American Idol judge Luke Bryan's wife shuts down rumor Wyatt Pike quit show after 'PUNCHING star in face in nasty fight'

LUKE Bryan's wife Caroline Boyer has shut down a rumor that singer Wyatt Pike left American Idol because they got in a nasty fight.

Fan sites had begun spreading a wild theory that Wyatt, 20, mysteriously quit the show after punching Luke in the face and giving him a black eye.

One TikToker claimed this was the real reason Luke, 44, missed an episode of American Idol.

Luke was replaced by Paula Abdul earlier this month after revealing he had contracted Covid.

His wife Caroline, 41, backed up his story while clapping back at the TikTok user for claiming he'd been punched.

“Trust me, he has Covid,” she commented on the clip.

“I kinda wish there was a fight. I’m sick of taking care of kids alone and sanitizing. I’m peeing Lysol!!!”

Luke announced on April 12 that he'd be missing the first live show of American Idol.

“I’m sad to say I won’t be a part of tonight’s first live @AmericanIdol show,” he tweeted.

“I tested positive for COVID but I’m doing well and look forward to being back at it soon.”

Season favorite Wyatt left fans baffled earlier this month when he abruptly quit the show, despite making it into the top 12.

The talented rocker simply said he left the show for "personal reasons" and added that he's happy he "gets to play music for the rest of his life".

Ryan Seacrest confirmed he had departed the series during the recent live episode.

He said: "Before we get to the results, I have to tell you that finalist Wyatt Pike will not be competing in the competition."

"He had to drop out, but we wish him the very best."

Wyatt broke his silence on the speculation last week, telling fans on Instagram that he bowed out due to "personal reasons".

He wrote: "I had to leave the @AmericanIdol competition for personal reasons but am so thankful I get to play music for the rest of my life."

The rumor comes after a video surfaced appearing to show Luke punchinga fan during a 2016 concert.

The country singer was performing at Charlie Daniels‘ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam along with other high profile artists.

Bryan was belting out his song Move when he stopped at the edge of the stafe and looked down at a man on the front row.

In the video footage it appears that Bryan jumped from the stage and allegedly shoved the fan in the face before getting back on the platform to finish his performance.
