A-Rod wants to return to his old apartment at posh 15 Central Park West, but the building’s management is blocking him at the fancy front door, according to the NY Daily News' Confidenti@l.
The disgraced Yankee third baseman — who used to rent the bachelor pad at the ultra-exclusive building and wants to return — is being squeezed out by the owners because of all the negative press he stirs up. He’s also being blacklisted because of his inclusion in Michael Gross’ book “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, the World’s Most Powerful Address.”
According to the book, the egotistical slugger had an insatiable libido, and his ritzy apartment became a revolving door for high-priced call girls, “usually two at a time, twice a week.”
“He got hookers all the time,” one unidentified staffer told Gross. This was at the same time Rodriguez was romancing Cameron Diaz.
“One time he had two go up, they came and left, and 10 minutes later, Cameron Diaz walks in,” the source tells Gross in the book. “He doesn’t care. I hate the guy. He thought he was God.” Another staffer describes him in the tome as a “douche.”
On the scandal-plagued A-Rod's interest in returning to the building, Gross told the gossip site that management’s attitude is “seriously redefining snobbery.”
“Considering the number of noisy, pushy hedgies and funny-money foreigners in residence, the bar is already set pretty low,” he said.
At the time, A-Rod’s spokesman Ron Berkowitz strenuously denied the call-girl claims, calling them “100% false” and “defamatory.”
Our source on A-Rod’s attempted return said that the staff and management’s dislike of him has nothing to do with celebrity. Other famous folk who have shared the A-list address include Denzel Washington, Sting, Kelsey Grammer and Mark Wahlberg.
“They don’t bring drama the way A-Rod does,” said the Confidenti@l source.
The suspended baseball star, who has also dated Madonna and Kate Hudson, has been involved since 2011 with Torrie Wilson.
