Alex Rodriguez is being warned by his friends to not use his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis in the wake of his split from Jennifer Lopez.
According to Closer UK, the friends of Alex Rodriguez were surprised to see the two hanging out years after their divorce.
A source claimed that the baseball star is just leaning on his ex-wife for support especially since Lopez has already moved on with Ben Affleck.
“Alex is a man scorned and he’s doing anything to get back at Jen. Pals have urged him to not use Cynthia as a pawn in what seems to be a game of tit-for-tat,” the source said.

However, Rodriguez, allegedly, told his friends that his actions are genuine. And even though his divorce from Scurtis ended bitterly, he still wants to become close to his ex-wife again. And he’s, allegedly, doing it for his daughters, Natasha and Ella.
In recent weeks, there have been claims that Rodriguez is struggling after learning that Lopez and Affleck are now together.

A source told Us Weekly that Rodriguez is still bitter about the split.
“Alex is still very sore and in a world of pain. It’s the first time anyone can remember him being dumped like this, at least publicly. Seeing her running straight back to Ben’s arms is a real kick in the teeth. There’s a part of him that still clings onto the hope that they’ll wind up together again but deep down he’s had to accept the harsh truth that she’s over him and moving on with Ben. It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality,” the source said.
All is well with the baseball star
However, it didn’t take Alex Rodriguez very long to move on from his former fiancée.
Last month, the former athlete posted a cryptic tweet on his Instagram account.
“I am about to step into a new beginning in my life. Anything that doesn’t serve me is clearing out of my life. New levels are unlocking for me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am remaining patient and know that this new phase of my life is coming,” Alex Rodriguez wrote.
