(Newser) – The mud-slinging A-Rod divorce battle has ended amicably, reports the New York Daily News. Alex and Cynthia Rodriquez ended their 5-year marriage with a private settlement, said the attorney for the Yankees slugger, who offered no details. Cynthia filed for divorce in July, citing her hubby's "long period of infidelity" with mistresses including Madonna, whom Cynthia accused of brainwashing A-Rod with Jewish mysticism.
