A Look Back at Alex Rodriguez's Dating History
From his time as a young baseball player with the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees to his more recent headlines as Jennifer Lopez's ex-fiancé (with all the buzz around her reunion with Ben Affleck and their subsequent engagement), Alex Rodriguez is no stranger to the spotlight. Most recently, it's been rumored that he may be linked to fitness professional Kathryne Padgett. Over the years, though, he has been associated with more than just a few (very famous) women. While some of his connections were just rumored flings or a short series of dates, others were long-term relationships that played out in the public eye. Remember when he dated Cameron Diaz for over a year? Or Kate Hudson for several months? Keep reading for a trip down memory lane, and take a peek at Rodriguez's past love life.
Confirmed: Cynthia Scurtis
Rodriguez and Scurtis were married for six years and share two daughters together, Natasha and Ella. They met in Miami at a gym and, over time, became friends and then something more. Scurtis filed for a divorce in 2008, and though their journey has not always been smooth sailing, the two are now pros of peaceful and amicable coparenting.
Rumors linking the pair surfaced shortly after Rodriguez's wife filed for divorce. Madonna released a statement saying, "I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez."
Confirmed: Bethenny Frankel
Rumors swirled that Rodriguez and Frankel were an item, and the "Real Housewives of New York" star eventually revealed that they went on a couple dates together. "I went out with him on two dates," she told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live."

Rodriguez and Hudson dated for seven months before breaking up in December 2009. While together, they were spotted showing some PDA at baseball games and events.
