They have have broken up – but clearly Alex Rodriguez harbors no hard feelings toward Cameron Diaz.

"I don't like talking about my relationships," the New York Yankee tells The Insider in a new interview, "but I will tell you about C.D. – she's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light."

The two had an on-again, off-again relationship, though a source confirmed to PEOPLE the two had split for good in September 2011.

At the time, Rodriguez had equally kind words for Diaz, telling PEOPLE, "I have a lot of love for Cameron. We'll always be friends."

And the two have subsequently moved on: Diaz has been linked with Diddy, while Rodriguez has been spotted smooching former wrestling diva Torrie Wilson.

As for people gossiping about his personal life – or his athletic abilities, for that matter – Rodriguez tells The Insider, he's not fazed.

"Ah, you know, it's New York," he says, "people are always going to have an opinion [with] pretty much anything you do, both on and off the field."
