Rumor: A-Rod Dating Ex-Wife of Google Founder
Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has dated a bunch of women since splitting from his wife in 2008, including Madonna, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, and most recently Torrie Wilson. He also dated a bunch of strippers before he split from his wife in 2008, but that’s another story. The point here is that, in recent years, A-Rod has shown himself to be a fan of glamorous blonde celebrities.
That’s what makes this story here so interesting. According to the New York Daily News, which has “a source close to the situation,” A-Rod is currently dating Anne Wojcicki, the ex-wife of Google founder Sergey Bruni. And not only is 42-year-old Wojcicki not blonde (or a stripper), but she’s actually incredibly smart and successful.
Wojcicki went to Yale, where she played hockey and earned a degree in biology. After graduating she spent 10 years as a healthcare investment analyst before founding 23andMe, a biotech company that invented a home genome test that Time declared ‘Invention of the Year’ in 2008. So, she’s kind of awesome and way too good for A-Rod, who has cheated at baseball multiple times over the course of his career and reportedly has a painting of himself as a centaur hanging over his bed.
But who am I to judge? The heart wants what the heart wants. And if Anne Wojcicki’s heart wants a man who once kissed himself in the mirror for a spread in Details magazine, so be it.
Of course, the Daily News source says A-Rod and Wojcicki have only “gone on a few dates” and are “still getting to know each other.” So Wojcicki’s heart may yet come to its senses.
