Elle King called Chris Young an “a-hole” after he shouted at his partner to “get your wife!”
While filming Blake Shelton and Carson Daly’s new movie, “Barmageddon,” on USA Networks, the two country singers clashed in wild bar games, including “air cannon cornhole,” “keg curling” and “grease ax.”
However, according to a witness, things started to get tense between Young, 37, and King, 33, when he started wining and talking smack.
Young is said to have spoken to her boyfriend, Dan Tooker, who was watching from the audience, and told him, “Come and get your wife!”
The source – who was at the recording back in April 2022 – said, “I can’t hold my tongue about how country singer Chris Young treated Elle King. He talked her down because she was a woman.
“I’m sure the network will make him not look so bad, but as soon as he started to come into his own – in the bar games and didn’t talk like the boys did, he couldn’t control himself.” He was seeing red.
“He called her names and even yelled at a boy she was with saying ‘Come and get your wife’ — what was he going to do? So stupid. The whole fleet saw and heard it.”
The interaction was not included in the final broadcast, which was released last week.
However, when asked recently who was the most competitive on the series, host Shelton told ET, “Chris Young,” as Daly added, “Chris Young had competition.”
Despite the incident that was left out of the episode, King spoke with the accused sex worker and explained why he named his last album, “Come and Get Your Woman.”
“The title of this album came about because a famous donkey tried to shout ‘Come and get your wife’, I pretended I wasn’t even married, because I was playing a game. I was like, ‘Ha ha would it be fun if I called my record that?’ So I did it,” he wrote on Instagram on Monday.
He also added somewhere on Instagram, “Remember one time I was hitting the hole at a game and he yelled, “Come and get your wife!” to my partner!?!? And I’m not even married! Lol. Thanks for the album title, babe 😉.”
A rep for Young, his record manager did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment. Or the King’s representatives.
A representative for USA Network, which is owned by NBC Universal, did not get back to us either.
