The “Southern Charm” star told Page Six on Thursday when we reached out about A-Rod and J.Lo announcing their split: “I wish them the best.”
It was perhaps the perfect send-off to the celebrity exes from LeCroy, after she’d been entangled in rumors that she had a relationship with Rodriguez.
LeCroy had previously remained mum when we reported last month that Rodriguez and Lopez were splitting. “You kind of caught me off guard,” the 30-year-old reality star said when we told her that A-Rod and J.Lo were breaking up. But now that their parting is official, she sent her best wishes.
LeCroy was caught up in a recent scandal when rumors came out on her Bravo series’ reunion episode that she had been FaceTiming with an unnamed famous baseball player — who turned out to be A-Rod.
LeCroy told Andy Cohen on the show of the then-mystery man: “He contacted me, and yes, we DM’ed, but other than that there was nothing … I’ve never seen him [or] touched him.”
She subsequently told Page Six of the alleged relationship, “He’s never physically cheated on his fiancee with me.” She told us that she and A-Rod, 45, had only “spoken on the phone,” but had “never been physical … never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”
Meantime, sources close to the former slugger shot down the rumors, telling the Post, “He doesn’t know this woman.”
A month after Page Six reported that Lopez, 51, and Rodriguez’s star-studded relationship was on the rocks, they told “Today” in a statement on Thursday: “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so… We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and each other’s children.”
Lopez, per TMZ, has not yet returned her $1.8 million engagement ring from Rodriguez; the outlet says the couple hasn’t discussed it. But their source adds that the pair exchanged “massive amounts of jewelry,” while together, so it’s presumably not something A-Rod is prepared to go to war for.
A source told Page Six in March, “The Madison LeCroy scandal was the reason they finally broke up. There were already problems, but Jennifer was really embarrassed by it.”
However, J-Rod — as they were once known — denied that they’d split up, and said they were working things out, before finally confirming the breakup on “Today.”
LeCroy had moved on last month by hitting the Bahamas and frolicking in the surf in a bikini with pals.
Meantime, LeCroy told us of recent rumors that she was spotted looking cozy with “Southern Charm” co-star Whitney Sudler-Smith: “I don’t know why this is even a story, but Whitney and I are old friends.”
