Madonna and her rumoured lover Alex Rodriguez reportedly jetted to New York's Hamptons district in private helicopters last week to spend four hours together
Madonna and her rumoured lover Alex Rodriguez reportedly jetted to New York's Hamptons district to spend four hours together.
Madonna - who announced earlier this month that she and husband Guy Ritchie are getting a divorce after nearly eight years of marriage - and baseball player Alex, nicknamed A-Rod, allegedly used private helicopters to fly to the US location, where they stayed in comedian Jerry Seinfeld's house.
A source said: "The Seinfelds have been friends with Madonna for years. They're neighbours on the West Side, so it's really no surprise. And Jerry and his wife Jessica go to her concerts whenever she's in town."
The couple reportedly arrived in separate helicopters, 40 minutes after each other, for the intimate break on October 21.
The source added: "After Alex arrived at the mansion, there was a 40-minute break and then Madonna landed at the same airstrip. A dark SUV (sports utility vehicle) and Jerry in another Porsche both pulled up and picked up Madonna and they headed back to Jerry's place.
"When they arrived at the Seinfeld home, Madonna poked her head out the window and could be clearly seen."
Madonna, 50, and Alex, 33, spent four hours at the mansion before heading back to Manhattan.
The source told the New York Post newspaper: "About four hours later, the dark SUV left the house and took them all back to the airport. Madonna and the Seinfelds could clearly be seen getting out and piling into the helicopter that had taken Madonna there in the first place. They left together. Several minutes later, the helicopter that carried A-Rod also left."
Representatives for Jerry Seinfeld and Alex had no comment, while Madonna's spokesperson said she was "unaware of the meeting".
