“Southern Charm” star Leva Bonaparte is sharing her thoughts on the rumors that Alex Rodriguez had an affair with Madison LeCroy while he was still with now-ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez.
During a new interview with S’More Date, the Bravo star was asked if she believes LeCroy, 31, and Rodriguez, 46, had a fling.
Bonaparte candidly replied, “Yeah.”
LeCroy allegedly responded to the clip, “Stuck in 2019 & still doesn’t know the facts [laughing emoji],” according to a direct message seen by Page Six.
LeCroy and Rodriguez made headlines last year after the “Southern Charm” Season 7 reunion special touched on allegations of infidelity involving an “ex-MLB star” and the reality star. She was accused of hooking up with the unidentified former baseball pro while she was in a relationship with fellow cast member Austen Kroll.
At the time, LeCroy did not name any names but admitted that she communicated on Instagram with a married baseball player who reached out to her. However, she insisted that she never “flew to Miami” to hook up with him.
“He contacted me, and yes, we DMed, but other than that there was nothing … I’ve never seen him [or] touched him,” LeCroy told host Andy Cohen.
Her co-star Danni Baird later claimed on the “Reality Life With Kate Casey” podcast that LeCroy told her she was FaceTiming with Rodriguez.
A source close to the former Yankees star then denied the rumors, telling the New York Post that Rodriguez “doesn’t know this woman.”
“Look, does this mean he didn’t DM her and liked a photo or two? I guess not, but he doesn’t know her — and he definitely didn’t hook up with her,” the unnamed source said.
The same day, LeCroy told Page Six that she had never been physical with Rodriguez and had “never met up” with him, though 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. He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me.”
A month later, however, Rodriguez and Lopez announced that they were parting ways after two years of being engaged.
In May 2021, a rep for Rodriguez, Ron Berkowitz, addressed the reports that the retired MLB player contacted LeCroy since he and the pop diva announced their split a month prior.
“I’m not sure who’s looking to benefit from these types of rumors and false stories. They are factually incorrect,” his rep told multiple outlets, including Us Weekly and E! News. “Alex is busy concentrating on his businesses and his family.”
Following their breakup, Lopez reignited her romance with another ex, Ben Affleck.
When LeCroy was asked about the Bennifer reconciliation, she joked that she contributed to it, saying, “You’re welcome.”
Just like Lopez, the Bravo reality star and the former Yankees star have also moved on. LeCroy is engaged to fiancé Brett, while Rodriguez has been spotted out and about with fitness competitor Kathryne “Kat” Padgett.
