Blind Items Revealed

July 19, 2013

This former A list athlete who is still an A list celebrity, is trying to make a comeback. He is also trying to doge a lawsuit involving one of his businesses. A man ended up with two broken legs at the celebrity's gym, due to faulty equipment.  The staff kicked the man out and made him walk to the doctor. In response, the athlete said wasn't concerned and only cares about making sure he gets paid and that the guy was probably faking his injuries to get money from the athlete.

It's projection, you know that, right A-Rod?

Rach Around said...

Projection? The psychological concept? *scratches head*

Freya said...

If he has two broken legs, how did he walk to the doctor?

sandybrook said...

He makes $30 million a year he doesn't care even if this item is true (prolly not)

I always picture his painting of him as a centaur when I hear his name and giggle.

how do u walk with 2 broken legs?

Bacon Ranch said...

That guy should have traded out his settlement for Alex's new personal training sessions. They are called "Sit on the bench and clench" and they are FANTASTIC.

Stacey Charter said...

@freya, i would think, not very well or quickly. That's for sure LOL

A man with 2 broken legs was able to walk to the doctor? Then I agree the staff called it. He was probably faking his injuries to get money.

sandybrook said...

Well we called bs on this back in the day six months ago.

The Actress said...

Seems like the Karma Fairies caught up with him in the end.

Also ARod is NOT a former A list ahlete trying to make a comeback.

TalksTooMuch said...

Yes, he is a crooked bastage so he thinks everyone else is a crooked cheating bastage too

izz said...

did he walk to his lawyers office on his two broken legs too? Total BS

mynerva said...

You could walk with hairline fractures. It wouldn't be pleasant, but it's possible.

izz said...

also did he not have a phone? if i had broken both my legs i'd be calling an ambulance!

Rach Around said...

Ah cool, TTM. I have no idea who the hell he is aside from a dating love rat.

Theresa said...

I broke my leg and walked on it for a week before I went to the doctor. By that time I was in so much pain I knew something was very wrong with it. I couldn't imagine walking on two legs that felt like that though. To give this guy the benefit of the doubt, maybe he had hairline fractures?

Rach Around said...

I continued playing a gig onstage with a broken leg and only 2 pre-show drinks under my belt. This included moshing, stage dive and jumping around
Body can go into shock
And I've got high pain tolerance
Have fun w reveals : I'm off to the gym (nearly 6 am) xxxxxx

sexy sadie said...

It's inconceivable that the guy didn't at least call a cab. This is fiction.

JSierra said...

Reno that is the best gift I have ever received. ARod will never be the same.

timebob said...

as someone who used to work in insurance investigation you have no idea the lengths people will go to, to sue and/or collect insurance payouts

I once worked with a guy who tore a ligament in his leg while playing softball. He drank like a fish to dull the pain. Went into his oil trucking job and walked behind some barrels and did a prat fall so he could claim disability.

Even if A-Rod is sued the company insurance will cover it he wouldn't be liable personally.

Kathleen said...

Freya, I imagine they were hairline fractures. I've seen athletes complete rigorous games and competitions with broken limbs.

Mary Ann said...

Not a broken leg, but I walked around on a torn Achilles tendon for four days because I thought it was just part of the pain syndrome I normally deal with. My son broke his arm (hairline) skiing and had to drive himself to the hospital. You do what you have to. I suspect this man sustained hairline fractures, not complete breaks.

Low Key said...

@elle: much lawyers. many money. so hurts. wow.

NaughtyNurse said...

Guy sounds like a gold digger.

Aoife said...

What a poor excuse for a human ARod is. UGH.

I broke my right wrist reducing it to a mass of fractures in a motorcycle accident. I had to strap and wrap it with a left hand wrist brace ( nice and backwards) and drive my stick shift through stop and go tunnel traffic to the nearest Doc in a box. You do what you gotta do and truthfully, I didn't know I broke it. I thought I broke a bone in the back of my hand since a goose egg swelled up from my pinky to my pointer finger.
More than likely the guy just wrapped a brace on his legs thinking he strained them using the equipment and went to a doctor when it didn't get better.

Pip Squeak said...

A-Rod is the definition of A-List athlete.

I don't believe this item. I have walked with a broken leg, but it was a very marginal fracture of the shin where it meets the knee. You can't have two broken legs and walk.
