Sam Hunt’s six-months-pregnant wife Hannah filed for divorce, citing adultery

Y’all remember when Eva Amurri filed for divorce from Kyle Martino while she was pregnant with their third child? I always think: wow, the guy has really f–ked it all up if his pregnant partner dumps him cold. I always think: the guy’s behavior must be especially heinous. Well, now country singer Sam Hunt’s pregnant wife has left him. She filed for divorce just a few months before she’s due to give birth to their first child. What did he do?

Hannah Lee Fowler, the wife of country singer Sam Hunt, has filed for divorce just months before she’s due to give birth to the couple’s first child, alleging that the star cheated on her, PEOPLE confirms. Fowler claimed the “Take Your Time” singer, 37, was guilty of “inappropriate marital conduct” and “adultery” in documents recently filed in Tennessee, according to TMZ, who was first to report the news.

Though the couple — who married in April 2017 — had not publicly announced that they were expecting, the documents reveal that Fowler is pregnant and due in May. She is asking for alimony, child support and primary custody of the child, as well as for each party to be “awarded their respective separate property.”

“The husband is guilty of such cruel and inhuman treatment or conduct toward the spouse as renders cohabitation unsafe or improper,” the documents state. Neither Fowler nor a rep for Hunt have commented to PEOPLE on the divorce news and cheating allegations.

That People article has some backstory on their relationship: they dated for four years in their early 20s, then broke up when he moved to Nashville, then he definitely went out of his way to pursue her again and convince her to give him another chance circa 2016. Knowing what we know now, it definitely seems like she was on her guard when they first started up again, and her sixth sense said “maybe not” and “perhaps we shouldn’t revisit this.” It also feels like most of Sam Hunt’s songs are about drinking, and he has at least one DUI that we know about. Meaning, there could be significant alcohol abuse issues on top of everything else. Alcoholism, adultery, your pregnant wife not feeling safe in the same house… this dude has f–ked it all up.

    Don’t know who they are, but she’s gorgeous. He’s a dick and an idiot.

  2. Wiglet Watcher says:

    Idk who this guy is. I do know that if you’ve been caught for a DUI you’ve probably got away with driving while intoxicated dozens or hundreds of times before. I’m sure she has excellent reasons to be done with him.

  3. Noki says:

    Yes you have to be a special kind of a**hole to cheat on a pregnant woman.

  4. girl_ninja says:

    I hope she can get away from him forever and keep her and her child safe. What a scumbag.

  5. Megs283 says:

    His song “23” has weird vibes. Basically he’s saying – despite all you’ve done and who you’ve married, he’s always be the one who had you when you were 23. 😬 it’s really possessive.

  6. PlainJane says:

    I have always liked his music and am very sorry to read that he didn’t take his DUI arrest seriously, I.e. take a long, hard look at his choices, and start acting right. I appreciate that his (soon to be ex) wife is prioritizing her health and well-being, and that of their child.

    I am not diagnosing him, but I have lots of alcoholics in my family. It is a vicious disease. People can change, but they have to want it. Maybe this will be his wake up call.

    Country music weirdly glorifies drinking. I know there always been songs about drinking but in the past fifteen years it’s gone crazy. They’ve dialed everything up to 11 and it’s really not healthy.

      Erica you are not kidding. I went to see Hootie (Darius Rucker) and the band before him had a full bar set up on stage and everyone just kept serving themselves during the concert?!? Darius was great but clearly had a few at the “on stage bar”

    For a minute there, I thought this was Jamie from Ted Lasso and I was disappointed.

    Then I read the story and do not care about the dude but hope that Hannah finds peace in the future. Filing seems to be the first step.

  9. Courtney says:

    What an absolute a**hole. He chases after her after they break up, convinces her to try again, MARRIES her, waits until she’s PREGNANT with her FIRST child, and then cheats on her. I don’t care if he is an alcoholic, that’s no excuse to put someone in this position. I hope she takes every penny she deserves.

    Most common time for men to become abusive is during a pregnancy…

  11. L4Frimaire says:

    You know a relationship isn’t worth salvaging when you’re filing for divorce while pregnant. Wishing her well and that he doesn’t cause her any problems.

  12. Katherine says:

    Mad respect to her. Sending my warmest thoughts and well wishes.

  13. Lila says:

    Wishing her and the baby much happiness and support and love going forward. It takes strength and courage to leave a situation while pregnant. Much respect that she isn’t putting a bandaid on something not working (or writing a self help book or making a podcast *cough*cough*).

  14. Renee' says:

    I loved (past tense) Sam Hunt, but there is no excuse for his behavior. He talked in the past about how in 2016 he made 7 trips to Hawaii to visit Hannah (she was doing missionary work as a nurse I believe) to convince her to take him back. He clearly is not deserving of her.

    Hannah seems like a genuine, good person. I wish her all the luck and am sending her well wishes. She’s better off to get out now.

    • goofpuff says:

      Many women wouldn’t have the emotional strength to leave an abusive partner much less while pregnant. I’m impressed by how strong she is to get out of there and make sure she and her child are protected.
