Former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is no stranger to tabloid news. In fact, one could argue he’s been a regular for many years. However, a new photo has gone viral and it could definitely spell trouble for the person who took it.
At an early age, we all learned from a children’s book that “Everyone Poops.” That applies to, well, everyone, including A-Rod. And for whatever reason someone decided to take a photo of the baseball legend on the throne at his fancy $17.5 million Park Avenue apartment, which he shares with fiancee Jennifer Lopez.
According to Page Six, the celebrity news and gossip hub of The New York Post, the photographer was likely at a Manhattan hedge fund next door and his legal team is trying to find out who took the toilet pic.
Apparently, when are you are worth millions of dollars, nothing is off limits.
The photo has made its rounds on social media, including Twitter and Instagram. It shows the famous baseball star in clear view, wearing a blue shirt, on the toilet in his luxury NYC pad. Somebody from the adjacent building is definitely going to pay the price for this, according to a source of Page Six.
“Alex’s lawyers are all over this. They are working hard to find out who the culprit is. It is a clear breach of privacy. The photo was obviously taken from the building next door, from a floor possibly parallel to Alex’s apartment. One of the hedge funds in the building next door will be getting a big lawsuit.”
Basically, someone is going to be in hot water. You cannot just take a private photo of Alex Rodriguez like this and completely expect to get away with it.
UPDATE (June 4):
Remember the big lawsuit that was expected to come from someone taking a picture of former Yankees Alex Rodriguez sitting on the toilet? Well, you can forget about it. A-Rod put it to rest himself.
Rodriguez told Fox5’s “Good Day New York” that they are still looking for who took the picture because it’s weird and he doesn’t want it to happen to someone else, but he’s over it.
“I’m certain’y not suing,” he said. “The one thing is, I actually do my best thinking there. I wasn’t ready for that picture. But look, it is what it is. I have to invest in some good blinds, and I think I am.”
The whole situation is rather bizarre, but one thing is certain: Whoever took that picture better be glad he did it to A-Rod and not Jennifer Lopez or any of his family. He wouldn’t be so cool about that.
