Madison LeCroy Responds To Ex Austen Kroll Calling Her ‘F-King Medusa’

Madison LeCroy has hit back at ex-boyfriend Austen Kroll who likens her to ‘f–king Medusa’.

“Well, if I were Medusa, I would have turned his ass to stone a long time ago,” LeCroy jokes, referring to Medusa’s snake hair that turns people to stone, to Vidak For Congress.

The “Southern Charm” star jokes that if he compares Medusa’s thick head of hair to hers, she’ll “take it as a compliment.”

Kroll, 35, nicknamed his ex after watching LeCroy, 31, announce her engagement to Brett Randle via Amazon Live in October.

“What a poor bastard he is for a lifetime of service with f–king Medusa,” Kroll said, referring to Randle as he watched the announcement live with co-stars Craig Conover and Shep Rose.

LeCroy, who dated Kroll for two years before retiring in 2020, adds that prior to her engagement she thought the two were “civil” and had “moved on.”

“It was until I got engaged — then he started talking bad about me,” LeCroy tells us. “Because if you go back to the first episode, you know, he’s still playing games, and then I get engaged, and he’s instantly upset.”

The Bravolebrity adds that Kroll “showed his true nature” with his response, and that at least she hoped for a simple “congratulation” from him.

“I thought I was actually quite nice because I wish him the best. But you know, now I’m taking that back,” she says.

Kroll has since moved on to ‘Southern Charm’ newcomer Olivia Flowers, who has already made headlines with LeCroy both on and off the camera.

LeCroy tells us she was shocked even more than Kroll when Rose pulled out his wallet and encouraged his friends to bet on how long the engagement would last.

“I’ll say I was a little surprised by Shep’s response,” explains LeCroy. “I mean, he starts talking, and he’s shaking, and he’s like he’s getting all nervous, talking about me being engaged. And I’m like, they really care about what I have. Thanks, but no thanks.”

The mother of one, who has feuded with both Conover and Rose in the past, teases that she may have to “cut off the snake’s head” with Rose, 42, again at the “Southern Charm” reunion.

LeCroy became engaged to Randle after seven months of dating in October 2021 and will tie the knot in November in an intimate (no more than 35 people) destination wedding.
