NEW YORK (AP) — Roberto Alomar’s wife has accused the former baseball star in divorce papers of having unprotected sex with her despite knowing that he is HIV-positive.
The New York Post reported Thursday that Maria Del Pilar Rivera Alomar filed paperwork in Florida alleging Alomar “knew prior to his first sexual contact with (her) that he was HIV-positive.”
The lawsuit is the second in two years to accuse Alomar of having unprotected sex while knowingly carrying the virus. A former girlfriend, Ilya Dall, filed a lawsuit in February 2009 accusing him of having unprotected sex with her over the course of four years. Dall sought $15 million from Alomar, and the case was eventually settled last May.
Alomar’s then-girlfriend Rivera defended him at the time, calling Dall’s lawsuit “a vile lie.”
