Morgan Wallen found himself on TMZ again this weekend… for a little while.
Obviously Wallen has had his share of unflattering stories come out in the past couple of years, highlighted by the video that was released in 2021 showing the country superstar using a racial slur outside of his Nashville home.
He’s mostly managed to stay out of the news since then though, other than stories about his Dangerous: The Double Album breaking records and drawing in massive crowds for his latest tour.
But yesterday, TMZ reported that Wallen was caught on video in a Nashville bar pouring a drink down a woman’s shirt.
The only problem: That’s not what the videos showed. At all.
In their original story, TMZ reported on two videos shared by TikTok user @reillyvidendese that shows Wallen at Jason Aldean’s bar on Broadway with a blonde lady friend (who’s not fellow country singer Megan Moroney, as many speculated in the comments).
The first video shows Morgan greeting fans at the bar surrounded by his entourage.
But it’s the second video that really stirred the controversy.
The aforementioned blonde woman appears to grab Morgan’s hand and try to pull him away as he’s talking to someone else. Morgan appears to pull back his hand, and then a few seconds later walks back over to the blonde. He then picks up a drink and appears to act like he’s going to pour it on her before pulling it away.
“Morgan creeps up behind her and quickly drops a full cup’s worth of liquid right down the front of her shirt, which clearly leaves her shocked.”
Yeah, that definitely didn’t happen. You can even see in the video that Morgan’s glass is still full after he jokingly “poured” it down her shirt.
And Morgan Wallen fans let TMZ hear it after a quick watch of the videos clearly proved that their story was bullshit:
Come on @TMZ… y’all are better than this. You can CLEARLY see @MorganWallen with a full cup of beer after JOKING like he was going to pour it down her shirt. This is click bait and nothing short of lies.

Morgan Wallen has the maturity of an 8th grade boy, but the video didn’t show what the headline said and it looks like TMZ took it down. It was pretty obvious he didn’t pour the drink on the woman just by watching it.
TMZ has since deleted the article, as well as their tweet about it.
But as Saving Country Music pointed out, numerous outlets that reposted the article haven’t taken it down, and the post is still up on TMZ’s Facebook page, with the comments largely calling them out for misrepresenting what was shown in the video.
So yeah, probably a position Morgan doesn’t need to be putting himself in with all the (deserved) scrutiny he’s faced in the past. But it also definitely doesn’t show him “pouring a drink down a woman’s blouse” as the headline claimed.
Either way, seems like Morgan probably just needs to take his own advice and leave them Broadway girls alone for awhile.
