Now this relationship was a strikeout! In a new interview, Alex Rodriguez was pretty much ripped to shreds by one of his ex-girlfriend’s mothers. The former Yankee dated Anne Wojcicki for a year and a half, and her mother, Esther Wojcicki, just opened up about their seemingly troubled relationship to The New York Times.
“He had no academic background. We couldn’t have an intellectual conversation about anything. His main interest in life was something that none of us had ever focused on, which was baseball. He could park himself in front of a TV and watch baseball for 10 hours a day. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to go on the yacht with Anne because the TV might not be working,” she told the publication.

“We couldn’t go anywhere with him. If we went to Target to look for clothes for the kids, all of a sudden we’d be looking around and people would be saying, ‘We just want a selfie with A-Rod.’ He can’t walk across Central Park. He has to take a cab. That will work better with [his current girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez] because she’s like, ‘Take a picture of me anytime.’”
However, Esther did add that she was a fan of the father-of-two’s character and family members. “He was a very nice man,” she shared. “He seemed to be genuinely in love with Anne. But I right away figured out this was a mismatch.” A-Rod has also had his fair share of high-profile relationships and two marriages — and now, he seems happier than ever with the Shades of Blue star and singer since they started dating. Recently there’s been rumors that the couple is ready to move in together — and possibly tie the knot!
“There were opportunities for Jen and Alex to work together and get into business before but Alex wanted to hold off until he knew he wanted to get married to her. Now, Alex is ready to give her roles in some of his businesses so he’s clearly seriously thinking about marriage,” said a source. We’re waiting impatiently, J-Rod!
