The mum of Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki says Alex Rodriguez wasn’t smart enough for her daughter.

The 23andMe co-founder, 44, dated the former baseball star, 42, for around a year and a half before they split last year, and Anne’s mum Esther Wojcicki knew their relationship was never going to last.

In an interview with the New York Times , Esther revealed she really liked the sportsman, but said he lacked intelligence.

“I liked A-Rod, he was a very nice man,” she shared. “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 added that outside of baseball, A-Rod – who has since moved on with Jennifer Lopez – didn’t have much else to talk about.

She continued: “His main interest in life was something that none of us had ever focused on, which was baseball. He could park himself in front of a TV and watch baseball for 10 hours a day. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to go on the yacht with Anne because the TV might not be working.”

Anne’s mum also explained it was difficult to go out in public because of how famous he was.

“We couldn’t go anywhere with [Alex]. If we went to Target to look for clothes for the kids, all of a sudden we’d be looking around, and people would be saying, ‘We just want a selfie with A-Rod.’ He can’t walk across Central Park. He has to take a cab. That will work better with J-Lo because she’s like, ‘Take a picture of me anytime.'”
