Remember that guy on the Baltimore Orioles who spit on an umpire 14 years ago? Well, he’s retired now and has entered the exciting world of “giving women AIDS” (allegedly).
According to court documents, baseball great Roberto Alomar’s wife claims that he "intentionally, with corrupt intent, concealed from [her] his physical condition in order to get her to have unprotected sex with him."
In Alomar’s defense, she probably wouldn’t have had unprotected sex with him if he held her close, looked into her loving eyes and whispered “by the way, I have AIDS.”
In case you’re keeping score at home – or have entered a Roberto Alomar AIDS accusation office pool – this is the second woman to lobby such a claim against him.
In 2009, Alomar’s then-girlfriend filed a lawsuit claiming he “had full-blown AIDS, but had encouraged her to keep having unprotected sex with him.”
(Seriously, AIDS aside, what’s this guy’s problem with condoms?)
Alomar has denied having the disease, but settled the case against his ex-girlfriend last May. His newest “seriously, what’s wrong with you?” lawsuit/divorce is still making its way through the judicial process and should come to a conclusion some time next year.
It’s nice to see the sport of baseball finally throwing some variety into their lawsuits against retired players. This whole steroid thing was getting kind of boring.
