Wife: Roberto Alomar exposed me to HIV

Oct. 7, 2010 at 9:34 PM

TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Roberto Alomar's wife accuses the former MLB star of having unprotected sex with her even though he is HIV-positive, Florida divorce papers indicate.

Maria Del Pilar Rivera Alomar, 33, says the former all-star second baseman "intentionally, with corrupt intent, concealed from (her) his physical condition" to get her to have unprotected sex with him, the New York Post reported.

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 assured her he had been "tested for sexually transmitted diseases and the tests were negative," the divorce filing states.

Rivera's charges follow claims in a $15 million 2009 lawsuit by former Alomar girlfriend Ilya Dall that Alomar had AIDS, but encouraged her to keep having unprotected sex with him.

Alomar settled the case with her in May.

Rivera states Alomar assured her before their 2009 marriage "he had been tested for sexually transmitted diseases and the tests were negative."

After the wedding she "learned from conclusive proof" he had the human immunodeficiency virus that causes AIDS, the court papers state.

Alomar's lawyers had no immediate comment, the Post said.
