Pete Rose’s second wife, Carol Rose, has come forward with new allegations against the banned baseball star.
She accused Rose of making more than $1 million per year from autograph signings and using that money for “high-stakes gambling,” according to TMZ. Because of that gambling, Rose has “significant debts” with casinos and the IRS, TMZ reported.
Despite filing for divorce in 2011, Rose technically is still married to his second wife, whom he married in 1984. At the time, Pete Rose cited “irreconcilable differences” for the split.
Since then, Rose, 77, has reportedly been datingKiana Kim, 38.
Carol Rose, who asked the judge to order Rose to be transparent with his financial situation so the two can settle, claimed he earns at least $100,000 per month mainly from signing appearances, according to the report.
Rose has a history of gambling. In 1989, he agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball after an investigation into his gambling. Despite being the baseball’s all-time hits leader, Rose will never be on the Hall of Fame ballot because of the ban. In 2004, Rose admitted he bet on the Reds while he was their manager.
