Hollywood A-listers Matt Damon, Toby Maguire and Leonardo Dicaprio are being accused of being involved in a high stakes illegal poker ring, and now the scandal has infiltrated the sports world. Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is being investigated by the MLB in connection with the gambling ring. Poker pro Dan Blizerian revealed how things quickly got out of hand during a Beverly Hills high stakes poker game, “I would estimate A-Rod lost, like, a few thousand dollars that night. After everything that happened, he paid-up and left.”
ESPN New York spoke to a source within the MLB who said, “We’re talking to people involved in the investigation and we’re taking this very seriously. Because he had been warned about this before, I would say a possible suspension would be very much in play.”
Cameron Diaz was on David Letterman to promote her new movie Bad Teacher. The normally relationship shy Diaz talked openly about her relationship with NY Yankee Alex Rodriguez (so much for breakup rumors) and even joked about the famous Popcorn-Gate at the Super Bowl!
Throughout their courtship, Diaz stayed mum on their relationship only confirming they were dating in May. Diaz told Britain’s Elle magazine, “Yes, Alex is my boyfriend. It’s not a secret any more.”
This is not A-Rod’s first high profile romance with a Hollywood starlet… the Yankees slugger was together with Kate Hudson during his 2009 World Series win and dated Madonna, who was reportedly responsible for the breakup of Rodriguez’s ex-wife Cynthia.
Jersey Chaser Cameron Diaz is green lighting a movie project about a baseball romantic comedy and wants her Yankee slugger boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, to star in it. According to the Daily Express, “Cameron actually has an idea for a romantic comedy set around Major League Baseball…She’s very excited about developing her own projects and the fact this one is about a baseball player means she has good reason to spend more time with A-Rod and the Yankees.”
In the past, A-Rod has been known to be very supportive of his girlfriend’s careers, evening playing Madonna in the Yankees clubhouse. Diaz and Rodriguez started dating last summer, and though the couple split in the fall, things seem to be better than ever. Get the popcorn ready!
