Madonna, who is coping with rumors of her own breakup with husband Guy Ritchie, has denied she and A-Rod are an item. “They're just friends,” Madonna's spokeswoman insisted. But the story has another twist. A-Rod's wife, Cynthia Rodriguez is allegedly having an affair with singer Lenny Kravitz. The wife of the Yankee player has been seen on tour with him.

“There is absolutely no affair between Cynthia Rodriguez and myself,” Kravitz said. “This is unequivocally 100 percent not true.”

Kravitz said references to him as an adulterer were “extremely hurtful,” adding that Cynthia brought along her daughter's godfather and his family for moral support as her 5-year marriage to Alex Rodriguez fell apart.
