NEW YORK -- Roberto Alomar's wife has accused the former baseball star in divorce papers of having unprotected sex with her despite knowing that he is HIV-positive.

The New York Post reported Thursday that Maria Del Pilar Rivera Alomar filed paperwork in Florida alleging Alomar "knew prior to his first sexual contact with [her] that he was HIV-positive."

The lawsuit is the second in two years to accuse Alomar of having unprotected sex while knowingly carrying the virus. A former girlfriend, Ilya Dall, filed a lawsuit in February 2009 accusing him of having unprotected sex with her during the course of four years.

Dall, who alleged Alomar had AIDS, sought $15 million from him. The case eventually was settled last May.

Alomar's then-girlfriend Rivera defended him at the time, calling Dall's lawsuit "a vile lie."

Alomar has denied having AIDS. He told the New York Post last year: "I don't talk about my personal life, but I don't have that disease." He added that he would not have gotten married if he had the disease.

Information from The Associated Press is included in this report.
