(Newser) – Cynthia Rodriguez thinks that Madonna has broken up her marriage with the power of mysticism, friends of Yankee Alex Rodriguez's wife tell the Daily News. She apparently found a note in which the slugger calls Madonna his “true soulmate” and is convinced they're having an affair—and that dark arts are involved. “I feel like Madonna is using mind control over him,” she told one friend.

Rumors that Cynthia is having her own affair with Lenny Kravitz are untrue, the friends say. They paint a picture of a jilted wife, who has tearfully told them she still loves her husband. According to them, it was A-Rod who told her the marriage was over, and who suggested she visit Kravitz in Paris to clear her head.
