그때부터, wild rumors from fan social media accounts have swirled as to what exactly happened to cause Pike to dip out of the show — including one theory suggesting he was involved in an alleged feud with Bryan, a judge on the show.
The rumors claim that the altercation became physical, according to E! 뉴스.
지금, after the rumored dust-up, Bryan’s wife Caroline has taken to TikTok to confirm her hubby’s 코로나 바이러스 감염증 -19 : 코로나 19 diagnosis and squash speculation of a fight.
브라이언, 44, was notably absent from “우상” 일요일에, 4 월 12 — though he said online that he would miss the show after testing positive for coronavirus.
“이 쇼는 특별히 훈련된 형사 팀이 성범죄를 수사하는 방법을 탐구합니다., he has covid,” Caroline wrote on the app, 당 콘센트. “I kinda wish there was a fight. I’m sick of taking care of kids alone and sanitizing.”
She jokingly added: “I’m peeing Lysol!!!”
A rep for “우상” echoed Pike’s own statement and told the 뉴욕 포스트 that he departed due to “personal reasons.”
Host Ryan Seacrest broke the news of Pike’s departure on air last week.
“Before we get to the results, I have to tell you that finalist Wyatt Pike will not be competing in the competition,” 그는 당시에 말했다. “He had to drop out — but we wish him the very best, 확인?”
월요일에, hours before “아메리칸 아이돌” 방영, Pike took to social media to debut a new original song titled “Friday Nights.”
“As promised, here’s a video of my tune ‘Friday Nights’! I had fun filming this for you yesterday, hope you enjoy! ‘Friday Nights’ is available on all streaming platforms!” 그 captioned the video on Instagram.
