Detroit Tigers super star Miguel Cabrera had a lousy season with plenty strike outs. Now, a woman in Florida has thrown him a curve.
The woman is suing the married Cabrera in Orange County, Fla., saying he isn't paying enough to support for two children he fathered, reports Tony Paul of the Detroit News. The legal showdown that could cost the superstar more than $100,000 a month.
Cabrera has been married to Rosangel for 15 years. They have three children.
Belkis Mariela Rodriguez, 35, of Orlando, sued Cabrera in Florida in August after the Tigers first baseman allegedly slashed child-support payments, a move that coincided with the Tigers veteran helping her buy a nearly $1 million home earlier this year. Cabrera is one of the world’s wealthiest athletes, earning more than $30 million a year, but is fighting over how much money the children should receive.
Cabrera, 34, wants paternity tests conducted on the children, born in 2013 and 2015, and has accused Rodriguez of extorting him, according to court records. It’s unclear if those tests have been administered. Cabrera currently is paying her more than $6,200 a month.
