Stop the presses! Just as news is breaking that Madonna has filed for divorce from her husband Guy Ritchie, the whispers of her affair with New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez are turning into full blown shouts.
A source close to to the Material Girl reveals to Us Weekly that she and Alex "are definitely romantic."
Another source close to the baseball player confirms the rumors. "A-Rod and Madonna are more involved than ever," the spy says. "Alex has really missed spending time with Madonna. However, he understands the position Madonna's in."
After getting some distance from each other after their scandalous late-night visits became tabloid fodder a few months ago, leading to Alex's divorce from his wife Cynthia Rodriguez, the secretive couple reunited for a romantic dinner in New York recently.
So, where's Madonna's husband been during all this? "Guy is not involved in this equation," the insider tells the weekly. "With or without A-Rod, Madonna and Guy haven't been 'together' for over a year. They have been privately separated. Madonna, however, wanted to finish her world tour before divorcing."
At the time, to protect her public image (and, we're guessing, her children) Madonna had "agreed to be discreet about her relationship with A-Rod until her tour ends and a divorce is announced."
Looks like now that her tour is over and their respective divorces have been confirmed, Madge and Alex are free to turn their "affair of the heart" into one using their entire bodies! There's a mental picture we won't be able to get out of our heads all day.
Stay tuned for more updates and the inevitable damage control from the couple's respective publicists and divorce lawyers!
