A former trainer for Alex Rodriguez said the star ballplayer’s interest in kabbalah caused the break-up of his marriage.
Cynthia Rodriguez filed for divorce Monday in Miami saying the New York Yankee “emotionally abandoned” her.
Trainer Dodd Romero told the ABC television show “Good Morning America” Monday that the pop singer Madonna “brainwashed” Rodriguez by interesting him in Kabbalah.
“Something has pulled him away from his strong family values and has caused him to search and look for something that really isn’t out there,” Romero said, according to the ABC News Web site.
