Meanwhile, Bensimon and the three-time baseball MVP, 46, have ‘been having a fun text relationship for the last couple of months,’ her rep told Page Six earlier this week.

The rep added, ‘She thinks he is charming and a gentleman,’ and that ‘they have mutual friends and she has been talking to him about real estate,’ as Rodriguez has been investing in properties while Bensimon is working as an agent for Douglas Elliman real estate specializing in high-end properties in New York and Florida.

A source told the outlet that Bensimon and Rodriguez ‘have a cute and flirty text relationship,’ and that Rodriguez ‘has asked her out more than once although she has not gone on a date with him.’

However, a rep for Rodriguez, an alum of the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners, shut down the romantic nature of their exchange. 

The rep told the outlet that Bensimon ‘reached out on a real estate opportunity and that is it.

‘There are no flirty texts, there is nothing there. A lot of people reach out to him for business purposes.’

Bensimon last month told the outlet that she was looking for a partner who’s ‘fun’ and ‘athletic,’ as well as ‘hardworking, really good family values, educated, mindful [and] kind to others.’

She added: ‘My father always told me, “You have to find someone who’s like you.”‘

Rodriguez was most recently in a romance with Jennifer Lopez, 52, but they broke off their engagement this past April. He is father to daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 14, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.

Bensimon is mother to two daughters with her ex-husband Gilles Bensimon, Sea Louise, 23, and Teddy, 21. Her most recent romance was with businessman Nick Stefanov, 42.
