Alex Rodriguez To Spend Thanksgiving With Family

Despite a story to the contrary, Alex Rodriguez will be spending Thanksgiving with his wife, Cynthia, and their two kids – not Madonna.

The New York Post reported Tuesday (citing Access Hollywood) that Cynthia wrote an e-mail to friends slamming her ex for “abandoning his kids on Thanksgiving to be with Madonna …She called and he ran on her command back to New York City…Gross!”

But a source close to A-Rod tells “It’s not true. I spoke to her this morning.

“He’s going to be with Cynthia and her entire family for Thanksgiving, and this has been planned for months,” the insider adds. “It’s quite a big celebration.”

“They have a large family get together every year,” the source tells Us. “It was always his intention to go to the family get together with her family, and it includes a whole array of relatives.”

Plus, “he’s not even in New York,” where Madonna lives, the insider adds.
