One of Alex Rodriguez’s ex-girlfriends is “threatening to expose private messages” if A-Rod does not pay her $600,000, according to a TMZ report.

The report does not name the woman, but said that she and Rodriguez broke up in 2014. He was involved with former WWE diva Torrie Wilson as late as December 2013, when they were photographed by the Daily News together at David Ortiz’s charity golf tournament in the Dominican Republic.

Rodriguez has two daughters with ex-wife Cynthia, while J-Lo has twins with ex Marc Anthony. Rodriguez’s spokesman did not return a call for comment.
