Madison LeCroy Releases Alleged Jay Cutler Texts, Claims He ‘Pursued’ Her
An interesting turn of events. Madison LeCroy shared screenshots of her alleged texts with Jay Cutler, shedding light on their relationship and her drama with Kristin Cavallari. The Southern Charm star, 30, revealed in a Sunday, January 24, Instagram Story video that she intended to post evidence of her back and forth with the former NFL star, 37. “It looks to me like I’m gonna have to drop some receipts. Hate to do that, but …” she said. LeCroy proceeded to divulge her private conversations with Cutler. In the first screenshot, she implored him to “ask” her before booking a flight to come visit her. He noted that he wanted to “hang out” with her and eventually did request to spend time together. The retired football player later accused the reality star of bringing up his name out of turn, which he “didn’t appreciate.” She replied that she had “done nothing but respect you and your privacy.” “Didn’t seem like that was the case,” he responded. “Maybe it was accidental. I don’t know. No one wants this mess. I appreciate you saying that. I think we can all respect each other moving forward. At the very least.” LeCroy retorted that she was “disgusted” by the situation. “You reached out to me… Your intentions may have not been pure but that might be you projecting. I’ve never said anything about Kristin nor would I,” she wrote. “I came into this honestly with good intentions. I want no part of being involved in a payback or drama. But you initiated and pursued. If you weren’t interested in something real you shouldn’t have [redacted] with me.” The Bravo star alleged that she “kept my mouth shut until I get called a liar…” In a separate Instagram Story post, she shared a selfie of her and Cutler, adding, “Too bad it didn’t work out.” LeCroy was linked to Cutler earlier this month. She addressed the romance rumors during a January 7 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, saying that she was “not kissing and telling.” A source revealed exclusively to Us Weekly earlier this month that the twosome had a “new, flirty thing,” noting: “It’s nothing serious at this point. But they’re having fun getting to know each other.” LeCroy hinted at her plans to speak out about Cutler after he posed for a friendly photo with Cavallari, 34, on Friday, January 22. “Can’t wait to clear this up,” she wrote via Instagram. She also captioned a Saturday, January 23, photo of herself, “Unbothered.” The Uncommon James founder and the athlete announced their split in April 2020. They are parents of sons Camden, 8, and Jaxon, 6, and daughter Saylor, 5. Cavallari sparked dating rumors with LeCroy’s ex Austen Kroll in December 2020. However, the Hills alum claimed at the time that they were just friends. Scroll down to see LeCroy’s “receipts” from her time with Cutler.
Who Is Michelle Young? Meet Matt James’ New 'Bachelor' Contestant
Sporty spice alert! Former college basketball player Michelle Young joins the competition for Matt James’ heart during the Monday, January 25, episode of the ABC series. The 29-year-old former football player kicked off his journey with more than 30 women during the January 4 premiere. After a handful of rose ceremonies — and one self-elimination — Matt meets five additional contestants: Michelle, Brittany Galvin, Catalina Morales, Kim Li and Ryan Claytor. “It’s just such a great group of women, like, women that you would never think would be single,” Matt gushed exclusively to Us Weekly about his cast ahead of the premiere. “That’s why I was so skeptical coming in, because it’s, like, you don’t think the type of women exists that I was interacting with and that were part of this experience. So it made my life and decision-making that much more difficult because you’re having to send home an incredible amount at times because there’s so many of them.” More recently, Matt gave Bachelorette alums Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo more insight into his dating history. “People for some reason think I don’t like Black women. The last women I’ve dated have all been Black women. I don’t understand why that’s so hard for people to understand. People should want you to be happy, regardless of if they’re white, they’re Black, they’re Asian, whatever,” Matt, who is biracial, explained on the “Talking It Out with Mike & Bryan” podcast on January 18. “I’ve dated all across the board. Spanish women, white women, Asian women, Black women. Everything that I’ve ever dated and what I’m into isn’t race-specific, and when you’re looking for things that aren’t race-specific, you have to have a broad cast of characters to fill all those things, and thank goodness they had it, because it allowed me to enjoy the process the way that I did.” Michelle, meanwhile, is hoping to be The One for Matt. “Admittedly, she is an overworker and says she is here because she is ready to find love and a man with whom to start a family,” her bio reads. “As a partner, she describes herself as loyal, compassionate and supportive, and shows love through acts of service.” In addition to the five newbies, Bachelor season 23 contestant Heather Martin is going to shoot her shot with Matt. “She felt for sure this was her husband and basically did anything she could to get there and track him down,” ABC executive Robert Mills dished on “The Bachelor Recap” podcast on January 5. The Bachelor airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET. Scroll through for five things to know about Michelle:
