Curtis lived very much of a drama-free life until she met her former husband Alex.
First Encounter with Alex Rodriguez – 1996
The pair first met on the Stairmaster as the Body and Soul gym. That’s when Alex showed interest in beautiful Scurtis and soon approached her. As per some of the reports, Cynthia was not actually into Alex in the beginning but later she gave in and started dating him. As time passed by the couple realized they are into one another and dated for 6 long years before exchanging the wedding ring.
On her thirtieth birthday, the former baseball player popped the question to Scurtis in a very romantic way. At first, Scurtis was pretty hesitant to marry Alex due to her very religious family, background but later the couple worked it out the tied a knot in 2002 with the blessing of both of their families.
The pair exchanged their wedding vows in a very private and intimate ceremony in the presence of their close friends and family in Texas.
Trouble in Paradise
After tying the knot, Cynthia quit all her job and started assisting her husband to pursue this professional baseball career. Only after two years of marriage, the couple moved to New York in 2004, when Rodriguez became a New York Yankee. Things went pretty good for the couple until the cheating rumors about Rodriguez started stirring up. For a couple of rumors, Cynthia supported her husband as a loving wife. A source told the Daily News “She always said he was not cheating on her. She always really believed in him,”.
However, the news got wild spread in 2007, when the photos of Rodriguez with a woman circulated yet Scurtis stood by her man. During that time, she even wore “a white tank top with ‘f**k you’ printed on the back” to Yankee Stadium. Many people even assumed that she was throwing shade to the media firestorm.
Unfortunately for Scurtis, stripper-gate was the warning bell that he was not faithful towards their marriage. Eventually, she called it quits only 10 weeks after giving birth to their second daughter, Ella, in 2008. Many people even believed that Madonna was the reason for their split. As per a reliable source, Scurtis told one of her friends that her husband and Madonna had an affair and she even claimed she found a note Rodriguez wrote Madonna calling her his “true soulmate”.
Cheating Allegations & Divorce Procedure
Only after 3 months of filing for divorce, the pair split from each other. The former couple officially split in September 2008. Also as per the report, the pair shared a prenuptial agreement. According to the petition filed in Miami-Dade “The marriage of the parties is irretrievably broken because of the husband’s extramarital affairs and other marital misconduct”. The petition also added A-Rod “emotionally abandoned his wife and children.” Ironically, the divorce papers were filed the day after A-Rod hit his 536th home run.
Being a mother, Scurtis herself asked for primary custody of the kids, alimony, child support. Also, she requested for the $12 million worth waterfront home in Coral Gables, Florida. Yet, for the A-Rod’s alleged infidelities, Scurtis took the high road by not publicly naming who was allegedly involved with her husband for the sake of her children. However, Madonna denied all the cheating rumors with A-Rod as she explained herself by saying, “I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez,”.
Along with her hectic divorce issue, Cynthia got dragged into another court law-suit. Her younger brother, Constantine Scurtis announced to sue A-Rod in a civil suit of $100 million in 2015. Constantine also alleged that the baseball slugger used his family’s joint real estate business to commit insurance and mortgage fraud after Hurricane Ike. Similarly, he sued the former Yankee for various other frauds.
Later, Alex threatened Cynthia to cut the monthly financial support to their children. She revealed how her former husband forced her to take his side against her brother in a mail to her brother. While Alex was talking about cutting off child support, he wasn’t joking as that’s what he did in 2018.
Rod claimed that he was making very little money as he was no more playing baseball and he was paying his wife way too much for the child support. He also reported that his income dropped by 90 percent from $30 million to $3 million. Also per their divorce agreement, the child support was supposed to change when Rodriguez retired from the Yankees.
