LeCroy admitted to engaging in FaceTime conversations with A-Rod but said she was only an "acquaintance" of the baseball player. She also denied sleeping with J.Lo's fiancé, despite her Bravo co-star claiming that wasn't true.

And just this past weekend, Jennifer was spotted without her $1.8 million engagement ring, which Alex gave her in the Bahamas in March 2019.
