arodThe mother of Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki says her daughter’s ex Alex Rodriguez “wasn’t intelligent enough to carry a conversation”.

Esther Wojcicki has revealed she had known early on the relationship between her daughter and the athlete was doomed to fail.

“I liked A-Rod, he was a very nice man,” she told the New York Times. “He seemed to be genuinely in love with Anne. But I right away figured out this was a mismatch. He had no academic background. We couldn’t have an intellectual conversation about anything.”

Esther said that A-Rod’s ‘main interest in life’ appeared to be watching sports and could happily watch baseball on TV for ten hours a day.

She said on one occasion, he considered turning down a trip on their yacht because he feared the TV might not be working.

‘I wish J-Lo all the luck in the world,’ she said of A-Rod’s new girlfriend, adding that the pair seemed to be a better match and didn’t mind getting mobbed by fans for pictures.
