Why are there rumours that Alex Rodriguez cheated on Jennifer Lopez? Let me explain

Allow me to start by clarifying, who is who and what is going on.

Alex Rodriguez is a famous former Major League Baseball player. He’s been married once to a woman with whom he shares two children. His ex-wife Cynthia filed for divorce in 2008 citing “emotional abandonment” of her and their kids, as well as “extra martial affairs and other marital misconduct” by her husband. Rodriguez responded in court documents that the marriage was “irretrievably broken” but requested that allegations of his “extramarital affairs” be stricken from court record. Now fast forward 12 years and he is now engaged to megastar Jennifer Lopez.

Madison LeCroy is a reality star best known for appearing on Bravo’s Southern Charm. Southern Charm is a reality TV show follows the lives of seven socialites who live in South Carolina. The show has currently had seven seasons, and Madison has appeared in every one of them. Madison is a hair and makeup artist. She is also a mother to her eight-year-old son Hudson.

Ok, now what’s going on?

On January 28, the first part of the Southern Charm reunion aired, in which Maddison was accused of cheating on her then-boyfriend with a “Miami-based ex Major League Baseball player”. The reunion’s host Andy Cohen added that the man was “married” and “very famous” (let’s bear in mind JLo and A-Rod are not married yet).

On the reunion special, Maddison 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.

On February 2, Maddison’s costar was a guest on a podcast and she said “that it was possibly Alex Rodriguez,” and the reality star said that Maddison had told her that “they were Facetiming or something” but hadn’t given further details. 

Although fan speculation has suggested that JLo’s beau is indeed the retired baseball player in question, a source close to him said that, “Alex doesn’t know her and has never met her.” 

On Thursday February 4, Madison LeCroy exclusively told Page Six that she and the ex-MLB star have never met in person, and only spoken on the phone.,adding they’ve “never been physical … never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”

She 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 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. “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.”

For the moment, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez haven’t set a wedding date yet, but seem very happy together. They have been inseparable throughout the pandemic and were spotted on Wednesday out to lunch at the exclusive Bellini restaurant in the Coconut Grove area of South Florida.
