'Dinner for one': Alex Rodriguez who shared cryptic IG post reportedly splits with Kathryne Padgett
The 47-year-old baseball shortstop had reportedly been dating the 25-year-old Texas-based fitness instructor, Kathryne Padgett since January
CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA: American former professional baseball shortstop and third baseman, Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez (A-Rod) becomes single again after splitting up with the 25-year-old Texas-based fitness instructor, Kathryne Padgett. The 47-year-old had reportedly been dating the Texan NPC bodybuilding competitor since January.
Page Six reported on Monday, September 5 that the baseball shortstop and his girlfriend, Kathryne Padgett, who is 21 years younger than the former MLB star "broke up."
A source told Page Six that they remain friends saying, "They're good friends - they're just each single. They're super tight. It's all good." The alleged insider further said, "Alex is having fun and hanging out with his family." A separate source claimed that Kathryne has been "noticeably absent" from A-Rod's engagements of late. "They parted ways, but remain great friends. He's concentrating on his family and his businesses," added the informant.
Seemingly hinting that he's no longer dating anyone, A-Rod turned to his Instagram story to post a cryptic message, before the news of A-Rod and Kathryne's split broke. He uploaded a story of a meal in front of a TV with a caption that read, "Dinner for one… Yankees game."
A-Rod and 25- years-old, Kathryne were first seen together at a Green Bay Packers football game back in January. While earlier this year, in June, the now-former couple jetted off for a romantic summer getaway in Italy. Despite keeping their relationship mostly private, they were also spotted at a Minnesota Timberwolves match - the NBA side co-owned by Rodriguez.
However, many sources have claimed that the relationship between A-Rod and Kathryne wasn't serious and was just for fun. An insider claims, "Kathryne's a great girl, but they're not serious. They're just dating. They're having fun, that's it." A-Rod was focused on his family life with daughters Natasha, who is 17, and 14-year-old Ella, who he has with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. He himself insisted on focusing more on having family quality time in July.
Speaking to Martha Stewart on her eponymous podcast, he said, "You know Martha, thank goodness, no regrets. Life is good. I'm very fortunate. I wake up every morning and thank the good Lord for my health, for my beautiful daughters, who are now 17 and 14." When asked if he's dating anyone, he added, "I'm actually just spending a lot, a lot of time with my girls. Trying to be at home more."
