They're just "friends" - or so he'd like us to believe!
Madonna has A-Rod so well trained. She probably had a chip installed in his brain and controls him remotely from wherever she is.
People managed to catch up with the monolith man and asked him to comment for the first time on his relationship with Her Madgesty.
"We're friends," he says, his eyes glazing over, "We're friends - that's it," adding, "I can tell you this. I have never been on a plane with her."
Well, that says it all!
But, he does admit he's been to 2 of her concerts, saying that he finds the rumors surrounding him and Madonna laughable, "I've read that I went to 20 [concerts]. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true."
A source close to the baseball player says that the rumors of the couple being anymore than just friends are "completely, unequivocably false" believing that the more modifiers one adds to a word, the more serious it sounds.
As for A-Rod's implanted chip, it's programed that so whenever questions get a little tricky, A-Rod begins to talk about charity.
"When you're among 200 kids and teaching the game of baseball it gives you an amazing feeling, just that you may inspire kids to reach their goals, whether it's baseball or whatever their goals might be," he says of his recent "charity" visit to Mexico City.
It's also, coincidentally, the reason he and Madonna became such good pals at a Malawi fundraiser. He says, "We shared a lot of the same commitments toward helping children."
His good will continues toward a few other charity projects, including pitching in with a new learning center at the Boys and Girls Club in Miami where Rodriguez himself hung out as a kid. He says, "I feel a great responsibility to not only give money, but to be there, and to be seen by the kids."
A-Rod is such a great guy! We bet you almost forgot that, oh yeah, he left his wife, Cynthia, amidst cheating scandals.
Of the other woman who also holds his balls in a vice, A-Rod says, "I have a wonderful relationship with Cynthia" and that "honestly, seven days a week, which has been great. We both have a lot of respect for each other and she's a great lady."
And just so Madonna won't get mad, he adds, "I have a lot of respect for her [Madonna]. She's very committed to making the world a better place. She's had an amazing career" and one more time: "We're friends. That's it."
