Alex Rodriguez's camp has said that the former Yankees hitter is exploring legal action after he was photographed sitting on a bath base in his luxurious apartment bathroom.
But legal experts say that A-Rod could have a difficult case in court because of the lenient privacy laws of New York.
Page six reported Thursday that a photo of Rodriguez sitting in the can, shot through the window of her New York City notebook, was making the rounds and that her legal team was trying to get the photographer out.
The Park Avenue office building next door, overlooking the $ 17.5 million A-Rod apartment, includes renown renters such as Harbinger Group, Ortelius Capital Partners and JMP Securities.
It is not clear who took the photo that hit the fans, but a nice tenant told us about A-Rod: "Poor man, that's no way to live in. The sad thing is that, if there are pictures of that, there are probably pictures of other things too, it's pretty fucked up. "
Another added: "For a building with a lot of smart people, it's very silly."
After circulating among the Wall Street types and other powerful players, the image came to Twitter on Thursday night.
But several legal experts told page six that a legal case could surround the bowl, since the photo would not violate New York law.
"According to current jurisprudence, it has no case," said Brad Shear, one of the best sports and privacy lawyers that the Digital Armor Group advises. "Under New York law, it's better to lower the blinds. He's lucky not to stand naked. "
In 2015, a local appellate court ruled that a display of picture art that filtered through the involuntary windows of New Yorkers was not a violation of privacy.
Rodriguez still has to comment on the situation.
But the sources told us on Thursday: "Alex's lawyers are in all of this, they are working hard to find out who is to blame … The photo was taken obviously from the building next door, from an apartment possibly parallel to the apartment. Alex. "
A-Rod shares the apartment with his fiancée Jennifer Lopez, and the couple put the pad on the market earlier this year, reported page six.
