New Book Claims A-Rod Loved His Threesomes


The holidays are nearly upon us, and you know what that means: Christmas shopping. And just in time comes a new book, “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, The World’s Most Powerful Address,” by author Michael Gross.

It’s the story of all of the rich and famous who have occupied the posh Manhattan apartment building, which Alex Rodriguez had rented for $30,000 a month. According to Gross, much debauchery ensued. Excerpt:

A building worker told Gross, “[A-Rod] got hookers all the time. Usually two at a time, two times a week. One time he had two go up, they came down and left, and 10 minutes later, Cameron Diaz walks in.”

“Fifteen [Central Park West] became A-Rod’s home plate,” Gross writes, where the $275 million man scored with Madonna and Kate Hudson, as well as Diaz. “But apparently they weren’t enough for A-Rod.”

Gross, author of “740 Park”, which focused on the Manhattan elite of the ’40s and ’50s, now tells a tale of such residents as Denzel Washington, Jeff Gordon, and Sting, in addition to A-Rod. From Amazon: “Hedge fund runners, Russian oligarchs, and the heads of Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Lehman Brothers, Google, and Yahoo!, who live larger than anyone in history.”

The book release comes just as news was breaking of a confrontation between rival attorneys at a hearing concerning Rodriguez’ steroids suspension. The spat occurred on Oct. 2, and allegedly involved A-Rod’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, trying to attack Julio Ayala, one of the lawyers representing Anthony Bosch, who is MLB’s chief witness in the case.

Rodriguez is currently preparing to appeal his 211-game MLB suspension.
