He may or may not have a painting of himself as a centaur above his bed

An ex of his told US Weekly:

'He was so vain,' his ex tells Us Weekly. 'He had not one, but two painted portraits of himself as a centaur. You know, the half man, half horse figure?'

However, Kate Hudson said she's never seen such art.

His Yankees teammates joked that he was obsessed with Derek Jeter ... in a weird way

From Tom Verducci's Joe Torre book, via the New York Daily News:

'The inside joke in the clubhouse was that Rodriguez's occupation with Jeter recalled the 1992 film 'Single White Female' in which a woman becomes obsessed with her roommate to the point of dressing like her.'

That sounds over the top, but OK.
