Madonna's spokeswoman insists that the athlete and the singer are "just friends," but Rodriguez has reportedly been paying visits to Madonna's apartment, according to a source for Us Weekly, and after the birth of his second daughter back in April, "Alex literally left 10 minutes after the baby was born, and then was at Madonna's."

Additionally, a source tells the magazine that Rodriguez's wife Cynthia "doesn't believe they are just friends," and that she left "because she is sure this is all true." The New York Post reports that the baseball star's five year marriage is over, and that Cynthia is currently in Paris with the couple's two daughters staying with Madonna's ex, singer Lenny Kravitz. Kravitz denies that the two are an item, telling Us Weekly:

    "There is absolutely no affair between Cynthia Rodriguez and myself. This is unequivocally 100% not true. Cynthia is a friend and is here with the godfather of her baby, who is also Alex's trainer, his wife and their baby girl. She came here to escape from everything happening in New York City. I opened my home to her as a friend and I find it extremely hurtful that I am now being referred to as an adulterer."
