Wife of Alex Rodriguez to File for Divorce in Miami

The highest paid player in Major League Baseball is expected to be served with papers for divorce today after allegedly having several affairs, including a relationship with one of the most influential pop superstars of the past twenty-five years, while his soon-to-be estranged wife flees to the City of Lights to find comfort from a rock star. This is a tabloid writer’s dream, and the entire story is expected to take place in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

You likely will recognize the above scenario as the divorce proceedings that are about to commence between Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez and his wife, Cynthia. A-Rod has been seen leaving Madonna’s Manhattan apartment at late hours, as his wife is spending time with Lenny Kravitz in Paris. Adulterous relationships have been adamantly denied by all parties involved.

Upon her return to the States and into a Miami-Dade courtroom, Mrs. Rodriguez will ask to be named the primary residential parent of their daughters and also will be seeking alimony. There is a prenuptial agreement that was signed one month before the 2002 wedding which certainly will dictate much of the financial settlement. Cynthia Rodriguez has retained in attorneys in both Houston and Miami, as the wedding took place in Texas and the couple’s primary residence is in Coral Gables (just outside of Miami), to make sure that deliberations proceed smoothly.

As one of Mrs. Rodriguez’s attorneys, Maurice Kutner, told the The Miami Herald, his client “has exhausted every opportunity to salvage the marriage, and that Alex has emotionally abandoned her and the children and has left her with no choice but to divorce him.”

At Bertolino LLP, our typical client may not have the paparazzi appeal that Alex Rodriguez brings to a courtroom. However, we value each person who walks into our Austin, Houston or San Antonio offices with the respect and attention he or she deserves. We have attorneys who specialize in divorce law (as well as celebrity divorces) and we would like the opportunity to assist you if you are going through this difficult situation. Please contact us and let’s discuss your situation.
