Troubled Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is currently feeling the heat from the MLB front office, as he faces a possible lifetime ban for alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs. Though most frustrated Yankee fans are probably fed up with A-Rod, at least one New Yorker is supporting him.
Jay Z has lent his hand to A-Rod through legal support, as Beyonce’s lawyer Jordan Siev recently represented Rodriguez in a call with Yankees frontmen like GM Brian Cashman.
Rodriguez told WFAN he joined forces with Siev to “make sure everything is documented.”
A-Rod is also making use of Ron Berkowitz, who represents Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency. Berkowitz is a longtime friend of Rodriguez, as is Hov.
“Alex has been friends with Jay and Ron for years. It’s not unusual that they’d want to help or give advice where they can,” one source said. “But I don’t believe they are talking about signing him.”
