Fighting in quarantine
“I definitely think that quarantine was either gonna make it or break [our] relationship, and unfortunately, we did not come out stronger,” LeCroy stated to Us in December of 2020. “We were not even in quarantine with each other. We were for a brief duration of time, and after that, I believe we both thought that there were an excessive amount of things that had occurred in the past to play together in 14 consecutive days something like that.”
