Yankee called Madonna his ‘soulmate’ – Tabloid Hell

A-Rod reportedly smitten with Material Girl

The media storm around Madonna and New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez continued today with the publication of an article that claims Rodriguez called the Material Girl his soulmate, and reports that he’s said he’s in love with her.

The story comes amid a swirl of affair accusations which so far have involved Madonna, Rodrigez, his wife Cynthia and Lenny Kravitz.

According to usmagazine.com, a friend of the baseball star says he was texting Madonna as early as six months ago, and over dinner, said he was in love with her,

“He told me it was Madonna. I was shocked,” the friend reportedly told the tabloid.

“He said, ‘She’s my f–king soulmate, dude,'” the friend continued

As previously reported, Rodriguez’ wife Cynthia filed for divorce on Monday and her lawyer Earle Lilly told the tabloid the affair did indeed happen saying:

“Without talking about specifics of sexual conduct, there’s no question,. No one very often has pictures of the actual sex itself.”

Meanwhile Lenny Kravitz, who wrote Madonna’s hit ‘Justify My Love’, is reportedly horrified at being implicated in the drama, and apparently sent a text message to Rodriguez asking him to clear his name. Kravitz was visited by Cynthia Rodriguez in Paris just days ago, after she fled the media flurry in the US.

Kravitz is a former client of Guy Oseary (Madonna’s manager), and apparently fired Oseary just two weeks ago.

Some reports claim Kravitz knew of the pending publicity storm and resented being associated with it.
