(Newser) – It seems only yesterday Alex Rodriguez was dabbling in Kabbalah to please galpal Madonna. But those days are over, and the Yankees slugger has moved on to a new woman and a new religion. The “religious chameleon,” as one pal calls him, is now flirting with Buddhism to make new lady friend Kate Hudson happy, the New York Daily News reports.

Hudson has been working her prayer beads during Yankee games, helping A-Rod beat his playoff slump in the series against the Angels. Mom—and fellow Buddhist—Goldie Hawn “more than approves of Alex,” the source adds. “If he becomes a Buddhist, it'll only seal the deal.”
