Amid rumors of a physical fight between ‘American Idol’ judge Luke Bryan and contestant Wyatt Pike, Luke’s wife Caroline reacted to the speculation on TikTok.
Contestant Wyatt Pike‘s mysterious exit from American Idol birthed a wild rumor: the 20-year-old singer left the competition because of an alleged physical fight with one of the judges, Luke Bryan. Of course, this is just an unfounded fan theory, which Luke’s wife Caroline Bryan confirmed after seeing one of these rumors herself online. “Trust me, [Luke] has covid. I kinda wish there was a fight. I’m sick of taking care of kids alone and sanitizing. I’m peeing Lysol!!!,” Caroline responded to a fan on TikTok on April 18, according to a screenshot of the comment that E! News obtained.
The rumors swirled after Luke missed the April 12 episode of American Idol, which was the very same episode that Wyatt’s departure was announced on. “I’m sad to say I won’t be a part of tonight’s first live @AmericanIdol show. I tested positive for COVID but I’m doing well and look forward to being back at it soon,” the country music star tweeted, hours before Ryan Seacrest dropped a bombshell announcement on viewers.

Despite quitting American Idol, Wyatt’s not quitting music. In fact, he dropped a surprise song called “Friday Nights,” exactly one week after he left the singing competition show.
