Does Roberto Alomar Have AIDS?

That's the claim in a recent lawsuit being brought forth by Alomar's former girlfriend, Ilya Dall.

In the $15 million lawsuit, Dall claims that even after he learned he had tested positive for "full-blown AIDS," he insisted on having unprotected sex.

In papers filed in state and federal court, 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," the $15 million negligence suit says.

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," the suit says.


Though he wasn’t officially diagnosed until 2006, Dall, who has tested negative herself, claims that Alomar had long suspected he was infected, and even though they stopped having unprotected sex after he was diagnosed with AIDS, “contends that she has suffered emotional damage and that her children may have been exposed to the virus.”
