The wife of Roberto Alomar says the baseball great had unprotected sex with her despite knowing he’s HIV-positive, the New York Post reported Thursday.

In Florida divorce papers, Maria Del Pilar “Maripily” Rivera Alomar, 33, said he “knew prior to his first sexual contact with [her] that he was HIV-positive,” but lied about to her about it and said STD tests came back negative.

The divorce papers said after Rivera “learned from conclusive proof” that Alomar was HIV-positive, she suffered “extreme emotional distress.” Rivera added that she wouldn’t have married Alomar if she knew he was sick.

She hasn’t tested positive for the virus, but said “uncertainty still exists due to the delay” in its onset.

The 12-time All Star has previously denied having AIDS.

In 2009, his ex-girlfriend Ilya Dall made similar claims. She sued the ex-Met for $15 million, saying he knew he had AIDS but insisted on having unprotected sex.

The case was later settled.

Rivera, who was Alomar’s girlfriend at the time, called Dall’s claim a “vile lie,” reports said.

Alomar retired in 2004 after 16 years in the MLB, winning10 Gold Gloves and two World Series.

A rep for Alomar didn’t return e-mails for comment.
