Cameron! Kate! Madonna! Alex Rodriguez’s Dating History

Posted on

 

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are officially a new couple, but the former Yankees slugger, 41, is no stranger to dating famous ladies. From Cameron Diaz to Kate Hudson to Madonna, Rodriguez has a long history of dating beautiful blondes who can be found on IMDB.

In 2009, Hudson spent the summer attending – and being endlessly photographed – at Rodriguez’s Yankees games, both in New York and on the road. She even brought her mother Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell to games and was coined A-Rod’s good luck charm after he won the World Series while dating her.

But the two split after only a few months and Rodriguez soon began seeing Diaz. The pair caused an internet frenzy when she was caught on camera feeding him popcorn at a Super Bowl game.

“It was the only piece of popcorn that I even put near his face, and they happened to have the camera on right when I did it,” she later explained to David Letterman.

The couple parted ways after a year of dating but Rodriguez remained fond of the actress and called her “one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever met, and just an amazing light.”

Most recently, the former baseball player broke his blonde starlet streak by dating tech CEO Anne Wojcicki, who was previously married to Google founder Sergey Brin.  The MLB star and the 23andMe co-founder were spotted together at the Vanity Fair Super Bowl Party in San Francisco in February 2016, but called it quits a year later. In a statement to PEOPLE,  Wojcicki confirmed the split, calling the retired Yankees star a “wonderful guy.”

“He’s a wonderful guy. I adore him and his friends and his family, but cross country relationships are hard,” she said.

But it was Madonna who was caught up in Rodriguez’s messy divorce from his wife of six years Cynthia Scurtis, with whom he has two children, Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8.

When Scurtis filed for divorce in 2008 she alleged in court papers that A-Rod had “emotionally abandoned” her and their children and had a series of affairs. Her lawyer also said Rodriguez had an “affair of the heart” with Madonna that was the “last straw.”

A source tells PEOPLE Lopez knows about his past relationships and is “being cautious.”

“She is aware that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious,”  says the source. “For now, it’s just fun. She is single and enjoys dating.”
