A year after a woman filed (and settled) a $15-million lawsuit against former baseball player Roberto Alomar for exposing her to HIV/AIDS, a second woman has filed suit -- his wife.
In papers filed in a Florida divorce court, Maria Del Pilar "Maripily" Rivera Alomar, 33, says the former Orioles great and Mets goat "intentionally, with corrupt intent, concealed from [her] his physical condition" in order to get her to have unprotected sex with him. Alomar, 42, "knew prior to his first sexual contact with [her] that he was HIV-positive," but not only did he not tell Rivera about his condition, he outright lied to her, assuring her "he had been tested for sexually transmitted diseases and the tests were negative," the explosive filing says...."Prior to the marriage" in 2009, the suit says, Alomar assured the chesty chica "he had been tested for sexually transmitted diseases and the tests were negative." At some point after their wedding, she discovered that wasn't true, the filing says. She "learned from conclusive proof" that he was HIV-positive, the court papers say. The discovery caused her to "suffer extreme emotional distress, fear and mental anguish," the filing says. She has "not contracted the virus to date but uncertainty still exists due to the delay in the onset of the virus."Coincidenattaly, when the other woman filed her lawsuit against Roberto last Feburary, Maria stood by her husband and said the allegations were "a vile lie" and "not true." Last August, Roberto was served a temporary domestic violence injunction for threatening his wife with a knife. On August 12 he filed for divorce and last month both parties agreed on a hearing to handle the case through private mediation. So, the timing of this bombshell -- which may be true -- is no coincidence. By the way, Roberto continues to maintain that he's not HIV-positive.
