An amended complaint added to a lawsuit filed against Alex Rodríguez by his former brother-in-law accuses the former Yankee of “organized crime and embezzlement” in connection with a real estate deal.
Constantine Scurtis, whose sister, Cynthia Scurtis, was married to A-Rod from 2002 to 2008, has claimed the former slugger kicked him out of a for-profit business, according to court documents filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
The new documents, filed Monday, add the new serious allegations, citing text messages and letters, according to attorneys for Constantine Scurtis.
“Sir. Rodriguez will face a jury on August 2, 2021 to respond to claims that he and his co-conspirators participated in a pattern of organized crime and embezzlement, ”said Scurtis attorney Katherine Eskovitz.
The new filing alleges that A-Rod “first cheated on his wife and then cheated on Mr. Scurtis with the profits of his wildly profitable real estate company,” according to another member of Scurtis’ legal team, Nate Holcomb.
Scurtis originally filed a $ 50 million lawsuit against Rodriguez last July. A-Rod filed a counterclaim denying Scurtis’ allegations.
