Alex Rodriguez has his priorities — and they are not his children.

The Yankee slugger, who ditched his wife of six years, Cynthia, after becoming besotted with Madonna, is a "soul-less" man who is "abandoning" his kids on Thanksgiving for his lover, according to what Cynthia is telling friends.

"Access Hollywood" reports that Cynthia, who's in the final stages of her divorce from A-Rod, wrote an e-mail to a confidant noting: "My 6-foot-3, 220-pound soul-less, soon-to-be ex-husband is abandoning his kids on Thanksgiving to be with Madonna ... She called and he ran on her command back to New York City ... Gross!"

Instead of ushering in the holidays in Miami with his children, Natasha, 4, and Ella, 1 - A-Rod, 33, is hosting a dinner at his Manhattan apartment for Madonna, 50, and her kids, Lourdes, Rocco and David, and manager Guy Oseary.

The friend of Cynthia said A-Rod's furious ex described Madonna in "not so nice terms" in the e-mail.

To add insult to injury, after Rodriguez left Miami at Madonna's beck and call, his lawyer called Cynthia and wanted her to sign the couple's divorce settlement.
