UPDATE: This story would contradict the allegations
Talk about a serious shocker, it was really hard to digest this story when I first came across it. Nobody’s really heard anything about Roberto Alomar for a handful of years since he stopped playing. The Hall of Fame candidate seemingly dropped off the face of the planet. Maybe it’s because of all the serious health issues through which he was going. In fact, his ex-girlfriend Ilya Dall is suing him for $15 million saying Alomar talked her into having unprotected sex while being infected with AIDS. The whole story is quite a mess. The lawsuit also alleges that Alomar disclosed to her that he was raped when he was 17. I’m not sure if that has to do with the AIDS or not but it seems entirely possible. Now the allegations about his deteriorating health condition, yikes!
Dall said Alomar finally got tested in January 2006 while suffering from a cough, fatigue and shingles. “The test results of him being HIV-positive was given to him and the plaintiff on or about Feb.6, 2006.”
Nine days later, the couple went to see a disease specialist who discovered a mass in the retired second baseman’s chest, the court papers say.
Alomar’s skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap “showed he had full-blown AIDS
As opposed to full-blown AIDS’ cousins, commonly known as half-blown AIDS, or an eighth-blown AIDS, apparently. Now here’s what I’m wondering: if this chick Dall had seen his deteriorating health, why the eff would she have unprotected sex with him, period, let alone sex to begin with? Wasn’t she just asking for trouble at that point? How did it take a positive test for her to finally stop the sex? Or was that part of the plan to cash in? I am really blown away by this story and am having a hard time digesting it all. I never liked Alomar at any point in his career but it would be terribly sad if he really did have AIDS and was in denial about it the whole time, not to mention having sex with someone else unprotected.Google+
