‘Southern Charm’: The Real Reason Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy Split Up

The latest season of Southern Charm has barely begun, and already we’re seeing a breakup couched in accusations of infidelity. Now that Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy are split up, all sorts of allegations about the pair’s infidelity are flying. It’s a murky situation, but it looks like there could have been potential wrongdoing on both sides.

Caught red-handed by Madison LeCroy

In an incredibly compromising video taken last year by a woman on the scene, Southern Charm star Austen Kroll was seemingly caught red-handed by Madison LeCroy after what would appear to be a wild night. The video shows what appears to be an empty wine bottle on the table as Kroll opens his bedroom door in his boxer briefs.

For the next minute and forty seconds, we’re treated to Kroll explaining to LeCroy how crazy she’s acting after finding him with two women in his room and a pair of underwear on the floor. Sounds like classic gaslighting.

During the video, LeCroy asks one of the women if they slept with Kroll. She denies it, and LeCroy shoots back, “So then why are your panties lying by the bed?!”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kroll claims, “So, I guess what I can say is that was very early on [in our relationship]. [That was] Madison and I trying to figure out what we were. We both hadn’t done the, you know, ‘you’re my girlfriend, and you’re my boyfriend’ talk, right?”

Obviously this didn’t look good for Kroll. Calling LeCroy crazy when she finds him with two women and panties on his floor doesn’t exactly paint Kroll in a great light. To add fuel to the fire, LeCroy decided this was a prime opportunity for revenge — and it looks like she took it.

After how she was treated by Austen Kroll when she found him with two women, it’s not a big surprise that Madison LeCroy decided to strike back. And while revenge might not be the best way to solve your problems, it seemed to give the Southern Charm star some pleasure.

During an episode of Watch What Happens Live, LeCroy claims she had no idea that one of the women was filming the incident. When Andy Cohen asked if she thought Kroll had been unfaithful, she said yes. She added, “I said, ‘Well it looks to me like a hall pass. I can do whatever.”

LeCroy essentially confirmed that she cheated on Kroll in retaliation for his behavior. Now, the two have broken up, and Austen Kroll is seemingly heartbroken.

A total admission

The two have officially fully broken up, and Austen Kroll made this apparent on the third episode of Southern Charm. After meeting up with friends Craig Conover and Shep Rose at a bar, Austen Kroll declares, “That was a total admission.” He’s talking about allegations of Madison LeCroy sliding into other guys’ DMs on Instagram.

Kroll’s friends do their best to comfort him, but it’s clear that Kroll isn’t ready for that just yet. “I’m glad we have each other is what I’m cheersing to, because at the end of the day, we have each other,” said Conover.

Kroll fires back with, “I just had a f*cking conversation with the person that I thought really mattered in my life, so please have a little bit of compassion.” While it seems as if his friends believe this breakup is for the best, it’s apparent Kroll can’t see that just yet.
