That is such a heartbreaking thing to hear! It has been more than ten years since former Yankee pitcher David Cone and his longtime partner Taja Abitbol began dating. It appears that the couple has finally called it quits with each other.
It must be noted that Abitbol has been staying in Florida with her son, whose name is Sammy, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, while David lives in New York. There is no doubt in her mind that it has caused their relationship to become “complicated” as a result.
They Were Finding It Increasingly Difficult To Remain Together
Abitbol explained that “We don’t know [what we are]. It’s rough with the travel situation. He’s always on the road. During baseball season, it’s hard for us, and sometimes in the off-season, it’s not hard for us. It’s complicated.”
A source told that in spite of the split, David has financially been highly liberal with her partner Abitbol during their relationship. He had spent a lot on her through the years, buying her homes and helping to support her dealings.
A Hip Replacement Was Being Performed On Cone
According to the representative of Cone’s organization, David had a hip replacement on Monday morning, so he could not respond. It did not seem like Abitbol was with him during the operation.
As she mentioned in an interview with The Post, Abitbol had given the impression that she and David were still together when she referred to them as longtime lovers in the discussion. Aside from that, she also denied that she set fire to appear on “The Real Housewives of New York City” to compete for the show.
As a result of her connection to Cone, Abitbol alleges that her neighbour is litigating her in Manhattan Supreme Court over the blaze. He intentionally targeted her.
“This guy is looking to sue me because David is a New York legend — he doesn’t deserve this, the poor guy,” she said in a statement to The Post.
These two met at Abitbol’s old restaurant Taja, a French-Moroccan place on the Upper East Side that closed in 2007, and they rewired at a holiday party in 2010, where they met again. There has never been a marriage between them.
Who Is David Cone?
It is worth mentioning that David Brian Cone is an American former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher who currently serves as a colour commentator for the New York Yankees on YES Network and WPIX as for ESPN on Sunday Night Baseball.
It was in the third round of the 1981 MLB Draft that the Kansas City Royals selected him. He made his MLB debut in 1986 and continued to play until 2003, pitching for five different teams. A left-handed hitter, Cone threw a right-handed ball and batted left-handed.
With the Toronto Blue Jays in 1992 and the New York Yankees in 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000, he was a member of five championship teams that won World Series championships.
However, the news was not good for their fans, but we hope they have a bright future ahead of them. If you have any views on their split, please let us know in the comments.
