Alex Rodriguez on Ex Cameron Diaz: She"s "One of the Greatest Human Beings I"ve Ever Met"

They have have broken up – but clearly Alex Rodriguez harbors no hard feelings toward Cameron Diaz.

“I don”t like talking about my relationships,” the New York Yankee tells The Insider in a new interview, “but I will tell you about C.D. – she”s probably one of the greatest human beings I”ve ever met, and just an amazing light.”

The two had an on-again, off-again relationship, though a source confirmed to us the two had split for good in September 2011.

At the time, Rodriguez had equally kind words for Diaz, telling us, “I have a lot of love for Cameron. We”ll always be friends.”

And the two have subsequently moved on: Diaz has been linked with Diddy, while Rodriguez has been spotted smooching former wrestling diva Torrie Wilson.

As for people gossiping about his personal life – or his athletic abilities, for that matter – Rodriguez tells The Insider, he”s not fazed.

“Ah, you know, it”s New York,” he says, “people are always going to have an opinion [with] pretty much anything you do, both on and off the field.”
