(Newser) – While rumors swirl over Alex Rodgriguez's late nights with Madonna, the Yankee's wife has ditched him for rocker Lenny Kravitz, the New York Post claims. Cynthia Rodriguez, who has yet to file divorce papers, has spent the past four nights shacked up with the Grammy-winner at his pad in Paris, leaving their two young daughters in the care of others in Miami, the Post says.

But Kravitz is denying it, telling US Weekly, "There is absolutely no affair between Cynthia Rodriguez and myself. This is unequivocally 100% not true." Kravitz says Cynthia is a friend, and is visiting with "Alex's trainer, his wife and their baby girl," he adds. "She came here to escape from everything happening in New York City. I opened my home to her as a friend and I find it extremely hurtful that I am now being referred to as an adulterer."
