Madison LeCroy was accused of dating a married ex-MLB player

The scandal involving Madison LeCroy first started back in January when she was accused of having an affair with a married ex-Major League Baseball Player.

During the reunion episode of her reality show Southern Charm, Madison’s co-star Craig Conover said:

“You were flying around the country sleeping with men, married men! Ex-MLB players. That’s what you were doing during quarantine. You know why Austen was at my house? ‘Cause you weren’t talking to him! You flew to Miami to f*** an ex-MLB player.”

He did not reveal the name of the MLB player, and Madison denied the allegations, even suggesting that they take a lie detector test to prove it.

Madison admitted the MLB player was Alex Rodriguez

Following the reunion episode, people began speculating that the married MLB player who she allegedly had an affair with was JLo’s other half Alex Rodriguez.

So, after rumours swirled online, Madison finally confirmed the speculation.

She told Page Six that her and Alex had “spoken on the phone” but “never met up,” revealing that they had “never been physical … never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”

“He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me,” she continued before saying she’s “talked to him randomly, but not consistent.”
