“Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy has broken her silence on her alleged relationship with Alex Rodriguez — exclusively telling Page Six that she and the ex-MLB star have never met in person, and only spoken on the phone.
Rumors bubbled among LeCroy’s friends that she’d had “an affair” with the slugger — and they exploded into the public eye after Bravo’s Andy Cohen mentioned during a “Southern Charm” reunion show, “a very famous… ex-MLB player.”
But LeCroy told us on Wednesday that she and A-Rod have “never met up.”
She clarified they’ve “spoken on the phone.” “That’s the truth,” she said, adding they’ve “never been physical… never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”
The Bravo star revealed, “He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me,” and added that she’s “talked to him randomly, but not consistent.” She did not reveal the content of the calls but said it was “innocent.”
LeCroy did not specify when the alleged calls took place. But she said that the rumors took off because, “it was like a game of telephone,” in her social circle, and, “I told the wrong person,” that she’d been in contact with A-Rod.
“All this stuff was a year ago [but] it’s being aired now,” she said, after the allegations came out on the reunion show.
Moderator Cohen said on the show he was trying to get to the bottom of a rumor about LeCroy and a person whose name was bleeped. Cohen then said instead, “I should say, a very famous, married ex-MLB player.”
Rodriguez is not married — but is engaged to pop superstar Jennifer Lopez.
LeCroy told Page Six that the bleeped-out name on the reunion show was indeed A-Rod’s — but added that she, “told them they couldn’t use that.”
“I don’t know what to do,” a distraught-sounding LeCroy told us on Wednesday. “I have tried to be as quiet as possible. I don’t want anything bad for his family, or for mine. We are definitely innocent in this.”
Sources close to A-Rod have said that he and LeCroy had never met.
An insider further told Page Six, “Alex and Jennifer are very happy. They’re together and building a house in Miami Beach.” The source said they’ve been inseparable during the pandemic, and that on Wednesday they were seen driving around Coral Gables, Fla., in a red convertible.
Meantime, LeCroy’s “Southern Charm” co-star Danni Baird alleged on the “Reality Life With Kate Casey” podcast that LeCroy previously admitted connecting with Rodriguez on FaceTime. “Months before [the show’s reunion special], I had heard … [LeCroy] had told me they were FaceTiming or something,” Baird alleged on the podcast. “I never asked more about it, or anything like that. I just didn’t tie in that he was a Major League Baseball player.”
On the reunion special, LeCroy said, without naming A-Rod, that she’d communicated on Instagram with a baseball player who reached out to her, but denied that she “flew to Miami” to hook up with him, as her cast member Craig Conover suggested.
She told Cohen at the time: “He contacted me, and yes, we DMed, but other than that there was nothing … I’ve never seen him [or] touched him,” she told Cohen.
