Madonna was reportedly involved with another baseball player before her alleged "affair of the heart" with Alex Rodriguez.
Former slugger Jose Canseco tells Us Weekly magazine that the Material Girl's people approached him in 1991, saying "she was interested in meeting me." Even though Canseco was married at the time, "I'm Cuban and she wanted a Cuban child. She wanted to get married and have a child with me."
The former Oakland A and onetime Yankee also revealed that Madonna "came over and said 'what would you do if I kissed you?' and then sat on my lap and kissed me.
"I then told her I was trying to work things out with my wife. That if I left her I would lose a lot of money and she said, 'I have lots of money. Don't worry about that.'"
The relationship ended when Canseco tried to take a boat to her house, was followed by a helicopter and called to tell her he wouldn't be coming.
Though he admits they "were not intimate," the singer "thought she could persuade me or seduce me over time."
