The A-Rod Love Quadrangle: All a Publicity Stunt?

Celebrity trainer Dodd Romero, who has had front row seats to the Alex Rodriguez scandal, is making explosive allegations to the New York Post that the entire thing has been manufactured by manager Guy Oseary (who represents A-Rod, Madonna and Lenny Kravitz) to garner publicity for his clients.

Romero called Lenny, who has been accused of having an affair with Cynthia Rodriguez, two weeks ago to tip him off that Oseary was about to "pimp out Madonna and A-Rod," said a source. But Lenny didn't approve of the publicity stunt and told Romero, "I'll take care of this," and fired Oseary.

Days later, Lenny, Cynthia and Romero were all in Lenny's tour bus in Paris when the reports broke that Lenny and Cynthia had been having an extramarital affair. "Lenny looked like he was going to throw up," said Romero, who believes Lenny was dragged into the scandal by Oseary in retaliating for being dumped as the rocker's manager. "Lenny said, 'I worked so hard to clean up my image and now I'm gonna get dragged into this.' "

The trio had plans to fly to Spain to meet up with Denzel Washington, whom Romero also trains, but canceled when Lenny and Cynthia's alleged tryst made news. The group agreed it was best for Cynthia to instead head back to Miami to "sort out the mess."

A rep for Kravitz confirmed he dumped Oseary two weeks ago. As for A-Rod and Madonna, the Material Girl issued a statement several days ago denying any "romantic involvement" with the ball player, but never refuted that they had an affair.

Rumors of Madonna's divorce from Guy Ritchie and her involvement with A-Rod come just weeks before she's set to launch her Sticky & Sweet world tour, prompting some skeptics to say Madge has been manipulating the press to help ticket sales.

We know some celebrities will do just about anything to get their names in the paper (we wouldn't put anything past A-Rod), but we didn't think a superstar like Madonna would sink so low—or allow her management to.
