Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez split: Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy ‘signed an NDA’

According to Madison‘s costar Shep Rose, who spoke to UsWeekly on Friday, ‘there was an NDA signed,’ suggesting that some damage control may have been done following the reality star’s interaction with the pro baseball player.

‘I know that there was, like, an NDA signed, which doesn’t seem to mean anything anymore, not worth the price of the paper they’re printed on,’ Rose told the publication, later adding a reference to ‘DMing baseball stars’.

Madison LeCroy’s son and ex-husband

Madison LeCroy’s ex-husband, Josh Hughes, made headlines when she shared a rare photo of him at her salon on Wednesday, January 27.

The Southern Charm star, 30, who shares 8-year-old son Hudson with Hughes, has kept her ex’s identity as private as possible since joining the cast of the Bravo show in season 6 in 2019.

“When your ex-husband still trusts you with their hair,” she wrote alongside a video of Hughes sitting in her styling chair, leading many fans to want to know more about the father of her child.

“I was 20 when I got married. And I had Hudson when we were 22,” the Greenville, South Carolina, native revealed at the time, noting the pair split when Hudson was 3 years old.

Hudson was born in November 2012, which means the former couple called it quits in late 2015 or in early 2016.

“I definitely wanted a son. I feel like I’m a boy mom,” Madison LeCroy said. “I know people say that and they’re like what does that even mean? But could you imagine like me in a miniature version? I mean, that would be like hell on Earth.”

“It’s been hard being a young single mom,” she said. “And there have been times where I didn’t have it together.”

Having their son, however, has outweighed the hard times, according to LeCroy.

“Having Hudson has definitely pushed me to want to be successful,” she said. “I mean I have a kid, so I don’t have a choice to be lazy.
