Skurtis says he wants millions of dollars from Rodriguez, who ranks fourth in baseball history. 696, but was also suspended twice under a drug policy that boosted the league’s performance. He retired in 2016. He is currently engaged to mega star Jennifer Lopez.
This is not the first time Scottis has brought Rodriguez to court. He has filed several unsuccessful lawsuits against Rodriguez, almost a decade ago.
Rodriguez’s representative declined to comment. Attorney John C., representing A-Road. Lucas did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Skurtis said he asked his sister to reach Rodriguez in 2014, but “the response to Scottis was that Rodriguez would never pay him another dollar again.”
In 2007, Rodriguez allegedly looked him in the eye and vowed that he would never betray his sister. A recent New York Post report said Rodriguez was caught entering a hotel room with a stripper.
In addition, Scottis says one of Rodriguez’s businesses “planned to profit from the devastation caused by Hurricane IK, which was blamed for at least 195 deaths and billions of dollars in damage.” In the alleged scheme, Rodriguez’s company, Newport Property Ventures, created an accounting record that “reflects significant inflated losses” on the properties it owns. Skurtis claims that Rodriguez paid the whistle blower to remain silent after he raised his voice.

Skartis said Rodriguez formed a new company without him and sold his assets to him after he stopped receiving his stake, effectively cutting it to good.
“Through their fraud, Rodriguez and his co-conspirators have caused Skurtis millions of dollars in damages,” the lawsuit said.
