Kristin Cavallari Is Shutting Down The Southern Charm Romance Rumors

This season of Southern Charm proves every bit the messy show that we remember. Between Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy's intense, on-and-off relationship and Craig Conover's new girlfriend, the show brings the drama in droves. Recently, the drama between LeCroy and Kroll spilled over onto social media — again.

Fans noticed as Kroll commented on Kristin Cavallari's bikini-clad Instagram post, saying, "See you next week! Keep breaking the internet in the meantime." Making matters more confusing, Page Six reports that Kroll's ex, LeCroy, commented on Cavallari's ex-husband Jay Cutler's video, writing, "See y'all soon." A complicated love square fit for reality TV, the group made things even more interesting after Instagram stories surfaced featuring Cavallari sitting on Kroll's shoulders during a weekend spent partying together.

The outlet reports that Cavallari hung out with Kroll, Craig Conover, and her hairstylist best friend, Justin Anderson, in Nashville earlier this month — with her stylist documenting the whole thing on his Instagram stories. Sparking rumors of a fledgling romance, Cavallari's night out with the Southern Charm star had fans speculating about her relationship with Kroll.

Kristin Cavallari took to Instagram to set the record straight

Fans saw as Kroll flipped off the camera and sang along with Taylor Swift's song, "Mean," making it clear that he and LeCroy were still broken up. From the Instagram stories, many assumed that his new beau was none other than Kristin Cavallari. At another point in the Instagram series, Kroll dances with the former star of The Hills and lifts her up on his shoulders. Following the media storm, she took to Instagram to explain that their relationship was platonic. "I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to have FRIENDS that are guys," she said in her stories with a drawn-out eye roll, according to People. Apparently, the two are not romantically linked.

Cavallari's rumored beau, comedian Jeff Dye, cryptically commented on the matter as well. People reports that the two were seen kissing in a Chicago bar after her divorce from Cutler and recently took a trip to Mexico together. After headlines broke with speculation surrounding Cavallari and Kroll's relationship, Dye tweeted, "He wishes," alongside a winking emoji.

A source shared details of the pair's dalliance with the outlet, saying, "Kristin had a great weekend in Cabo San Lucas. She was with friends and Jeff. They stayed at the Nobu Hotel, enjoyed the pool and fun dinners. Kristin and Jeff were very affectionate. She was beaming around him."
