(Newser) – Though Madonna denies romance with Alex Rodriguez, she recently introduced the slugger to pals at a dinner party, reports the Daily Mirror. The intimate gathering in New York annoyed Guy Ritchie, since it included some of their mutual friends. The party “showed a great deal of disrespect to him so soon after the announcement of their break-up,” a source said.

“There’s no love lost between Guy and A-Rod and the thought of him being introduced to all their mutual friends is just too much,” the source said of Madonna's soon-to-be-ex and the New York Yankees third baseman.
