This whole ARod-Madonna affair has been hard on Jose Canseco. Such news is knocking him out of the media spotlight. But Jose has decided to grab the bull by the horns and weigh in on the situation - and keep himself in the public eye.
The celeb-monitoring TV show “EXTRA” caught up with the slugger to get his thoughts on the Yank & the Skank. And Canseco truly believes A-Rod and Madonna had a extramarital thing going on - since Alex has always been like that:
“When we were in Chicago, I was setting up Alex with girls. They were actually strippers. It’s hard enough to have a relationship in today’s society, but a guy like Alex Rodriguez — good looking, money, playing with the Yankees. It’s over.”
Of course, it’s no secret that Canseco loves to talk smack about A-Rod any chance he can get. We all fondly remember how Jose accused Alex of trying to acquire steroids.
As for the current marital mess, Canseco says that he feels sorry for A-Rod’s soon-to-be ex-wife Cynthia, but adds that he “knew that marriage wasn’t going to last at all.”
Jose also tries to explain why A-Rod & Madonna are so allegedly infatuated with each other. Is it some kind of publicity stunt?
When asked if the alleged affair between Madonna and Rodriguez was just for publicity, he responded, “I don’t think it’s a PR scam. I think she’s genuinely interested in Alex.” As for why Rodriguez’s may be intrigued by Madonna, Canseco explained, “She’s definitely a figure of interest… she’s in great shape. Powerful figure.”
Hold on a sec - wasn’t Jose himself romantically (for lack of a better word) linked to the Material Girl back in the day?
“We were just friends. Nothing sexual. I kissed her one time. We spoke a lot everyday. I really wasn’t sexually interested in her.”
Yet, he says it was a different story the other way around. JUST JARED uncovers a recent interview Canseco did with US WEEKLY, claiming that Madonna wanted to have his child:
Where did she approach you? Where was the first time you met? How did it happen? At her house I think it was in the Hollywood Hills. Our people set it up. Her people approached me saying she was interested in meeting me. She had a Cuban child and wanted another one. She wanted to get married and have a child with me.
That was her intention to have a child with you? Yeah, I’m Cuban and she wanted a Cuban child.
So she was interested in your genes. Yeah, I’m Cuban 6-foot-3, athletic, built.
Wow. There’s not much more we can add to that. So, we’ll close by wishing Jose good luck in his bout against Vai Sikahema tomorrow in Atlantic City. We’re confident that tickets are still available.
