Fitness model Lauren Hunter says in an piece from The Enquirer that former baseball star Alex Rodriguez has been sexting Hunter, 34, in secret. The tabloid goes on to allege that A-Rod tried to get Hunter to come to Kansas where he was announcing on a Kansas City Royals/New York Yankees game in May but she didn’t make the trip due to child care issues. Hunter is the mother to three boys, one with former NFL running back Marcus Allen.
Here’s what you need to know about the fitness model.
Hours before Hunter’s Enquirer story surfaced, TMZ reported that Rodriguez was preparing for a “legal war with ex-lover who’s threatening extortion.” The gossip site says that the ex-lover was demanding $600,000 in exchange for keeping private texts between the two quiet. Lauren Hunter is not mentioned by TMZ.
According to The National Enquirer, Rodriguez first began seeing Hunter in 2011 while he was still dating Cameron Diaz. Quoting a source, the report reads:
On May 10 [Rodriguez] told [Hunter] he missed her, and on May 11 he asked her to send a video of her [doing a sex act].
The Enquirer also alleges that Rodriguez offered to pay Hunter $20,000 for a threesome with another woman.
Here’s Hunter talking about her relationship with Rodriguez:
I don’t think he’s sexually attracted to [J-Lo]. In bed with J-Lo, he’s probably picturing me. He likes me to always wear heels and lingerie and outfits, dress up as a schoolgirl. All the things I would to with him I wouldn’t to with anyone else.
Everything about him is passionate and loving and sweet, he’ll kiss your hair and cuddle…
But sex is not soft and gentle, he’s rough. He is good in bed, and well endowed; he’s circumcised! I don’t think he’s ever made love to anybody, ever. He disconnects, his problems take over…
In January 2014, Hunter gave birth to her and Marcus Allen’s son Drake Connor Allen. TMZ reports the two met on MySpace. Drake Allen was their third child, having two sons from a previous marriage.
At the time of Drake’s birth, Hunter was 31 and Allen was 53. It’s been rumored over the years that Allen once had an affair with O.J. Simpson’s wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. Allen married his first wife, Kathryn, in Simpson’s backyard.
Hunter has taken down her Instagram page and has not updated her Twitter since May 2015. The bio on her Twitter page reads:
Farm girl, Titled Swimwear and Fitness Competitor, Bikini Universe Finalist, Mother of 3 Strong Boys, Personal Trainer.
