Divorce

While things appeared to be going full speed ahead professionally, Rodriguez's relationship with his wife, Cynthia Rodriguez, was troubled. Rumors of A-Rod's infidelity swirled, and on July 7, 2008, Cynthia filed for divorce, citing "emotional abandonment" of her and their two daughters as well as "extra marital affairs and other marital misconduct" by Rodriguez. Cynthia Rodriguez's lawyer at the time said A-Rod had "an affair of the heart" with pop star Madonna. (Photo: Rob Loud/Getty Images)
