A-Rod and the Madame

Kristin Davis, the Manhattan madam who supplied former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer with hookers, apparently also extended her services to beleaguered Yankee third basemen Alex Rodriguez. In a New York Daily News report released over the weekend, it was revealed that A-Rod regularly indulged in Davis's services and was smitten with the madam herself, wooing her with gifts and flowers and taking her out on several dates.

"In regard to Alex, all I can say is our paths have definitely crossed personally and professionally," confirmed Davis. A series of steamy email exchanges were uncovered that demonstrate just how desperate A-Rod was to spend time with Kristin, even though he could have any number of girls at his disposal. "Throughout the years, there were a number of clients that I befriended and it was not uncommon for them to want the women they can't have whether it be the phone bookers or the madam," says Davis.

Rodriguez and Davis first met at a gym in Philadelphia. The notorious madam had just opened up a new branch of her call-girl service in the city and had no idea who Alex Rodriguez was but says he was "hot as hell." Rodriguez was married at the time, but apparently had no qualms approaching the busty blond to ask her out later that same evening. She politely declined but gave him the number of her service.

However, Alex wasn't interested in any of the other girls, and repeatedly asked for Kristin directly. Because of his persistence she eventually relented, saying, "Alex didn't pay me . . . I went out with him just because he was so flattering. I couldn't not give in."
