“Come get your wife!” Elle King called Chris Young an “a-hole” after he yelled at her partner.
While filming Blake Shelton and Carson Daly’s new show “Barmageddon” on USA Networks, the two country singers faced off in wild bar games including “air cannon cornhole,” “keg curling” and “drunken ax hole.”
However, according to a witness, things became tense between 37-year-old Young and 33-year-old King, who began to win and speak well.
“Bring your wife!” she said to her fiancé, Dan Tooker, who was watching from the audience. Young said.
The source — who was at the recording in April 2022 — claimed, “I can’t stop talking about how that country singer Chris Young treated Elle King. He spoke ill of her because she was a woman.
“I’m sure the network cut it so he wouldn’t look bad, but once she started talking like guys do in bar games, he couldn’t stand it. He was seeing red.
“He called her names and then yelled over her head to someone she was with, ‘You better get your wife.’ So stupid. The whole crew saw and heard it.
The interaction was not included in the final broadcast, which aired last week.
However, when recently asked who was the most competitive person on the series, host Shelton told ET, “Chris Young,” and Daly added, “Chris Young was very competitive.”
Although the incident was left out of the episode, King addressed the sex accusation and explained why he titled his latest album “Come Get Your Wife.”
“The title of this record came about because some famous bastard tried to yell ‘Come on your wife,’ and I was like, ‘I’m not married, because I kicked him in a game. I’m like, ‘Ha ha wouldn’t it be cool to call my record that?’ And so I did,” she wrote via Instagram on Monday.
She added in a separate Instagram post, “One time I was hitting some a-hole in a game and he yelled, ‘Bring your wife!’ To my partner!?!? And I’m not married! Break it up. Thanks for the album title, baby.
A representative for Young, his record label, did not immediately respond to PageR’s request for comment. Neither did the King’s representatives.
