Alex Rodriguez Jokes About 'Investing in Blinds' After Invasive Viral Bathroom Photo
Last month, the former Yankees player was captured sitting on the toilet in a photo that was taken through his New York City bathroom window
Alex Rodriguez may have had his privacy violated recently, but he is trying to move on from having his bathroom time made public.
Nearly a month after a photograph of the former Yankees player sitting on the toilet circulated around the Internet, Rodriguez, 43, spoke out about the incident during an appearance on Fox5’s Good Day New York.
Though Rodriguez revealed that he had no plans to take legal action over the invasive matter, he joked that he does, in fact, have plans to visit a store that sells blinds very soon.
“I’m certainly not suing,” Rodriguez told the hosts during Monday’s segment. “The one thing is, I actually do my best thinking there! I wasn’t ready for the picture. It is what it is.”
“I have to invest in some good blinds, and I think I am!” the former baseball player jokingly added.
The photo, which surfaced on May 16, shows Rodriguez sitting on the toilet in his New York City apartment bathroom.
When asked if he had determined who snapped the picture, Rodriguez admitted to the Fox5 hosts that his team didn’t know yet but confirmed that an investigation was still underway in an effort to prevent this from happening to someone else.
“We are still doing an investigation because you don’t want the next person for that to happen,” he shared. “It’s really a weird thing.”
While he made a joke about the situation, it is very serious and the sportsman said he was thankful he was the target and not his family.
“I’m happier that it was me [rather than] my better half [Jennifer Lopez] or one of the children.”
Rodriguez did not let the invasive photograph prevent him from enjoying time with his fiancée and their children in the weeks following the negative encounter.
The athlete-turned-businessman shares two daughters Natasha, 14 and Ella, 11, with ex Cynthia Scurtis, while Lopez, 49, shares 11-year-old twins Emme Maribel and Maximilian David with ex Marc Anthony.
On May 29, the retired MLB player joined Lopez and Anthony at son Max’s school concert, where he shared a video of himself sandwiched between the famously musically gifted former pair.
As kids can be heard singing Dolly Parton‘s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” in the background of the clip, Rodriguez panned his camera from Lopez to Anthony as they both dramatically mouthed the lyrics to the song.
“Those who can, do. Those who can’t, sit between two people that can and stay quiet! #imnotasinger,” Rodriguez captioned the post.
A day later, Rodriguez gushed over his eldest daughter following her middle school graduation.
“How is my beautiful angel going to be a freshman in high school?!” Rodriguez captioned an Instagram photo, which shows himself along with Lopez and Scurtis smiling alongside Natasha.
Rodriguez also remained present on social media this past weekend when he and Lopez took their daughters to the Ariana Grande concert in Miami at the American Airlines Arena.
Sharing footage from the concert, Rodriguez and Lopez’s daughters appeared to have a blast as they enthusiastically danced and sang the night away. The former Yankee even joked that “it was “20,000 teenagers + Jen and I in building.”
The girls later got to meet and hug the famous singer after the concert, which Rodriguez also documented on his Instagram story. “Thank you @arianagrande for the most incredible show & for being so kind to the kids!!” he happily captioned the video.
“I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away. [It was] ‘I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it’s nice,’ ” Lopez previously told PEOPLE of how well their families clicked.
