Sam Hunt has done his best to stay out of the spotlight over the years, especially when it comes to his personal life, however it appears as though he an his wife are getting divorced.
According to TMZ, Sam’s wife Hannah Lee Fowler has filed for divorce after five years of marriage, citing infidelity as the reason.
The complaint filed in states that Sam is “guilty of inappropriate marital conduct,” as well as “guilty of adultery” and while it has not been previously announced, also says that she is pregnant and expecting their first child together in May.
She also asks for alimony, primary custody of their unborn child, and child support as well. The document also notes that they “separated at the time of filing” which was this past Friday.
It’s pretty well known that Sam’s breakout album Montevallo was written about and inspired by his relationship with Hannah Lee. They married in 2017.
In April of 2021, Sam shared an anniversary picture with her, however since then she’s not been featured on his social media.
Back in 2019, he was arrested after police were notified that a driver was going the wrong way down Ellington Parkway in Nashville around 4am. After they conducted a BAC test, he registered a blood alcohol over twice the legal limit at a level of 0.173.
“It’s not that I don’t drink at all, but I put myself in a position by being out, seeing friends at a show, leaving my phone in an Uber. We’d Uber’d all night, then went back to a friend’s house, had some pizza.
I fell asleep on the couch, woke up groggy. I should’ve been more conscious, but I wasn’t. So I take responsibility.”
He pleaded guilty to two counts of DUI in the Davidson County Circuit Court and was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail.
Under the plea, all of the jail time will be suspended save for 48 hours, which will be served alternatively at the DUI Education Centers in addition to completing an alcohol safety course.
His most recent album, Southside, was released in 2020 featuring the hit single “Body Like A Backroad,” as well as chart-toppers “Kinfolks,” “Hard To Forget,” and “Breaking Up Was Easy In The ’90s.”
In addition to his own single, “23,” he was also recently featured on an Ingrid Andress collaboration titled “Wishful Drinking.”
