blocking out the woman who had held his attention so closely only minutes earlier.

“Finally, the brunette girl got the hint after about 20 minutes of being ignored and just rejoined the crowd while Alex continued to catch up with Gwyneth and Ingrid,” the insider tells OK!.

Maybe Alex will realize that his soulmate-dude is a jealous older woman who is not going to give him the breathing room that a newly divorced sports star craves. If he didn’t catch on at the time that her best buddies were watching him for her he’s sure to know now that the tabloids have the story. If he knows what’s good for him he’ll rip the red string off his wrist and save some money and time by telling Madonna he’s not ready to be her boy toy. There are plenty of women who will gladly give him some fun and romance without strings attached.

    Bottom left picture in the thumbnails: is that “THE brunette”?

  2. xiaoecho says:

    There’s about three quarters of a mile between Paltry’s protruding clavicles and her breasts

  3. Kaiser says:

    😆 I love this pic of Dame Paltrow! This is how she appears in my mind: mid-smirk, mid-eyeroll, smug, pissy. This photo is a WIN!

    But yeah, A-Rod. I kind of feel bad for him, really. He was hypnotized by The Gristle and now there’s no looking back.

  4. CJ says:

    Why would anyone want a man you half to ‘keep in line’?

    And how immature to send your friends to look after your man.

    Is this Jr high?

  5. courtknee says:

    hahahahaha i love this post

    I want to believe the story too because it’s awesome.

  6. Baholicious says:

    @Kaiser: He’s seen her deadlights… 😯

  7. sassyspank says:

    when your friends have to help you hold on to a man, then that’s when you know that you’re officially gristle.

  8. Lauri says:

    Why? He is a single man. Madonna is separated, but still married woman. So they are dating. There is no reason in the world why he shouldn’t date other women. How can he be commmitted to woman that still has a husband?

  9. Lisa says:

    A-Rod is a creep and Gwyneth needs to tell Madonna to do her own dirty work keeping an eye on her own boyfriend.
    Can someone please tell me if A-Rod is supposed to be attractive? Am I the only one who feels my skin crawling when I look at him?

  10. Analeigh says:

    I agree completely with Lisa – this guy has no appeal. Blech.

    However, it is somewhat showing of their relationship if he must be publicly bff-handled.

  11. Cinderella says:

    I’m sure he’s loving the press, but he will never be faithful to Madonna. She can’t monitor every strip club out there.

  12. Syko says:

    I don’t think he’s attractive either, although I’m sure he has a great body. But that’s really stupid for Paltrow to be so rude. All my sympathy is with the brunette, although I actually feel she dodged a bullet by being frozen out.

  13. MB Travis says:

    OMG! I bet this totally happened! Madonna is so old and gross and should be jailed or flogged or something. Look at Gwyneth’s body! I’m a woman and I love nothing more than to judge other women and say mean things about their age/body/intelligence. It’s the most fun thing ever.

  14. Ter says:

    The bruenette would be better looking if she didn’t have “spider leg” eyebrows.

    Being handled has got to be all kinds of embarrassing and should raise ten thousand red flags. Alex has got to be over the top stupid if he puts up with this blantant controlling by proxy.

  15. Rosebudd says:

    CB, you said it perfectly and I’ll be laughing for a while about ripping of the red string.

  16. Because I say So says:

    The brunette has more class than the others. I would’ve tapped Ms Putrid on her shoulder and told her to get her bony ass out of my face. She probably thinks she can get away with any kind of behavior, but it just takes messing with the wrong person ONCE. The brunette missed a prime opportunity!

  17. Codzilla says:

    xiaoecho: 😆 I noticed the same thing, but you described it much better than I ever could.

  18. yadira says:

    Gristle sure has some faithful minions

  19. vdantev says:

    Look closer and you can see Gwyneth Paltroon’s studded leather collar with Madonna’s name on it.
