Over the past few weeks, rumors have been swirling about Craig’s love life after fans began to notice his flirty interactions with Summer House stars Paige DeSorbo and Ciara Miller, who also happen to be two of his Winter House co-stars. However, Craig recently denied rumors that he may have hooked up with Paige or Ciara, and he insisted he’s still in a relationship with girlfriend Natalie Hegnauer.
“Well, there’s a lot that happens in Winter House, but no, I’m still with my girlfriend, Natalie, here in Charleston,” he said in an interview earlier this month.
Nevertheless, it seems something might have gone down between Craig and Natalie since then because, according to Paige, Craig is a single man.
“He had a girlfriend for a long time,” she said on the Chicks in the Office podcast on April 25 per Heavy. “He would never cheat on his girlfriend and definitely not with me, like that would just never be a situation, but right now we’re just friends, not dating, nothing crazy.”
Furthermore, an Instagram fan account known as That Bravo Life also received a tip from a source on April 14 claiming Natalie had ended the relationship.
“She broke up with him a week or two ago,” the person alleged.
Craig first met Natalie when Austen Kroll introduced them during a trip to Aspen in January 2020. A few months later, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the couple decided to quarantine together in Craig’s Charleston home. As a result, Natalie became friendly with several of Craig’s Southern Charm co-stars, and she eventually made several appearances on the show.
Though Craig has yet to confirm the split, Natalie shared a rather cryptic post on April 28 via Instagram.
“Just like that it was a new day,” she captioned a photo of herself posing with her hand on her hip.
