In a distinct departure from his usual type, Alex — who in the past has been linked to the likes of Madonna, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson — has been seeing wealthy and wildly smart Wojcicki for over a month, we’re told.
The couple was at Graydon Carter’s power player-packed pre-Super Bowl gathering in San Francisco, where they were pictured together.
Rodriguez and Wojcicki were also last week spotted dining with friends at Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Fla., where he was in town for spring training.
A-Rod was also in the audience when Wojcicki, CEO and co-founder of genetic research firm 23andMe, spoke at a satellite event for the Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Tampa.
A source told us of their new relationship, “Alex and Anne are spending time together and have been on a few dates. It is very new. He finds her interesting, inspirational and very smart.”
Rodriguez has found one of the few single women actually richer than himself — Wojcicki is said to be worth billions after her divorce from Brin was finalized last year. Brin famously had a relationship with Google employee Amanda Rosenberg in early 2013, after he and Wojcicki had separated.
Yale-graduate Wojcicki co-founded 23andMe in 2006 after a decade in health care investing to give consumers personalized genetic information about their health and ancestry. The company also participates in genetic research into diseases including Parkinson’s and asthma.
Wojcicki spoke at the Professional BusinessWomen of California conference on Tuesday and said of gender bias in the workplace, “There are men, women and a - - holes. You just have to avoid the a - - holes.” And, “I had a fairly public divorce, and the family therapist said the way you handle this will impact your grandchildren . . . How you live your life will impact generations to come.”
Reps for Rodriguez, Wojcicki and 23andMe didn’t comment.
