Roberto Alomar shocker

Wednesday, February 11, 2009  |  by 

This one is a bombshell; Roberto Alomar is being sued by his ex-girlfriend for $15 million dollars for allegedly giving her AIDS. Apparently he tested positive back in 2006, but this is the first that anyone has heard of this. That includes Roberto’s father Sandy, who says this is the first he has heard as well.

But wait, it gets even weirder. After sifting through the court documents, I noticed that Alomar’s ex claims that he told her that was raped by two men back when he was a 17 years old and that very well have been how he contracted the disease.

At this point, it's really "he said" vs. "she said". We all saw Roberto at Opening Day 2008, and he looked pretty healthy right? I find it really difficult to believe that this is true, because it’s a fairly substantial claim to make against one of the best second basemen of all time. Also, none of his family members are aware of his condition, and I imagine that something as huge as having HIV is pretty difficult to keep secret for an extended period of time.

I figure that this situation can go either one of two ways; either this woman wants to get a piece of Alomar’s money, or he really does have AIDS. If the latter is the case, I hope he’s receiving the best medical care possible. After all, if Magic Johnson is still kicking around, there must be some damn good drugs out there.


  1. I don't know whether it's true or not, but either way that's some tough news to digest.
