Alex Rodriguez is texting Kelly Bensimon

Has A-Rod set his sights on former model and “Real Housewife of New York,” Kelly Bensimon following his split from Jennifer Lopez?

We hear the former Yankee slugger, 46, has been texting the 53-year-old reality star-turned-real estate broker asking to hang out.

“They have a cute and flirty text relationship,” says an insider. “Alex has asked her out more than once although she has not gone on a date with him.”

A rep for Bensimon confirmed to Page Six that she and Rodriguez — who is an avid real estate investor — have been in contact.

“They’ve been having a fun text relationship for the last couple of months,” says Bensimon’s rep. “She thinks he is charming and a gentleman.”

Bensimon’s rep added, “They have mutual friends and she has been talking to him about real estate.”

A-Rod’s rep, meanwhile, was much more curt and to the point. “She 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 has sold over a whopping $100 million of real estate this year with Douglas Elliman.

She represents properties in New York City, the Hamptons and South Florida and has also recently expanded into Europe with Knight Frank.

Page Six exclusively reported on A-Rod’s split from Lopez after a two-year engagement last March. They had twice postponed their wedding after rumors bubbled he had been playing the field with “Southern Charm” reality star Madison LeCroy.

“He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me,” LeCroy declared to Page Six, saying they had FaceTimed, but never met in person.

Lopez quickly moved on to a high-profile romance with her former paramour, Ben Affleck. Page Six first spotted them together in April.

Meanwhile, A-Rod’s dating life has been quiet — not for lack of trying, though, it seems.
