New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez wants his original pre-nupital agreement with wife Cynthia to stand in their divorce battle, the New York Daily News reports.
The 33-year-old, who is the highest-paid player in baseball with a $275 million contact, says in new papers being filed in Florida today that his marriage is “irretrievably broken” but he wants accusations he cheated to be removed from the court record.
Rodriguez argues that claims by his wife that he “emotionally abandoned his wife and children” and carried on “extramarital affairs and other marital misconduct” are “immaterial and impertinent and should be stricken.”
Cynthia is seeking to maintain her “high standard of living” through alimony and child support as well as their $12 million estate and “equitable distribution” of all assets.
Rodriguez’s filing states Cynthia is a “loving and nurturing mother” and he pledges to pay “reasonable and bona fide expenses” per a co-parenting agreement for daughters Natasha, 3, and Ella, 3 months.
