Women everywhere empathized with Jennifer Lopez after the pop star found out about blonde bombshell Madison LeCroy around the same time we all did.

A surefire way to know if a man has cheated is how vigorously he denies everything when the jig is up.

Alex Rodriguez's reps immediately denied rumors that he was romantically involved with the sexy Southern Charm star.

Madison also denied everything -- until she finally came clean.

It all started last week when rumors spread that Madison flew to Miami to hook up with the former NY Yankees star.

Madison is exactly A-Rod's type: she's young, blonde and beautiful with legs for days.
 

Madison's ex-boyfriend Austen Knoll even weighed in saying Madison FaceTimes Alex, "all the time."

Madison denied the allegations and even asked to take a lie detector test. "I never flew to Miami. Where's the [receipts]? That's fake," she said.

But then she admitted what her friends already knew: "[Alex] contacted me and, yes, we DM'd, but other than that, there was nothing. I've never physically seen him, touched him," she said.

Madison's fans noticed that A-Rod had previously "liked" one of her Instagram photos.
 

A source close to Alex vigorously denied the rumors, telling E! News, "Alex doesn't know her and has never met her."

Another source told the New York Post, "He doesn't know this woman. Look, does this mean he didn't DM her and liked a photo or two? I guess not, but he doesn't know her — and he definitely didn't hook up with her."

Well, you know what happens when a man denies a woman's very existence: she comes clean some more.

The 31-year-old Charleston hairstylist told Page Six that she and A-Rod haven't met in person, but they have spoken over the phone.

If you recall, she said they only DM'd each other previously.

Madison confessed that they spoke on the phone more than once. But she claimed their phone conversations were, "innocent."

She explained to Page Six, "I don't know what to do... I have tried to be as quiet as possible. I don't want anything bad for his family, or for mine. We are definitely innocent in this.”

"I told the wrong person [about talking with Rodriguez]," she sighed.

When Bravo producers found out about Madison's hunky Miami connection, she warned them they couldn't use that in the reality TV series out of respect for J-Lo.

Poor J-Lo. She must be heartbroken.
