The world has been shaken by the news of the breakup announced Friday by Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.
The reason for the surprising breakup is said to be the scandal surrounding former MLB player and “Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy.
Earlier this year it was revealed that LeCroy, 30, had a relationship with “a very famous and married former MLB player” and although Rodriguez, 45, was not married, fans assumed that he was the athlete in question after noticing that he liked his Instagram posts.
Although LeCroy previously denied ever meeting Rodriguez, the damage had apparently already been done as a source told Page Six on Friday that the scandal was in fact the reason for ARod and JLo to split.

Here are five things to know about LeCroy.
