Baseball star Alex Rodriguez has confirmed his split from Cameron Diaz, insisting the former lovers will "always be friends".
The Charlie's Angels actress began dating New York Yankees player Rodriguez last year (10), although she only admitted they were a couple in May (11).
Reports suggesting the fiercely-private pair had parted ways surfaced last week (begs12Sep11) - and now the sportsman has revealed the rumours are true.
He tells People.com, "I have a lot of love for Cameron. We'll always be friends."
Diaz has previously romanced Justin Timberlake, while Rodriguez was linked to Madonna and went on to date actress Kate Hudson.
