London, Nov 11 : Madonna has fuelled reports that that she and Alex Rodriguez are an item - by introducing him to her close pals.
The 50-year-old singer kept an intimate dinner party in her apartment for the Yankees slugger and also invited some of her non-Kaballah chums.
However, the move has left her estranged husband Guy Ritchie livid because it featured a number of their mutual friends.
The 40-year-old is angry that Madonna is showing off A-Rod, immediately after he and his wife announced their split.
"It is a massive slap in the face for Guy and he really finds the whole thing quite embarrassing," the Mirror quoted a source, as saying.
"As you can imagine, both he and Madonna share a lot of mutual friends who they still keep in touch with.
"Guy found out through one of them about this party and was pretty p*****-off about the whole thing.
"He thought it showed a great deal of disrespect to him so soon after the announcement of their break up," the source added.
