A-Rod Officially Single!

Alex Rodriguez’s divorce is official. (You’re up, Madonna.) Terms of the settlement are private, but A-Rod said he would only give his now ex-wife Cynthia what was required in their prenup, and threatened to make her pay his legal fees if she challenged what was in that agreement. After filing for dissolution of her five-year marriage to the Yankee slugger in July, Cynthia Rodriguez made a number of relatively mild demands.

Who knows if she actually got the Coral Gables mansion and ability to send his daughters to private school? But she does still believe he had an affair with Madonna, and you can’t put a price on that.

NYDN: The ugly divorce battle that painted Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez as a serial adulterer and “brainwashed” beau of pop icon Madonna is over.

Rodriguez and his wife, Cynthia, announced Thursday night they have peacefully settled their multimillion-dollar divorce case.

“Cynthia and Alex Rodriguez have amicably resolved their dissolution of marriage proceedings,” read a terse statement released by the superstar ball player’s lawyer, Alan Kluger

In her divorce petition, Cynthia Rodriguez, 35, demanded the couple’s $12 million waterfront estate in Coral Gables, Fla., and “equitable distribution” of all assets acquired during the marriage.

She also asked for alimony and child support from A-Rod, who made $28 million this season. She asked for life and health insurance and enough to pay for private schools so she and their two daughters can maintain the “high standard of living” they’re used to.

Alex Rodriguez countered that he was only willing to give her what was required in their prenup and threatened to make her pay his legal fees if she challenged the agreement and lost. Kluger said A-Rod and Cynthia Rodriguez had the best interest of their children, Natasha, 3, and Ella, 5 months, at heart throughout their negotiations.
