After denying rumors they were splitting last month, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have now officially broken ties with each other and called off their relationship and engagement, preferring to remain as friends instead.
And believe it or not, Madison LeCroy, the woman, who might have played a part in the breakup, was one of the first people to comment on the end of the high-profile romance and posted a few photos where she seems to be teasing the retired athlete.
The former power couple had been together since 2017 and planned to get married last year before the coronavirus pandemic disrupted their plans for a destination wedding.
However, in recent months, their relationship was rocked by rumors of infidelity on the part of Alex Rodriguez, 45, who was reported to be in touch with 30-year-old Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy.
The news was revealed on a reunion show of Bravo, where A-Rod’s name was not disclosed, but the man in question was described as a “famous baseball player.”
The unnamed man was later identified as Alex Rodriguez, former MLB star and the then-fiancé of pop star and actress Jennifer Lopez, 51.
Last month it was reported that they had split amid the Madison LeCroy rumors, with a source saying that there were already problems in their relationship. Still, Jennifer Lopez was “really embarrassed” by the latest rumors.
Madison LeCroy has always denied that she met Alex Rodriguez in person, saying that they had spoken on the phone and through private messages on social media but that she had never met him or touched him.
However, despite denying the reports of their split in March, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez issued a statement on Thursday this week saying that they are better as friends and “look forward to remaining so.”
The statement also noted that A-Rod and J-Lo would continue working together and supporting each other with the businesses and projects that they share.
The exes said in a statement: “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 one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
Responding to the news, which has devastated fans of the couple worldwide, Madison LeCroy said she wished them “all the best.”
LeCroy also took to Instagram, and she posted a few alluring pictures where she is having the time of her life while sipping on fancy drinks.
The stunning reality TV star gave a mischievous look to the camera and penned this interesting caption:
“Let’s root for each other and watch each other grow.🌻”
Fans happily rushed into the comment section and told her it is time to go get Alex Rodriguez because he is single.
A supporter claimed: “I guess you and Alex could be together now.”
Another follower chimed in: “Arod is single now😂 go get him, girl.” A third comment read: “Arod, she’s ready.”
Observers say that LeCroy’s profile has benefited from the juicy scandal.
