(Newser) – Alex Rodriguez made a quick about-turn from partying to the arms of his ex-wife as the steroids scandal broke last weekend. The defamed Yankee was partying in the Bahamas when news of his steroid use broke, but arrived at Monday's confessional with Cynthia Rodriguez in tow, the Daily News reports. Cynthia sat off-camera during the interview, said one witness, with tears in her eyes. She divorced the philanderer last year, naming Madonna among his many mistresses.

"I don't think you're going to see a reconciliation between Alex and Cynthia, but he sees her regularly with the children," says a source, who adds their 4-year-old daughter is sick. "There's nothing like a sick child to make two parents forget their differences."
