Joseph Tacopina, one of A-Rod’s lawyers, said that Rodriguez will only testify if MLB Commissioner Bud Selig agrees to testify.
A spokesman for Alex Rodriguez says steamy allegations of the Yankees star bringing prostitutes to his former Upper West Side condo are “defamatory” and “100 percent false.”
The suit claims that Bud Selig and MLB have tried to smear Rodriguez’s reputation to “gloss over” Selig’s past inaction and tacit approval of the use of performance-enhancing substances in baseball.
Ron Berkowitz, a spokesman for Roc Nation Sports, told ESPN that the Brooklyn native is now licensed to be an NBA agent. Jay-Z is licensed to be an MLB agent as well, MLB Players Association spokesman Greg Bouris told the network.
Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z reopened his New York City nightspot, the 40/40 Club, this week after a renovation, only to have its kitchen promptly shut down for health code violations.
