Madonna's Marriage 'Not on the Rocks'

Message to all wannabe Mr. Madonnas: She's not up for grabs.

The pop star's publicist denied a recent rash of rumors that Madonna's 8-year marriage to director Guy Richie is falling apart.

"Their marriage is not on the rocks, and there are no plans for getting divorced," Liz Rosenberg told ABCNEWS.com.

In a statement to People magazine, Rosenberg also denied reports of late-night trysts between Madonna and New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez at her New York City apartment.

"Madonna and Alex have the same manager, Guy Oseary," she said. "They have met. They know each other and Madonna took her kids to a Yankees game last week. There's really not anything to comment on beyond that."

Rosenberg added: "It's nothing new that people are airing tons of dirty laundry Madonna's way lately -- much of it untrue." She joked: "By the way, rumors of Madonna and Lil Wayne are quite exaggerated as well."

The rumors aren't the only thing keeping Madonna's name in the news. Her childhood home in Rochester Hills, Mich., burned down over the weekend, and arson investigators are calling the circumstances of the fire suspicious.
