Rodriguez Spokesman: '100 Percent False'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A spokesman for Alex Rodriguez says steamy allegations of the New York Yankees star bringing call girls to his former Upper West Side condo are “defamatory” and “100 percent false.”

A new book by author Michael Gross, “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, The World’s Most Powerful Address,” contains the claim that A-Rod brought prostitutes to his pad “usually two at a time, twice a week.”

Quotes from the book were published by multiple media outlets late Wednesday, including this doozie from an unnamed building worker: “One time he had two go up, they came down and left, and 10 minutes later, Cameron Diaz walks in. He doesn’t care. I hate the guy. He thought he was God.”

Rodriguez’s spokesman, Ron Berkowitz, issued a vehement denial to the New York Daily News.

“The allegations concerning prostitutes are 100 percent false, and therefore the author of the book cannot possibly have a single shred of evidence to back them up.”

Gross’ book is scheduled for release in March 2014.

“It’s comical that we even have to waste our time responding to such stories,” Berkowitz said, “but not surprising as certain people have an agenda against Alex.”

The embattled slugger is currently appealing a 211-game suspension related to Major League Baseball’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal.
