Madison LeCroy, a star from the TV series “Southern Charm” has accused Alex Rodriguez, a former MLB player, of seeking a “side chick” while he was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. LeCroy made the allegations on a recent episode of Austen Kroll’s podcast, “Pillows and Beer”.
During the podcast, LeCroy expressed her disbelief when she received an Instagram message from Rodriguez back in 2020. She said, “I’m being f–king catfished. The dude who’s dating [Jennifer Lopez] is not in my DMs right now,”. LeCroy went on to say that Rodriguez was looking for a “side chick” and that it wasn’t going to be her because she is “wifey material”.
LeCroy also revealed that Rodriguez had struck up a conversation with her by asking what gyms in her neighborhood were open amid the COVID-19 lockdown. Kroll then interjected that Rodriguez had been FaceTiming LeCroy numerous times a day and became angry when she didn’t answer. Furthermore, LeCroy alleged that Rodriguez had offered to fly her to Miami on multiple occasions, but she refused.
Response from Rodriguez
A representative for Rodriguez did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Page Six. However, sources close to Rodriguez told The Post that he had never met LeCroy.
Rumors about LeCroy and Rodriguez’s alleged relationship began to swirl among the “Southern Charm” cast in 2021, and these claims were brought up on the show’s Season 7 reunion. However, LeCroy denied the claims, stating that although she had spoken to Rodriguez on the phone, the two had never been physical. Rodriguez and Lopez called off their engagement a month after news of the scandal broke, and Lopez ended up getting married to Ben Affleck in July 2022, while Rodriguez was romantically linked to fitness instructor Jaclyn Cordeiro in October 2022. LeCroy married Brett Randle in November 2022.
