Alex Rodriguez puts differences aside as he joins with ex-wife for daughter's graduation

Good on you!

Alex Rodriguez and his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis joined together on May 30 to celebrate their daughter's middle school graduation.

The former couple has been going back-and-forth in court over its financial arrangements for daughters Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11, in recent months, but Alex and Cynthia managed to put on a united front this week for their eldest child's special occasion.

They were joined by Ella, as well as the retired baseball star's fiancee Jennifer Lopez and her twins, Max and Emme, who are also 11. Alex posted a picture of them all together on his Instagram page, and captioned it: "How is my beautiful angel going to be a freshman in High School?! Congrats Tashi, we love you!"

Last year (18), it was reported that the former Yankees player had requested to reduce his child support payments to Cynthia, who was receiving about $115,000 (£91,000) per month, because he was no longer earning the $30 million (£23.7 million) a year he had been when they finalised their divorce in 2008 after six years of marriage.

Alex is believed to have offered to pay $20,000 (£15,840) a month for his two daughters, including their school tuition, but Cynthia is alleged to have wanted closer to $50,000 (£39,600) a month.
