SOUTHERN Charm’s Madison LeCroy “had plans” to meet with Alex Rodriguez during their “flirty fling,” a source exclusively told The Sun.
Despite his engagement to Jennifer Lopez, the MLB champion sparked rumors of a romance with the Bravo star this week – though the duo insist they are just friends.
However, an insider close to Madison, 31, claimed their relationship was NOT “strictly platonic.”
The source even alleged the reality personality was “smitten” with the former Yankee.
"Madison hasn't exactly kept the ARod thing a secret. It's been buzzing around town for awhile and it really is such a small town here, things spread so fast,” the Charleston insider told The Sun.
The informant continued: “She's been talking about it for months. And when she does, has the biggest smile on her face. She seemed smitten with him.
"They flirted a lot when they talked and texted and FaceTimed. It definitely wasn't strictly platonic.”
However, it was unclear if the pair “ever actually ended up meeting in person.”
“I know they talked about hanging out in person but it never worked out. She kept blaming them not meeting up on the pandemic.
“But also, you know he's got the whole JLo thing going on,” the source added.
The rumor that Madison was connected to Alex, 45, comes after Southern Charm’s Craig Conover accused his co-star of traveling to Miami "to sleep with married men – ex MLB players" during Thursday's reunion.
Madison quickly slammed Craig's accusations and said: "Put me on a lie detector test, I never flew to Miami. Tell me, when did I fly to Miami? No, because that's fake.”
Craig – who called her a homewrecker during the reunion – continued: "She has been bragging to all the blogs that she f**ked …"
When host Andy Cohen asked if she had DMed Alex, she said: "He contacted me and yes, we DMed but other than that, I've never physically seen him.”
ARod has been dating JLo, 51, since 2017 and the couple announced their engagement after a family vacation to the Bahamas in 2019.
Following fan speculation the athlete and Shark Tank star had an affair, Madison spoke to Page Six, adamant that they “never met up” and “only spoke on the phone.”
She claimed that they've "never been physical… never had any kind of anything. Just an acquaintance.”
The Southern Charm star said: "He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me.”
Madison added that she “talked to him randomly, but not consistent.”
In addition to rumors she got between the marriage of ARod and JLo, Madison has also recently shut down speculation she had a tryst with Jessie James Decker’s husband, Eric Decker.
On an Instagram comment, she wrote of the couple: “It’s not true…I love them. I would never.”
During the explosive Bravo reunion this week, the blonde bombshell also recently revealed she had a fling with Kristin Cavallari’s ex Jay Cutler.
There were also rumors last year that Madison was dating former baseball star Andruw Jones.
Though the pair never confirmed the romance, a source exclusively told The Sun that the pair were seen together on a date in September 2020.
According to the onlooker, Madison and Andruw were “looking cozy” as they had an intimate dinner at Vintage Lounge and Wine Bar in Charleston.
Reps for Madison and Alex did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
